I recently heard that Elysium Health was looking for personal wellness tips to include on an upcoming graphic; something small that helps to contribute to a healthier lifestyle. If you don’t already know Elysium, you can learn more about their research and their product here.
This is actually much harder than it sounds. So many different things help when you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle. I thought about the routines I have, the foods I eat and how I exercise. My top tip was almost about keeping re-hydrated because drinking enough fluids is vital to our health and wellbeing. However, after a re-think it didn’t quite make it as my top tip.
I like the question. I think sometimes being healthy and looking after our wellbeing can seem complicated. There’s so much we should try and do, so many foods to try and fit into our diet, so many smoothies to drink, we need to make time to go to the gym, to meditate, we need to include superfoods and supplements and there doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day.
However, living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t need to be complicated, you don’t need to constantly worry about what you’re eating or make drastic changes to your routine. It’s about the little things that lead to big changes. We don’t have to wake up one morning and change our lifestyle. It can be small steps and yet these small steps can still get us to where we want to be.
So what is my favourite personal wellness tip? My top tip is to find what suits you and enjoy looking after your health and wellbeing. Eating healthy doesn’t mean you have to dread mealtimes and it doesn’t mean you can never indulge. It is all about moderation. Look around, follow some food bloggers or treat yourself to some new cookbooks and experiment with your food; healthy eating doesn’t mean a sacrifice in taste. And the same goes for exercise. If you just can’t stick with going to the gym then stop and find something you do enjoy. It’s about changing your mindset towards what is needed to live a healthy lifestyle. Eating well and exercising can be fun, you’ve just got to find out what suits you.
