Living your best, healthiest life doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, by making three simple steps a part of your regular routine, you’ll be well on your way to a healthier and happier you. Let’s take a closer look at what they are!
1. Getting Outside
In sunny California, it’s easy to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. But do you do it enough? Experts say that spending time in the sun will not only increase your body’s vitamin D levels, your mood and concentration will improve. You may even heal faster when injured.
One of the best ways to ensure you get enough fresh air and sunshine is by having an outdoor living space that is comfortable and beckoning. The right patio furniture can help a lot with that as can a fire table. Fire tables can be used day or night but are especially nice in the evenings and can make your areas feel cozy and warm.
Another way to get in some outdoor time is with your hot tub. Nothing’s better than an early morning soak on the weekends or a dip in the evening after supper. And who can pass up a relaxing soak after a hard work out? Not only do you get to be out in the fresh air, but your body reaps a ton of health benefits from less muscle pain to better quality sleep.
2. Stressing Less
Speaking of hot tub use, it can be a key weapon in your arsenal to treat the symptoms of stress. Heat and massage, when paired together, are a great way to de-stress naturally.
While the heat of the water relaxes your body and warms your muscles, it speeds blood circulation throughout the body, reducing swelling and inflammation.
The jets, meanwhile, work to relax and loosen your muscles, so you leave your spa with a sense of wellbeing and comfort. The best part of a spa jet massage is that it’s fully customizable, allowing you to target specific areas.
3. Eating Well
It’s hard to feel your best when your body isn’t properly fuelled. A diet consisting of too many processed foods, take out and sweets will leave you feeling bloated, sluggish and tired.
If you want to feel light, energetic and satisfied, then fiber, vitamins and minerals, protein and healthy fats are key. Fiber can be found in vegetables, fruits and whole grains, while lean meats, eggs and nuts are good sources of protein. Fruits, veggies and whole grains are also your best source for vitamins and minerals, although healthy dairy products like low-fat milk and Greek yogurt are a good source for some much needed nutrients like calcium. Healthy fats such as coconut or olive oil work to protect organs and support cell growth, but should be eaten in moderation. To enhance the effects of the healthy food be sure to avoid sugary or fatty drinks and instead opt for water, tea, coffee and low-fat dairy or dairy alternatives.
By following these three simple steps, you’ll be well on your way to a healthier, happier life.
