Release, Refresh, Reset

(NAPSI)—You don’t have to let a busy schedule break your
healthy stride or keep you from crushing your goals. You can regroup on your
approach instead. By incorporating these three ways to release, refresh and
reset, you can still make health a priority.
1. Release Your Mind by Escaping
into Nature. Getting out into nature gives you the space and peace to
release the things that bog you down. Escape the rush. Try camping in the
wilderness or taking a scenic hike. Studies show that surrounding yourself
with nature can have positive effects on mental health. Ditch the office and
try working outdoors at a picnic table or on a blanket in the grass. Wherever
you go, whatever you do, sit back and breathe in the fresh air.
2. Refresh Your Exercise Routine
with New Moves. Inspiration derives from new experiences, which is why exercise physiologist and Bowflex
fitness advisor Tom Holland recommends mixing up your daily workout routine. “Give
yourself the opportunity to explore and challenge
yourself in new ways,” suggests Holland. Try a new workout program, or
an exercise machine that moves you in new ways, such as the breakthrough Bowflex LateralX (www.bowflex.com/lateralx) cardio
machine. It strengthens and activates muscles with side-to-side,
push-and-pull and stand-and-squat motions that target the arms, back, hips
and core, as well as common trouble spots including glutes,
hamstrings and quads. By moving in all directions, you mimic everyday
activities such as yard work, housecleaning or chasing after your kids. It’s
a new and exciting workout that can keep you motivated.
3. Reset Your Soul with Time for
Yourself. In addition to carving out time for fitness, you need to make
time for yourself. Creating positive energy in a chaotic world can be
challenging but it’s important for overall health and well-being. You
don’t have to be a yogi to meditate. Experts say to start small—try
focusing for 10 minutes a day in a quiet place and don’t get frustrated
if your mind wanders. It takes practice but the benefits are worth the
investment. You may find you’re more calm and productive and you sleep
better. Whatever helps you reset, create time in your schedule and act on it.
You owe it to yourself.
