Pocket Cards: 10 Super-Easy Health Tips for 2021 (reposted)
Dear Reader: I repost this little set of health cards every year. This holiday season, they may be especially helpful (along with Covid mitigations, of course). They remind us to be kind to ourselves and that it’s the tiny things in our lives that can make the greatest difference.
Click on the red button below for your free set of 10 Pocket Cards and feel free to share them with family and friends:
What are Pocket Cards?
These are small colorful cards that contain short, easy wellness ideas you can put to use during your busy day. Each health tip is based on medical research about what the human body/mind/spirit needs for a tiny, daily dose of health. Over time, these precious moments add up to new, healthier daily habits.
Benefits of Pocket Cards:
If you repeat these super-easy health tips daily/weekly, you will gradually increase your own physical energy and contribute to your peace of mind and overall well-being. You will also strengthen your own immune system and your ability to handle unavoidable daily stressors. No miracle here – just “spaced practice” that will transform your daily life, one moment at a time.
How to Use Pocket Cards:
Click on the red button above and then print the single sheet of 10 cards on cardstock or other thick paper. Cut out the cards and tuck them in a pocket, wallet, or purse. Or tape one each day to your computer, dashboard, desk, or wherever you will see the card. Use them as small but powerful reminders of all the tiny ways you can improve your own daily health.
Choose a different card randomly each day (or choose one you specifically want to focus on). If you do two each day, you will use the whole set in five days. That means you will repeat the set at least six times in a month, enough time to move these super-easy health tips into long-term memory and to forge new, healthier physical and mental habits.
At first, tie a small bit of ribbon to a watch, ring, or button to remind you to choose and use a pocket card each day. Remember, you are changing physical and mental habits, one small moment at a time. After awhile, you won’t need the reminder ribbon. Be kind to yourself; change takes time. Give away pocket cards to family members, friends, or work colleagues.
Cheers to you and yours for the upcoming holidays and may 2021 be a safer, happier, and healthier year for all of us! 🙂
