Day 3011 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The sharing edition

Sharing is caring

Over the past week I've enjoyed being able to share.  Whether it be a book, a recipe, knowledge, a celebration or time, it's good to share.

There's a lot of power in sharing.  According to Jim Rohn in "The Power of Sharing What you Know" (Success Magazine March 2016) "Sharing makes you bigger than you are. The more you pour out, the more life will be able to pour in."

So today I'm going to share with you, what people have been sharing with me.

Day 3010 - Wellness Wednesday 2018 Quick Tip #3

Set the Do Not Disturb feature on your phone for a good night sleep

It's important to get quality sleep and that's hard to do if your phone is constantly buzzing and  beeping at you.  So either turn it off of an evening or (if your mobile has now replaced your home phone) set your "do not disturb" feature. 

The do not disturb mode mutes all calls and alerts on your device unless you set them as exceptions. That way you can still get emergency or priority calls from loved ones while you're sleeping, without waking to every email, text, like or tag.

Day 3002 - Wellness Strategy

Mind, Body, Soul

By now you know my word for the year is "light".  An odd choice I know, but once you read my post about how I came up with it, it makes perfect sense.

One goal for 2018 is to feel "lighter" in mind, body and soul.  Even as I type this I'm feeling heavy, lacking energy and have limited enthusiasm.  I want to change that.  It's time to get back to bouncing out of bed each day.

Day 2996 - Wellness Wednesday Quick Tip 2018 #1

Friendship and Fitness

A brisk daily walk (even if just 30 minutes) is a great way to age positively.  It helps maintain a healthy weight, helps prevent heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, strengthens bones and muscles, energises us, awakens our thought processes, gets our happy chemicals moving and (if the location is right) it helps us to breathe in fresh air to bolster the immune system.

Add a friend to the mix and the whole "ageing positively" thing gets an extra boost.  According to UCLA's Behavioural Responses in Females study (mentioned in Australian Women's Weekly December 2017) "strong friendships - particularly with other women - not only make us happier, they make us healthier too."

So my Quick Tip #1 for 2018 is get yourself a walking buddy - whether it be a friend, acquaintance, neighbour or work colleague - and factor 30-45 minutes into your lunch break each day for a bit of friendship and fitness all rolled into one.
