2020 has been a challenging year for all of us, especially on the health front. If you’ve made it to 2021 unscathed, congratulations! But this good fortune should not be taken for granted.
Certain lifestyle habits, even the ones requiring the smallest efforts, can have a long-term impact on your physical and mental health. Incorporate some of these into your life, and who knows, maybe you'll live to be a 100!
Incorporate Meditation in a Mundane Routine
Most of us go about our daily activities in a very mundane and thoughtless manner without giving ourselves a break.
Meditating, for even just 10 minutes every day, can transform your life. It can help reduce anxiety levels, boost immunity, and allow you to feel calmer and relaxed. For beginners, though, meditation can seem very daunting.
To overcome this, we suggest keeping an open mind until you start seeing its benefits; this could take a few sessions. And most importantly, find a peaceful space to meditate—like a sauna! When in a sauna, your muscles are more relaxed, which makes shifting your mind's focus from the body easier.
Ditch the Brown Carbs for Some Greens and Colorful Fruits
This is not just about losing weight—it’s about giving your body the best nutrition that you possibly can. Even if you can’t give up carbs completely, make it a point to eat something green every day. This can contribute significantly to your daily vitamins and minerals intake requirements.
If you find it challenging to incorporate solid fruits and vegetables into your diet, try smoothies. In fact, make it a point to drink lots of water and a smoothie every time you get out of the sauna—nothing like a double detox!
Unwind Everyday with Some Relaxing Time in a Sauna
Saunas are so underrated when it comes to your overall health. Some people may think of it as a luxury, but believe us, it's necessary for your physical and mental health. Twenty minutes in a sauna every day can help you address multiple health concerns.
The relaxing environment provided by saunas can help reduce depression and anxiety and give you great skin and better immunity. Some doctors even recommend saunas for cardiovascular diseases and weight loss
You can make your time in a sauna more relaxing by using Clearlight saunas.
Incorporating some of these habits into your daily lives can take time, perhaps a few years. But what you can do immediately is invest in a sauna, and the rest can follow. In fact, we might be able to help you with that.
While you can always go to public saunas, we don't recommend it given the COVID restrictions—get one installed in your home instead!
