A Healthier You In 2013Written by Quimby House Inn & Spa
One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to be healthier. But this does not just mean losing weight. In fact, there are many components to your health and weight loss is just one of the benefits to living a healthy lifestyle. To help you get an idea of all that goes into true health, here is a list of some things that you can do in 2013 to be a healthier you!
Eating clean - Although fad diets always seem to make the headlines, the most important aspect of healthy eating is eating clean. Choose foods that are fresh, natural and organic and grown locally if possible. According to many health professionals, by avoiding chemicals and artificial ingredients in food, you will reduce your risk of many diseases and other side effects (such as weight gain) from processed foods.
Exercising - Exercise not only helps us lose weight but it also strengthens the body including our muscles, heart, organs and immune system. Find a way to sweat it out each day whether it’s at the gym and lifting weights, running, walking, biking, yoga or swimming.
Spa treatments - You may not associate the spa with being a way to stay healthy but massage therapy offers benefits that not everyone may know about. Massage has been known to help relieve and cure headaches, insomnia, depression, stress, back pain, muscle pain and joint pain. So, don’t forget to book your next massage so that you can live a healthier lifestyle in 2013!
Getaway - Don’t forget that just as important as hitting the gym is taking a vacation. By getting away from our normal routine of life, we will return feeling rejuvenated and ready to refocus! Whether it’s a long weekend or several days, a getaway is important to maintaining long term health and happiness.
