Last year has been significant for us all, with our sense of well-being being affected in one way or another. We are not short of the plethora of wellbeing tools available but finding what suits us best is important, when it comes to restructuring a certain way of thinking, or even reshaping a daily routine. Mindset is key, and the power of positive thinking should not be underestimated when it comes to managing our own health and wellbeing, even small changes can bring about a huge impact on health over time!
This week, we are celebrating World Wellbeing Week and are taking the time to focus on small, incremental changes that you may like to introduce into your life to help support a change in your wellness.
Whether it is a slow walk to get your morning coffee, an evening weight training session at the gym, or some light yoga in the comfort of your own home. You do whatever works for you and feels comfortable.
‘Mood-boosting’ foods are a thing, really! By treating your body to nutritious, quality ingredients, your gut microbiome - the trillions of microorganisms that reside in your gut - will be left feeling happier, thanks to our gut-brain axis which demonstrates close connections between our mood and our digestion. If you are struggling with that 3pm office desk slump that leaves you feeling demotivated and drained, take a look at the foods you are consuming throughout the day. We understand how closely food and mood are linked, which is why our Kurami dishes are nutritionist approved and chef-crafted with quality, science backed ingredients that will leave you feeling vibrant, energised and satisfied from 9-5. We ensure that you hit your 30g of fibre and 30 plants per week, so you have one less thing to worry about.
When we sleep we recharge our brains; Much like charging a mobile after use. Maintaining a regular sleep pattern is understood to optimise brain function, and leave you feeling refreshed. Nutrition, exercise and sleep can all be interlinked, which suggests the importance of building all of these as part of a healthy routine. If you are having difficulty falling asleep, try avoiding caffeine in the late afternoon, enjoy a hot shower or bath before sleep, and put your phone away at least an hour before bed.
Take time to do something for you, at your own pace.. Do something daily that you enjoy, without any pressure. This could be improving activity levels by taking a walk on your lunch break from your work desk, meeting up with a friend, or simply trying a new recipe!
Whilst these tips might seem a ‘no-brainer’ to many, you’d be surprised how easy it is to neglect some without even realising. If you’re looking to make a change, let Kurami take some of the added stress and pressure off your daily routine. With flexible meal paths to suit your lifestyle, start your Kurami journey today and embrace a new you.
