Just One Thing!

Sometimes it is nice to focus on one thing and see how it effects your health and wellbeing, so starting today every week I am going to post a suggestion for you to try for the next 7 days (or longer if you enjoy it).

Week 1

This week it is to practice your balance. This could be to stand on one leg with your eyes open or even shut. Or it could be that you stand with your feet close together. Or play on a wobble board or on in the play area at the park.

Find something that is a challenge for you and do it daily. I'm not setting times as this is a very individual challenge.

By practicing this you will be helping your posture, working your core and reducing falls.

Let me know how you get on.

PS: please ensure it is safe for you, have something sturdy to hold onto if necessary.

These suggestions have been taken from Michael Moselys Just One Thing podcast

Week 2

This weeks suggestion is to practice conscious breathing every day. To focus on your breath and be still for a short while.

You could count up to 4 as you breathe in, and 6 as you breathe out. Or try square breathing which is in for 4, hold for 4, out for 4 and hold for 4. It could even be simply to focus on filling and emptying your lungs, no counting involved.

Conscious breathing has many benefits including slowing down your heart rate, reducing anxiety and increasing the oxygen intake through your lungs.

Week 3

This week find time for a nap or some down time.

Many will know I am a big napper. Usually up to 20 mins however after listening to this podcast, maybe I could nap for longer up to 60 - 90 mins and gain even greater benefits? Although personally I'd struggle to find the time in the day.

By having a nap you can improve your learning reduce your chance of a heart attack, heart failure and stroke. It also allows the mind to recharge and store memories.

Extra Weekly suggestions will be added here as they are added to the Facebook page. Keep popping back to see.
