R U Okay day (September 8th) is about connecting with people and supporting anyone struggling with life.
If you have a friend going through a rough patch, call them up and ask how they’re doing. Better yet, take time out to catch up with them and do something fun such as indoor trampolining.
If you’re out and about and see someone struggling, take a moment to ask them if they are ok. It may seem like something small, but to someone else it could mean the world.
We also know how important it is to take time out for yourself to relax and unwind. Put on hold any stresses you have just for a moment and relax and unwind with some suggestions of ours below….
1. Treat yourself to a relaxing breakfast
We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So take this time to sit down and relax whilst enjoying a hearty meal. Try making a colourful acai bowl to bring vibrancy to your morning.
Blend 1 frozen banana, 1 cup mixed frozen berries, 4 tbsp. Morlife Acai Powder, Morlife Chia Seeds and 50mL of coconut milk until smooth. Pour into a bowl and top with Morlife Cacao Nibs, Morlife Goji Berries and Morlife Goji Antiox Muesli.
2. Run yourself a nice warm bubble bath
Light some candles, put on a relaxing playlist and pour in your favourite bath soap. This is the perfect chance to zone out and enjoy utter bliss and tranquillity. To make the most of this blissful experience, make up Morlife’s Cacao Bliss for an indulgent rich hot chocolate containing ingredients to help relaxation!
3. Head to the kitchen
Cooking is a fantastic therapeutic and gives you the chance to allow your creative juices to flow! Jump on youtube or Pinterest to get some recipe inspiration then conjure up something fun and different you haven’t tried before!
4. Pamper yourself!
Bring out your favourite nail polishes, face mask and hair mask and put on some fun, happy music. After you finish pampering yourself, you’ll feel like a new and rejuvenated person!
5. Step out and smell the roses
When feeling down and out or stressed, usually a walk and a breath of fresh air is just what the doctor ordered. Go for a nice brisk walk switching off whatever is on your mind to take in natures beautiful surroundings.
6. Nourish yourself with a superfood smoothie
Making smoothies are fun, quick and easy. Pop in your favourite ingredients to nourish the body mind and soul, and sit down with a book or magazine and enjoy every sip!
Try our favourite smoothie recipe: blend 1 frozen banana, ½ cup frozen mango, ½ cup frozen raspberries, ½ cup frozen pineapple, 1 ½ cups water, 1 tsp. Morlife Maca Powder, 1 tsp. Morlife Coconut Water Powder with 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth and creamy.
7. Have a laugh!
Put on your favourite comedian or comedy movie and spend some time laughing away!
8. Colour in
Adult colouring has become the latest craze, for good reason. It’s a fun and therapeutic way to bring out your inner child and relax! Colouring in books can be found almost anywhere, including your local supermarkets.
9. Do some Yoga
Practise some yoga poses in your lounge room or outside to stretch and loosen up your body. There are tonnes of great yoga tutorials and classes on youtube that you can follow easily from comfort of your own house!
10. Plan your next getaway!
Take a look at your bucket list or start writing a list of all the places you want to visit. It doesn’t have to be far away, a getaway is a great way to recharge your batteries and come back feeling fresh and rested.
