More and more research is showing that the key to lifelong good health is what our experts call “lifestyle medicine” — making simple changes in diet, exercise, and stress management. To help you turn that knowledge into results, we’ve put together this manageable list of health and wellness suggestions to help you get healthy in 2018!
1. THINK POSITIVE AND FOCUS ON GRATITUDE
Research shows a healthy positive attitude helps build a healthier immune system and boosts overall health. Your body believes what you think, so focus on the positive.
2. EAT YOUR VEGETABLES
Aim for 8 servings of vegetables a day — raw, steamed, or stir-fried. A diet high in vegetables is associated with a reduced risk of developing cancers of the lung, breast, stomach and ovaries. And many of the most powerful phytonutrients are the ones with the boldest colors — such as broccoli, cabbage, carrots, tomatoes, grapes, and leafy greens.
3. LET SOMEONE LOOK AFTER YOUR BODY AND MIND
Sometimes you need some guidance in the right direction! It is important to find a trusted health practitioner such as a Remedial therapist or Chiropractor who can assist you on your Health journey in 2018 to ensure you keep in tip top shape.
4. EXERCISE DAILY
Did you know that daily exercise can reduce all of the biomarkers of aging? If you want to live well and live longer, you must exercise! Sign up for swing dancing lessons, walk to the park with your kids/neighbour or ride to work.
5. GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
If you have trouble sleeping, try relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga. Set a realistic sleep time and stick to it!
