Firstly, here’s wishing everyone a very health 2021!
In this first Monday of the New Year, I have listed a few things that have benefited me over the past couple of years and that I intend to continue pursuing. Maybe you might find some of these useful too.
Eating Healthier – A couple of years ago I attended a class on Whole Food Plant Based Diet that I found very interesting and helpful. While I cannot say that I am following all the recommendations completely, I do try and incorporate elements on this philosophy wherever possible. You might want to check out their (free) 21 Day Plant-based Kickstart course.
Yoga – It was around the same time as the healthy eating course that I first started doing Yoga. I must admit that I knew very little about it. A couple of years now, and I practise Yoga at least a couple of times a week. There’s nothing more that I can say about the benefits of Yoga, other than it goes beyond just physical exercise. This article has some sound tips to lead a healthier life.
Morning Walk – On the days that I am not practising Yoga in the mornings, I go for a brisk morning walk. This is a practice that I would strongly urge everyone to adopt.
Cold water baths – This might not be for everyone, but if your health permits, try having cold water baths. I have been doing this now for over a year. Check out this article if you want added motivation!
Minimalism – Of all the items in the list, this is the one where I have the most work to do. I do believe in the philosophy, but have not practised it as much as I would like. Maybe this is the year to pay more attention to this.
