As you may know, there are lots of busy things happening at Rising Sun Physical Therapy and in all our personal lives. But many might ask, how can you stay healthy being so busy and still enjoy some free-time to yourself?
The answer is simple: treat yourself well, stay in tune with your body and your limits, and rest!
Here are 4 secrets to staying healthy, energized and stress-free:
Secret #1: "Healthy Eating & Drinking"
You've probably heard the old saying, "you are what you eat", which is absolutely true!
This is why I eat lots of green leafy vegetables, healthy proteins, and drink lots of water. A gentle summer cleanse is in the air to energize for the long nights. A simple 10 days of staying clean and healthy. (Psst… don’t tell the secret: We will soon introduce you to our brand-new and improved fall cleansing program for all of you people who want to rid your body of those unnecessary toxins. Stay tuned)
Secret #2. "Keep it simple"
You probably know by now that I like to create simplicity while staying active. To do this, try incorporating physical activities and exercises into your daily routine such as biking or walking to and from work, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, and walking your dog. The summer brings lots of activities around the city that can add healthy movement to your life.
Secret #3: "De-clutter your life"
De-clutter your mind, computer, home and work.
Go through your closet and let go of all the clothes you have not worn for the past 6 months, organize your inbox, your desktop, and lighten up your house and overcome your own barriers to an organizational bliss. Let me congratulate you if you are planning to start this process. Don't forget to create space in your house for meditation, to take time out, quiet your mind, breath and just be with yourself. Gas up here with fuel from the NOW, and de-stress your mind. Stimulating your vagus nerve will reduce your stress level and reduce inflammation in your body. OM
Secret #4: "Socialize"
Have a healthy social life with family and friends. Take time to meet with your friends every week, or at least once a month at your house for a fun game evening, or go to events. Are your ready for YOUR new practices and potentially a NEW YOU? What's your upcoming health goals for the summer? I'd love to support you in accomplishing your goals, so stay tuned for new ways to learn how you can stay healthy.
