Recently I was at a lecture and the presenter asked the room to rate themselves, in terms of how they feel, on a scale of 1-10.
He then made an interesting observation: whatever number you are, chances are you surround yourself with those of a similar number. Twos attract 2s and 10s attract 10s.
So, what number are you? If you are a low number, take a look at those around you and ask what numbers are they?
If they are low numbers too, then I am going to set you a task. For the next four weeks aim to surround yourself with one person who is a higher number than you and observe the knock-on effect it has on your mood.
Hummus is packed with protein while celery is a fantastic digestive aid.
You will need:
8 long celery sticks, ends trimmed
130g hummous or 130g tzatzki
2 tbsps of chopped walnuts
Wash the celery and carrots.
Grate the carrot into a bowl and use this as the base in the celery stick
Fill the remainder of the celery sticks with the hummus or tzatzki and sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.
Bring a Swiss ball to work and use it instead of your chair. Chairs are great but they do all the work for your body. By using a Swiss ball you have to use your core to do all the work to stay upright. This is a simple yet effective way to get more exercise into your day.
