This year, we welcomed a new member to the Endeavour blogosphere… Wellness Bites – A collection of inspiring personal stories, bite-sized natural health updates, recipes, nutrition, mental health, wellness and business tips brought to you by Endeavour Short Courses.
From the value of critical thinking to nutrient timing, there was a lot of range in what piqued your interest in 2022. Let the countdown begin!
5) The value of critical thinking
Critical thinking really is an art. It requires time, patience, a conscious effort, and practice – all of which pay off in spades in the long run. When we develop our critical thinking skills, we build our understanding and capability to make decisions that affect the quality of our lives. Well-developed critical thinking skills can positively impact our self-image, how we perceive and interact with others, communicate in professional settings and more. This blog on the value of critical thinking has well earnt its place on our list of most-read articles of the year!
4) How to eat sustainably
Over the last decade or so, there has been a spotlight on environmental awareness and making sustainable choices (and with good reason). Our eating habits have a large impact on the environment, which is where sustainable eating comes into play. It’s about making a conscious choice about what we put onto our plates for the health of our bodies and the planet. This article speaks to the good of the world around us and what future generations will inherit from the choices we make today.
3) How to boost your immune system
We truly believe that health is wealth, and we’re so glad that you agree! This blog on how to strengthen your immune system sits proudly in third place. A strong immune system means that you’re less likely to get sick and, if you do, it gives your body a stronger chance of fighting off harmful pathogens (organisms that cause disease). The importance of gut health, how to boost your nutrient intake, and the big difference a small amount of movement can make – just some of the things you’ll find in this post.
2) Seven simple mindfulness practices to help you tap into your potential
Technology, impacts of the modern world, stress at work, taking care of those around you… It’s easy to get caught up in our daily obligations – leaving little time to slow down and take care of ourselves. Paul McCann began learning about meditation and mindfulness more than 20 years ago and since then, has developed a strong understanding of how it can transform lives. As a teacher, practitioner and student himself, he shares seven mindful practices to help you tap into your potential. This article addresses the saying ‘you can’t pour from an empty cup’, by sharing mindfulness practices to support a healthy mind, body, and spirit.
1) Should you eat before or after working out?
Have you heard of nutrient timing? Our most-read article of the year has all the information and answers. Nutrient timing is deliberately consuming specific nutrients around exercise sessions to maximise your performance and results. When and what you should ideally be eating depends on the type of workout, intensity level, and duration. This article highlights the importance of listening to your body and being aware of how it reacts to different conditions.
