At Form we believe a holistic approach to health and wellbeing is vital. However, we know this isn’t always easy. Information we are provided with online is ever-changing, leaving us confused as to whether what we are eating really is good for us or whether we have been heavily influenced by those with vested interests in new products/fads. Ensuring that we have the most up-to-date and factual resources and information can be hard, so we have developed a new approach helping you to simplify every element of your health and well-being.
Form 360 takes you back to basics, taking 4 key elements: Mind, Body, Soul and Nutrition.
Each week we will highlight 4 key thoughts/actions to help you to nurture each of these aspects of your health and wellbeing, ensuring you can make small steps of progress every week. We believe that every week should start on a high, creating new resolutions for ourselves and forever building and strengthening good habits that allow us to form a healthy and happy lifestyle.
Remember: it takes 21 to make a habit and 21 days to break habit.
This week we focus on 4 simple ideas to get you started:
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health - be mindful of all your senses to ensure that you are nourishing your brain just as you nourish your body. Mornings can be particularly hard, rushing to get ready and out the door in time for work we often neglect our minds. Simply start the day with the uplifting smell of Geranium essential oil to energise and awaken the mind before you rush into your day.
We hear over and over again that sitting at work all day is bad for us, and yet so many of us still don’t really have a choice. Trying to be even a little more active throughout the day can make a huge difference to our physical health. This week, try to take the stairs where possible, take the long route when walking to work. These changes may seem tiny as we do them, but they can very quickly add up to a significant increase in our physical health.
Spice things up in the kitchen with a bit of chili. Research shows that chili not only increases your metabolism, but is also high in calcium and vitamins A and C. Chili can also protect the stomach lining. - Plus it’s delicious!
Always try to find time to spend on your favourite activities that allow you to nourish your mind. At Form we do this by taking walks in the countryside, we find that even just escaping the office for a short walk can refresh your body and mind and recharge you for the day ahead. Whilst you are walking, take in the sights, sounds and smells around you - this distraction from your day-to-day life can help to put things that are troubling you into perspective and help your mind to reset, allowing you to focus. Why not take your mat with you and practice somewhere beautiful?
