Whether you’re watching Youtube, checking in on social media, or watching TV, it seems everyone is talking about lifestyle and wellness. From Instagram influencers like Lily Pebbles to advice icons like Ellen, wherever you turn, there is advice on how to change your lifestyle for the better and how to be happier and healthier.
While making big, drastic changes works for some people, most of us find that making small changes to our daily routines is the best way to achieve results. Small changes are easier to adopt, follow and maintain than big, life-altering modifications. Here are just a few of the small changes you can make in your life to feel better day by day.
Spice up Your Coffee
Rather than putting cream and sugar in your morning coffee, try a pinch of cinnamon powder instead. Not only does cinnamon have much fewer calories than cream and sugar, but it also has a number of important health benefits.
A study published in Diabetes Care reports that adding 1 to 3 grams of cinnamon into your daily consumption can reduce triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein (also known as LDL or bad cholesterol) and can help drop total cholesterol levels in in those diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Cinnamon also relieves congestion, reduces joint and muscle stiffness and discomfort, and can even boost brain function, so next time you grab your morning Venti, say no to sugar and yes to cinnamon.
Enjoy Spa-Level Skin Care at Home
Everyone enjoys a trip to the spa, and skin care is an important part of anyone’s daily regimen. However, the stress of expensive trips to overpriced spas can become its own problem. Instead, consider at-home skincare devices that help you achieve the same results for a fraction of the price.
With PostMates replacing local restaurants, and Netflix replacing the cinema as people’s preferred weekend entertainment, it was only a matter of time before consumers had the option to experience spa level skin care at home, too.
The right at-home skin care devices can solve a number of issues. Whether your problem is unwanted hair, acne, or cellulite, Silk’n has a solution for you thanks to a range of convenient hand-held devices that use the same technology found in dermatology clinics.
When shopping for the right device for your lifestyle, make sure to look for products that provide high-quality, spa-level treatments such as those that offer Silhouette Light therapy to help you combat cellulite and reshape your body, making it leaner and tighter.
Products like these not only help women look their best but also combat major health issues and boost daily confidence levels.
Most of us experience a tremendous amount of stress in our day to day, and as that stress builds up, we may not even realize how run down it can make us feel. Ask any medical health professional and they’ll tell you that stretching is an effective way to combat stress.
While you can fork out hundreds per month for yoga classes, the best part about stretching is that it can be done almost anywhere — whether you work from home or in an office setting.
Here’s an easy neck stretch to get you started.
- Stand with your knees vent slightly, or sit up straight in a chair
- Drop your chin to your chest.
- Fold your hands on the back of head and gently push down until you feel a slight pull
- Hold this pose for 20 to 30 seconds, and repeat 2-5 times daily
Follow these simple lifestyle adjustments and you’ll notice considerable changes in how you look and feel. Small changes like these can have a large and lasting impact on your health and confidence levels, and once you start feeling better, its easy to stick to a new you.
