Kate Top Three Daily Habits for Overall Wellbeing
Find two to three moments in the day (including the very start of it, in the morning) to be completely still and just observe the breath. Stillness is the most under-utilised tool we have for productivity and fulfilment.
Practice Mindful Eating
When you’re eating, eat slowly and savour each mouthful. Not only will you be less likely to over eat but your digestive system will thank you. Be mindful of the types of foods that over stimulate and cause ‘crashes’, (typically caffeine and sugar). Instead, opt for natural sources of energy and vitality such as super foods containung concentrated vitamins and nutrients.
Make Time to Digest Your Day
At the end of your day, take five minutes to sit and reflect. Acknowledge the conversations, actions and hot spots in your day. Give gratitude for the things that were great and — without necessarily wading in them — recognise the areas you could have acted with more integrity or kindness. Processing your day is key to sleeping well and clearing your head.
