Wellness Tips For A Healthy Lifestyle

Nov 01, 2022Géraldine Poukens

In today’s world finding harmony and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is very challenging. With deadlines looming and schedules overflowing, stress becomes a constant companion. That’s where wellness and self-care swoop offering a lifeline to sanity amidst the chaos.

We have already shared self-care tips that should be added to our daily routine, and today we are diving into wellness which is equally important as self-care as it helps reshape every aspect of everyday life. Bringing  equilibrium in every facet of life.

Wellness Top Tips

1. Stay Hydrated

    Kickstart your day with a refreshing glass of water, acting as a natural detoxifier and skin saviour. Drinking a full glass of water first thing in the morning is very good for digestion as it flushes out all the toxins from your body, prevents dehydration and enhances your skin’s health paving the way for improved digestion and a radiant complexion.

    While starting your day with a cup of coffee might be a habit to boost our energy, the benefits of drinking water are numerous. It reduces anxiety, fatigue and is great for your skin. 

    But how much water is enough, you ask? Factors like health status, diet, physical activity levels, and general lifestyle play a pivotal role in determining your water needs. 

    You might have heard about the age-old adage of drinking eight glasses a day. But it's quite tricky because people can get hydrated from other beverages, fruits, and veggies as well.

    So, sip smartly, folks!

    2. Have a Good Night's Sleep

      Ah, the sweet serenade of slumber! If you have things in your mind they will keep you awake, disturb you and keep you away from a very much needed restorative night's rest. A full night's sleep is really important. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), a minimum of 7 hours of sleep is mandatory for adults aged 18 to 60 to rejuvenate the mind and body.

      Poor sleep quality will cause stress and fatigue and some of you might struggle a lot for good sleep. For a peaceful sleep, you can embrace calming rituals and quieter activities such as reading, journaling, or indulging in a cup of herbal tea before bedtime.

      Pro tip: Transform your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary with a cool tone to enhance the room environment and sleep better. Before you go to bed, turn off all your devices such as phones and computers.

      3. Take Healthy Vitamins

        Let food be the medicine! Ensure your body gets its daily dose of essential vitamins and minerals with a balanced diet, not only good for your physical health but is also great for your mental health. Adults, especially when working, often skip meals due to busy routines and schedules leading to lack of nutrients.

        For those on the go, taking a multivitamin is an easy and quick way to fulfil the nutritional gaps in your eating pattern. You can set a reminder on your phone in case you don’t forget. Multivitamins contain vitamins and minerals that are mandatory for your health. Organic vegetables and herbs are great sources of vitamins. No matter what you eat or which diet you follow, your body still needs all of the nutrients to stay in tip-top shape.

        4. Eat Nuts and Seeds

          Snack smart with nature's powerhouse—nuts and seeds! These crunchy delights are great sources of proteins, fibres, vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. Eating nuts regularly improves health in different ways such as reducing diabetes, inflammation, and cholesterol levels and also reducing the risk of cancer. 

          According to Australian Dietary Guidelines, adults should intake 30 grams of seeds or nuts in a week. With a variety ranging from almonds to chia seeds, there’s something for every palate.

          Here is a list of nuts and seeds that you should eat: Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Cashew nuts, Hazelnuts, Macadamias, Pecans, Pine nuts, Pistachios, Walnuts, Peanuts, Pumpkin seeds, Flax seeds, Sesame seeds, Poppy seeds, Sunflower seeds, Psyllium seeds, Chia seeds.

          5. Eat fatty fish

            Make a splash with fatty fish—a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.  Twice a week eat fatty fish, a high-quality source of proteins that reduce the risk of heart disease.

            Inflammation is dangerous and harmful for the body as it damages blood vessels and causes heart disease and strokes. Fatty fish is an unsaturated fatty acid that reduces inflammation, decreases triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduces blood clotting, and regulates heartbeats.

            The types of fatty fish that you can eat are: Salmon, Sardine, Atlantic mackerel, Cod, Herring, Lake trout, Canned light tuna.

            6. Limit Sugared Beverages

              In a world filled with sweet seductions, moderation is key. Trim the excess sugar from your diet to not only shed pounds but also boost overall nutrition. Keep an eye out for sneaky sugars lurking in packaged foods, opting instead for fresh, wholesome alternatives.

              34.2 million people have diabetes. Cutting or limiting sugar intake not only helps lose weight but also improves overall nutrition.

              Checking nutrition labels on the packaging and reading the ingredients is the best and simplest way to cut sugar and make healthy choices. Sucrose, glucose, fructose, corn syrup, and hydrolyzed starch all are forms of sugar. Opt for fresh and organic foods instead of processed foods, choose unsweetened cereals and oatmeal over sugar cereals, drink fresh fruit juice instead of drinking packed juices, and eat sugar free plain yoghurt instead of sweet yoghurt.
