Lisa’s top tips for Be­ingWell

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

Lisa is South­ern Cross Health So­ci­ety’s Be­ingWell Am­bas­sador sup­port­ing their mis­sion to help Kiwi work­places with em­ployee well­be­ing. She says, “Not only do they aim to be there to give peo­ple ac­cess to treat­ment they need, when they need it; they are work­ing hard to help Ki­wis be well and stay well.” Here she shares her ad­vice for cre­at­ing healthy habits.

»Think well

– Switch on and switch off. Mind­ful­ness and med­i­ta­tion are great tools to achieve this.

»Move well

– In­cor­po­rate phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity into your so­cial life. When catch­ing up with friends choose some­thing ac­tive, like a bush walk, stand up pad­dle board­ing or a trip to the beach rather than a din­ner out.

»Eat well

– Di­ges­tive health: fo­cus on fi­bre, veg­eta­bles, ap­ple cider vine­gar – make sure you get what you need reg­u­larly.

»Sleep well

– Develop a reg­u­lar rou­tine be­fore sleep. It may in­clude a bath, brush­ing your teeth, read­ing, do­ing a cross­word, pray­ing or fo­cus­ing on things you’re grate­ful for. Lisa will be speak­ing at the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Be­ingWell con­fer­ence for em­ploy­ers in Novem­ber.
