Don’t be afraid of failing. Be terrified of never trying.
Today’s Healthy Hack
Deep breathing, where you fill your belly and expand your diaphragm downwards, is one of the most powerful exercises you can do to activate your lymph system, which helps to detoxify your body. Think of your lymph system, as your own personal garbage removal system.
Today’s Healthy Bite
Often it’s just a matter of swapping some of our regular food for a more nutritionally dense alternative. When planning meals for your day, think about these options.
- Swap white bread for Rye bread, which is packed with energising B-vitamins and fibre.
- Swap White rice for quinoa which contains a full set of essential vitamins and minerals, as well as fibre and protein.
- Swap potato for sweet potato which provides slow-release energy and regulates fluctuating blood sugar levels.
Today’s 2-minute workout
Balance on one foot with your back to a couch or chair. Lower yourself down as slowly as possible until sitting. Get back up (using both feet!) and swap legs.
