We like to put a lot of focus on eating healthily and pushing ourselves to exercise as regularly as we can and although these are great lifestyle choices we are overlooking some fundamental parts of our wellbeing.
Unfortunately there is no magic pill to optimum health, it takes some effort and focus. It also means some adaptations to the lives we are all living – which are all having to do at the moment anyway! However, it is the small habits of your everyday lives which make a big difference to our health.
How do you live your life?
Do you put time aside for yourself? Does your skin get to feel sunlight every day? How much love do you receive and feel in a day? Is your work purposeful? How stimulated is you brain? And how often do you move?
These are all valuable factors in how well we feel, so why not focus on changing small daily bad habits to positive ones. Being healthy will be a way of life rather than a burdensome task!
Simple daily life improvements
Here are some suggestions for daily life improvements (self-isolating friendly):
- Walk outside for 30 minutes at least once a day.
- Bring children or animals into your life in however you can responsibly: caring for something is warming to the soul. In these challenging times, arrange a video call with someone you care about or help someone in need.
- Be a friendly neighbour. No one seems to talk anymore but it’s very ‘human’ to be friends with people in our communities. Is there a vulnerable person who lives close to you? If so, offer to help them in this scary time for them.
- Bring music into your life, either through listening, singing or playing an instrument. Humankind have always communicated with sounds and it’s a great way to connect feelings and emotions on a deeper level.
- Develop yourself in whatever way that means to you, and work with purpose with an ultimate vision that you can see, hear and feel.
- Be true to yourself and respect yourself. If you are stuck in a rut, plan to get out of it, set yourself weekly sub goals and keep moving forwards. Small steps can lead to great things.
- Move every waking hour of your day – either just walk, stretch your arms, squat… whatever takes your fancy, just get some momentum running through your body.
- Meditate or at least have 15 minutes of your day to yourself, clearing your mind of thoughts and just check in with you.
In general, whilst you have the chance, do the things you love in life and give yourself the space you need to work through these changes in our lives.
