Variety in nutrition is as important to being healthy as changing our routines, trying new things, and doing more than moving one part of our body as our workout. I have certain foods that I like a lot, so I find it very easy to slip into a routine of very similar things all the time. However, I also know that if I give myself a range of different ingredients throughout the week, I’ll also be giving my body lots of different nutrients. Still, for me, it’s more than that.
My strength training routine has become a matter of focus for me. I feel that when it comes to cardio, that’s the type of workout I’m most likely to do. I keep it up regularly. Same thing can be said for my work on balance and flexibility, as I practice yoga and tai chi on a steady basis. When it comes to maintaining muscles, the activities just don’t seem to naturally fit into my life, so I’ve decided to make them something I choose to do. Yes, they’re a chore, but they’re a necessary one.
Yoga nidra for sleep has started making its way into my life to the point that I have been practicing it regularly since December. I’m not saying that I haven’t gone a night without it, but it’s easily been a part of my winding down routine more often than not. Now that I’ve tested it on myself, I’m ready to recommend it to you too.
