...because you are more important than that test, interview, lunch date, meeting, family dinner, soccer game, recital, grocery shopping, report, review…it’s tiring just thinking about it.
It’s important to take time each day to focus on your wellness and overall wellbeing. Simple things can have a big, positive impact on your health. They might seem like little things, but in the end, they all add up.
Here are some suggestions for small wellness acts you can incorporate into your daily routine.
Starting your day with fresh air and movement not only has physical benefits, it also kick starts a positive mindset. And it doesn’t have to mean going on a marathon 10km trek. Start off small, like a walk around the block and as you start to feel the positive changes, extend your morning walk. You may even find yourself picking up the pace, or even adding in an afternoon walk too.
...not because you have to. Pull out that book you were given for Christmas two years ago that is still sitting on the shelf and give it a go. Few things are better than being engrossed in a good book and losing all track of time and it’s important to exercise your mind too. And it's fun to delve into a different life.

There are over 700,000 podcasts (and nearly 30 million episodes!) out there about all manner of topics and subjects. Listen to podcasts on subjects you are passionate about, or want to know more about, or simply ones that make you laugh. You’ll soon see what all the fuss is about.
There is no shortage of great breathing exercises and guided meditation apps out there. One simple exercise that you can do anytime, anywhere is a technique known as box breathing. It’s called 'box breathing' because it consists of four counts of four. Picture a square with each side representing a different count to four. Start with a slow inhale to the count of four, hold for the count of four, exhale for four, hold for four…and repeat.
