Five Ways to Feel Your BestOct 2017
Top tips for feeling on top of the world, all day, every day.
1. Exercise your way
Working out doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, finding an exercise that you love can mean that you’ll be more likely to stick to it, so don’t force yourself to run every day if you hate running! Don’t be afraid to try something new, or take a friend along with you to share the laughs. Just be sure to get in 3-5 hours each week of some form of moderate exercise – whether walking, swimming, cycling or dancing & resistance training, such as light weights, yoga or pilates.
Of course, diet plays an essential role in feeling your best each day. It’s simple – eat less of the bad stuff (sugar, processed fats, artificial foods), and more of the natural and good stuff – wholefoods, natural ingredients, no hidden flavours, plant-based etc. Plus quit all addictions, including excessive drinking, any smoking, etc.
Taking an interest in, and being part of, your family, friend’s or even neighbour’s lives can add years to your life, plus you’ll be happier and healthier. Make the time and effort to stay in touch with friends and socialise with people who are positive and fun to be around.
4. Cultivate a healthy sleep habit
A regular sleep routine of ideally, seven to eight hours each night can help you avoid gaining weight and put you in a better mood for the day. Aim to go to bed and rise at the same time every day to create a positive healthy habit.
5. Top up your energy stores
Sometimes, no matter what we do, we feel tired and unmotivated to get up and go. This may be because your energy levels are depleted, due to illness, poor diet, lack of sleep, stress, or environmental factors. Taking Ubiquinol, a naturally-occurring nutrient which is produced by the body and is an active form of the antioxidant Co-enzyme Q10, can help to restore your energy levels.
Speak with your healthcare practitioner before supplementing with Ubiquinol. Always read the label and use only as directed.
