Posted on May 18, 2011 by Tools For Wellness

In our last post, we talked about the key to wellness. We know how important it is to stay well and to listen to our body’s needs. Sometimes those needs require long term solutions, like a treatment plan set up by your doctor, but in some cases, feeling well can start with something simple.

Eating healthier can be one of the things you do today to improve your overall wellness.

Here are 5 things that you can do today to improve your body’s wellness:

  1. Take a nap. Chances are, if you’re like most people, you’re not getting enough sleep. Napping for an hour in the afternoon can give you the recharge you need to tackle the rest of your day.
  2. Drink more water. Water helps you regulate your body temperature and cleanse toxins, not to mention, it makes you feel good!
  3. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Fresh produce is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to help to keep us healthy. Plus, these foods should be the staple of your diet, so make sure that you’re getting as many fruits and vegetables as possible.
  4. Stretch. Many of us spend our days cramped at a computer desk. Taking a few moments to stretch every hour can improve circulation, boost energy, and even give us a better sense of well-being.
  5. Think positive. The power of thinking positively can mean more than you know, so surround yourself with positive vibes and think healthy!

What are some things that you do to keep your body, mind, and spirit in balance?
