For Lent this year I’ve decided to commit to a good habit for 40 days instead of restricting something bad. I’m all about positivity, and I think focusing on doing good for myself will give me a better outlook than disallowing something “bad”. I’m not a huge fan of “good” and “bad” in general, I think that balance is key. That being said, I don’t think anyone would say that being a little more active has a downside…so, I’m committing to spending at least 30 minutes a day doing something active for the duration of lent. Given my current injury, that will probably mean using my weighted hula hoop or running with the dog for the time being, but once my finger heals that will also mean hitting the gym and taking new classes. I plan on switching it up as much as possible to keep my interest and ensure that my active time not only benefits my body, but my brain as well.
That being said, I’m trying some new meals this week to benefit my brain and body combined. Some creative things that I wouldn’t usually make, or using some new skills/ingredients. I think that keeping things interesting in terms of food is just as important as keeping them healthy! I did also include one easy and familiar meal, because it’s comforting and because I’ve got an interview for my dream job this week (gotta save some time to prep)!
