Wellness Wednesday Tip: Take A Nature Break

General Wellness


Simply being in nature is a great way to decompress in the middle of the day. You don't have to retreat to the middle of the mountains--- just find a quiet place outside and sit quietly for a few minutes. Take deep breaths and smell the fresh air. Also, pay attention to the sounds of nature and notice the little things around you. Do your best to let go of any thoughts or concerns that you may have, and give yourself a few minutes to truly relax. Taking a break and getting our body and mind out of our daily routine is a great way to relieve stress and bring a sense of peace and calm to our day.

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Grab the Good Stuff

Plan ahead for your lunches. This is a critical step in maintaining a healthy diet. Don't leave it to chance. If you do, you'll be much more susceptible to fall into old habits and reach for something unhealthy. The next time you go to the supermarket, make a list and buy specific ingredients for your lunchtime meals. Make sure you prepare them ahead of time. It is important that they are convenient, nutritious, and delicious!

Wellness Wednesday Tip: Forgive Yourself

Give yourself a break! An occasional indulgence in a high-calorie treat won't negate all of your hard work. It's ok to diverge and "cheat" every now and then. Just make it the exception and not the rule! Do not give that treat so much power. Instead of focusing on guilt or feeling bad about yourself, just get back on track by trying to fit a little extra exercise in over the next few days.
