Maintaining a Healthy Mind
What month are we in? Year? I feel a little like this year has both flown by yet I feel I can’t remember what life was like before we entered this Covid century 🙂
There’s so much each of us as individuals are trying to navigate. Business and livelihood. Health and safety. Family and sanity.
I quite honestly, although always very grateful for teachers, never really understood the energy that they require to do their job well with consistent patience and nurture – even when you aren’t getting “back” the response you’d like to see. Man alive, what an eye opener it’s been home schooling my kiddies.
This is one reason I’m so keen to be trying Xcel for the next month or so. My kiddies and I are all different – my son needs more assistance with concentration and I have had some mental fatigue after a day of home school and anxiety around Corona-feels.
I genuinely believe in maintaining a healthy body and mind. Feeding your body with a nutritional eating plan and by default your brain with powerful natural fuels. It’s fundamental for an active, energetic and happy lifestyle.
Taking Xcel on top of a well balanced diet, loads of water for hydration and good quality sleep allows for that optimal brain health!
That includes switching off all technology and allowing your brain to fully rest before your head hits the pillow.
Meditation, for as little as 5mins before you sleep helps calm your mind too. Releases stress you may be carrying from the days events. Stress is so bad for your brain, literally can kill brain cells!
Exercise. Guys, I cannot stress this enough. 30mins of activity 6 days a week helps release endorphins which as I’m sure most of you know, is the happy hormone. Other than being physiologically good for you, it’s unbelievable for mental health too.
High omegas and low saturated fats in your diet is also so important. Leafy greens, berries, grains, avocado and fish are all excellent for brain health and function.
Combining all these things with a balanced lifestyle should create the best version of YOU and set your future self up with the healthiest life journey….
