However these unusual times find you, it’s probably not in a place in which you’re used to finding yourself… Less contact with the people in our lives, more dependence on technology, less of a routine or a different routine, different expectations, different temptations, new levels of boredom and, for many, a level of unproductiveness to which we aren’t accustomed.
Paying attention to (and taking ownership of) individual moments that nourish us physically and mentally can have an impact on both our physical and psychological health. And this, in turn, can have a huge positive impact on our blood pressure.
One way you can cultivate these moments and reclaim a sliver of normalcy is to create a routine. Make appointments with yourself:
Routine is structure. Structure provides strength. If we choose to use it to help manage our emotions, it can help us create the environment we need to meet our health goals. And to misquote the great Bill Withers: we all need some structure to lean on.
Here’s to your health!
