Get into the habit of incorporating organic fruits and vegetables into every meal. These nutrient-rich foods can give you more energy and reduce your risk of serious health conditions down the road.
Some of the most delicious and nutritious spring produce include asparagus, arugula, apricots, cherries, and grapefruit. Here’s a handy tip: shop local farmers market for produce.
Stretch Your Body
It’s been proven that stretching can improve your health. However, it’s all too easy to forget to stretch, especially if you have a desk job and spend most of your days sitting. Try your best to get up multiple times a day to walk around and stretch your body. Stretching can improve your joint health and circulation while reducing your stress levels. If you’d like, you can practice yoga or tai-chi on a regular basis to make sure you stretch you get your stretch fix.
Get a Good Night’s Sleep
If you lead a busy lifestyle, it can be difficult to get 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night. However, it’s essential to do so as a good night’s sleep is important for your immune system, metabolism, memory, and other bodily functions.
Invest in a comfortable mattress, take a warm bath or listen to soothing music an hour or so before bed, and turn off the television and any other distractions. Once you get 7 to 8 hours of sleep regularly, you’ll find that you have more energy and are more productive throughout the day.
Spend Time Outside
Studies have proven that spending time in the sunshine and fresh air can do wonders for your health. It can instantly put you in a good mood and reduce your risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. So set aside some time every day to go for a walk around your neighborhood, garden, or participate in any other outdoor activities you enjoy.
Follow a Clean Skin Routine
Your skin is your largest and most visible organ so you owe it to yourself to take care of it. Swap any chemical-based, abrasive skincare products you have for clean products.
