Physical Health Eat Well Eating well positively impacts your mental wellbeing. Another reason to make sure you eat as healthily as you can! https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/06/well/eat/mental-health-food.html Be Active Sure, we CAN workout for the next 60 minutes ... but who has time for that?

This timer focuses effort on your core - your abs and your glutes. Don't think the rest of your body will be forgotten, though. This really is a whole body workout.

Eating with your fingers (if you want), plus super yummy cilantro sauce.
