The Benefits of a Massage

The relation between physical and mental wellbeing has a great impact on the quality and length of life and on the society as a whole. Mental wellbeing supports good physical health and vice versa. Therefore it is important that we pay equal attention to not only how we look, but also to how we really feel on the inside. Having a busy work and personal schedule, hurrying from one place to another, getting stuck in a traffic jam, multitasking ….the list goes on and on. Over time society adjusted to this lifestyle and therefore we tend to forget the negative effects this can leave on the body and mind. Stop for a second and rewind your daily routine. What does your morning look like? Are you one of those people who get ready in a few minutes before rushing out of the door to a busy work schedule full of deadlines and meetings whilst holding onto your favourite reusable coffee cup?

As a result, such a lifestyle can eventually lead to cardiovascular disease, obesity, anxiety, built up tension, stroke and many other complications. It is very important that we take a break for ourselves and every once in a while, truly enjoy our free time whilst contributing to our over all health and health-being.

After a good night’s sleep kick off the day with a nice warm drink to jump start your system and start hydrating your body once again. By adding lemon to the hot water this will activate your digestive system.

Stay active – move around

move

Would you like to feel alive and full of energy? Start with a stretch and then go for a run/walk or simply embark on an enjoyable exercise routine. By doing some movement first thing in the morning you will feel more energetic, be less stressed and will thus clear your mind in preparation for the day ahead.

Think positively

By thinking positive and looking forward to the day’s activities you will pave the way. If you think of a positive statement or spend a couple of minutes in stillness you will lift your mood and put a smile on your face.

Create a To-do list

Create an actionable to do list for the week ahead and assign tasks for each day, with each task assigned to the day of the week you are most likely to perform it. Then put the day’s tasks according to the order of the day and level of importance, i.e. when during the day you will be carrying out the task. Consult your list every morning and evaluate the tasks’ importance.

Eat A Healthy Breakfast

Healthy-Breakfast

If you are hungry you will think and perform less well and you will also be less fun to be with. Besides breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it breaks the fasting of the night and starts your metabolism. So go ahead, start your day with a healthy breakfast.
