GIVE IT YOUR ALL

You’re al­most there. By this time next week, you’ll be slip­ping into your dream outfit and con­grat­u­lat­ing your­self for all your hard work. Don’t give up!

Keep your mind sharp for all those witty con­ver­sa­tions you’ll be hav­ing at the event by in­cor­po­rat­ing Mc­grice’s top foods for brain health into your diet: fish, whole grains, green tea, ap­ples and spinach.

To re­lease more en­dor­phins to get you into the cel­e­bra­tory mood this week, go for a higher in­ten­sity across a va­ri­ety of ex­er­cises. “You could do three body-weight cir­cuits, one long walk and a yoga class,” says Rus­sell. “Try to give ev­ery ses­sion your all.” Since you’re build­ing on your fit­ness from the pre­vi­ous weeks, you might be able to push a lit­tle harder.

“The med­i­ta­tion you started prac­tis­ing in week one can now be ap­plied while you’re go­ing about your day,” says Loll­back. “This is called be­ing mind­ful. So when you’re wash­ing the dishes and think­ing, ‘I re­ally hate wash­ing the dishes’, you’ll be able to think, ‘I’m hav­ing the thought that I hate to wash dishes. I feel an­gry about wash­ing dishes. I sense heat ris­ing up into my head.’

“Mind­ful­ness can be prac­tised even when you’re busy or rush­ing around. If you’re able to prac­tise this lead­ing up to the big event, you’ll feel a lot calmer when it fi­nally ar­rives.” And re­mem­ber: all th­ese great changes are just the be­gin­ning of a jour­ney to a hap­pier, health­ier you. Keep go­ing!
