It is always tough for me to get my body and mind back on track after a holiday filled with food, fun and fireworks! So, here are 3 ways to “Be Healthyish” this upcoming weekend. Hopefully you find them as helpful as I do.
- Get Outside
Anytime I can get outside and get some fresh air I always feel revived. Whether it’s a 2 hour hike or a 15 minute walk getting outside always helps me to clear my mind. Strap on some boots and find a peaceful place to unwind and enjoy some time in the outdoors. A little sun and physical activity can go a long way.
- Prepare a Healthyish Meal
Anyone that knows me knows that I love to cook and bake. It always makes me feel happy to prepare a meal for my friends and family. During the summer one of my go-tos is the grill. Preparing a grilled meal is easy, quick, and more “healthy” than “ish”. Simple recipes like marinated veggie kabobs, grilled sweet corn, or homemade salmon burgers are perfect examples of a Healthyish dinner. Don’t forget to grill up some fruit as a tasty cake topper to finish off your meal. Peaches, pineapples, and mangos hold up the best!
- Give Time to Others
While it sounds like a simple thing to do, it is easy to allow yourself to be pulled away by everyday distractors. Make a conscious effort to be present this weekend. Put down your phone, turn off your TV, pull up a chair, and give your full attention to those around you. You will be surprised by the intrinsic benefits you will receive when you give your energy and time to others.
These simple tips are a good start to having a Healthyish weekend and resetting your mind and body.
