3 Tips Proven to Keep You Feeling Young and Healthy
Our society is chronically stressed. This has been especially true during the last year, and the signs of all of that extra tension can leave marks on your body and mind. You may begin to feel so much older than you really are, which may lead you to look for ways to combat stress and the signs of premature aging.
You’re likely to come across some pretty sketchy and unreliable advice during your search but these health and wellness tips from GlassWing Organics have been proven to work:
Eat to Protect Your Physical and Emotional Health
If you’ve been feeling anxious or depressed lately, the state of the world could be at least partially to blame. Your diet could also be a culprit, especially if you are consuming more processed foods. These foods are more commonly found in the center aisles of your favorite grocery stores and include cereal, cookies, chips, canned goods and ready-made meals. When you eat too many of these foods, you are putting yourself at a much higher risk for health conditions that can cause you to feel older, including depression, anxiety and diabetes.
The best way to combat the effects of processed foods is to balance your diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Needless to say, sometimes convenience is important when it comes to eating healthy. That’s why if you are going to keep canned and packaged foods in your pantry, you should look for recipes that will help you turn them into satisfying and healthy meals. You can even clear out your pantry with an “empty-the-pantry” stew.
Show Some Love and Self-Care to Your Surroundings
Believe it or not, the state of your home can play a huge role in how you feel. A cluttered, disorganized bedroom, for instance, can make it difficult to fall asleep. Not only can clutter cause you to experience a significant spike in your anxiety, but it can also trap “negative energy” in your home, which can ultimately affect everyone who lives under your roof. So, whenever possible, take some time to declutter and organize your home. That way, you can enjoy your space without the anxiety and stress that messiness can cause.
Take a Break From Sitting at Your Desk All Day
As people get older, they tend to lose tone and mass in their muscles. More formally known as sarcopenia, this degenerative loss of muscle mass tends to start during your forties but you may notice some muscle loss even sooner. Diet can play an integral role in preventing or delaying sarcopenia but maintaining an active lifestyle is also important. In fact, the health risks associated with a sedentary lifestyle can lead to problems with your body and skin.
Buying a fitness tracker or smart watch can be an effective way to motivate yourself to get moving and prevent muscle loss and other effects of sitting all day. Access to the features includedwith the Apple Watch Series 6, like blood oxygen sensors, electrocardiogram generation and activity trackers, could do the trick. You can also motivate yourself further with a workout app like 8fit that can help you exercise safely at home at a small fee.
When it comes to your health and wellness, try to forget all of those social media gimmicks and online tricks. Focusing on your internal health and well-being is the true key to healthy aging. After all, when you adopt basic self-care practices that nourish your body and mind from the inside, the results will begin to shine on the outside.
