This year has shown us how important it is to take care of ourselves and the ones around us. At the same time, the months spent indoors, the travel restrictions, and social distancing measures have made it incredibly challenging to remain happy, healthy, and motivated. And, now that winter is here, there are even fewer occasions to spend a sunny afternoon in the garden. However, all this makes it crucial to understand how you can support yourself throughout these challenging months. Below are some steps you can take to work towards perfect health.

It All Starts Within Yourself

You – and your mind – are much more in control of yourself or what you think. Even if you have found the past months difficult to deal with, it might be the right time to discover what your mind can do when stimulated. For this, there is no need to sign up for a course or retreat. Instead, you might decide to learn something new or start meditation sessions to gain a better understanding of yourself and your mind. 

Reach Out to the Ones Around You

Over the past months, we have all been dealing with sky-high levels of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty. The travel restrictions and social distancing measures have made it even harder to cultivate those relationships that are the closest to our hearts. However, technology, this time can help! Make sure you schedule regular catch up calls and coffee chats with your friends and family. 

Rethink Your Habits

Your lifestyle has a greater impact on your well-being than you would think. For example, the way you start your days can impact the hours ahead or even your entire time. Nutrition is also crucial in looking after your body. Through the right foods, you can start detoxing, feeling more energized, and love yourself a little more!

If you are not sure how to change your habits under this aspect, you might consider speaking to a professional nutritionist who can guide you along the journey. You might also consider trying a different way of eating such as plant-based diets or organic nutritional regimes.  

Find Support in Nature

We all tend to spend most of our time indoors, something that has been made even worse by the various lockdowns we have gone through. However, sometimes, there is nothing more therapeutic than getting out of your four walls and reconnecting with nature. Just a short walk in a park, forest, or beachfront can help you breathe in the fresh air and benefit from sunlight. Studies have even confirmed that being in contact with nature can have healing properties and help you feel better emotionally. 

Find Professional Help

Sometimes, you might need the guidance and help of an expert in the field. The past months have been challenging for everybody, and it is only natural to need additional help. Getting in touch with professionals such as those at Meridian Psychiatric Partners can help you identify the right path to work on your emotional health and go back to living your life to the fullest.

Are You Living A Sexually Healthy Lifestyle?

Are You Living A Sexually Healthy Lifestyle?

There are many ways you can stay fit and healthy for your body, but what about sexuality? Sex is a part of everyone, you can’t help being who you are and we all have urges. However rather than thinking about sexy only when we want it, we need to start living a more sexually healthy lifestyle as well. For example, you may not even know that there are certain things you can do to improve your sexdrive and the health of your reproductive organs. We can’t demand our respective tools to jump into life whenever we want them to and not be in some kind of discomfort. We need to have a good heart first of all as our blood pressure and heart rate massively spike when we are in the act. We also need to stay active in between each meeting and that requires some different kinds of exercises.

For your benefit

The fat distribution for men and women is very different. Men store most of their fat on their upper body. Usually it’s all around their stomach and on the waist. For women however it’s mostly in the lower body such as in the hips, buttocks and legs. So to help your body be more ready for sex, you should workout these areas the more often. You don’t need to do weight training as this will burn off a lot of fat which you need. Instead you should do aerobics that focus on your buttocks and legs. This can be things like standing bodyweight squats, calf toning exercises and lunges to improve your rear. Overall this helps your joints as well, making you more flexible and improving your overall stamina too. 

On the go

You’d be surprised at how many couples have spontaneous sex. It’s not all about pre-planned meals with candlelights and romantic music. Many people would prefer to just have sex when they want it no matter where it is than have it planned. It’s just more exciting that way, but don’t forget you don’t want any unplanned mishaps. The benefit of pre-planned sex is that you can plan it out; obviously. So if you’re on the go, don’t make the unfortunate mistake of not carrying contraception options. You have many different contraceptive measures for men but also for women. It’s not just the pill, but things like the femidom and the ring. These things will help you and your partner have safer sex and prevent diseases from spreading or any unwanted pregnancies from occuring.

Engage in fantasy

Believe it not, sex can get boring. If it’s just too predictable it becomes a chore rather than a pleasure. So engage in fantasy. Talk about your sexual desires, secrets and fantasies with your partner. But don’t just talk about them, act them out. You can fulfill each other’s fantasies and mix it up a bit. Keep sex fun, adventurous and indulge in your guilty pleasures.

Many of us aren’t worried about sex until we need it. You should work to have a better, healthier sex life by keeping your body is tip top shape. Engage in fantasies and spontaneous sex, but always be careful and be safe as well.
