WELLNESS TIPS

BREATHE………

Conscious breathing is necessary throughout the day for optimal wellness.  Practice circular breathing, inhaling slowly through your nose to a count of 4, then exhaling through your mouth to a count of 8.  Complete 5 full deep breaths, then return to normal breathing.

HYDRATE………

Our bodies are about 65% water and require good daily intake of clean pure h2o to thrive and be well.  What’s the right amount of water?  Take your body weight in pounds, divide by 2, and that’s how many ounces of water you should aim to drink daily.

MOVE…..

I always say if you want to know ways to become more physical in your life, all you have to do is take a walk with a Physical Therapist!  They have the BEST ideas on ways to add healthy strengthening and toning movements into your day.  Don’t know a PT?  Start out by walking a short distance and gradually increase your time and intensity.  Consult your physician if regular exercise has not been a part of your past plan.

POSITIVE VISUALIZATION………

If you can dream it then you can achieve it.  Counsel, prayer, forward focus.  Practice daily imaging of your dreams and goals.
