April 2015: Healthy Tips

Try these healthy tips that can easily be fit in to any schedule, and see how you feel after a few weeks:

1 minute:

Add a little cinnamon to your coffee grounds before you brew. Studies have shown that this antioxidant-rich spice may reduce blood pressure and lower stress. Your coffee will be a little extra delicious, too!

5 minutes:

If you're like a lot of people, you spend quite a bit of time typing on the keyboard. Give your hands some love and give yourself a hand massage. Not only will it ease some tension from typing, but it will also give some instant relaxation. Apply some lotion and start kneading the base of the thumb to relieve stress in the shoulders, neck, and scalp.

15 minutes

Hop to it! How long has it been since you've jumped rope? In just 15 minutes, you can get your heart racing with a jump-rope routine, and you don't even have to leave your home. Try switching through some basic jumping and alternate-foot jump.

30 minutes:

30 minutes is all you need to decompress. During your lunch break or another break during your routines, take some time to get outside. Breathing in the fresh, Spring air can do wonders for your perspective and mood.
