Between our phones, tablets, computers and TV’s… the average person will spend over 10 hours each day in front of their screens! It’s important to make sure we give our eyes and minds a break periodically throughout the day. Meditation, listening to classical music, and taking a walk outside are all great options! My dogs ensure that I never miss a daily walk outside and they always seem to know when I have been sitting too long. What is one of your favourite things to do when you need a refresher?
Pound for Pound
Very cool fact: Pound for pound, your bones are 4x stronger than concrete. Keep your bones healthy by continuing to do weight-bearing exercises.
Strength training is an excellent way to stimulate bone growth, along with running, skipping, jumping or hoping.
When was the last time you jumped??
Do you know how easy it is to roast your veggies? Preparing your veggies this way is super simple to do and is an easy way to set yourself up for success! Put your favourite veggies on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Drizzle extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Season again with salt and pepper. These are great all by themselves, and also to use in your omelets! I love red peppers and broccoli! What are some of your favourite vegetables to roast?
