Even if you gulp down green smoothies and fit exercise regularly into your routine, there still some small daily lifestyle changes that you can make to improve and maintain your health.
Take a look at the ideas below for inspiration!
Get more sleep
If you’re wondering how to improve your health naturally, look no further than your sleeping habits. Getting a good night’s sleep is essential to let your body rest and restore itself after a busy day. A lack of good quality sleep has been linked to a number of health problems such as heart disease, weight gain, infertility and a poor immune system.
If you struggle to get a good night’s sleep, try practising good sleep hygiene. Make sure you go to bed and wake up at the same time every day (even at weekends!). Ensure your bedroom is quiet and dark, and limit your use of electronics before bedtime to help you fall asleep more easily.
Make time for mindfulness
Mindfulness is a type of meditation which encourages you to ‘live in the moment’ rather than dwell on the past or fret about the future, and can help you to adopt better habits for managing stress and worry. Mindfulness can take as little as 10 minutes every day, and it can help to reduce stress and boost wellbeing.
Add a supplement to your daily routine
One of the simplest ways to maintain your health is to ensure that you’re getting all the vitamins and nutrients that you need. Supplements can be specifically designed to support your health, helping you to safeguard your nutritional intake and feel your best, whatever your age! (Always seek professional advice).
Make easy swaps to boost your diet
As the old saying goes, ‘you are what you eat’, so take a look at your diet and figure out where you could make improvements. Even simple swaps will help you to better nourish your body, without missing out on flavour or satisfaction.
Instead of eating white grain pasta and bread, opt for wholemeal for a boost of nutrients and fibre. Swap sugary drinks for water and choose low-salt options of your favourite foods where possible. These swaps are simple, but will have a real impact on your health.
Talk about mental health
Having a healthy lifestyle isn’t only about eating right and exercising regularly - your mental health is just as important. 1 in 4 of us experience mental health issues each year, so all of us can benefit from putting some time aside to look after our mental health.
Make it a priority each week to do whatever helps you - whether that’s spending time with friends, visiting a therapist or counsellor, meditating, exercising or spending time outdoors by just simply going for a walk. By making your mental health a priority, you can reduce stress and maintain your all-round health.
