3 daily healthy habits

A few weeks ago, in one of the yoga classes, I talked about daily healthy habits. We narrowed it down to three. Here a short summary for everyone:

I start my day with lemon or lime water. Presently I have fresh limes from my garden. 

 

  1.  Drink plenty of water 2 – 3 litres per day.

  2.  Stretch and move daily. This can be yoga, walking, swimming, running, cycling, fitness class, dancing, a few rounds of Sun Salutations. etc.  Any kind of movement and stretching you like and you will do. It does not have to be long, 15 minutes daily is good. 

  3. Breathing exercises. Focusing on deep abdominal breathing, taking time out throughout the day to make time for some conscious breathing. This can even lead to a short meditation. 

 

Stretch daily - sun salutation
Stretch daily

breathing exercise - anuloma viloma

going into stillness and silence

Start with small, steady steps and keep it up.

I wish you a good, happy, daily practice.
