Many of us lead busy, stressful lives, and find it hard to make time for healthy activities. We understand that everyone has to work to make a living, but there are things that you can squeeze in to look after yourself – because after all, your health is the number one priority, and it’s not worth neglecting.
Even though it is very hard getting up early, it can be worth setting your alarm half and hour to an hour earlier to include some healthy routines in the morning.
In the morning, a lot of people feel fragile, and that is why it’s so important to start the day on the right foot.
Some people find that sitting and meditating for ten minutes as soon as they wake up is a good way to ease into the day. When you meditate, your thoughts come to the forefront, and it is a nice and relaxed way to unclutter your brain before you face a new day.
Take the time to make a healthy breakfast – this could be a smoothie, some wholegrain cereal, or some spinach and mushrooms fried in olive oil on toast. Getting some good nutrition into you is so important – this way you have the energy to get you through to lunch.
When you get home from work, after your chores are done, you might want to take a half an hour walk around the neighbourhood. You can do this after dinner, too, as a walk will help your food settle and assist you in gaining some peaceful sleep.
Some people go to the gym on their way home from work, and if that suits you, go for it! The idea here is to fit in small acts of self-care to stop you from slipping into a sedentary lifestyle.
We all like to have some fun on the weekend, but why not get some exercise in at the same time? A trip to the beach can be awesome, as you can get a full-body workout from swimming.
Take your dog for a run, or go to laser tag with your kids. Whatever you choose to do, try to stay active and eat healthily – see some of our previous blog entries to get some meal ideas. Healthy can be yummy too! Plus there are certain powerful natural remedies like olive leaf extract you can take for overall physical health.
