Miranda’s Tips for a More Empowered Year

I hope you’ve been able to take some time over the holiday period to give yourself the rest and rejuvenation your mind and body may have needed.

I find the beginning of the year is a perfect time to set new intentions, goals, and affirmations for the year ahead.

As I look to 2018 with anticipation and gratitude, I also like to take the time during the month of January to focus on what I want to accomplish both personally and professionally over the coming months and year.

To avoid feeling overwhelmed I find it helpful to set short, mid and long-term goals. You may find this helps you minimize stress and increases your productivity at the same time.

A few tips below will hopefully help you stay balanced while achieving all your dreams and ambitions for the year ahead.

 

Create Space in your Mind

  • Pencil 15 mins of meditation into your diary, daily (or if that’s not your thing just some quiet time focussing on a still mind).
  • Swap your screen for green and get out into nature.
  • Switch off all devices and the wifi an hour before bedtime.
  • Try and give yourself a day off from the outside world.
  • Listen to an audiobook or podcast in your lunch break or while in the car.
  • Focus on your breath and deep belly breathing to help let go of stress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feed your Body Love

  • Elevate your heart rate for at least 20 minutes a day.
  • Make exercise fun, so you want to do it!
  • Keep endorphins flowing, exercise again within a 48-hr window.
  • Laugh (and I mean big belly laughs) with friends and family.
  • Take a swim (preferably in the ocean, I find saltwater is cleansing for the soul). But if you’re not near an ocean, you can opt for a warm bath with sea salt!
  • Pick some flowers from the garden and light a candle.
  • Sing and dance as if no one is watching.

 

 

 

 

 

Get your Glow from Within

  • Start your day with warm water (optional with a squeeze of lemon).
  • Reward your body with nutritious and equally delicious foods.
  • Know that what you put in, you get out.
  • Take supplements (if needed) to enhance health and wellbeing.
  • Ensure you get at least 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep (it’s when our bodies repair).
  • Ditch unnecessary toxins, go organic and avoid acidic foods.
  • Try to eat fresh, local produce and avoid processed foods as much as possible.
  • Drink lots of clean purified and ideally alkaline water.
  • Treat yourself (occasionally!).

 

 

 

 

Here are some of my favorite apps that help me stay on track to optimum wellness, I hope they do the same for you!

  • Lumosity – Brain Training
  • Headspace – Mindfulness
  • Meditation Time – Meditation
  • Sleep Better – Sleep Tracker

May your year be filled with love, laughter, health & happiness.
