Work it Out

At some point, most of us have procrastinated for working out and there are times when we just need a nudge to get our body moving. I am going to share a very simple yet important reason to give you that motivational nudge.

Blood circulation is of course an important system of our body. It helps to distribute nutrients across our body. It is important to get active and turn up our heart rate with some exercises that work for us. Working out also helps to maintain our body muscles and after all, heart is a muscle as well. For a good heart health, we need to maintain a healthy workout routine. There are of course many other factors that contribute to our heart health and many other benefits of exercising but I just wanted to share a quick motivation to give you that push. Note: It is also important to maintain your body’s water balance as you workout. Drink enough water to prevent dehydration and maintain a water balance to avoid water intoxication. Have a healthy workout!

Please note that I am just sharing a motivational message and you may want to consider a consultation with your health care/fitness professional for the right workout for your body.

Mindful Word Exercise

How to engage your mind and overcome negativity or anxiety? Here is one simple way for doing this – Mindful Word Exercise. (Note: not tested on anyone, just my idea.)

  1. Think of a positive word and write it down. Let’s call it our main word. For Example – MODEST.
  2. Let’s look at each letter of our main word – M, O, D, E, S and T.
  3. Now, let’s write down a positive word starting with each of these letters. For Example – Mature Mind, Original, Decent, Elegant, Simple, and Temperate.
  4. Finally, let’s just take some time to be mindful of our thoughts about each of these positive words.

Here are my thoughts. Being modest has no age limit. A mature mind and an original self bring out decency and temperateness, which are simple yet elegant.
