You have only one body, and it has to carry you through life. Show it some love! And if you do, you’ll feel fabulous. Experts say that if you build a happy relationship with your body, you’re more likely to lose weight, feel energetic, or move towards whatever your definition of health is. The best part is that loving your body is fun. Whether you’re socializing with friends and family, watching a funny movie, or going on vacation, all types of fun lead to the lowering of both stress and blood pressure.
Here are more ways to treat your body right:
Inhale, exhale, repeat. That’s all it takes to centre yourself and refresh your mind, slow down, and gain perspective. Better breathing can also improve your concentration and help you to sleep better.
Fruit and veggies are tasty ways to treat your body well. But it’s also okay to indulge in chocolate or whatever your gourmet vice is, in moderation, especially if it makes you happy.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day to hydrate your cells and boost your immunity. In the evening, indulge yourself with a glass of red wine—it’s full of cancer-fighting antioxidants.
As poet Thomas Dekker said, “Sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.” Research suggests that regular nappers are 34% less likely to die of heart disease.
Finding comfort is about lowering your anxiety and stress. Feel good in the clothes your wear, the shoes you walk in and the bed you sleep in. A Carole Martin comfort bra is the perfect place to begin.
How easy is that? Good health doesn’t have to be hard work. What improves our mood also improves our overall well being. Treat your body well, and it will return the favor.
