People around the world have become increasing more aware of just how important wellness is, which is likely why the market size of he global wellness industry amounted to over 3.7 trillion dollars, according to Stastista.com. Wellness begins by making one good choice, and then another and another. Start with these wellness tips for a healthy routine.
Drink a Glass of Lemon Water in the Morning
The first thing you should do when you wake up in the morning is to drink a glass of warm water with a squeeze of lemon. It’s essential for hydrating the body after a long night without, helping to flush out the digestive system while infusing it with vitamin C to keep the immune system going strong. You’ll likely notice that both your digestion and energy levels improve all day long. Drinking water with lemon first thing in the morning has also been shown to help one maintain a healthier weight as it provides a boost to the metabolism.
Start Your Day with a Walk or Job
Get up just a half-hour earlier in the morning to get out for a walk or job. Moving first thing in the morning will help increase levels of serotonin, the “happy hormone,” increase energy and help you focus better all day long. It also kicks in the metabolism to ensure you’re burning a maximum number of calories.
Ditch the Sugar
Eliminate sugar, especially foods with added sugar like soda, candy and processed baked goods, is not only a significant reason behind serious health issues like heart disease and diabetes, but unhealthy weight gain. Cutting out foods that are high in sugar is a great way to lose stubborn pounds. Just keep in mind that you’ll need to read labels careful as many foods, even those marketed as “organic” or “healthy” can contain lots of sugar.
Don’t Skip Healthy Fats
You’re far better off eliminating sugar than fat when it comes to losing weight, especially healthy fat. Consuming healthy fats in foods like nuts, avocado, coconut and olive oil is not only good for you it can help you reach those weight loss goals. These foods also help you feel fuller faster and stay fuller longer while reducing cravings that makes it easier to stay on track.
Move Around Every Hour
Sitting all day long may be just as bad for you as smoking. If you have a desk job, aim to get up and move around at least once every hour. When you’re watching TV, get up during the commercials. Sitting too long can cause brain fog, fatigue, slow the metabolism and even lead to a poor mood.
Take Regular Health Retreats
Taking vacations to travel and enjoy both active and relaxing pursuits can go a long way for total wellness. It’s long-been known to be a great stress reliever – by booking a health retreat like Eden retreat in Currumbin Valley, Australia, you’ll be getting everything all in one package – not to mention having the opportunity to possibly explore an exotic destination.
