Healthy You, Ethnic Beauty
As an Ethnic Beauty, you don't just concentrate on your outer beauty, your inner beauty is just as important. At the beginning of every New Year, you make goals and plans to keep them. Most of them are unrealistic, so if you don't quite get there, you make it ok in your mind. But what if your health depended on you keeping your goals, would you reconsider your approach?
If you keep it simple and try not to do 50 things in 2 days or lose 20 pounds in 3 days, you'll be a healthier you and with a lot less pressure. So where do you begin?
Let's take a look at some of the things that make for a healthier ethnic beauty:
Exercise tops the list. Did you know that when you exercise your brain benefits from the activity? After you get your body in motion, your mood gets better, you sleep better and you lessen stress, tension, depression and anxiety.
So how about a little salsa class tonight or a swim tomorrow morning? And if you don't like either one, a nice walk in the park or your neighborhood will also do the trick.
Keep in mind that it's important to focus on heart health, toning and strength, balance and flexibility when exercising.
A lack of physical activity can increase the risk of blood clots, high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke. So 30 minutes a day can possibly offset the risk.
Keeping Flexible and Maintaining Balance - Did you know that you don't stop exercising because you age but that you age because you don't exercise. Don't want to do jumping jacks or go to spinning class, try Tai Chi or Yoga. These forms of exercise will stretch tired muscles and give flexibility to your body.
Have a Nutrition Plan - Eating healthy will do more than keep you slim and trim. A diet rich in dark leafy greens is important to keeping your eyes healthy. You can also reduce your risk of diabetes and other conditions that might lead to vision loss just by eating properly.
Don't forget to hydrate your body by taking in water. You don't want to drown your organs out but you do want to take in enough for proper hydration.
While we're looking at nutrition and eating well, don't forget to take care of your mouth. Brush, rinse and floss after each meal. This will keep your gums healthy and your smile bright.
Get a Healthy You program in place for yourself and enjoy your life.
