ELLE (Australia) - - Welleness -

ADAPTOGENS

Th­ese plant sup­ple­ments, in­clud­ing ash­wa­gandha, maca and gin­seng, help bal­ance hor­mone lev­els, in­crease en­ergy and boost gen­eral well­be­ing.

*** BROC­COLI AND MUS­TARD POW­DER

Boost broc­coli’s pow­ers with mus­tard pow­der. Kalinik says to add the pow­der to vinai­grette and driz­zle it over broc­coli.

*** THE RAB­BIT POSE

Like child’s pose, but with arms stretched back to hold your feet and your chin tucked into your chest. It stim­u­lates the thy­roid gland to cre­ate a sense of bal­ance.

*** OHHHHHHM

Skip the chant­ing in your yoga class? You could be miss­ing out. Chant­ing stim­u­lates the merid­ian points on the roof of your mouth and helps trig­ger serotonin and dopamine.
