Here are the Three Energy Habits to help improve resilience to pressure shared with us by our friend Oliver Gray at Energise You:
1. Eat a high energy breakfast, lunch and dinner by combining healthy carbohydrates such as porridge oats, amaranth pops, brown rice, sweet potato, quinoa and protein such as chicken, turkey, tofu, eggs, fish, pulses and lentils at each meal. Also regularly eat foods high in healthy fats such as seeds, nuts, avocado and olive oil.
2. Movement = energy so kick start each day with at least 20 minutes of morning exercise. This can include cardiovascular exercise such as fast walking or cycling into work or a 20 minute stretching or toning workout. Morning exercise kick starts your energy for the day and with morning exercise you’ll be more consistent with your routine.
3. Re-energise the mind and body with a daily meditation practice; this powerful habit helps take your mind and body into deep relaxation with many physical, emotional and psychological benefits. You can start with a meditation app such as headspace or go on a weekend TM meditation course to learn TM, (transcendental meditation).
