8 Simple Tips To Help You Live Well Every Day
Your health and well-being aren’t things you should leave to chance. Fortunately, you don’t have to. Just a few conscious decisions can put you on the right track to wellness.
Today on the Bucklbury blog, we share insight.
Take more steps.
One of the greatest things about the digital age is that we have access to everything from our fingertips. It’s also one of the health downfalls of our society. Make a point to get up off of your computer, put your phone down, and walk. This is especially important if you sit at a desk all day. Look for ways to walk by taking scheduled breaks, using the stairs, and skipping DoorDash in favor of in-person pickup. And if you need to speak to your coworkers? Go to their office.
Keep your healthcare files organized.
Whether you’re seeing a doctor, talking to your pharmacist, or interacting with an herbal health specialist, you should always have your medical records. Scan all of your documents or download them as PDFs, which are the easiest type of file to share. Then, if you want to combine PDFs online, you can use a combining tool to rename your files in order in whatever way makes the most sense for you.
Don’t forget the kids.
Your kids can be one of your greatest assets when it comes time to reclaim your health. Keep them healthy by letting them exercise and eat well with you. Importantly, you’ll also want to keep them safe by doing a deep dive into the different products you plan to purchase. Make a point to utilize only resources that offer an un-swayed opinion.
Drink to destress.
We are not talking about a vodka tonic. Instead, look for drinks that keep you hydrated that also have a stress and anxiety relief angle. Smitty’s Stress Wine is a great example of a delicious, hydrating, and stress-busting herbal remedy.
Get enough sleep.
We know, we know. It’s tough to get enough sleep when you have kids, a job, and, if you’re lucky, a social life. But the amount of time you spend in sweet slumber has a direct effect on how you feel each day. To get your best rest, make sure that your room is cool and cozy and pick the right pillow, which The Sleep Doctor says depends on the type of support you want and the position in which you sleep.
Go green in the kitchen.
While environmentally-friendliness is important, the green we're talking about here is eating more green vegetables. Green vegetables are, bite for bite, one of the most nutritious types of food on the planet. Asparagus, for example, contains protein, potassium, folate, and vitamin C.
A beautiful smile is not only an open invitation for friends and family to socialize, being positive has health benefits as well. MD Live explains that positivity improves your heart and cardiovascular system, wards off depression, and gives your immune system a boost.
Change out your air filters.
That’s not snow swirling around the ray of sunshine coming through your window. It’s dust, dander, and dead insect debris. Change your filters often, and you may notice that you have fewer respiratory issues and that your allergies don’t bother you quite as badly.
Being healthy doesn’t require a full overhaul of your life. Thankfully, simple steps like walking more, researching the products you bring into your home, keeping your medical files handy, and even simply showing those pearly whites, will all bump you up the health and wellness scale without making you feel overwhelmed.
