Better body, better mind
GIVE yourself a boost by treating your body and your mind.
Swap out three carbs a week
Make a pact with yourself that on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, you swap out the standard plain processed noodle or pasta lunch for a healthier wholegrain rice or quinoa.
These whole grains are not only more nutritious but your body will digest them more slowly and you will be more likely to avoid that post- lunch sugar rush and crash.
Keep drinking water
In our tropical heat, it’s important to keep hydrated. Our bodies need water to keep running smoothly. Be careful though with sugared drinks.
Having a soft drink as a treat is great but make sure you drink plain water as well.
Have a giggle
You are sitting in traffic, being pushed to the limit at work and then there’s all the usual stuff like the cat throwing up on the clean laundry and the kids showing off their Picasso skills on the bedroom wall. To destress, make sure you spend time with friends. Not on Facebook or via texting but in real life. Meet up for a coffee and have a good laugh.
