Here at MyJane we’re dedicated to helping women feel better by providing education and access to information that can amplify your health. As we celebrate Women’s Health Week, we spoke to our MyJane team to share their wellness routines!
This is how we do wellness at MyJane:
– Amanda, Director of Wellness “I try to follow an 80/20 rule for my diet. 80% proteins, veggies, and healthy fats and when I do have something that is a little more indulgent I make sure not to beat myself up over it. I’m conscious about being present with my food and my body responds well when I engage and try to make decisions based on tuning into what my body wants or needs without judgment. And, try to meditate for a minimum of 10 minutes each morning. Just getting that time to breathe and let thoughts flow through helps build my resiliency and clarity for the day.”
Intuitive Eating is a method of creating a healthy relationship with food via mind and body awareness. The goal is to ditch the diet mentality, make peace with food, eliminate negative self-talk when you indulge, move your body, eat when you’re hungry (and stop when you’re full), and respect your body.
– Imogen, Creative Lead “To calm my mind, I KonMari my apartment! I’m organizing everything and enjoy the ritual of cleaning to cleanse my living space and mind. It’s very therapeutic and meditative for me. Plus, I try to get outside and run, although I never like the thought of it, I feel so much better if I’ve been running for the rest of the day!”
– Jacqueline, Program Coordinator “ I drink lots of water. Eight glasses a day is the goal! I give myself a break from screen time by not checking social media after 9PM.”
Digital detoxes are important when it comes to limiting screen time spend on electronics. Studies show that too much exposure to electronics can negatively impact your sleep, relationships, and even self-esteem.
– Jeannie, Director of Administration “ I get a morning run in 3 times a week (always outside in nature). I also designate Sunday as chore day (e a day for meal prep and household chores).” Getting out into nature is one of the best ways to reset your mindset.
Research shows that spending time in nature can improve health and happiness, known for improving vitality and mood, strengthening mental wellbeing, and restoring attention capacity.
– Christine, Director of Product Management “Walking 10K steps a day and eating leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables on a weekly basis are my go-to wellness routines.”
