New Normal? Or a BETTER Normal!

Physical & Mental Wellness Tips

New normal? How about a better normal?  A better normal might begin with a focus on better health.  Here are some tips to nourish your mental and physical health.

Develop a BRIO mindset:

  1. Stay socially active, either virtually or from 6-feet away. Call a friend.
  2. Learn something new or pick up a new habit (get a Ukele, learn to hula hoop, or salsa).
  3. Choose gratitude – Write down what you are hopeful for, OR send someone a thank you note for their friendship.
  4. Increase your spiritual health.
  5. Go back to work!

Develop a BRIO body:

  1. Establish a new healthy routine –  It’s the little things that you do, that make the biggest difference.
  2. Build out your weekly exercise schedule- Build exercise into your daily schedule,150 minutes of moderate exercise per week, including 2 days of weight training and 3 days of cardio, flexibility, or balance training.
  3. Set a new physical goal – Daily push-ups, keeping a run/walk schedule, or increasing how long you can plank. Challenge yourself with a fitness goal.

A BRIOlife is a life that exudes the vim, vigor, and vitality needed to live well. Want to get your BRIO back?  Not sure where to start?

7 Tips to Restructure Your New “Normal”

There is nothing normal about the circumstances we find ourselves in.  Our daily routines have been completely disrupted. But…what if that is a good thing?   In order to grow, we must adapt to our new “normal” and create a daily routine that keeps us healthy and feeling well. Here are a few tips that can help restructure your new “normal”.

7 Tips to Restructure Your Daily Routine

  1. Plan time for yourself. Clear your head by meditating, praying, or using breathing techniques to divert attention away from any stress.
  2. Exercise regularly. Increase your movement. Find something physical you like to do and stick with it.
  3. Work hard. Whether that means working from home, homeschooling kids, or finishing those to-dos that have been on your list forever, make sure to give it your all!
  4. Enjoy social/ recreation time.  FaceTime with a friend. Read a book. Pull out those paints.
  5. Start a journal of gratitude.  
  6. Sketch out your plan for tomorrow. Make your to-do list with reasonable expectations. This will give you a sense of control, and reduce useless worry.
  7. Get better sleep! Turn off all electronics and try to get 7-9 hours per night.
