It is quite common to think that we need to be healthier in our lives, that we need to prioritize wellness, both physically and mentally. Of course, without a clear set of ideas on how to achieve it, this goal remains vague, and will eventually fade into the background. Conversely, setting a series of daily milestones for yourself can help define achieving wellness in a way that is manageable and attainable. Wellness is, after all, a journey of small steps, rather than a single big leap.
If you’re wondering where to get started, then consider Vitruvian Wellness Center’s four simple and realistic ways to promote a life of wellness.
Most physicians abide by something called the 8×8 rule: eight 8 ounces glasses of water a day, which amounts to about half a gallon. Hydration is key to proper organ functioning, lubrication of joints, delivery of nutrients around the body, regulation of body temperature, and much more. Being properly hydrated also helps with mood, sleep, and cognition. Infusing water with fruits like lemon or berries can add a zing of flavor to an otherwise bland drink.
Without a doubt, daily exercise is one of the most effective ways to infuse wellness into your life. Regular physical activity in the form of stretching, running, walking, biking, or lifting weights delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and helps your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. In turn, your heart and lungs work more effectively and efficiently. The result is more energy to take on the day.
Get Good Sleep
Our bodies and minds are like batteries, and sleep is the function that recharges them. A good night’s rest of 7-9 hours is critical for a wide range of different bodily and cognitive functions, and contributes to heart health, boosts in mood, stabilized blood sugar levels, immune response, weight management, and much more.
Spending as little as 30 minutes outdoors each day around trees, sun, fresh air, and the like can provide a breadth of different health benefits, including:
- Lower blood pressure
- Boosting immune system
- Decreasing anxiety
- Aiding focus
- Improving sleep
- And increasing production of Vitamin D
