Start every morning with a glass of warm water with juice of half a lemon squeezed in it
This gets your digestion working after a night. Lemon is also packed with vitamin C. To protect your teeth enamel, use a straw and prefer the reusable ones.
Take a bottle of water with you wherever you go
It’s much easier to stay hydrated if you always have water with you. To save the environment and prevent chemicals getting into your body, use a reusable glass bottle instead of plastic one.
Half a kilo a day
Every Finn probably knows the “Puoli kiloa päivässä” slogan. Yes, you really should aim to at least half a kilo of veggies/fruits a day.
Eat or exercise as the first thing in the morning
I try to keep this as my rule of thumb. Either one is the best way to get your metabolism going.
Remind yourself about a good posture
No matter if your sitting at your desk or waiting for a bus standing, pay attention to your posture. Sit bones down, hips forward, shoulders back and down, head up.
Ladies, do your pelvic floor exercises
Squeeze in. And relax. 10 times in a row. Anytime, anywhere.
End every day by going through in your mind or writing down 3 things you’re grateful for that day
It doesn’t take that long and sure will make you feel better.
Stop and breathe
I mean breathe with all your lungs and see your tummy going up and down. Take at least 5 deep breaths daily. If you’re super stressed out or just working in a hectic environment, closing your eyes and breathing deep can make a big difference. Also, try to focus on just your breath and nothing else.
Take the stairs
It’s surprising how people tend to take the elevator to go up/down even one floor. Why? Walk!! It will make your blood flow a bit faster for a while and bring more oxygen to your brain.
Turn your phone to “Don’t disturb” or Flight mode for the night
This will help you sleep better and not to wake up to the noise or light. Flight mode/turning off your phone also reduces exposure to cell phone radiation (or radiofrequency energy) that can affect your brain.
