Harmony for Health - A Monthly Newsletter
December is Mind-Body Wellness Month
Your mind and body are connected, so it’s important to take good care of both. Stress isn’t just in your head. By paying attention to the way stress makes you feel from head to toe, you can recognize it sooner, and stop it in its tracks.
Lift your spirit by bringing your mind and body into balance. Find perfect harmony. A positive outlook on life can make a difference in your overall health.
For a healthier, happier you, sometimes all it takes is a little imagination. Take a break from your day with 10-minutes of positive thinking, meditation, or a walk. Remember an event that made you happy. Or imagine yourself in a place that make you feel calm and worry-free, like a beach or your favorite hiking trail.
For a more direct effect, do something that makes you smile or laugh. Studies show that the simple act of smiling can reduce the feeling of stress. And don’t discount the magic of music. Sing out your blues and feel your spirit lighten or dance as though no one is watching.
December Thrive Recipe
When you’re cooking more and shopping less, you’ll appreciate this month’s Everyday Chickpea Curry, a quick and easy vegetarian dish that features pantry staples.
You’ll appreciate this recipe as an excellent way to use up pantry items that should be rotated on a regular basis. And you may choose to add more fresh or frozen vegetables, such as broccoli, green beans, or cauliflower. This dish can be a dinner, out-of-the-ordinary family lunch, or you can reheat the leftovers for a quick work-from-home lunch.
This is also naturally dairy and gluten-free and features several spices with antioxidant and potential immune-boosting properties, including ginger, garlic, and turmeric. Whether you’re looking for an easy weeknight dinner or a healthy comfort meal, try this hearty and yummy recipe. It’s especially good on a chilly day.
