Staying healthy and active is an important part of life. Our emotional and mental health are equally as important as our physical health. What we nourish our body with, physically and mentally, has a huge impact on our overall wellness. There are plenty of ways to bring fun and enjoyment to nurturing our physical and mental bodies.
Meditation – Breath work is a great way to relax the body and mind. Not only will it bring peace and tranquility to you, calming the internal storm, but it promotes positive thinking which in turn creates positive output.
Yoga – a great tool for centering and grounding your energy. With a series of stretches and poses, you’ll gain both physical and mental strength and flexibility.
Physical Activity – Find an activity that’s fun for you, whether it be a sport, a bike ride, or dancing, and make it a part of your daily routine. This will help to instill healthy habits into your everyday life.
Cooking for Wellness – Just as physical activity is important, so is a healthy diet. Buy whole fresh foods at your local market and cook in a clean way. Focus on lean proteins, such as fish and poultry, low starch veggies, mainly green leafy veggies, and low sugar fruits such as berries which are rich in antioxidants. Sprinkle in healthy fats like oils and nuts as well as healthy whole grains like quinoa and brown rice.
