Valuable Health Habits To Implement Now
We need 8 - 12 hugs a day! Studies show a 20 second hug reduces stress, and has positive impacts on blood pressure and heart rate.
Studies show daily gratitude practices like a gratitude journal, thank you notes, and just thinking about what you're grateful for improve happiness, relationships, and sense of well-being.
3. SLOWING DOWN
We are hyper focused on productivity, and yet "doing" is only a fraction of what life is about. When you slow down, you are better able to be and stay present to the moment, to feel your feelings, and to make better decisions. Find your natural pacing and honor it. You might also end up being MORE productive and LESS stressed!
4. USING CURIOSITY
Curiosity impacts your health positively because in relationships, curiosity leads to connection and emotional resonance, while the absence of curiosity does not. Try asking more questions, especially when you feel critical, judgemental, and when you find yourself making assumptions about someone. You can also request of someone to be more curious about you if you sense they are in judgment.
If that doesn't interest you, maybe this will, "Curiosity is the key to creativity." ~ Akio Morita, Cofounder of Sony Electonics
