Easy wellness steps

Being at the beginning of any journey can feel scary. Try these suggestions as an easy onramp into your wellness routine.

Create consistency with small steps. Feeling successful with the “little stuff” helps to create desire and willingness to take bigger steps towards your goal.

Here are two tips:

1. Drink more water
2. Take the stairs more often

Remember Push, Pull, Squat, Twist. All movement falls into one or all four of these categories. We practice them whether we drive a truck, dance or practice t’ai chi. I invite you to think about how you can create a cohesive and harmonious understanding of movement as it applies to exercise, weight loss and strength training.

Here are some exercise and movement options:

1. Push ups
2. Upright Rows
3. Squats
4. Abdominal twists in different positions

Nourish your body.
I know you know a lot of what I’m about to say, but you want to make sure that you’re getting enough micro and macro nutrients into your body. It is just as important to consume variety from the food rainbow as well as eat it consistently.
