Why wait for Monday when you can start changing your life now.
At first, we promised ourselves that from the New Year we would change something in our life, after that we wait for the end of the string of holidays and vow that after all the commotion we will lose weight, sign up for dances, go to English courses, and so on, and then we begin to hope for every Monday. If you are familiar with this situation, then consider this article a sign from above and a call to immediate action. We decided that 2022 should be healthier, more conscious and happy, so we have collected several habits that will definitely change your life right now and you will not need to wait for another Monday. We advise you to make sure of this by personal experience!
Replace “sorry” with “thank you”
This is a good practice that allows you to raise your importance in the eyes of others and yourself. What does such a verbal castling mean? It’s simple: in those moments where you want to apologize, thank people. Here’s an example, you are late and usually say, “Sorry for being late,” but instead try saying, “Thank you for waiting for me.” Do you feel the difference? In this case, you do not lose respect, plus thank people, and our human nature loves that.
Make your bed every morning
As lazy as you are, this ritual teaches discipline and order. Before you blink an eye, the ability to prioritize and structure what is happening will take root in your life.
Unsubscribe or mute accounts that don’t inspire you.
Why waste time with groups and people who simply steal your time without giving anything in return. Less is better, but better!
Schedule medical appointments for the year
A medical examination is an important component of every person, it is a pity that many ignore this. From my own experience, I was convinced that it is better to predict the ailment than to treat its advanced stage afterwards. Schedule visits to your primary care providers: gynecologist, mammologist, dentist, and therapist. There is nothing wrong with that, and your health will tell you: “Thank you!”. To make the visits to the doctors less stressful, schedule them for a year.
Choose the right meditation app
Meditation helps not only to calm the nervous system, but also to find answers to your questions. Today, there are many applications that will help you enter the world of meditation, the main thing is to choose your own and adhere to the schedule and advice of coaches.
Strike a child’s pose every time you feel stress.
The Child or Balasana Pose is one of the most soothing asanas in yoga and it instantly relieves the body and mind of bouts of stress. Simply sit on the floor or bed on your heels and lower yourself slowly until your forehead touches the surface. Put your hands along the body or stretch it forward, direct the tailbone towards the floor, and stretch the spine behind your hands and breathe. A simple pose like this can do wonders for your nervous system.
Don’t forget about outdoor hiking
We don’t think it’s worth describing how fresh air and light physical activity can have a charitable effect on our health. Just train yourself to go outside for at least half an hour, even in winter.
Add leafy greens to sauces and dressings
Such a simple component as leafy greens is a storehouse of vitamins. So don’t forget to add it to your culinary creations. Editorial advice: make preparations for the season and then you will always have a vitamin bomb in your freezer.
Eat with love, not self-criticism
Try to restructure your outlook on eating in general. Eat with pleasure and respect for yourself, and do not engage in self-flagellation over a plate. Food should bring joy, not frustration.
