You wouldn’t go to bed without charging your cellphone, so don’t forget to recharge yourself!
Recharge in a way that makes you feel good. Whether it be an hour of yoga, going to bed early, or spending some time with friends and family. It’s important to take a break and recharge.
There’s a reason people who eat healthy tend to feel better. A healthy diet can be directly linked to healthier habits and a healthier mind set.
Eating a diet balanced with vegetables, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins helps everyone reach their goals in a positive and healthy way.
Join a team, go for a jog, play a game of tag or head to the park with your dog. An active body produces higher levels of endorphins, the chemical your body produces that makes you feel happy.
Encouraging children and teens to be active is a valuable lesson they can take with them their entire lives. It acts as not only an outlet for stress, but also for making connections and building lifelong skills.
Be Social, or Don’t!
Sometimes to recharge, we just need to see a friend. No matter how busy your week gets, it’s important to schedule some time for yourself, whether it's seeing some friends and connecting on a deeper emotional level, or staying in and watching a movie with your pet. No matter how busy you get, don’t forget to do something that makes you happy.
Do what makes you happy, in moderation
Although it’s strongly encouraged to eat well and stay active, sometimes you need to do things just because you enjoy them. If you have the time, enjoy a couple hours playing video games, or treat yourself to an ice cream. Sometimes it’s the smallest instances of relaxation that can make us the happiest.
