I came across this article this weekend titled “C-19 Lifestyle Tips to Stay Healthy During the Pandemic”.
After a quick scan it became very clear that this article wasn’t actually about C-19. It was really about some solid tips to maintain a healthy body and mind just by having healthy habits.
Here are a few outtakes from the article:
Stay Active. This is really simple and easy to do. You don’t have to go to the gym or invest into a bunch of equipment for a home gym. Just go for a walk. Studies have shown that going for a 10-15 min walk right after a meal helps to regulate blood sugar and speed digestion.
Adequate Sleep. Sleep often times seems like a magical mythical creature that I’m on a constant quest to find. LOL! Sleep is magical though. Sleep is the time when your body goes into “repair mode” and boosts your immune system. The amount of time you need to sleep every night is highly individual. Focus on quality of sleep.
Diet and Nutrition. I’m no stranger to “emotional eating” or having dessert after dinner most nights during the week (it’s Emily’s fault). Doritos are the worst! Especially the purple bag ones Sweet and Spicy… Fortunately they are hard to find here in Hawaii. Stick with whole foods with dark leafy greens, fresh vegetables, and herbs that are high in loaded with vitamins and minerals.
Cope with Stress. Many times stress can be reduced just by getting up and going for a walk, or just changing the environment that you’re in. Get up and go into a different room or go for a drive around the neighborhood. When you change your environment you change what is happening in your mind.
Stay Connected. Send a message to a friend or family member that you have and tell them how awesome they are and that you appreciate them. That little tip will do wanders with your relationships.
Have a great start to your week! Eat a healthy dinner, go for a walk and hit the sheets.
And always GET NAKED!
