Do you constantly feel like you’re running on empty? Do you struggle to keep up with everyday responsibilities and expectations? Maybe you have too much on your plate, or maybe your body needs help getting back to optimal health.
In our fast-paced society, many people are understanding the importance of slowing down and practicing self-care. We highly recommend investing in holistic health supplements and wellness products while also implementing new practices that allow you to slow down and enjoy life.
Here are our top five tips for thriving, not just surviving, in a busy world:
1. Visit the doctor
Annual check-ups aren’t just for kids. Adults need them too! While this may not seem like a fun “me day” it is absolutely necessary for gaining and maintaining a healthy body.
When a person visits the doctor regularly, they build a relationship with a health expert that makes visiting the doctor more enjoyable. During these visits, doctors track the patient’s heart rate, blood pressure, weight, and basic vitals to ensure nothing out-of-the-ordinary is going on.
These appointments are also a great opportunity to discuss any strange symptoms you may be experiencing, such as insomnia, irregular periods, frequent headaches, and other things that you might not typically visit the doctor for.
Finally, those who visit a physician regularly are more likely to avoid overall health issues. Now, that sounds like a good investment!
2. Invest in products that give you a ROI (Return On Investment)
Small changes can make a huge impact on overall wellness. We encourage you to look into simple wellness products that you can use to boost your immune system, support normal circadian rhythms and improve overall health. These include:
- Air purifiers
- Dry skin brushes
- Castor oil packs
- Blue light blocking glasses
- Non-toxic skin and oral care products
Many of these products can improve your health by replacing items that inhibit it. For example, rather than using candles that are filled with hormone disruptors and other chemicals, essential oils are a safe alternative that provides several other benefits.
3. Find out if your missing anything
That visit to the doctor’s office could be essential to learning what nutrients your body is lacking. Due to certain lifestyle factors, genetic susceptibility, poor absorption, low grade infections, etc., the body may not be getting enough nutrients even while eating a balanced diet. A simple multivitamin can make up for some of that lack, but other holistic health supplements may be necessary to obtain optimal health.
Some of the most common deficiencies our clinicians see are:
- Essential fatty acids such as Omega 3’s
- Vitamin D
Talk to your doctor about which vitamins will help you on your path to a healthier, happier you.
It’s no secret that regular and consistent exercise is good for your body and mind. In addition to helping you maintain a healthy weight, regular exercise provides the following benefits:
- Reduced risk of heart disease
- Controlled blood sugar and insulin levels
- Better mental health and mood
- Sharpens mind for thinking, learning, and judgment
- Builds strong bones and muscles
- Reduces risk of some cancers
- Improves sleep
Exercise doesn’t have to be a chore. Find an activity that you enjoy and will participate in at least three times a week.
5. Take up a calming hobby
The right hobby can help you feel refreshed and restored. A calming hobby will reduce stress levels by helping you relax and focus on something other than work, relationships, and responsibilities. Here are some calming hobbies you might enjoy:
- Playing an instrument
A good rule of thumb for choosing a hobby is this: if your work is physical, choose a hobby that engages your mind and vice versa.
