Wellness Challenge: Week Three

This week our focus is on breathing, a Brittany Noonan workout & increasing our vegetable intake.

MIND

The gorgeous Estelle from The Mumma Hub is teaching us how to manage anxiety, increase energy and focus with this simple technique. The best thing is, we already know how to do it! Our challenge is to practice box breathing for 2 minutes (or more) every day. If you have any questions then Estelle is more than happy to help, you can contact her through her website or find her on Instagram @themummahub

BODY

I hope everyone got moving in a fun way last week! Our body challenge this week is to complete the Brittany Noonan water bottle workout. If you missed out on winning a Real Active drink bottle last week then you can get yours from Real Active. They donate 10% of all their proceeds to mental health charities! For some extra motivation with your fitness goals, check out @Realactivemovement on Instagram.

NUTRITION

Last week we made healthier food choices, this week we are getting more specific. Do you eat 5 serves of vegetables per day? (5.5 serves if breastfeeding) I know I haven’t been. This week’s challenge is to find a vegetable based recipe and learn how to cook it. I’ll put some recipe options up later in the week if you’re stuck for ideas. In the meantime see Sarah Moore’s latest post on 10 ways to eat more vegetables.
