We are living through very uncertain times right now. Everyone is doing their best to create some level of “normal” amongst the ever changing times we find ourselves submersed in.
Personal Health is made up of 3 main components -
- Physical Health
- Mental Health
- Emotional Health
In my opinion, positive emotional health is the direct result of your mental & physical health.
When we are feeling good both physically & mentally, you can’t help but be happier and that happiness spreads to everyone in your life. The great news is, we can be in control of our physical & mental health.
Physical Health - (focus on fitness)
Obviously this can be more challenging following the current social distancing rules, being unable to go to the gym or group classes. Check out any of these 5 amazing fitness gurus for meal plans & tips on staying in shape at home & with limited equipment. It doesn’t have to be an hour, just make sure to move and eat healthy.

Mental Health - (meditation)
We all hear about it & all the benefits just a few minutes a day can bring, but how many of us actually take the time to meditate?
It’s easy to make excuses... “I don’t have enough time” & “I’m not into the hokey zen stuff & burning incense”.
To all of you…. HEADSPACE is the answer. It is an amazing app that offers a free trial & it will change the way you view meditation.
It changed my life when I started 4 years ago. Currently I am on a streak of 90 consecutive days and counting.
It gives you so many options & helps you choose what you want to focus your meditation on:
- Finding Focus
- Meditation for Kids
Hope you enjoyed the insight on how to take control of your own well being during these trying times. We are all going to come out stronger for getting through this.
If you have any questions about the fitness companies we recommended or about headspace, send us a text/email/DM or pick up the phone. We would love to hear from you.
