Hello, here are your weekly lifestyle delights, things I’ve discovered for you, enjoyed, pondered, done …
An Exercise to Get Your Body Bikini-Ready …
One of the most effective exercises for getting your whole body in bikini-shape very quickly … and in a healthy way … is doing burpees following a HIIT (high intensity interval training) approach as outlined by Martin Gibala in his book The One-Minute Workout: Science Shows a Way to Get Fit That's Smarter, Faster, Shorter.
Go to YouTube to see how it’s done and then, every morning, do 10 as quickly & intensively as you can, take a break counting to 15 and repeat the cycle 3 to 5 times. If you want to really push it, repeat at midday and/or in the late afternoon, latest 4 hours before you go to bed, so that your body is not too revved up when you try to sleep.
A Travel Destination That Breathes History & Luxury …
If you're looking for a travel destination that breathes luxury & history, the Hotel Vestibul Palace in Split, Croatia is an ideal place to go to. It still incorporates the walls of Roman Emperor Diocletian's palace built in the 4th century AD.
Plants That Improve Your Sleep …
… include snake plant, aloe vera and English ivy as they remove toxins from the air & release oxygen. You might also want to add valerian or lavender for their calming effects. Sleep well!
I Eat My Sushi With …
MCT oil. For one soy sauce is not very healthy for us women (see Katie, the Wellness Mama’s article). And MCT oil actually not only tastes delicious with sushi, it also helps to burn those calories in sushi quicker.
