Thank you to everyone who entered the contest and participated by sharing it on Facebook, Twitter and with their friends! If you didn’t win this time around, there will be future opportunities. Sharing a few of my favorite tips for … being WELL … below!
Tea is simply representative “me-time”… taking a moment to breathe, re-center and re-focus. Form a ritual that you can go-to throughout the day that allows you to have a few moments to yourself. Clear your mind, find calm and a little peace. The phone, emails, meetings and any other things that require your attention in the day can wait. My version of tea time/ me-time often involves making tea early in the morning and heading out the door for a walk. Movement, meditation, tea… and a much happier start to the day.
Maybe you love difficult classes where you work up a big sweat. Or you’re training for a goal, like a race or weight loss. Perhaps buckets of sweat isn’t your thing. Whatever you like, try to squeeze in 30 minutes a day of active movement. Make your day more than moving from bed to your chair at work and back to the couch at night. You deserve so much better! Bonus points if you can head to the great outdoors and breathe in the outside air. If there’s one thing I’m guilty of, it’s not getting enough of this. Sleeplessness affects almost two out of three Americans. We have a country full of people tossing and turning, losing precious sleep. When you sleep your mind has time to process and file all the information you’ve absorbed over the day. Your body has time to repair. Sleep is also critical to keeping your immune system in top form and plays a major role in your longevity along with the awesome goodness of food and movement. Side effects of no sleep? Plenty: memory problems, lack of concentration, depression and not being as effective in your work or relationship life as you can be. Let’s all work to get a little more restful sleep by making a routine in the evening hours – have a cup of herbal (caffeine-free) tea, cut out the lights and electronics, stretch a little before bed or throw in a meditation.
