Now, more than ever – maintaining good health is top priority.
But focusing on your health doesn't require a major life overhaul - simply practicing healthy habits can make a big difference.
Consistency is key for good health, and even small changes to your diet and lifestyle can keep you moving forward on your wellness path.
Here are 5 simple and effective ways to support whole-body health in your own home.
Hydration is necessary for the functioning of all our body’s cells. Did you know that by the time you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated?
Start by carrying your favorite water bottle everywhere and drink out of it when you're getting bored instead of looking at your phone. When you're feeling thirsty, try to drink three big glasses of water instead of just one.
Research suggests that cold showers can help increase alertness and energy, relieve muscle soreness, improve blood flow and reduce anxiety. A fantastic way to add a spring to your step is with an icy blast at the end of a hot shower, or alternating between hot and cold for about 10 minutes.
You probably know someone who follows the intermittent fasting lifestyle and reports improvements in their health and energy. There are ample studies that back its multitude of benefits to your overall wellness.
There are a few ways to practice intermittent fasting, but a popular approach is the 16/8 method – where you eat only in an eight-hour time frame (eg. 11am-7pm).
With this practice, it's crucial to fill your diet with healthy whole foods and squeeze as many nutrients as possible into the “eating hours”.
Adding our supplements to your daily routine provides concentrated nourishment that’s often missing from modern diets.
Finding time to unwind every day is important and a magnesium bath is a fantastic way to do just that.
Magnesium regulates over 300 enzymes in the body and plays a key role in many bodily functions. Adding 2 cup of magnesium-rich epsom salts to your bath can help promote relaxation and reduce stress and muscle tension.
Going for a daily run offers significant mental and physical health benefits. And although you can certainly run on a treadmill to get your steps in, running outdoors offers even greater benefits.
