Life inevitably contains a certain degree of suffering. We’re all mortal, and we all have to contend with things like illness and injury sooner or later, not to mention relationship problems, arguments with our loved ones, stressful days at work, financial hardship, and all the rest of it.
But that is by means to say that life isn’t also wondrous, beautiful, and filled with joy and profoundly positive connections, just so long as we’re willing to look — and fight — for them.
Along the way, anything that can improve our overall wellbeing, without taking too heavy a toll in other areas of our lives, is a great boon. On that note, here are a few holistic health tips that may significantly improve your wellbeing.
Consider experimenting with vegan and ketogenic diets
Evidence has linked both strict ketogenic (high fat, moderate protein, virtually zero carbohydrates of any type, including most fruit and veg) and vegan diets with some tremendous health benefits — including improved cognitive function, and potential cancer-fighting benefits.
Both diets have also been linked to increased energy levels, superior mental function, and improved mood — including a lower prevalence of depression.
Either diet might or might not work for you, but the key point here is that what you eat can have a tremendous impact on how you feel on a day-to-day basis. It would be well worth your time to investigate and experiment with diets such as these, and to maintain a strong degree of interest in nutrition in general.
Take herbal supplements and extracts that have few listed side effects
Many of the more conventional and well-researched herbal supplements that you’ll find on the shelves of shops in the Western world, benefit from having far fewer — and less potentially harmful — side effects than serious prescription drugs.
CBD oil, for example, has been linked to many striking benefits, including powerful antioxidant and disease-fighting qualities, and an apparent ability to improve mood.
Of course, you should use a CBD dosage chart if you’re planning to use CBD oil — and you should be sure to adhere to the various dosage recommendations of any herbal supplements or remedies you may be taking. Just because they come from plants, doesn’t mean you can’t seriously harm yourself by misusing them.
Get some regular feel-good exercise on a daily basis
Exercise releases feel-good endorphins in the body, promotes growth and health in the brain via the release of the hormone BDNF, and, of course, has positive impacts on heart and lung health, blood sugar control, and all sorts of different metrics.
Many people have the mistaken idea that in order to experience any of the benefits of exercise they need to run marathons, or spend hours a day on intense and gruelling workouts that leave the floor soaked in sweat. That’s an unfortunate myth.
Even just going for regular walks, or doing a light yoga routine each day, can lead to significant improvements in your overall health and sense of wellbeing.
