Thanks for making Wellness Week 2019 a success by attending and taking part in our activities! We went over an array of subjects regarding fitness and well-being, from the breakfast roadshow on Thursday, Chair Yoga on Tuesday to Lunch and Learn on Wednesday. Here are the key points we want you to take away from this initiative:
1) Get moving
You don’t necessarily have to exercise vigorously every day – just setting apart a few minutes throughout the day to move; whether it’s stretching at your desk, taking the stairs instead of the elevator or taking a stroll after dinner, these seemingly small movements matter.
2) Don’t forget to hydrate
If you’re only drinking water when you’re feeling thirsty – we have some bad news. By the time your brain processes thirst, the body has already become dehydrated. Drinks with caffeine also leech water out of your body. So develop a habit of drinking a big glass of water every few hours, especially with the hot months coming up, you do not want to be a victim of dehydration!
3) Watch what you eat
You don’t have to starve yourself to be fit. The trick lies in portion control and being mindful of what you’re consuming. Remember: your plate should mainly consist of vegetables (particularly Cruciferous vegetables), quarter portion of protein and a small portion of carbs.
4) Happy mind, happy life
Remember to think happy thoughts! Freeing your mind of negativity is an essential step to achieving overall well-being. Dedicate a few minutes during the day for meditation or simple breathing exercises. You’ll notice the positive difference it makes on your mood, productivity and stress levels.
#YouChoose your fitness journey and the smallest of steps make a difference. See you next year!
