14 Aug Your Health and Well Being – Feeling Good is the Key
Feeling good is key to our health and well being and can affect our daily performance abilities. There are several things that you can do in order to make yourself feel younger, more vibrant and healthier without making a drastic change to your lifestyle pattern.
First things first, it is vitally important that you get enough exercise, preferably at least 30 minutes four days a week. Even if you are feeling too tired to exercise you will be amazed at how much extra energy you will get after exercising. This will also help you to maintain an ideal weight which also has added health benefits. Remember to stretch before and after you exercise as this will help you warm your body up and prevent possible injuries. One particular type of exercise that is very beneficial to do is weight bearing, as this will strengthen your core and skeletal structure. Try to eliminate stress out of your lifestyle as stress has been known to cause premature aging and health problems.
It is crucially important that you keep your mind as young and alert as possible. You can do this in many different ways. Try to be creative and challenge yourself daily which will help to increase your mental capacity. Your body needs at least eight hours sleep a night to regenerate and recuperate. If you’re struggling to get enough sleep try drinking camomile tea or a warm milk drink, have a warm bath before bed, get enough exercise and eat well. Try to avoid drinking stimulants a few hours before you go to bed. Eating a full and balanced diet filled with all of the correct nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants will help you to feel healthy and on top form. Keep away from sugars, caffeine, alcohol and processed foods.
As you can see these are simple steps to improve you health and well being which you can easily take. They do not require a drastic change but can help to make a large difference in your ability to feel good.
