3 Simple Steps to Be More Mindful

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
"Mindfulness" is a buzzword that you have probably seen hundreds of times in the wellness space--whether if it's in an Instagram caption or some health article you read online, it seems to be everywhere. 

We can all benefit from incorporating more mindful practices into our routine, but it doesn't mean we have to drastically change our lives to get there. Below we've listed some simple practices that can help you live more in the present and develop a healthier relationship with the world around you.

#LiveYourLegend

Recall what you're thankful for before you go to sleep.


Nighttime can be a really anxious time for some people. We tend to stress about tomorrow and have our minds going a million miles a minute. What about thinking about what you're thankful for? What good came out of today and what will you wake up feeling refreshed about? This can be in journal form or mental notes, but keeping track of what you show gratitude towards can help you feel less anxious.

Take a minute.
Literally, one minute.


Mindfulness doesn't have to be a 60 minute yoga class. Mindfulness can mean taking 60 seconds, closing your eyes, and just focusing on your breath. Be present. Incorporate these  "mindful minutes" into your day and we can guarantee that you'll feel the difference. Breathing is what keeps us alive. Give it a minute of attention. 

Say "Thank you."


So we already talked about keeping track of what you're thankful for, but studies show that showing more gratitude towards others can actually increase your own happiness. We say "thank you" in passing a lot, but don't actually think about it. We encourage you, next time you pick up your morning coffee, look the barista in the eye with a warm smile and thank them. You'll feel better and you never know how it might change their day.

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Let's face it. There are some days where we just don't want to exercise. Whether you had one too many margaritas the night before or your significant other just broke up with you, there are times when nothing seems more appealing than laying in your bed all day.

Exercise is a mood-booster and pumps endorphins out -- but there are so many types of exercises to achieve this. We've created a list of various types of workouts you can do based on your mood. 

#LiveYourLegend

Feeling sad? Go for a swim.


Swimming is a fantastic low-impact cardio exercise -- and is there anything more soothing than being in the water? You can go at your own pace and you're not being pressured by others as you might feel in a group workout setting. And if you just want to float and be in your own feels? That's cool too. 

Feeling antsy and/or excited? Let's sweat it out at a
bootcamp-style class.


Use that extra "oomph" to challenge yourself with a boot camp class incorporating intervals and group work. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) help improve cardiovascular fitness and  also build muscle strength and create a metabolic afterburn effect--an effect that keeps your muscles working for hours after the workout ends.

Feeling angry? Channel it at kickboxing.

Hit something (not someone) at a high-intensity kickboxing class to get that anger out and turn it into something positive. Process the emotions of a rough day as you punch, jab and high kick your way through the killer workout. 

Feeling happy? Go for a run.

Utilize that positive energy and get outside for a run! Running significantly increases your endorphin count and is also a great cardiovascular workout--let's get your brain, heart and body happy. Let's channel your positive vibes into a productive workout!
Share your story with us

Feeling stressed? Yoga it out.

Mental exercise is just as important as physical exercise. One of the best times to exercise your brain is a low-impact yoga session where you can focus on your breath and the present month with mindful movements. Yoga significantly helps with stress and anxiety and is much more beneficial than being home alone with your thoughts.

Meditation Practices to Help Cope with Anxiety

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
We all deal with varying levels of anxiety on a daily basis. Whether it comes from work, school, relationships, etc., it's important to not let the anxiety take over and start to bleed into all areas of your life. 

While there is no "cure" for anxiety, there are ways to improve it and make it less of a demon to deal with. Scientific studies have shown that meditation can significantly improve anxiety levels, but to a lot of people, meditation is daunting. It's hard to imagine yourself being able to completely escape from the running thoughts, but we're here to help you get there. 

If you are someone who struggles with anxiety, we have gathered some easy meditation tips to incorporate into your daily routine. 

#LiveYourLegend
Start your morning with meditation. Before you dig in for breakfast, open your emails, or start scrolling through Instagram, set aside ten minutes to close your eyes and let your mind wake up with your body. Do it before any thoughts start to consume your brain.
Meditate outdoors when you can. Nature and fresh air do wonders for your mind. When you're surrounded by natural beauty, some of your anxious thoughts can seem more insignificant.
Imagine a sponge gently working away around your skull. Yeah, we know this sounds weird. But imagine the mantra or breath moves the sponge around, slowly wiping away thoughts. You might find the inside of your head broadens.
Practice gratitude. Get into the habit of saying "thank you" to yourself. Climb into bed and reflect for a few minutes on five things that pop into your mind that you're grateful for. And say thank you for them.

We know that everyone is different and not every morning routine is right for every person. Experiment with different combinations of the following activities until you find the morning routine that is best for you!⁣

We are going to break down each of these individual habits and practices and discuss the benefits of each. You will sure to be surprised at how some very basic tasks, performed regularly, can provide such a huge ROI to mind, body and spirit.⁣

#LiveYourLegend
Starting tomorrow morning, Instead of reaching for the coffee first thing, why not fill your glass with water, juice from half a lemon and a teaspoon of Pink Himalayan Salt?

How to Self-Care Based On Your Zodiac Sign

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
It's important to implement some sort of self care practice into your every day routine. Whether it's sweating it out on a spin bike at 6am, going for a walk on your lunch break or dedicating five minutes to meditate before you go to bed, it's important to give your mind a break at some point during the day. 

Most of you reading this know your zodiac sign -- each with different characteristics and habits. Self care doesn't need to be crazy complex, but wouldn't it be cool to know what self care practice coincides best with your sign? We're here to help.

#LiveYourLegend

Aries


You are a natural competitor and have a natural need for an adrenaline rush. Any high paced group fitness classes that get your heart rate up is what you should aim for. 

Taurus

You have a lot of feels and love to be in touch with your body and relax. Try out a Reiki treatment or massage.

Cancer

You're emotional and intuitive and need the time of day where you can relax and connect with your inner spirit. We encourage you to try metta meditation. 

Leo

You're fire. Always on the go looking for the next thing to do on your list. While we appreciate the ambition, you can best benefit from a short nap to avoid burnout.

Virgo

You love making anywhere feel like home. You're crafty and creative -- we encourage a fun DIY project. Paint a "statement" wall. Fix up that old wooden chair. Get your hands dirty!

Scorpio

So you're not the greatest at expressing your emotions but believe it or not, talking about your feelings can actually make you feel a lot better. Try talk therapy for an hour a week.

Sagittarius

You love your independence and expanding your mind in solitude. Take some time each day and sit down with a good book.

Capricorn

We admire your ambition, Capricorn. You get the job done, whatever it may be. But sometimes you overwhelm yourself. Try taking a hike -- while still stimulating, it'll give you the break you need.

Aquarius

Historically, you are the "mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land." It's no surprise that you'll benefit best from a warm bath. Try incorporating Epsom Salt or eucalyptus to make it extra special. 

Pisces

Ahhh, the emotional sign. You are always feeling all the feels. We recommend journaling once a day. Whether it's for five minutes or two hours, getting your thoughts out on paper will be very beneficial.
