When you hear the word “nourishment,” you probably picture the food pyramid your seventh grade health teacher had taped up to the classroom wall. Or maybe the “Got Milk” campaign from the ‘90s. But as an adult looking at their well-being from a holistic perspective, there’s a lot more to nourishment than what your health teacher might have mentioned.  Have a look at our top tips for a happy mind and body and see where you can make a positive change.  

1. FUELIN’ IT

At the risk of sounding like your mom, don’t forget your vitamins! Your sugar-coated Flintstone vitamins have (hopefully) gone the way of your old stuffed animals by now (but hey, if not, you do you!). If you haven’t already, it’s time to find a replacement. The whole vitamin thing can be confusing as there are a ton of options and it’s definitely not a one size fits all category. But the effects are real. Think of your vitamin intake as the core foundation upon which you can build your healthy home. . Lately we’ve been loving the personalized recommendations from Care/Of — they’ll create custom daily vitamin packs based on an intake quiz and your lifestyle, so you can get those nutrients without even having to think about it.

2. TRAIN YOUR BRAIN

Never be bored! Your brain might not technically be a muscle, but it behaves like one, so make sure it’s getting its exercise. Challenge yourself and your mind to learn something new. Studies show that learning new skills helps to improve your memory and combats the not-as-fun effects of aging down the line. Take a knitting class, learn a new language (we know a thing or two about that), learn how to use a film camera, or build your computer skills! Sites like General Assembly offer online courses on coding, design, business, and more. Spend a couple hours learning HTML in the comfort of your own home!

 

3. WALK IT OUT

Not everyone has the luxury to walk to work, but that’s all right! . Even walking for 30 minutes a day can have serious benefits for your health. That doesn’t mean you need to sign up to walk a marathon — 30 minutes is perfectly doable peppered throughout your day or all at once.. Venture out on foot for a coffee or your lunch break, or walk around your neighborhood as the sun is setting. If you’re seriously cramped for time, just swap out the elevator for the stairs! Audrey Hepburn used to say that the majority of her exercise came from walking up staircases. If it’s good enough for Audrey, it’s good enough for us.

4. SWITCH GEARS

Staying active year-round is important for not just your physical health, but your mental health too. There’s a ton of advice (and fads) out there, but one thing that almost all professional trainers seem to agree on is that keeping your body on its toes by changing up your routine at least every few weeks is essential. We’re creatures of habit, so it’s even more important that you fight through the plateau.  Lately we’ve been trying a ton of different group fitness classes. Working out with other people can be a whole lot more fun than working out on your own. Try a class at a group studio like Flywheelwhere the mega-social environment makes you forget you are even doing exercise. Don’t forget to stay hydrated!

5.INVEST IN YOUR REST

After all that biking, walking, learning and eating, you may need to take a load off. Getting a good night’s sleep is paramount to your holistic nourishment. Make bedtime an event. Light a good-smelling candle, put on some peaceful music, get some blackout curtains or a noise machine if you want and just settle in. Treat yourself to a mattress that will let you sleep soundly all night long, because you deserve it. We love the one at Casper, and they’ll give you 100 nights of sleep as a trial period, so you can see for yourself. Put away your cellphone and computer — we’ve all heard about the detriments of screen time before bed, and pick up that book you’ve been wanting to start. Rest and repeat!
