IGNITE YOUR DAY

by MJ
FUEL  ~  Dish of the Day:
Sometimes, the only thing standing between you and a daily salad is all that chopping! Don’t let that be the case this week. Start your week off with your fridge full of Chopped Salad and you’re all set for the next 3-4 days!  [Click here for additional Recipes]

 

AIR  ~  Movement of the Day:
The Sott’s Press is a challenging movement. If you can master this, your spine and your posture will REJOICE! This will help undo all that time you spend sitting at the computer. [Click here for additional Workouts]

 


SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:

Essential Element:  And, lo and behold, the afternoon nap turns out to be one of the most effective and productive methods for increasing energy and improving cognitive skills and focus, while mitigating the adverse effects of chronic stress by lowering circulating stress hormones like cortisol.  [click here to read Spark Insight: Restorative Sleep]

Journal:  Napping is difficult for so many people – yet it’s one of the greatest things we can do for our mental and physical health – all of us.  This week – challenge yourself by giving yourself a mandatory mid-day rest. Make it a goal to get 4 naps in – 10-20 minutes each. They can be whenever you like – late morning – mid afternoon – even two on the same day. Give it a fair shot – and at the end of a day you’ve napped, write in your journal  how those hours post-nap went.    [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
