Improve your mind
Recent studies have revealed some curious things when it comes to the mind. Apparently if you do puzzle and brain teasers early in the day, it is like a workout session for the brain and keeps it sharp and thinking clearly and logically. A crossword or simple word games in your mid-morning break is a terrific way of maintaining your sharpness and keeping at bay dementia in the elderly.
How to keep your body looking good
Exercise is always fantastic for the body and resistance workouts will make your heart stronger. Walking is good for the heart but by adding a ‘resistance’ like walking up stairs, doing push-ups or lifting light weights, you can firm up muscles and boost your metabolism.
Self-help for your spirit
Being positive and sharing it with other people will reap many emotional rewards. It doesn’t have to be anything spectacular, as by appreciating something as simple as a well-cooked meal will make somebody close to you feel good, and boost your levels of positivity. What you give out will come back to you in other ways. Give out a positive and it will always come back. Unfortunately, this is also true for negativity so don’t go there.
We are what we eat
Get rid of all that unhealthy food and start from today to eat healthily. There are no substitutes for fruit, vegetables, and unprocessed food. If you are going to eat a fish, then it is more healthy if it actually looks like one. If you love a good burger, then buy the beef and make your own healthy alternative. For a snack eat an apple, for dessert how about a fruit salad. It isn’t always that straightforward to get started, but once you do, you will never go back.
How to end your day
Life is all about ‘wanting what you have’ rather than ‘having what you want.’ At the end of every day, try to find five minutes when you can reflect about all of the positive, healthy things you have achieved and any failures. Remember, tomorrow you can start again and ensure that those failures are turned into physical, emotional and mental triumphs.
