This week we’ve got National Longevity Day, National Yoga Day, and National Thinking Day so we’ve got some of our very best tips on hand to keep healthy and fit this year- and we want to hear from you too!
There are many aspects to our health that need to be considered in equal measure. Health is not solely about how often we go to the gym or how many green smoothies we drink. Our wellbeing is much more extensive and inclusive, which can be both wonderful and overwhelming.
Our mental and emotional health are often the later to be considered, as they can oftentimes be less apparent when paid less attention, but they are no less important.
Here are some seemingly simple ways to maintain a healthy balance.
Having a few minutes of focused presence each day. We can often get too caught up in what is coming next that we completely overlook what is happening right now. Focusing a few minutes on the here and now can help us to balance out stress levels and boost gratitude!
Making a list of our strengths. We are all fantastic at many things. Listing these attributes out and stating them aloud can really focus our energy into supporting ourselves in what we want.
Moving our bodies (in ways that make us happy!) We are individuals, and much like our personalities, our bodies are not all the same. While some of us may truly love sweating in our in the gym, others need a walk outdoors, swimming, yoga, or even rock-climbing. Finding what makes us happy while being active can be a real gamechanger.
Drinking more water. Did you know that by the time we’re thirsty, we are already dehydrated? Most of us do not drink nearly enough water and we don’t realise it until it’s too late. Our bodies are made up of over 50% water. Let’s help ourselves run more effectively and drink up!
Finding one area we can improve. Whether it’s eating less meat, going for a longer walk, or drinking less alcohol, focusing on just one area we would like to improve upon at a time can lessen the chances of feeling overwhelmed and increase our likelihood of success in the long-run!
