It was great catching up with all my crew this week, and they all are adapting really well to the current situation we find ourselves in.
Everything they have learnt since they’ve been in the Crew is now coming into its own, and many of them are now using what they have learnt to adapt their fitness and nutrition habits and behaviours during lockdown.
You mental wellbeing starts here... A common theme that came out of the conversations was about their self-care. And for as much as they are on point with their food and fitness, they're not really spending the time to reflect and relax. It's an anxious time for all of us, so our mental health and wellbeing is more important then ever.
I feel we all have now have a real opportunity to start to introduce ways of looking after our mental wellbeing during lockdown, and get into a regular routine. This can be anything from regular stretching, relaxation activities, yoga or just breathing techniques. Basically, anything that gets you to STOP, relax and realign.
My regular routine now consists of yoga (something I have always wanted to try but never 'had the time'!), a daily evening walk (my hour of exercise a day outside) and colouring in (yes! I know! I find it sooo relaxing!). I have also found my sleep quality has improved immensely!
Make YOU a priority
There’s absolutely no excuse not to prioritise yourself now, and why wouldn’t you want to make your mental wellbei
ng a priority?? If you're not the best version of you then you're not much use to anyone else are you?
Mental wellbeing is my main focus with my crew over the next few weeks, and it should be yours to. What are you doing to help your mental health?
