Slender Wonder encourages you to grab life and make the most of it. Actions and thought patterns can help you to feel healthy in mind, body and spirit. Here are our tips for living a healthier lifestyle.
Unhealthy living is easy, it doesn’t take motivation to sleep in, eat poorly and do little. Transforming unhealthy habits into healthy ones, now that takes work! Exercise and physical activity are two fundamental factors leading to good health and confidence. When choosing to exercise, choose something you enjoy. Exercise is about being healthy and having fun not suffering and pushing yourself into feeling miserable.
Over 60% of your body is made up of water. Drinking the correct amount of water daily is essential for healthy body function. Water is needed to carry nutrients and oxygen around your body and remove waste. We use and lose water constantly, so must consciously make an effort to replenish our body’s water. Plus, drinking water helps you lose weight!
Positive mental health is part of a healthy life. As the year goes on and the days get shorter, opt for a new method to a happier mind such as meditation. Meditation quietens the mind and calms the soul. Consider placing healthy boundaries to purge the negative people from your life. Having toxic people in your life is only detrimental to your overall health.
Emotional eating is a common way of dealing with stress, boredom and frustration. Eating to fill an emotion rather than hunger will never work in your favour. You’re attempting to fill a void that has nothing to do with food. Getting to the root of the psychological and emotional issues behind emotional eating gives you the opportunity to heal and ensure the weight stays off.
Finally, the team at Slender Wonder suggests prioritising fun. If you work 40 hours a week, chances are you spend most of your time in the office with restricted time and energy for fun. During weekends your excuses are running errands or catching up on television shows.
Making a point of going out with your friends or loved ones at least once a week allows for a change of environment and the perfect opportunity to relieve built up stress. A movie night, Saturday picnic, walk, cycling or anything else you love to do is food for your body and soul.
