THE ELEVATE PROJECT WEEKLY REVIEW
We resumed after the Easter break with a review of the opening chapters of ‘Why We Sleep’ by Dr Matthew Walker. This fascinating read immediately prompted a review of our own personal sleep habits in light of the latest science around how negatively our health can be affected by sub-optimal sleep patterns. Diet and exercise are of vital importance but sleep EVEN more so. The physical and mental impairments caused by one night of bad sleep dwarf those caused by the equivalent absence of food or exercise.
This week’s breathwork session featured a revisit of a number of breathwork patterns, each of which can be used to help calm our nervous system or as an energising go to if you’re experiencing a mid-afternoon slump or struggling to get going in the morning. Sunday also marked ‘World Breathing Day’ and in tribute, Charlie closed out the Sunday Service weekly workout with a restorative breathing exercise.
Today, as our respiratory system is being challenged, more than ever it’s crucially important to breathe fully and consciously for our physical and mental health.
Next week reverts back to our normal week, we highly recommend you get into the habit of prepping your intentions and plan out your goals for the week on a Sunday evening ready to declare with the group on Monday lunchtime’s session for added accountability and to hit the ground running.
Have a great week!
