As we all should know by now, eating well has so many benefits! It will lift our moods as well as our body health, keeping things like our digestive system on a positive track! However, there are so many other things that can also help your overall health and well-being. This blog will cover tips that Joy McCarthy, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, has recently spoken about, to benefit your overall health.
Joy McCarthy is the founder of Joyous Health, a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and a best-selling author. Joy has recently spoken about how “sleep, stress, and sex impacts your overall health and wellbeing”. Within her weekly classes, she sets tasks to help the attendees with their general health.
The tasks were:
Get to bed before 11 pm 3 times next week. See if you feel the benefits straight away. Studies have shown that even going to bed 15 minutes before your usual time will have a massive impact on your health, well-being, and even your appetite-controlling hormones.
Try to avoid watching TV or being on your computer for 1.5 hours before going to bed. Why not try other activities like reading, meditating, or even listening to music to try to calm yourself before going to sleep?
Many electronics give off a blue light that suppresses the body from releasing the natural hormone, melatonin. Melatonin helps you keep a regular sleep pattern, encouraging sleep. Therefore trying to avoid these lights would benefit your sleep quality.
By keeping a food diary you’ll be able to track what food you’re consuming, allowing you to make necessary changes if needed. Even including an extra portion of fruit and veg could benefit your well-being extensively.
If these tips worked for you, drop a comment below on how they made you feel and if you will continue with them.
