Focus on small more achievable targets to attain optimum health
- Healthy nutrition: Eating superfoods, drinking power juices as well as lots of water will recalibrate your system.
- Focus on the important: Prior to leaving your bed in the morning and prior to starting work on your desk, take five minutes for a quick self-check-in by turning your attention to those important things that make people successful
- Stop procrastinating: Procrastination affects your health in two ways – stress, that has been linked to various health issues; produced behaviors , including poor sleep as well as high levels of anxiety, depression and lower immunity.
- Think of your workout as a necessity rather than plain leisure: The mental mirrors the physical. Thus, make fitness a priority
- Make your bathroom more welcoming and turn your bathtub into a nervous system-soothing haven: Bring the spa experience to your bathroom. Let smoothing candles and soothing music provide that relaxing moment before you bathe or shower. As exercising creates inflammation, the recovery part is where we get stronger. Thus, your bathtub should be a nervous system-soothing haven. Bring in the red wine and Epsom salt.
- Escape and explore the world around you: Travelling and leaving your current environment at least three times this year will keep you calibrated.
- Change things: Change your bedroom and turn it into a stress-free environment. Likewise, change your hairstyle and hair care. Change your diet. Tweak your mind. Upgrade your hygiene
- Be constantly gratifying: Prevent negative stories from stressing and ruling your life. Emphasize the positive and positive results. Develop a list of all that you’re grateful for and review and/or update it first in the morning and before you go to bed.
- Use your free time wisely: Jazz bars and poetry venues can help soothe your stress away. Likewise, volunteering at a local shelter, the library, school, or in any way you can help someone else with improving their life will help alleviate or eliminate your own stress.
