Simply improve the quality of your life by just picking up some of these healthy living tips. As it can be easy to forget to live healthily, with all the hustle and bustle going on, let this short article remind you of the littlest tips to give your body that extra oomph to take on the everyday challenges!
1. Sniff Rosemary
Smelling this aromatic herb can increase alertness and improve memory. Try this nifty tip before a test or meeting.
2. Eat Fish
Sufferers of dry eyes should up their seafood intake. Salmon, sardines, and mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids, which the body uses to produce tears, among other things.
3. Lavender Dreams
To ease stress and prepare for bed, soak in a hot bath spiked with a few drops of lavender essential oil. Play soothing music while you bathe to unwind further.
4. Get a Massage
Certain trigger points, spots of tension in musculoskeletal tissue, can cause back pain. Ask a massage therapist to focus on these points during a massage.
5. Eat Avocados
To combat dry skin, incorporate more avocados into your diet. They’re rich in monounsaturated fat and Vitamin E, both of which promote healthy skin. They taste great in salads and sandwiches, and even as smoothies.
6. Make Small Talk
Engaging in casual conversation with others can help keep you as sharp as doing a word puzzle. Just 10 minutes of daily chatter appears to improve mental function and preserve memory.
To treat an acute migraine, drink a full glass of water, as dehydration can trigger headaches. Even if you need to take medication for the pain, try wrapping your head with an ace bandage so that it covers your eyes, then lie down and breathe deeply. This often helps the pain pass more quickly.
8. Try Acupressure
Calm a queasy stomach with this quick acupressure trick: Use your index and middle fingers to press down on the groove between the tendons that run from the base of your palm to your wrist.
9. Have Some Honey
Honey appears to be more effective than over-the-counter cough syrup at quelling night time coughing. Use a medicinal-grade variety such as manuka honey and take up to 2 teaspoonfuls at bedtime, and have a good night’s rest.
10. Drink Green Tea
Hot or iced, green tea can help rev up your workout. Its catechins, antioxidants, and caffeine help increase the metabolic generation of heat. Drink a cup about 10 minutes before exercising.
These tips can also help reduce your stress, and enable you to enjoy more activities and better sleep quantity and quality – find the balance in your life!
