Amwaj Polyclinic: Top 4 Recommendations For A Healthy Start (2021)
If there is anything that 2020 has taught us, it is that most of our New Year’s resolutions fail, this was true before Covid-19 but is even more evident now. That is why at Amwaj Polyclinic, we suggest not to put too much pressure on yourself and provide you with these easy steps guaranteed to reach your wellness goals.
Re-boot, re-charge, and energize for a new start in 2021 – treat yourself and your body to a healthier year!
1. ‘Tis the season to be kind to yourself
It is time to be patient with yourself and ditch the guilt and shame associated with weight loss because the fact of the matter is that well-being and weight loss go hand in hand. If you can achieve a healthier lifestyle and de-stress your mind, your body will be more susceptible to weight control measures.
Take the pressure off by setting long-term goals and make those healthier choices a lifestyle rather than a short-term fix. Our bodies change with time and sometimes what used to work is not right for us anymore, there could be a hormone imbalance or lack of specific vitamins holding you back – if so, it is an easy fix. Visit our clinic for a health check-up that could help you plan and adjust your diet, exercise, and supplement intake to easily reach your goals this year!
2. Reassess your fitness goals.
Exercise is one pillar of a healthier lifestyle, but there is no one-size-fits-all, and sometimes we need to reassess what works for our bodies, schedules, and minds –find an activity that you enjoy! If you hate running but force yourself to do so, you are more likely to give up on your fitness plan than if you were doing something that makes you happy and healthy at the same time. If you enjoy playing tennis or long walks, then focus on that, it will be much easier to stick to your plan and achieve your goals if you have a good time doing it!
When it comes to fitness, goals will vary depending on different factors, the intensity, pace, and type of exercise needs to match your age, gender, and other health conditions. When planning a new exercise regime, it can be a good idea to check your vitals, to know how to best train your body, having your blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked is a good start.
3. Nutrition and Hydration.
We have all heard the expression “you are what you eat” and probably raised an eyebrow then moved on right? Nevertheless, when it comes to feeling good, having more energy, and reaching your wellness goals, this saying is true! If you eat healthy, energy-boosting foods and hydrate properly, your mind and body will thank you later and most likely give you the results you are looking for.
New Year’s resolutions about eating better require a little planning, because changing your habits and making it fit your busy schedule can be tricky. A health coach can help you set up a plan that will suit your lifestyle and make it easier for you to add in those healthy choices without breaking the bank or messing up your schedule. If you are venturing it on your own, consider increasing fiber, adding more fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy proteins, and lowering the total calorie intake daily. Adding nutritional supplements to a healthy diet can boost your immune system and give you more energy overall!
TIP: Shop for fresh food and make smaller shopping rounds. Processed foods with long shelf lives tend to be the unhealthy choice, and so to avoid overthinking your grocery shopping – head to the fresh food section for fruit, veggies, fish, or meat and you cannot go wrong!
Don’t forget hydration! A fantastic way to stay hydrated, boost your immune system, and restore vitamin levels is IV therapy. This treatment allows for your body to absorb 100% of the goodness, prevent illness and hair loss and even brighten up your skin, for more information on this and similar treatments contact us now!
4. Get Enough Sleep
Sleep is our body’s way to heal and recover. Common concerns related to sleep are whether you are getting enough sleep or waking up throughout the night. Inadequate or insufficient sleep can slow the metabolism, increase calorie storage as fat, increase appetite, and make it more challenging to make healthy food choices. The amount of sleep we need is individual; some function well on six to eight hours a night; others need more or less. Identifying your sleep patterns and getting professional advice on managing this could significantly affect your wellness results.
