(BPT) - Improving wellness is all about eliminating the negative, focusing on the positive and taking steps to live your best life. Embracing a mind, body and spirit approach to wellness can be the best way to enhance your general well-being and experience the world on your own terms. And it can be fun and easy! Here are the top five ways millennials can improve their overall wellness and some tips on how to get it done.
1. Eliminate stress
Sometimes things just get to be too much. But there are a lot of simple ways to turn down the noise when you’re feeling stressed out. Experts say exercising, journaling, lighting a candle and reducing your caffeine intake can all help you manage stress more effectively. In the big picture, avoid relationships that only seem to bring you down and focus your energy on the people and things that make you feel like you.
2. Sleep better
Getting quality sleep is key for both physical and mental health. To start sleeping better, try to set a consistent sleep schedule, reduce light in your room and put your phone down an hour before bed so your mind can start to relax and you can fall asleep faster. Your favorite Instagram influencers will still be there in the morning, and you can wake up rested, refreshed and ready to post your own #RiseAndGrind pics.
For nights you really need help relaxing to get rest, you can also try natural supplements like Sweet Dreams from n* by NutriliteTM brand. These vegetarian gummies use melatonin and passionflower, a traditional botanical, to promote a good night’s sleep.
3. Prioritize self-care
To wake up on the right side of the bed every day, you need quality sleep. But you also need to make time for self-care in your daily routine. To regain that sunny disposition that makes you glow, try going for a long walk, meditate, watch an episode of your favorite comedy and get some vitamin D by catching some rays. Making time to take in a daily dose of happy can go a long way toward your overall well-being.
4. Improve focus
Often millennials have so many interests and things going on that it can be difficult to concentrate on just one. But sometimes you just need to buckle down and focus. At moments like these, try writing out your to-do list, set small goals for the day, doodle and take a minute or two to center yourself before beginning any important task. These tricks have been shown to improve cognitive function and help you concentrate over longer periods of time.
5. Support immunity
Physical wellness starts by taking care of your immune system. That means getting good sleep, drinking enough water, exercising regularly and making sure to maintain a healthy diet. For added support on days when you need to be in tip-top shape, consider Go Shield from n* by Nutrilite. These gummies are made with a blend of vitamin C, zinc and elderberry, a centuries-old berry with immunity-supporting compounds.
By following these simple tips, you will not only help support your general wellness, but set yourself up to #slaytheday and crush whatever goals you set for yourself.
