The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is just weeks away. Take a break from it all and try a yoga class. The stress-free, calm atmosphere may just be what you need to feel energized and relaxed – all at the same time.
Do you exercise with your partner? Research shows that many couples have happier, healthier relationships when they work out together. The time you spend together will not only strengthen your muscles, but your bond too.
As you prepare for the holidays, bake your pies with a crust made out of oats! You’ll feel less guilty about indulging since it’s a healthier option.
Have a food you’re not super fond of, but at least can eat? Keep trying it! Over time, you’ll learn to (hopefully!) love the flavor.
Believe it or not, your skin reflects your health. Foods like salmon, broccoli, berries, cauliflower and cucumber are all great options to eat – as well as drinking plenty of water!
Want a snack? Nuts are a great source of protein and healthy fats. Snacking on them can also help you curb your hunger.
Off balance? Tiny sensory receptors – proprioceptors – are in charge of your balance & coordination. To gain more balance, try exercises like single leg deadlifts and spend more time barefoot.
Eat cereal for breakfast? How big are you flakes? Studies have shown that the smaller the flakes, the more you eat (since they fill the bowl more). Measure out a portion size so you can get a feel for how much it really is.
Purchase a plate that has a wide rim on it. You’ll think you’re getting more food, even though you’re not.
Want to decrease your chance of osteoarthritis? Walk! Walking and climbing can become difficult if you suffer from this, so any chance you get – walk! Take the stairs and take a break from your desk to stretch your legs and get outside.
