I could talk about health and wellness all day long, I'm just a little bit passionate about it!
I'm lucky to be fit & healthy ('Fit at 40' blog post coming soon!), however as a myofascial & lymphoedema therapist I've worked with those who haven't and so this list of 8 is the tip of my wellness ideas iceberg.
I thought it was time to share some of my everyday ways;
Let your body wake slowly - set the alarm a few mins earlier.
Then stretch it out - wake up that fascia!
Drink a glass of water first, (before the coffee!) - help your organs.
Eat a variety of food; fruit, veg, meat, fish, chocolate. Moderation is the key, stagnate and you will more likely reach for the sweet stuff!
Make sure your food input & your energy output have a good balance.
In general - move more! For cardio - get that heart rate up too.
Think about how you hold your body with everyday movement - e.g., picking up the kettle - where's your shoulder going or mashing the potatoes, are you engaging your stomach muscles?
Allow your body to rest, switch off and recover...we are not robots!
Oooh, I could go on...Enjoy :-)
Any questions or if you'd like me to expand on any of the points above, I'd love to hear from you. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use our contact form on the website.
