Start the day with meditation

Transcendental Meditation

Start the day with 20 minutes of meditation. A personal favourite for celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Hugh Jackman is Transcendental Meditation. Meditation will retrain your brain to spark thoughts of joy, when anxious thoughts may hit.

Regular Routine

Jennifer Lopez

Quarantine can finally be that opportunity for everyone to stick to a routine. A daily routine can promote overall health, welbeing and productivity. Especially when it comes to our exercise and eating habits. Create a healthy eating plan and specific times in the day when you exercise and snack on healthy alternatives such as fruit and nuts.

Putting your workout outfit on first thing in the morning. Can psychologically be an excellent way to get you set up for the rest of the day.

During this difficult period we are all living. Palestra New Olimpia Gym are donating moments of fitness and wellbeing to help you get through it. Please join them direct by commenting on their page with #gofitness and show your gratitude by ‘liking it’.
