30 Jun Adaptability part 4
As we wrap up our time discussing the importance of strengthening our adaptability muscle, let’s brainstorm about creativity in our activities of daily living. Do you ever feel tired of the mundane, never-ending chores that come with adulting? Let’s talk about two ways to shake things up and continue to move us towards healthy living.
Get outside. The health and wellness benefits of spending time outside have been researched and proven in all of the best ways. Thankfully, our Colorado mornings and evenings can be nice times to enjoy the outdoors even if it’s on your porch or in your yard. Consider folding clothes, chopping veggies, eating meals outside, taking walks after meals, or joining a family, friend, or co-worker and gardening together.
Be spontaneous. One of the things I’m thankful for in this day and age is food safety. We have come a long way to be able to store foods in the refrigerator and keep things as needed. When you haven’t meal planned for the week, take inventory of your refrigerator, pantry, and freezer and throw together a protein, carbohydrate, and veggie. It doesn’t have to be gourmet, it can resemble a snack, but some of the best meals can highlight leftovers or provide a balance and variety to enjoy a new meal.
What are some of the outside of the box ways you’re choosing to live your life?
