As we prepare and participate in the Holiday Season the Evolve team wants to remind each of you to take the time to take care of yourself! Here is a list of 30 ideas...just enough to get you through a month of wellness. Start today and repeat often!
1. Drink plenty of water: add lemon and basil garnishes for added color and flavor.
2. Take a daily walk.
3. Write down one thing each day for which you are grateful.
4. Give yourself a hand/foot massage using a peppermint or lavendar oil.
5. Smile to at least 10 people a day...you will both feel better!
6. Sit quietly for at least 5 minutes each day: do nothing, think nothing, simply BE.
7. Eat breakfast.
8. Try a new healthy recipe.
9. Take at least 10 deep breaths a day.
10. Leave a love note for someone special.
11. Listen to beautiful music...really listen!
12. Notice something you have never seen before on your commute to work.
13. Sit down and eat: no TV or other distractions.
14. Drink 8 ounces of room temperature water 30 minutes prior to eating.
15. Use a smaller plate to eat from. It will appear that you have a nice full plate of food and you won't over eat.
16. Get plenty of sleep.
17. Write down everything you eat for 30 days. You might be surprised by the results.
18. Commit to a workout routine with a friend. Hold each other accountable for "showing up".
19. Clean out one drawer a week. It is amazing how much freedom this will give you.
20. Reach down and touch your toes at least 5 times right after you get out of the shower.
21. Burn a nicely scented candle at your desk or work area.
22. Get a massage or take a Yoga class.
23. Grab a handful of almonds to snack on between meals.
24. Plant a container garden of herbs outside by your kitchen.
25. Move the TV out of the bedroom.
26. Stop working on computers and other hand held gadgets at least 30 minutes before you go to bed.
27. Place a fresh flower or living plant on your desk or work area.
28. Shop only the perimeter of the grocery store...stay out of the aisles.
29. Replace your toothbrush at least once a month.
30. Record one happy thought in a journal before you go to bed!
