Why Are Routines Necessary for Well-Being?
Consistency and frequency are integral factors for improving your well-being. By establishing healthy habits through routines, you can help automate positive behaviors despite a busy schedule, making them feel more sustainable over a lifetime of practice. Additionally, routines create structure and predictability, fostering a sense of stability that can positively impact your outlook on life.
Creating a Holistic Wellness Approach
Your commitment to your wellness should include a healthy diet, regular exercise, restful recovery and stress-relieving activities. These specific practices support your physical and emotional well-being and contribute to improved cognitive clarity.
Diet & Nutrient Absorption
A well-balanced diet is a cornerstone of good health. Medical researchers in the UK found that adult men and women can add an average of 9 years to their lives when switching from an unhealthy diet to a healthy diet, based on 465,000 participants following the UK government's Eatwell guide published in 2016.
Beyond making healthy food choices, optimizing nutrient absorption and hydration is crucial. IV Drips can deliver 100% nutrient absorption directly into the bloodstream for essential vitamins and minerals, compared to 15%-20% absorption from consuming food alone. IV Drips can be particularly beneficial for individuals with specific goals for nutrition, hydration, immunity, energy or those looking to boost their overall wellness.
Exercise & Recovery
A healthy lifestyle requires regular physical activity. A 2022 study by the American Heart Association which surveyed 116,221 participants, found that adults who worked out about 150 to 299 minutes per week had 21% to 23% lower all-cause mortality, 27% to 33% lower cardiovascular mortality and 19% lower non-cardiovascular mortality over 30 years.
However, recovery is equally important. Overtraining can lead to fatigue and an increased risk of injury. Integrating recovery practices like Cryotherapy, Red Light Therapy, and Infrared Sauna sessions into your weekly routine can reduce inflammation, aid muscle recovery and enhance overall athletic performance. These cutting-edge therapies have been shown to promote healing by optimizing the body's natural recovery processes.
Adequate, high-quality sleep is one of the most fundamental components of wellness. Ze Wang, PhD, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore said, "There is a lot of literature showing sleep is fundamental to biological and psychological and behavioral processes." The observed effects from a lack of sleep include diminished attention and cognitive processing, memory loss, high blood pressure, increased risk of mental illness, and increased risk for several chronic conditions, including diabetes and heart disease.
Establishing a consistent sleep routine, including a regular bedtime and a relaxing pre-sleep ritual, can improve both the duration and the quality of your sleep and are just some of the many ways you can improve your sleep hygiene.
Chronic stress can negatively impact your physical and mental health, but you can combat stress by incorporating relaxing activities into your daily routine. Some stress-relieving practices include a leisurely walk in nature and deep breathing exercises or meditation. Even choosing certain foods and IV Drip ingredients can help alleviate stress.
