Not only is a boxing class great for cardiovascular fitness, but the exertion can help to expel not only negative energy, but also pent-up emotions. Punch that bag, get your sweat on and get those endorphins going = stress release!
Our clever pals at Swinburne University in Melbourne have discovered that chewing gum can actually reduce cortisol (our stress hormone) levels in our body by up to 17%. For the nail-biters among us, gum is probably better option. Opt for a sugar-free kind.
We’re all probably guilty of this sometimes, especially when we’re snowed under with assignments (OMG uni group assignments *gasp*) or work deadlines; but your body AND mind need rest. Step away and grab a bite - even if just for a little while, and with something light - so that you can perform better later in the day.
Take some time out, in a quiet place, and stretch out your limbs. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and think about nothing but sunshine and rainbows and summer and ice-cream.
We often spread ourselves so thin because we say “yes” to doing everything and helping everyone, so much so that it physically and mentally exhausts us. Sound familiar? Remember that it’s ok to put yourself first sometimes, Moxette.
Whether it be with co-workers, friends, family or hired professionals. Delegate delegate delegate! And ease the pressure of having too much on your plate (lyrical genius!).
Need we elaborate?!
What takes you to your happy place? Keep a list in your phone or on the fridge and when you’ve got the blues, remind yourself of the fun activities that make you feel good. Pick one off the list and go for it!
Research suggests that kissing releases chemicals that ease our cortisol levels (SEE #8. Get pashing!)
Often we worry about outcomes we can’t control – unfortunately life doesn’t always work out the way we want it to, so don’t be afraid to plan for the worst, just in case. Devise a plan B, C, D, even Z if you need to! That way you’ll feel prepared for whatever the universe throws your way.
Want one less stress in your life? We’ll deliver all the Moxie you need, so that it’s at the ready for when you need it most. We’ll be your back-up plan, Moxette! Meet Moxie Box Club.
