If you can’t yet do great things, do small things in a great way.

Wellness Tip:

Ditch The Diet Mentality

Diets don’t work. (There, we said it!) They can even do you harm. Suffice to say, what does work is making sustainable, long-term lifestyle changes.

So, instead of dieting, try:

  • Focusing on the process rather than the end goal. I.e., Focus on building healthy habits day-to-day rather than fixating on a weight loss goal. 
  • Mindful eating. Being present when we eat helps us enjoy food more and get back in touch with hunger/fulness cues. 

If you’ve never tried mindful eating, why not give it a go? Here’s a guide to getting started.

Productivity Tip:

Use a Scheduling App for Meetings

Scheduling a meeting can involve more back and forth than a center court tennis match. Solution? Use an app.

Here are some that aggregate, automate, and integrate your calendars (yes please):

Routine Breakdown

Agatha Relota Luczo, Founder of Furtuna Skin

Agatha Relota Luczo

While she tries to fit in a workout later in the day, Agatha Relota Luczo’s mornings are more work and family focused. After waking at 6 am and stretching, she:

  • Has a shot of extra virgin olive oil and some warm water with lemon.
  • Spends time with her kids and gets them ready for school.
  • Gets to work. “I answer emails, connect with our team, and flesh out everything on my to-do list.”
  • At night, spends more quality time with the family. “We love doing gratitude journals together and I’ve found that it deepens [our] conversations.”

Why it works:

  • Says Agatha: “There are so many benefits of high-grade EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) for gut health.” Research agrees: EVOO has many health benefits.
  • We’ll say it again: strong relationships are the key to health and happiness.
  • Gratitude journaling is awesome – and has lasting effects on the brain.

You need only look inside a Pander Planner to know that we’re all for counting blessings and wins, so we love the idea of also making gratitude a family affair. Have you ever tried it?
