85% told us you aren’t eating your daily quota of vegetables

Sure it’s easy to say eat your greens, but when you’re racing out the door, upping your daily vege isn’t going to be front of mind. Here are some real life tips to help you reach your daily target.  

1. Veges at breakfast
Get a head start by adding spinach to your morning smoothie – 1 cup of spinach equals one serve of vege.

2. Half plate rule
At lunch and dinner the rule of thumb is half your plate should be filled with vegetables, the rest is quarter carbs and quarter protein.
 
3. Snack attack
Cure 3pm hunger pangs with vege sticks and hummus.

Jamie Oliver's Easy Hummus

1 x 15-ounce can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1 small clove of garlic
1 tablespoon tahini (sesame seed paste)
1 lemon
extra virgin olive oil

Drain and tip the chickpeas into a food processor.
2 Peel and add the garlic, then add the tahini, a good squeeze of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of oil.
Season with a pinch of sea salt, then put the lid on and blitz.
Use a spatula to scrape the hummus down the sides of the bowl, then blitz again until smooth.
Have a taste and add more lemon juice or a splash of water to loosen, if needed, then transfer to a serving bowl.
6 Serve with sliced crunchy veggies, such as carrots, cucumbers, radishes or bell peppers, and some warm flatbreads.

62% of you told us you don’t move your body daily

Moving your body daily doesn’t have to mean schlepping to the gym every morning, there’s incidental exercise, like taking the stairs, or hopping off the train/bus a few stops before home and walking. Plus there’s an internet’s worth of quick home workouts to try. We love this heart pumper by The Movement Society.

75% feel above-level amounts of stress in their work or study

1. Use your breath to create some calm
Sit up tall in your desk chair and focus on your breath, counting every exhale from 1–10. When you get to 10, start over. Repeat 6 times.
2. Move your body
Stand up with your feet at hip distance and raise your arms straight out in front of you. Next, interlace your fingers and turn your palms out. Then raise your arms until your palms face the ceiling. Lift your shoulders to your ears, and let them drop down so your neck is long. Finally, lift your ribs and spine off your pelvis so that you reach your tallest height and stay in that pose for three breaths.
3. The art of sipping on tea
Even the act of brewing a warming cuppa can be therapeutic in moments of stress. Our SLEEP WELLE Anti-Anxiety Tea is a natural and effect blend of herbs that can assist with sleep, anxiety and stress.
