"The best way to learn a new skill is to teach it to others."
Looking to get moving in the New Year? Try out the USMC Daily 7 exercises. Do them DAILY, start with 5 repetitions each, and don't overdue it. Add a short walk, bike or run and drink plenty of fluids (hydrate!). Build on your progress weekly and share with others (and me, see contact link to the right).
FOLLOW THE JELLY
To swim, jellyfish contract their bodies, drawing in water and then relax, forcing the water out again. If they didn’t relax between strokes, there would be no forward movement. In other words, taking breaks is vital to their process – and the same goes for humans. When we don’t take breaks, we are prone to anxiety and burnout, not to mention a decrease in productivity and focus. So try penciling in more downtime, such as a short walk every hour. Or pause for your favorite snack or lunch with a friend. When you cannot escape your desk, at least give your eyes a chance to relax by following the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look at least 20 feet away from your computer screen for about 20 seconds. In the long term, creating moments of rest for your body and mind is just as important as checking off to-dos. Health.com
