Are you thinking about making 2019 your year to get in shape – physically, mentally and health wise? Everyone wants to look and feel their best all the time, and it’s easier than ever these days with so many great and easy ways to take care of yourself better than ever. If you’re needing to make a list of things to get started in terms of getting into your best physical health and shape, here are some key ideas to help you along.
Dental health is a huge part of overall health and helps us not only feel great but also look great too. When we have issues with our teeth such as decay and rot, cavities, abcesses and the like it can cause unnecessary knock on effect problems such as bad breath and low self confidence. Missing teeth can be a huge problem too for those who want to look their best. While visiting the dentist can be expensive depending what you have done, it’s important to visit a renowned professional, known for their quality such as a Harley Street dentist in London.
Exercise is a great way to get into and stay in shape as well as help give your metabolism and natural detoxifying systems a kickstart. Exercise also helps release endorphins, which provide a sense of euphoria, sometimes referred to as ‘the runner’s high’. Not only this but exercise helps burn off stress and also can aid in controlling anxiety and depression. With so many great benefits, isn’t it time you started a cool exercise routine?
By diet we don’t mean dieting. Dieting and diet are two different things. Diet consists of the regular things you eat everyday that consist of your main meals or snacks while dieting frequently means restricting food intake and/or eating foods with lower calories. While the initial weight loss of dieting may seem promising, it plateaus quickly and can backfire if your body enters starvation mode, making it harder for you to burn fat as it resorts to holding onto fat stores for emergencies.
Instead, consider adding leafy greens, bright fruits and things like legumes and nuts to your diet. All of these are chock full of healthy vitamins and nutrients that will keep you looking fab and glowy while providing everything your body needs to stay in tip top shape.
Skin care may seem like it’s at the bottom of the self care list but nothing could be further from the truth. After all, people see your skin every day, especially on your face, hands and possibly arms as well, so it’s worth taking care of your skin as well as the rest of your body. Drink plenty of water, eat vitamin rich food and use moisturisers that are developed for your particular type of skin. Combination skin can be difficult to moisturise with creams that are too oily, so be sure to either ask a professional or go with a reputable brand you know and trust.
So there you have a couple of great tips on looking and being your best in 2019 both physically and health wise. What will you choose to focus on for the first part of the year? We’d love to hear from you!
