Eating well, exercising, and treating your body like a temple is no longer just a matter of health – now it’s about improving the overall quality of your life and making a positive change.
Another good thing about this is that ‘wellness’ is getting bigger and better by the year, so now you can be healthy and trendy at the same time. Plus, you’ll have plenty of other people across the world doing the same thing so you can always find support in times when you feel like giving up.
That’s why we bring you some of the best new wellness tips you should try right away if you want to improve your life, for good.
The way you start your day matters a lot, so make sure you get up on the right side of the bed from now on. Early birds get so much more than the worm, so go to bed early and get up early – you’ll have so much more energy to get through the day.
Choose carefully what your first meal or drink for the day will be. You need vitamins and minerals and that’s why cold pressed juices are a good pick for a breakfast. Think kale, beetroot, and carrots for a base and add your favourite fruit to make it even more delicious. Head here for some Nourish inspo!
Your digestive system will thank you!
Working at staying fit and eating healthy all the time can be overwhelming. If not done right, it can also put a lot of pressure on you and even have the opposite effect in the long run.
If you are finding that this is the case for you, try to relax and change your mindset. Find a different, holistic approach to healthy living through the daily practice of Move, Nourish, Believe.
Burdening yourself with diets and counting every calorie isn’t the way to go. The answer is in eating healthy and avoiding processed food as much as possible. For instance, inflammation-fighting foods gaining in popularity right now since they can be incredibly beneficial to your health. Include curcumin, ginger, leafy greens, nuts, etc. into your everyday routine and you’ll see the difference.
Also make sure to include quality probiotics in your diet. This will help you feel less bloated and you’ll be able to absorb all the minerals and vitamins you need.
Listen to you body and nourish it with what it needs rather than trying to restrict it.
Your home should be a reflection of your personality and vice versa so it’s true you can improve your life by simply making a few changes in your living space.
Let’s take one great trend as an example – having the so-called green wall inside of your home. It’s like a panel of plants grown vertically. It can improve the air quality and allow you to have your own garden even in a tiny apartment.
Besides, taking care of living beings (plants) will give you a sense of purpose and do you good for sure.
It goes without saying that music has healing powers – when you listen to the music, your brain releases dopamine also known as “feel good chemical” while music can also affect the heart rate, breathing and pulse beneficially and reduce stress and anxiety.
This is especially valuable for those who meditate since music can calm you down and put you in the right mood.
Besides, sound healing experts suggest playing the sounds and vibrations of singing bowls, chimes, and gongs as a way to go into deep meditation, so don’t hesitate to try that as well.
Next-gen wellness retreats are the future of travelling – it’s all about healthy trips and active vacations. (We talked about why taking a holiday is so good for your health right here.)
Your vacation doesn’t have to take you away from your healthy approach to life since now you can choose to get out into nature close to home, visit an eco-resort or attend a yoga teacher training in Bali.
The whole point of these kinds of travels is to reconnect with nature and your true self as well as to improve yourself on a spiritual level.
As you can see, nurturing a healthy lifestyle isn’t hard, especially now with so many healthy options appearing everywhere. Do it to simply try something new or for yourself, as long as it does you good and improves the quality of your life.
