5 Steps Towards Wellness

Everyone wants to feel good, but where do you start? Here are five easy steps to follow to help you get on the right path towards mental and physical wellness

Sleep Schedule

Tired of being exhausted and stressed?

A lack of sleep can cause increases in the stress hormones that your body produces, setting a strict sleep schedule can help relieve the stress, as well as the mental and physical fatigue.

So how do you set your sleep schedule?

Set an alarm for bedtime and the morning, keep it consistent so your body can properly adjust to the schedule. If you have trouble falling asleep, come up with a wind down routine that you can do each night before getting into bed. This could consist of light stretching, breathing techniques or just a nice cup of Chamomile tea, which is caffeine -free and contains sleep -inducing ingredients.

Get Social

Mental well-being often gets less attention than physical health, but it is just as important.

Finding and creating connections with others can greatly improve both your physical and mental wellness. Being social is connected to numerous health benefits and it has been found to lower cardiovascular disease, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Treat Yo-Self

We are all guilty of sometimes just wanting to do nothing and relax. Well there’s no reason to feel guilty! Just be sure to not let treating yourself impact your good habits that you work hard on forming.

Treating yourself to a bit of relaxation can be just what your body and mind need. It is important to find the right balance of work and play that works for you, because that perfect balance not only makes you feel refreshed and ready for each day but will keep you motivated.

Supplement Your Lifestyle

With the hectic lives we live, no one has time to monitor and measure everything we put into our body. This can help explain those strange days where we feel out of it or utterly exhausted, when in truth, all it may be is that we are missing a little bit of nutrients.

That is where supplements come in! They are not a cure-all, BUT they do help you achieve an extra edge nutritionally and can give you a serious health boost.

Supplements can improve your overall health; help manage some health conditions and even help slow or prevent future diseases.

If you plan on giving yourself that extra nutritional edge, be sure to check with your physician or a nutritionist so they can help guide you to finding the right supplements for you!
