It's almost time to ring in the new year...
And that means new opportunities for fresh beginnings, revived motivation, and a better, stronger you!
We all want to experience vibrant, thriving health without the aches and pains that all too often keeps us from doing the things we love...
Why not make 2020 the year that you really take control of your health? We believe in you and will be with you every step of the way!
As we age, there are certainly some health challenges that will be inevitable. But the good news is that a large part of your well-being is totally in your control.
We often prematurely accept defeat and underestimate our body's amazing natural ability to heal itself, with the right tools. In fact, our bodies have actually evolved to have advanced mechanisms designed specifically to heal and repair.
This means that the foods we eat and supplements we choose to take can actually help prevent and even in some cases reverse many of our health concerns. Some things may be out of our control but the fortunate truth is that more often than not, we have more control than we think.
ADD GREENS TO YOUR BREAKFAST
Eating a light, healthy breakfast full of fiber (like steel-cut oats) can set you up for success and keep you feeling full longer. But did you know that most people fall short on their recommended daily servings of greens?
By adding a small salad or green powder to your breakfast each day (or any type of preferred greens), you will begin to notice improvements in your health pretty quickly when done consistently.
It may sound strange, but adding a small salad or green smoothie to your breakfast is light, easy to throw together, and packed with nutrients that increase energy, mood, and overall vibrancy.
FOCUS ON BOOSTING YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
If there's one thing you can do to really impact your health in a big way, it's focusing on keeping your immune system strong. Immunity is key and will keep your body well-equipped to fight off infections and disease.
Key practices for boosting immunity include plenty of rest, a balanced diet, managing stress, proper hydration, and even in natural supplements such as zinc and vitamins C, B6, D3, and E. Supplements can help fill in the gaps where we fall short in our diets, and it can make all the difference!
TRY A MEDITATION OR YOGA PRACTICE
Even if it's just five or ten minutes per day, a consistent meditation or mindfulness practice can transform multiple areas of your life. Meditation can reduce stress, improve mental focus, help you better cope with emotions, improve mood, in addition to a long list of other benefits.
Mindfully slowing down and bringing your attention to the present moment through breathing techniques or mantras will bring more peace, clarity, and calmness to your life, and has even been shown to promote healing in the body.
Try a meditation app, class, or guided meditation video if you're new to meditation and ready to begin this healthy habit in 2020.
START A DAILY WALKING REGIMEN
Improving your overall health and circulation doesn't need to be all about heavy lifting in the gym. Walking for a minimum of approximately 30 minutes per day can also deliver substantial health benefits when done consistently. It's all about consistency!
Whatever your exercise preferences, a regular walking routine has been shown to potentially lower your risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. It can also help you maintain a healthy metabolism and strengthen bones and muscles.
GIVE SUPPLEMENTS A TRY
It's no surprise that our busy lives and advanced society cause us to frequently miss out on key nutrients. We just don't have the time to keep track of it all! This is especially true for adults over 50 when stomach acid levels begin to decrease, leaving us more susceptible to vitamin deficiencies.
Choosing the right high quality supplements can act as a nutritional safety net and prevent any negative side effects caused by deficiencies, such as fatigue and muscle weakness.
Adding a few effective supplements to your routine can give your body an extra boost of vitamins and nutrients, as well as promote better absorption of these nutrients.
Note: When in doubt, always be sure to double check with your doctor before starting a new supplement routine to ensure your chosen supplement is the right choice for your needs, especially when it comes to preexisting conditions.
