2. Daily exercise.
As someone who deals with anxiety & depression, I find that daily bouts of exercise can get me out of a rut. I run, bike, swim and I adore/hate the ergo! haha
If you want to get started with calisthenics (Bodyweight training) I’d suggest you look at the ‘recommended routine’ on reddit. - r/bodyweightfitness
I do yoga occasionally (Check out ‘Yoga with Adrienne’)
I’m still a relative novice when it comes to this introspective practice. I have maintained a 20min a day sit for a few weeks now with the help of Sam Harris’, ‘Waking Up’ app.
You don’t need an app, but If you struggle with motivating yourself these apps can give you a gentle push to get it done.
4. Intermittent Fasting
I’m a greedy gannet and I’m capable of devouring the entire contents of my fridge before bed. To keep my calories in check I follow a 18/6 fasting protocol. Which translates to consuming no calories for 18 hours and consuming my calories in the 6 hour eating window.
I generally have two meals a day. One HUEL shake at 3:30pm (With ample amounts of Ice!) & a regular meal at around 9pm.
I thought fasting was a fad, but I feel like I have more focus and I get a lift in mood.
Anyway, I thought I’d ramble on because I’ve got some time to kill.
I have long been intrigued by IF, however a while ago came across this article https://www.marksdailyapple.com/women-and-intermittent-fasting/ which put me off, as a woman of child bearing age. I haven’t done any more research into the topic since so if anyone has any opinions on the article and studied citied I would love to hear.
