In the time it takes you to rehead last weekend’s pizza party, you can make three life-changing decisions – starting, now!
BOOST YOUR FRUIT INTAKE
If you love nothing more than a binge session with your Ben & Jerry’s, please, stop. Try an alternative icy treat by making your own. (It’s pretty quick, too!) Chop and toss some of your favourite fruits and sweet juice or cordial into a popsicle mould, freeze it, and enjoy. No time for that? Whizz some frozen berries with your juice, for a healthy low-kJ take.
DO A COUNTER POSE
Many of us spend our days sitting at a desk, which restricts our blood circulation. To combat this, lie on the floor with your legs propped up, as if you’re about to do a sit-up. Then let your knees drop to both sides, and put your arms above your head. This will open up your groin area and your shoulders, the opposite movements to what you do all day.
LET GO OF A GRUDGE
Depression; high blood pressure; heart attacks (the chances are there!) — you prolly already know the health risks that stress welcomes into your life, so, why so serious? If you still haven’t forgiven your sister for that time she tagged you on Facebook in those unflattering toddler pics, it may be high time you forgive and forget.
