Kickstart your January
We know it’s important to look after our mental health, but are we actually doing anything about it?
Focusing just a few minutes every day on your mental wellbeing can increase your resilience to feeling down, reduce stress, and create an overall sense of wellness in your life.
It’s no secret that many of us feel sluggish in January, but we can feel down at any time of the year. Make sure you bookmark this blog so you can come back to it whenever you need some motivation or a little mood boost.
Follow our key to wellness: Nutrition, Movement, Mindfulness.
Start your day with a Yoga Session
There are many benefits to morning exercise, including producing energy ready to take on the day ahead. Yoga helps to build muscle, while not proving too exertive.
Check out 15 Minute Yoga with Sarah Beth here.
Fancy a fitness challenge?
The Couch to 5k challenge is brilliant for beginners wanting to get into running. It will help you go from running for 1 minute non-stop, to 30 minutes of non-stop running – it really works too.
Keep nourished and hydrated
Keep yourself hydrated – aim for at least one litre a day! Grab a Nurtur bottle from reception – it holds 750ml of liquid, so finishing just two refills will help you smash your daily goal.
Plus, ensuring your diet is bursting with nutrients is essential to wellness. Start with something easy, like making one of these BBC soup recipes to get that 5-a-day in.
Every Friday we put out free breakfast for Nurtur residents in reception – make sure you join us! Plus we have lots of other activities throughout the year, including cooking classes and movie nights. Keep an eye on the events section of your portal.
End your day with mindfulness
Wind down with a 10-minute guided meditation session here on YouTube.
Not only can meditation help you to release the stresses of your day, but it can also ignite your creativity and imagination and create new perspectives for situations that cause you to worry.
