Try Running by the Beach!

De-Stress with Meditation!
When was the last time you sat still? Meditation is just for keeping calm, but it is also to help focus on your thoughts. It is a tool to help the mind but also to help de-stress. Try out apps like Calm and Headspace, and work on finding the proper balance between work and life!
Get your Steps In!
Ready to get moving? Abu Dhabi is a very friendly city for pedestrians, especially during the winter months. Make use of the cold weather to explore the local attractions, malls, the beautifully landscaped gardens and even the theme parks and museums. The city has no shortage of entertainment, so get walking!
Try Cooking Healthy Meals!
Do you dread cooking a meal, whether it is for yourself or the family? Use the time you have to master those culinary skills and invite the little ones to help as well. Youtube and popular cooking blogs, including food services that give you ready-to-cook meals are a huge help!
