This Global Pandemic has had widespread and devastating effects on many of us. During this time, it is extra important to look after our health and well-being, be that mental and physical. Stay tuned to learn about how my current morning routine helps to set me up for mental and physical success, and see how dried fruits and nuts are an essential part of this routine!
Start with Coffee & Gratitude Journaling
I am grateful for my health, that my family is safe, for shelter and access to good food. I’m grateful to have a supportive partner and to be in a place of financial stability. Sure, grieving the loss some work and wedding activities is to be expected, but it doesn’t have to overshadow the good in life.
Next, Participate in Some Kind of Movement
I usually mix my physical activity up between running and yoga. I am a competitive runner, but I won’t run every day as this would risk injury and neglect other types of exercise that are just as important. I depend on yoga to give me a good deep stretch along with some strength building.
During my runs, I am usually listening to a podcast. My podcast picks range from travel-related to business-related to reality TV-related. It all depends on my mood!
For those of you who can’t go outside to exercise at the moment, great exercise alternatives include YouTube Videos, and fitness classes displayed on other online platforms such as Instagram (everyone is doing Instagram Lives now!)
Last (but not least!) Refuel With an Energizing and Filling Breakfast With Nuts and Dried Fruits
Therefore, I always add nuts and dried fruit to my oats for power! This will better satiate me and help me face the challenges that the day throws at me. We’ve learned that this year is full of challenges so far! The nuts and seeds also add a number of nutrients that are important for immunity, including vitamin C, zinc and protein!
