Put yourself in someone else’s shoes

Empathy is a skill which has always been invaluable to develop. It’s all about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes in order to understand their situation or to ask yourself in what state of mind they are in before meeting with them. It is also in order to consider what they may think about something instead of automatically assuming it.

Avoid bad posture

Contrary to belief, it is not always at the office where we adopt bad posture, but also at home. For example, we twist our neck while sleeping on our stomach, we eat on low tables or on the floor, while watching TV at an angle, while reading or using our computers in bed, sat down or legs outstretched… A stiff neck is only a sign of these bad postures.

Close and massage your eyes

From time to time, close your eyes, place your fingers flat over your eyelids and lightly massage. Continue by massaging the temples, then apply some pressure using the tips of the fingers to the sides and top of the skull. Breathe slowly. Relax…

Fill your plate with colour

Five fruits and vegetables each day, but why not ten? There is no limit to what good it does, especially since vegetables do not often have many calories. So treat yourself and vary the colours!

Twist and stretch

Lift your arms to the sky, then place them behind you. With your back straight, twist to the right and then to the left. You can be standing or sitting. Relax your back and neck. This takes only one minute from time to time and this does so much good.

Eat slowly

Stress makes us greedy! And some of us always eat too quickly. It’s not good, as eating is one of the best moments we have to relax. Eating slowly allows us to eat less as we feel fuller. One technique to try? Hold your fork in the other hand…

Drink lots of water

We do not take the time to drink enough, and this is what tires us out so much. Always having a bottle of water handy is a good habit.
