Check out Mia's tips on staying healthy and making the most out of work from home sessions!
Stock up on dried herbs, herbal teas, dried beans and legumes, whole + ancient grains, canned beans, canned tomatoes, organic broths, nuts and seeds, trail mix, etc.
Planning - planning your meals for the week (maybe just dinners, or lunches and dinners), or even for 3 days at a time if that feels more realistic for you, can really help save time, cognitive energy, and stress during the week. I like planning on a Sunday, then making a grocery list to accommodate.
Batch-cook a few sheetpans of roasted veggies
Choose a whole grain you’re going to eat this week, and prepare it in advance (a few servings worth)
I love making “bowls” as a go-to lunch, they usually consist of leafy greens, some sort of whole grain, a bunch of roasted veggies, a protein, a fat (like avocado, olive oil, olives, etc.), and a dressing! Super easy.
I like to schedule time into my calendar for movement, whether it be to 1) go for a walk, or 2) to exercise (ie. do a youtube class of some sort) - scheduling it into my calendar definitely helps to keep me accountable
I schedule coffee breaks, and mealtimes, so that I can intentionally sit down and enjoy my food/drink (which helps hugely with digestion!), and give my mind a break
Have a bath with magnesium flakes to help you relax
Make a craft
Make a puzzle
Read a book
Do an online yoga class
Facetime with a friend
Schedule 15-30 minutes before and after your work day into your calendar
Review your schedule for the day
Check out your breaks + self-care activities
Make a list of your 1-3 priorities for the day
empty/clear out email inbox + reply to any important messages
Do a “brain dump” of anything you need to remember for later, or tomorrow
Take a few minutes for some breath work, a meditation, or some gentle stretching to help your nervous system recalibrate
