Using a productivity planner to help with physical wellness

The COVID-19 pandemic has reaffirmed the importance of taking care of your physical health. Not only does it affect your susceptibility to the virus (as well as a host of other illnesses), but it can also play a big role in how you’re feeling mentally. Poor exercise and eating habits can slow you down and cause you to feel heavy, bloated, and fatigued, which can eventually harm your overall mental state. Productivity planning is one way to maintain your physical health, and, by association, your mental health as well. Use a productivity planner to stay on top of these core factors of physical health!

Exercise routines

Studies show that exercise is good for your body, mind, and spirit. Light aerobic exercises like jogging, swimming, or walking boost mood-enhancing endorphins and reduce anxiety and depression. They’re a relatively simple and painless way to get moving, start your blood flowing, and lift your spirits.

Take some journaling time and plan out daily exercises for the coming week. Then, after each exercise session, reflect on how you feel and write it down in your journal. You could also spend time to write down the different reasons you are grateful for your physical health.

Meals

We’ve all seen the memes and the lighthearted jokes about the impact of COVID-19 and quarantine on our diets. And honestly, it makes sense – as our collective world has been upended by the virus, we’ve sought comfort wherever we can find it. For many, that comfort comes from eating beloved foods, which are often high in salt, fat, and calories.

If you want to get your diet back on track, use a productivity planner to map out your meals for the coming week. Make sure each meal includes a nice variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains! You should also load up on foods that are high in fibre and protein, as they will keep you full and energized for a long time.

COVID-19 and quarantine have been hard on us all, but we have the opportunity now to make some positive changes. If you’re looking to include more exercise or a more balanced diet into your life, shop our selection of planners and journals now.
