In this episode, Suzanne discusses mindful strategies to stay healthy this fall season. Last week she focused on the HOME, this week she focuses on HEALTH and next week will be dedicated to HAPPINESS.
If you are a visual person, check out the Feelings Fitness Facebook and/or Instagram page to see a picture of the seven HEALTH categories for the week.
Below are a few highlights & resources for each category.
Plan 4 Productivity:
"If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail." - Benjamin Franklin
High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard + Planner
Do It Scared by Ruth Soukup + Living Well Planner
The One Thing by Gary Keller & Jay Papasan
Dress 4 Success:
When you dress better, you FEEL better
Less is more helps avoid decision fatigue
But, be sure to have what you need
Try out Stitch Fix...a shopping time saver.
Exercise 4 Emotions:
Use yoga for exercise(strength) and for emotions too.
Cardio - run and bike
Test out Peloton...not only great for exercise, but the instructors feel like life coaches too. You get off the bike feeling healthy in mind, body & spirit!
Eat 4 Energy:
Focus on fresh & seasonal produce
Use the Living Well Planner to help map out meals
Test out delivery services such as Blue Apron and/or Daily Harvest
Remember you are focusing on foods that fuel the mind, body & spirit.
Sleep 4 Synergy:
Sleep helps reset the body
Book: The Sleep Revolution by Arianna Huffington
Hair, Skin, & Nails:
Take note of these, they reveal a lot about what is happening internally
Look fresh, FEEL fresh, be more productive
Schedule these things not only as maintenance, but as pampering as well
Yoga & Mindfulness:
Although these could go into Exercise 4 Emotions, they deserve a category of their own.
Yoga is a tool for mindfulness/meditation
Suzanne introduced lion's breath as a tool to release tension, relieve stress, and alleviate anger. Be sure to test it out.
Use Fall Fresh Start as a way to work towards a new mindset well before the new year begins.
Use the Facebook and Instagram community as an accountability partner.
And as Marie Forleo says, "PROGRESS comes from ACTION not THOUGHT." Don't just think about starting fresh, get out and take action! You'll be happy you did.
