The way we look at health is changing. It’s very much changing. Because years before, it was easy to think that you had to have a really rigorous workout routine and diet in order to be healthy. It was really that black and white. But now, we’re learning. Because there’s a lot more to being healthy. So much so that it definitely fits way more in the realm of ‘wellness’ than anything else. Because it’s more about your mind and your emotional state and not just your body overall. This is where a lot of people tend to trip up. So instead of putting a lot of pressure on your body, and wanting it to look a certain way, it’s better to look after yourself instead. To help you to do that, let’s take a look at how you can embrace wellness.

1. Drink More Water

One of the best ways to start off, is for you to drink more water. Our bodies are made up of water. So it’s essential that you’re staying hydrated and replenishing your stores. The easiest way for you to do this is to take a bottle around with you and drink two liters.

2. Prioritize Your Sleep

Next up, you need to make sure that you’re sleeping a lot more. Or, more specifically, better. Because your heal when you sleep. So it’s important for you to get yourself into a sleep routine that is going to feel great.

3. Workout In Different Ways

When it comes to working out and what you choose to do here, you should definitely think about trying new things. Because there are so many different benefits to yoga or running or playing sports – you don’t have to just join a gym. Instead, find a workout you love, and stick to that.

4. Put Your Body First

Then, you’re going to want to make sure that you are being a lot kinder to your body. Yes, working out is important, but it’s not the only thing that matters. If you know that you need to do rebab work after meeting with a car accident attorney, book in with a specialist. If you know that you need to just have more rest days for your body to heal, that’s okay. Even monthly massages and daily stretching can help. So just put your body first.

5. Care For Your Mind

And finally, you absolutely need to make sure that you’re looking after your mind. This is something that not everyone will realize is such a big part of your health and wellbeing. But really, it can control everything. If you are in a good place mentally, it’s going to allow you to work a lot more on how you feel in yourself, and the shape of your body. So try to avoid stress. Slow down a little. Allow yourself to relax a lot more. With a healthier and clearer mind, you’re in the best position to live a happier life.

Boost Your Health By Making These Small Changes 

Boost Your Health By Making These Small Changes

Our health is vitally important to us, but there are some things we do each day without even realising that could be hindering our health in some way. It may only be a small thing, but over a longer period, some of the things we do, eat or drink can have an adverse effect on our health. Of course, we all have to live a little and enjoy treats and life, but at the same time perhaps changing the way we do things or our habits would improve our health overall and make us ultimately feel much better. So I thought I would share with you some of the smaller changes you could make that could end up having a big impact on your health.

Give up smoking

Smoking is one of those things that can become a habit very quickly. Many people who smoke may have just started on a whim years ago and now feel like it is more of a comfort to them and find it difficult to stop. But I’m sure some of us are aware that smoking can cause damage to our health in the long term. So taking this habit and ditching it for good could be one of the best health decisions you make. Of course, it’s a decision only you can make yourself.

Embrace sobriety

Drinking alcohol for some can be something you do socially when you are out of the house on a night out. Some will drink quite a bit, and others won’t tolerate too much. But there are some people that could be drinking everyday of the week, perhaps in small or larger quantities. But excessive alcohol can cause damage to our health, and it’s important to understand whether you are drinking too much. Some people really embrace sobriety and others choose to give up midweek drinking, whatever you choose there is plenty of resources available on how to stop drinking that could be life changing.

Increase the amount of water you drink

Water is an excellent resource to boosting your health and wellbeing. Not only can it help rid your body of bad toxins naturally, but it can also improve your mood and energy levels. It can be hard to get into the habit of drinking more water, especially when we have so many options of carbonated and squash drinks. But water is a great way to feel better on the inside, and it can also show on the outside by improving your skin tone and condition.

Cut sugar from your diet completely

Sugar is in most foods these days. You may think it’s as simple as not eating biscuits and chocolates, but you will find sugar in ready meals, in yoghurt and natural sugars in fruit. But sugar can be bad for your health and our teeth, and it is something we can become addicted to without even realising. If you can, try and cut sugar from your diet or at least in the foods you are aware of it in and see how you feel after a few weeks.

I hope this has inspired you to make some small changes that could have a big impact on your health.

Trigger Cool, when Overheating. Tips on Triggers:

Tips on Triggers: Trigger Cool, when Overheating.

With the temperatures soaring in the hot months, many people tend to get heat exhaustion. It can come on very quickly and very simply.

It is best if you feel symptoms of fatigue, dizziness and nausea, to get
out of the heat as quickly as possible. Be sure to stay hydrated with
water. (If you haven’t found yourself urinating in a long time during
the heat, start pounding glasses of water)

So, an easy way to keep your core temperature down, is to put ice or cool compresses on key areas for a short period of time frequently. Those areas are wrists (above the palms), behind the ear lobes, ankles and inner thighs (for extreme heat conditions). Cooling these areas will help you beat the heat and keep symptoms of exhaustion at bay for a little while.

Are You Hydrated?

Are You Hydrated?

It is important to stay hydrated during the hot months of summer. A good way to tell that you’re getting enough fluids is, first and for most, remembering the last time you urinated. If you’ve been out in the sun for hours and haven’t had to pee for quite some time, there’s a good chance you need water.

Another good tell on dehydration is, the pinch test. The pinch test is just what it sounds like. Pinch the skin of your forearm and let it go. The skin should bounce back to normal, without your eyes even noticing it going back to normal, but if it appears your skin slowly goes back into place, then you need hydration.

Water is a great source to hydrate, but if you’re deeply dehydrated, grab a sports drink with low sugar content, yet contains sodium. This will quench your body’s needs faster.

If you find your skin has a yellowish tint, contact your doctor immediately. Staying hydrated is important for both your inside and outside. A lack of fluids can cause chaos to the nervous system, mental status and all major organs, which includes the skin. So, be sure to consume plenty of water during the day.

Remember, consuming alcoholic beverages, especially in the sun; can help in causing dehydration. So, drink in moderation and be safe this summer.
