WELLBEING TIPS

 

Simple tips & tricks that can be easily introduced into a busy lifestyle, to help maintain a positive mindset and overall sense of wellbeing



Quick Morning Mindset

Wake up every morning with your favourite morning blend and take 5 minutes to drink it, check in with yourself and get into the right mindset to face the day. Go outside and get some fresh air. Take some deep breaths, take off your shoes and put your bare feet on the ground (For earth energy use a natural floor; grass/concrete).

Try to clear your mind and recharge.


Meditation Tips

A really great way to start the day is to meditate for as long as you can. 15-20 mins is perfect, but it will take practice. Try to find a quiet corner, or if you live in a noisy house, try to rise a little earlier in the morning before everyone else, as this time of day is the easiest to have a clear mind...before looking at your phone, or opening emails or listening to the news. These outside influences can really affect your mood & mindset, which can then have a domino effect on the rest of your day.


Visualisation

May sound funny, but another method to getting into the right mindset is to find that quiet corner again, close your eyes and visualise your perfect day ahead. Imagine it all step by step, from the minute you get up, commute to work, organising children, relatives, dinner through to bedtime. It's actually a really nice process if you include happy emotions throughout and you’ll find the day goes much smoother afterwards.

Try it for yourself?


Gratitude

Sometimes something as simple as writing a ‘Gratitude’ list can really help to de-stress you and give you a positive boost.

Just think of 5 wonderful things that are in your life right now, even if its as simple as thinking about how comfy your bed is each morning and take a moment to be grateful, write them down and it will help keep the the negative thoughts at bay.


Take breaks

Give yourself small 5 minute breaks throughout the day.

Set alarms on your phone and just step away from whatever you are doing, make a quick cuppa, clear away any negative mindset and refresh yourself. It will make a huge difference to your productivity, reduce stress levels and stop you feeling overwhelmed


Exercise

It can be hard to get motivated, but even a quick stretch in the morning can boost serotonin levels. Put on your favourite music and sing or dance! Stupid as it sounds, its a very effective way of raising energy levels, boosting your mood and giving an overall sense of wellbeing. If you can get outside, then even better. Grab some headphones and block out at least 10 mins. Walk, run, cycle...anything to get the blood moving!

Regular exercise can positively impact serotonin levels in your brain, which can also improve your appetite and sleep cycle, which can be often negatively affected by low moods



Relax!

When it comes to bedtime, it can be hard to switch off. There are lots of great ways to help with this, such as meditation, yoga or simply just turning off your phone/laptop and maybe reading a book. Escapism into another world is perfect! Writing a list for the next day or ‘brain dumping’ is a good way to clear the min too..

Pick what works for you, along with a cup of your favourite blend and enjoy!
