5 Tips to Improve Your Health and Wellness

By Paisley Hansen

July 14 2021 - Improving your health and wellness can profoundly positively affect your life and the lives of the people around you, like your friends, family, community, and coworkers. When you are healthier, your interactions with others are improved. Although it can seem overwhelming and difficult to do so, there are many small steps you can take to be healthier and feel better. You do not have to do every single thing every day and completely change how you live your life to improve your overall well-being; there are several small things that you can incorporate into your life to make it better.

1. Improve your commute

If you work outside of your home, you have to spend time each day commuting to your workplace. You may drive through traffic or take public transportation. Sometimes, your commute can be arduous and negatively affect your mood. There are some things you can do to improve your commute and your overall wellness. One of the things you can do is use the time you commute to do something you enjoy, whether it's listening to an audiobook, catching up with a friend or family member, or listening to your favorite album. Consider only doing these mood-boosting activities while you commute so that it gives you something to look forward to. If your workplace is not too far away, you can ride your bike or walk to work, which gives you a chance to get fresh air and exercise, two other things that can improve your health.

2. Improve your job

Although finding a new job can be a big change and can take a lot of time, the positive effects of a new job may allow you to really improve your health and wellness. People who change jobs report feeling less stressed, sleeping better and having better relationships with their loved ones. Thanks to technology, finding new opportunities on job sites can be easy. For example, if you live in Spokane and have the necessary skills to be a court reporter, you can search court reporters Spokane and see if there are any open positions. If you live in Boston and can work as a teacher, you can search for teachers in Boston.

3. Improve your sleep

Improving your sleep can make a big difference in your overall health and well-being. Individuals who sleep between seven and nine hours each night have better moods, better immune systems and better memory. Going to bed a little earlier each night can keep you healthier. Getting quality sleep involves more than just sleeping enough hours though; you want to try to limit screen time before going to bed and sleep in a cool, dark room. These things do not take a lot of effort to do and can improve your sleep and therefore, your overall health.

4. Improve your nutrition

There are a lot of diets and programs that exist in order to improve your health. If you do not have the time, energy or money at the current moment to follow one of these diets or programs, you can still improve your health. Making small changes, such as eating one or two more servings of fruits and vegetables each day, can have big outcomes.

Other small changes you can make are drinking more water and consuming less caffeine. Drinking more water can improve your energy and help you lose weight. Consuming less caffeine can lessen your anxiety and lower your blood pressure.

5. Improve your exercise routine

If you complete vigorous exercise every day, yet don't feel that your athletic performance is improving, you may actually benefit from exercising slightly less. Exercising too much can cause your body to feel a lot of physical stress, which may feel like actual stress to you. If you rarely exercise, exercising just a few times a week can improve your health immensely. Exercise may be taking a 20 minute walk, dancing to some of your favorite songs, or riding your bike with your family.
