Did you know March is Holistic Health Month?
March can feel like one of the longest months - especially in Wisconsin. We see the full gamut of weather - snow, wind, ice, rain, sun. You name it, we see it. Sometimes all in one day.
Thanks Mother Nature ;)
So often the weather can be a big bummer this time of year which leads us to often feel like we're in a slump. This is the time of year that we can start making some changes in our holistic health in order to set us all up for success in those warm summer months!
Now you may be asking, what is holistic health?
Holistic health is taking into consideration the whole person. Meaning mind, body, and soul. Have you ever thought about your health as a whole? Or divided aspects of health up into more manageable pieces to make one whole piece?
There are 5 main pieces to holistic health (in no specific order) - intellectual, spiritual, social, physical, and occupational.
You could (and should!) add eating into that mix as well. Because when you eat good food (i.e. veggies & whole grains) you almost always will feel better!
Often changing just one meal (or snack!) can put you on the road to success when it comes down to changing our eating habits. Maybe drink 8-12 oz of water instead of a soda. Or reach for some almonds (think about just a handful!) or carrots and hummus (or sub in whatever veggie, nut, fruit) instead of reaching for a candy bar or sugary snack. Trust me...the sugary sweet snack usually sounds better but at the end of the day the carrots or nuts will often keep you fuller longer!
There are so many more ways to enrich your life in these 6 aspects! And don't feel like you have to tackle ALL of these all at once! That can be quite overwhelming. Simple changes are often the best and easiest way to start and SUCCEED!! When you succeed you want to do more!
Another easy way to succeed is to get yourself moving! Maybe a walk on a sunny day or a yoga/tai chi/pound class if it's not so sunny (or even if it is sunny! ;) )
We want you to succeed - so we're putting on a SALE at MPY! For ONE WEEK at Midwest Power Yoga classes are $5!
That's right - $5 drop-ins (cash only!) for the week of March 11 - March 17!!!
See you on the mat!
