2020 has been an eye-opening year. A year of many life lessons. The pandemic has made us realize that health truly is wealth. And aside from fitness, we’ve begun to understand the value of holistic wellness – where your mind, body, and spirit are aligned in optimal harmony.
Here are 3 lessons that will help you find that harmony as we enter the New Year.
Learn To Be Patient With Fitness
This year has taught us the value of being patient – with others and ourselves. In order to experience holistic wellness on a deeper level, you have to be patient with your workouts. Apart from indulging in a mix of cardio and weight training; consistency and regularity are important.
It’s important to maintain consistency and work out even on the days you feel like you see no results. Strike a balance between being patient and being hard on yourself – go hard with the workouts, but be patient with the results.
Being organized and setting shorter-term goals will help you get the desired results. Achieving these goals will have a positive impact on your physical as well as mental health, help you develop a positive mindset, and reduce stress.
Optimum Immunity At All Times
COVID-19 has made us realize that we can’t take anything for granted – be it access to restaurants and gyms or spending time with our loved ones. Or our immunity against infections and diseases. We’ve learned to appreciate our bodies better. Treating our bodies as temples is more important now than ever before. We’ve finally realized that building immunity is an on-going process and needs regular work and monitoring.
If you want to be better equipped for what the future might hold, make sure that immunity-boosting foods such as citrus fruits, garlic, broccoli, bell peppers, ginger, spinach become a regular part of your diet. Eating more fermented foods like yogurt along with staying hydrated and controlling the levels of stress in your life – also helps create more lasting immunity.
Wellness Beyond Fitness
We are making better fitness and lifestyle choices now. But it’s important to remember that wellness is more than just a good diet and exercise. The pandemic has taught us to prioritize our mental and overall well-being and to take responsibility for it. Achieving a balance between work and play, making time for friends and family, spending some time close to nature, meditating, and to find loving self-acceptance are also important aspects of holistic wellness.
This year has made us explore the impact of rounded, overall wellness in depth. ‘Live Well’ should be your mantra for the new year. Let’s walk into 2021 with positivity in our hearts, minds, and souls!
