Bloom into Wellness this Spring with these Healthful Tips!

Posted in Medshield Lifestyle & Fitness   |   September 1st, 2020

Spring has officially kicked off and there’s no better time for a fresh start. It’s such a great time of year to enhance overall health and well-being and renew those New Year’s resolutions that have fallen by the wayside. It’s never too late to start over,

Check out our five best tips to bloom into wellness this spring:

  1. Spend Time in Nature – Go ahead, breathe in the fresh air and bask in the sunshine. Winter is hard on the bod. Spring renews our spirits and nudges us to get out, enjoy nature and get moving. Why not visit a park, go on a hike or enjoy the beach with your family?
  2. Lighten Up Your Plate – Often during the winter we hibernate and indulge in too many comfort food meals. Spring is the perfect time to lighten our plates with lean proteins, fruits and vegetables.
  3. Garden into Exercise – Did you know gardening counts as exercise? It ranks up there with other moderate to strenuous forms of exercise, like walking and bicycling. It all depends on what gardening task you are doing and for how long. Like any other form of exercise, you have to be active for at least 30 minutes for there to be a benefit.
  4. Drink More Water – Spring is a perfect time to dump the sugary drinks and choose water. Minimally, you should aim for 8 glasses of water a day . Brighten up your water with slices of lemon, lime or orange.
  5. Sleep More – Recommit to getting enough sleep each night. Depending on the individual, 7-9 hours is recommended. Healthy sleep habits can make a big difference in quality of life, concentration and mood.
