Snow blanketing the ground and the aroma of pumpkin spice wafting throughout the air are significant of the holidays being in full-swing for 2016!
From us at Antibex to you, we’d like to wish you Happy Holidays with these four tips guaranteed to help you navigate this season – with ease and joy.
Clean Your Clutter – Online And Offline!
In her book “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up,” Marie Kondo elaborates on how re-organizing your home extends into personal benefits for mental health, mood, and well-being.
Truthfully, the spark of joy you receive from decluttering your household isn’t just limited to your physical space. How about decluttering your digital space, too?
The benefits of organizing your life in the digital space have a myriad of benefits in real life; by taking the time to organize files, photos, and programs on your digital devices, you not only make your workflow more efficient, but you feel a sense of mental clarity. Give it a try!
Reflect On Today’s Milestones, Plan For Tomorrow’s Goals
Looking for the best way to take some well – deserved “you” time? List out all of the accomplishments you made this year – major and minor – and reflect on how far you came in 2016.
Accordingly, make another list of the major goals you
want to will achieve in 2017! Put it on a whiteboard, put it on Evernote, or your favourite productivity app; just make sure these goals are clear and visible in a space you see daily. Setting goals for 2017 allows you to have a better framework and mental preparation for the year ahead!
Beat Your Winter Blues With Nutrition And Exercise
Did you know: Canadians are significantly deficient in Vitamin D during the winter months? This deficiency promotes depression, bone loss, and other health pitfalls.
Vitamin D deficiency occurs due to a lack of sun during winter; the best move you can make this winter is to supplement with at least 1000 IU of Vitamin D; most Canadians are only getting 600 IU on average.
Want to cover all of your health and wellness bases for the holidays? Pair Vitamin D with exercise – every day, if possible – to naturally detoxify your body, clear your mental space, and encourage proper blood flow to keep warm. The standard is 20-30 minutes of light-to-moderate exercise daily: enough to break a light sweat!
Have Fun With Winter Activities!
It’s easy to stay inside and catch up on the latest Netflix series.
It’s easy to sleep in on weekends.
It’s easy to hibernate and stay indoors for the holidays – but are you really fulfilled?
There are a myriad of winter activities awaiting you outside; there’s sure to be one that suits your unique interests, too. When’s the last time you went tobogganing? When’s the last time you threw the skates on and went to your local ice rink?
Building snowmen isn’t just for kids; be sure to explore listings of your local winter events and activities either online or through local shops.
