Festive traditions are fun

Does your family have traditions - something you do for special occasions, birthdays, Christmas or other holiday events?

If not, why not?

Even if you don't have kids, that doesn't mean you can't implement some traditions.

Traditions can give us something to look forward to.  They're a ritual that make an occasion special and gives us good vibes - the warm and fuzzies.  Some traditions are common but often they can be unique to you and yours.

Below we've listed some ideas for festive season traditions that we do or have observed our extended family or friend do.

What gives you peace and joy?

You don't have to meditate to get the benefits of mediation.  Movement and mindful practices will similarly give you these benefits, ie activities / practices such as surfing, gardening, watching sunsets or knitting....

What is your thing?  If it gives you a sense of calm and peace it is a meditative practice that is good for you and done regularly will contribute to good health and mental wellbeing.

Below we've shared a couple activities we've found that are calming, stress reducers and spark joy in us:-

You Got-To Move-it

Here it is people let me lay down some truth
You go-to Move-it to keep it loose
Sitten all day don't do you no good
Not the way really moven-it would

Yoga, Qi Gong, Walking, Surfing
Dancing, romancing or hiking or climbing
Moven's what matters
What ever you're liking.

Acupuncture, remedial, cupping and such 
Will put you on track when your hurting so much

But movement's the key
The magic elixir
If you want to be free from the 
Dreaded ach-ee.

So remember to move-it 
At least once a day

2019 Festive Calendar

Feeling the festive season could mean a little more?

Please find below our Festive calendar for December 2019.  It's packed with ideas to make the festive season special..

Positive Attitude for Longer Life

Wouldn't you rather choose to be happy?  A positive attitude not only improves your mood, can also lengthen your life, decreasing major health concerns. Harvard School of Public Health researchers have determined that optimistic individuals were approximately 50% less likely to experience an initial cardiovascular event compared to their pessimistic individuals.
 
We've listed below FIVE TIPS FOR RESETTING A POSITIVE FRAME.

At Audacious Health we frequently observe the relationship between one's feelings and levels of stress and its impact to health.

Sleep – are you setting yourself up for good night’s sleep?

Sleep – are you setting yourself up for good night’s sleep?

I don’t know about everyone else, but I have had some difficulty with sleep in the last week.  Sleep is a topic we’ve often mentioned – why – because it is so important.  A lack of sleep negatively affects your wellbeing, and with a less than ideal mental and physical state, it starts to negatively impact other areas in our lives - like forgetting things, doing things slower than normal, etc.  

So, during winter, we suggest that you maintain good digestive health, maintain exercise and keep up good sleep habits so that you wake well rested and energized for the day.

Managing Stress Strategies

We all would like to have less stress in our lives.  It is good to stop and reflect on how our lives would improve if we had less stress.  Make a list of the reasons for wanting less stress.  This list will be what motivates us to actually implement some changes and take action to reduce stress and to cope better with it.  

For example, when I have less stress, I will have more energy.  With more energy, I will:-
* spend more time playing with the kids
* improve efficiencies at work
