Challenge Time

I was watching a video today talking about changes to education that may result from the pandemic. It was really interesting, and I learned a lot, but one thing that stuck out for me wasn’t related to education at all. I had not realized that the word “crisis” in Chinese is made up of two words: “danger” and “opportunity”. This got me thinking about how we can use this time as an opportunity to improve our health.

Since many of you may have a little extra time on your hands, perhaps now is the moment to participate in a health challenge. Maybe you’d like to drink more water, cut down on sugar, run a 5K…. I’m presently participating in The Alcohol Experiment: being alcohol free for thirty days. Alcohol is not great for our immune system, even in small amounts. Its impact on our digestion can rob us of valuable nutrients. It prevents us from getting quality sleep. It also lowers our number of infection-fighting white blood cells. So taking a break is a great way to take care of ourselves.

Nutrition

Yesterday, I mentioned movement as one of the pillars of health. Another is nutrition. Nutrition is key, and it doesn’t have to be complicated. Today I threw together a yummy Greek salad with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh oregano and pepper as a dressing. Delicious!

What healthy meal or snack can you include today?

Now, more than ever, it is important to take good care of ourselves: mentally, energetically, spiritually, and physically.

My personal approach focuses on The Six Pillars of Health according to Deepak Chopra. One of these pillars involves movement, which is good not only for our physical health, but also our emotional health: helping us deal with stress.

Our local gyms have closed, but I have been able to continue to stay active at home. Today, for example, I dusted off my PlayStation 3 and pulled out my EA Sports Active 2. Personal training in the comfort of my own home.

What movement can you incorporate today?
