2 MINUTE WONDERS


If you take 2 minutes a day to wash your hands for your physical health then why wouldn't you lend two minutes a day for your mental health? Try these...

Switch...

Each day alternate which hand you use to brush your teeth. Changing small routines like this will help balance the 2 hemispheres of your brain making it easier to achieve bigger goals when the time arises.

Stress Management...

With feet flat on the floor, hold the palm of your hand on the back of your head and the palm of the other hand across your forehead. Now breath slowly down to your navel and slowly release the air again, repeat for 2 mins. This is a great tool to use when you've some decisions to make as it re-energises the frontal (decision making) lobes of the brain.

Cuddle...

According to research from north Carolina's school of medicine a loving (not sexual) cuddle can lower a women's bloodpressure considerably as it boosts oxytocin which is our feel good hormone. 

Ok that's 6 minutes but you were probably going to do the cuddle anyway!!
