The season of sunshine and flip flops is finally here! Three tips will help you improve your wellness while you enjoy the season.
-Water-- Try for 64 ounces a day. Seltzer counts! Per the ADA, be careful though, as the pH and additives can harm tooth enamel and add calories.
Sleep-- Adults need 7-8 hours a night. Try setting a "good alarm" to remind you to get ready for bed.. Doctors recommend a consistent wake-up time each morning to maximize sleep quality, and a 20-minute walk to start the day. Your body and mood will thank you.
--Sunshine-- Exercise and sunshine boost your mental and physical health. The CDC recommends 2 1/2 total hours of "moderate" physical exercise each week. Remember to use a lot of sunscreen (most people don't use enough), and reapply every 60-90 minutes.
Finally, give yourself a break. Life is a journey, not a sprint. Few people meet all of their health goals., so yourself a hand for what you do accomplish.
About the Author
While developing and marketing products in the Beauty industry I naturally became interested in things associated with beauty, both inside and out. As I learned about nutrition, exercise, meditation, yoga, toxin-free skincare, mindfulness, clean eating... (and the list goes on) it became clear how important they all are not only to beauty, but to a healthy, balanced, happy life. Volumes of information scattered across so many platforms felt overwhelming, and hard to use. Thus I decided to bring it all together in one place so it could be acted-on collectively. This idea became Collective Wellness. It is both an ever-growing collection of wellness information and a collective of people---a community that is learning, growing and sharing the wellness journey together. I hope you join us. Welcome to Collective Wellness!
