In my previous blog, I have mentioned how long-lasting stress changes your brain structure and brain functions.
Let me now share with you three of my “non-negotiables”. I use these “non-negotiables” often when working with busy women ready to prevent burn-out, weight gain or accelerated ageing. These practices revolve around stress management and brain health as the foundations of their motivation and compliance for dietary changes. They revolve around the Vitality Wellness Circle roots = Fuel for the Cells, Fuel for the Self, Fuel for the Soul.
By applying the three fundamental principles below right now, you not only improve your stress resilience, you also keep your brain sharp and healthy.
a. Sleep soundly over 8 hours, so you ensure your brain repair and detox. Yes, you read well: 8 hours of quality sleep a day is what an adult needs for brain health.
b. Walk every day to improve your memory and enhance the production of new neurons. Connection to nature fuel your cells by nourishing your soul.
c. Practice Meditation, Mindfulness or Relaxation, what sounds the most attractive to you. With regular practice, you will impact positively your prefrontal cortex. As a result, you will improve your stress resilience over time by enhancing the function of your “higher self”.
Check if you are currently staying on the good side of the stress spectrum? If not, I encourage you to start with these 3 “non-negotiables”. Don’t hesitate to consult a health practitioner if you need some support. The right time to start is now.
