During these times where we are encouraged to stay home as much as possible, it can be challenging to find ways in which to also stay active. But more than ever, moving your bodies is an important part of staying healthy both physically and mentally.
Nelson Mandela once said, “Exercise is the enemy of tension and tension is the enemy of serenity”.
Apparently during his ordeal, he was disciplined to exercise for one hour every morning to remove tension and to focus on what he needed to do, instead of being caught up in the stress of his situation. Wise advice. So, if you are working from home and not having to commute, perhaps you can use the commute time to get some exercise, whether it’s a walk around the block or an exercise class on YouTube.

What Are You Hoping For?
by Carolyn Stevens
This question isn’t as lightweight as it sounds.
Because our brain is a question-asking and question-answering mechanism, as soon as you ask, “What are you hoping for?”, your brain begins to paint a picture of your ideal outcome.
But wait, there’s more…
Once your brain begins to paint a picture of what you’re hoping for, it’s begun focusing on what you want—rather than what you don’t want.
And that, my friends, is how we think, feel and live constructively, purposefully and happily.
By focusing on what we want—not what we don’t want.
