This week your challenge is called “snacking on movement” a concept I learned from Ben Greenfield.

Here’s how:
Throughout the day, when you would normally have snacks: 10am, 2pm, and 7pm we’re going to snack on movement first!  Think 10 squats & 10 push-ups five times.  Or 10 jumping jacks.  Bouncing on a mini trampoline (or with your kids), playing tag with your kid, going for a bike ride.  It doesn’t have to take long…but get moving!

Here’s why:
“A number of very cool neurotransmitters are also triggered: endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, glutamate, and GABA. You may recognize these names because some of these are well-known for their role in mood control and they explain why exercise can be one of the most effective preventions and treatments for anxiety and depression.” – resource

We want our Royal Family to feel as happy and anxiety-free as they can during this time, and you know what….these habits can continue on after this pandemic!!  So set your phone timer, and start snacking on movement!
