5 Essential Tips for Feeling Younger

Leading a happy and healthy life is not just about looking younger. It is about feeling younger as well. With the right diet and lifestyle habits, you can rediscover your youthful energy and promote a sense of overall well-being.

Follow these tips to look and feel younger every day:

1. Get moving 
We do an awful lot of sitting in our culture – but the truth is our bodies were made to move! If you sit at a desk most of the day, make it a point to get up at least two times per hour. Take a lap around the office or walk the stairs. Anything that gets your blood flowing!

2. Eat more red
This may sound silly, but red foods like strawberries and tomatoes are super foods when it comes to anti-aging. They contain higher amounts of lycopene which has antioxidant properties. This helps to prevent premature aging of the skin and can even improve heart health.

3. Drink more green
Green tea polyphenols improve the overall quality and appearance of your skin. Not only does green tea help to hydrate you, but it helps your skin retain elasticity which improves your overall health and appearance.

4. Laugh more
You’re heard the saying, “laughter is the best medicine.” Recent data suggests this may hold more truth than once believed. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins which lowers your blood pressure, decreases pain, and can even boost immunity.

5. Get a massage
Your mental health plays a huge role in your physical health. Massage therapy promotes relaxation, stimulates blood flow, and can ease depression and anxiety. This leads to enhanced sleep quality and improved energy levels!

We encourage you to reflect on these positive health behaviors, and work them into your routine. Contact us to chat further about your wellness goals.
