A New You in the New Year

Meditation and Mindfulness – As multi-taskers we may not be as efficient as we think. We all need to be in the present, to focus our minds and clear our thoughts from timeto time.
Restful and regular sleep – Do you make sure you get a good night’s sleep of at least 6 to 8 hours?  If you need help falling asleep or staying asleep do talk to your doctor as there are many sleep aids available.
Balanced diet – smaller portions of healthy foods certainly make a difference to our waistlines, our energy levels and our risk of obesity-related diseases.
Exercise – it just takes a forty minute walk a day (preferably in nature) or any other aerobic exerciseto keep you feeling fitter and better
Yoga and Pilates – both these activities involve stretching out those important muscle groups and keeping your body supple and strong.

All the above can be done with the aid of classes,  the internet, useful Apps as well as your doctor’s recommendations.

Whatever you choose to do to improve your well-being, remember that one of the best ways to feel better both physically and emotionally is knowing you are helping others in whatever way you can.
Happy New Year!
“There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up”- John Andrew Holmes
