Our lives are busier than ever because there are more demands for our attention than ever before. Carrying your smart devices means your boss, your family and all the world’s news and problems have constant access to you. It’s no surprise finding an overall sense of wellness can seem elusive. We’ve compiled five easy tips to help you tune out the noise and tune into yourself.
It seems simple, right? Well, not necessarily. A recent study showed 80% of Americans don’t get enough water every day. Water is essential for:
Absorption of nutrients
Maintenance of body temperature
Controlling caloric intake
Fighting muscle fatigue
Protecting and hydrating skin
Helping with gut health
Flushing toxins from your body
Start each day by drinking water. It wakes every system in your body, and all the toxins built up overnight can begin to flush. Water isn’t always enough. Consider getting a lymphatic drainage massage with our Ballancer Pro to help reduce overall inflammation and improve your lymphatic system's ability to remove toxins from the body.
2. Get Enough Sleep
During sleep, our bodies repair and rebuild our cells. Your body works to promote healthy brain function and support your overall physical health. Sleep deficiency is linked to chronic health problems like heart and kidney disease, obesity, stroke, and depression.
People cite stress as the number one reason for not getting the quantity or quality of sleep they need. Try our Sunlighten Full Spectrum Sauna. Scientific evidence shows infrared therapy from this sauna helps you maintain healthy levels of cortisol, reducing the “fight or flight” state of constant stress. With consistent use, this sauna can even reduce your blood pressure.
3. Get Active, and Stay Active
It’s easy to put physical activity on the back burner thanks to a demanding work and social life. However, we should resist this urge, because there are too many benefits to ignore:
Reduces chronic illness
Helps manage weight
Prevents diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure
Strengthens bones, muscles, and joints
Boosts positive moods and relaxation
Improves sleep patterns
Our Endermologie by LPG works hand in hand with physical activity to maximize each cell’s potential. This natural and effective mechanical massage treatment activates each cell’s metabolism, smooths cellulite and increases circulation. You work hard for a fit body, so a little help on stubborn areas of fat will encourage you to keep up your good habits.
4. Eat Well
Five minutes a day is all it takes to throw together healthy food. This means you can avoid the trough of junk and processed foods begging for your attention at work. Choose foods high in antioxidants to fight off the daily toxins our bodies encounter from environmental pollutants, from the sun, and from stress.
If your body feels sluggish, it may need help with a toxin flush. M’Lis Contouring Wraps encourage healthy circulation in both the lymphatic and circulatory systems. This not only makes you feel better but can lead to healthy weight loss when combined with your clean eating.
5. Step Away
Put down your phone, turn off your TV, and just be. Sometimes that can be difficult, particularly when you’re trying to accomplish it in your home or workspace. At Atlas Bodyworks’ Wellness Center in Fairfax, we’ve created Club Atlas to help you unwind, get healthy and feel better. Members pay a low monthly fee and receive almost double their money back in wellness benefits.
We believe a small investment in your health will provide transformative results in your overall sense of well-being and quality of life. Call us today or stop by our Fairfax, VA location to start your journey.
