Here’s a simple way to boost your energy and stay healthy. Think “HEART” and it’s even easy to remember.
H-ydrate. With a radiant smile on her face, my 10-year old niece reaches for a glass of refreshing water throughout the day. “Delicious!,” she says. Fill your favorite container and enjoy at least 8 glasses of water a day.
E-xercise. Add more pep to your step. Use the stairs instead of the elevator, walk with a buddy, ride your bike. If exercise has been on your “round tuit” list for a while, start slowly… 5-10 minutes a day. Gradually work up to 20-30 minutes 4-5 times a week.
A-wareness. What we think and what we feel changes our body’s chemistry. Lift others up and celebrate yourself, and you’ll be rewarded with life-giving energy.
R-est. Take several breaks during the day—stretch, move your shoulders, take a brisk walk. Refill your water bottle! Be sure to get enough sleep each night.
T-ransform your mind. Embrace an attitude of gratitude. It’s impossible to be thankful and negative at the same time. Each small choice you make is life-affirming. And each life-giving choice is a victory for your soul.
Give yourself a high-5.
Pass It On!
