How to Keep Your Mental + Physical Health Intact

How to Keep Your Mental + Physical Health Intact

Being healthy means more than taking care of your body. Overall health and wellness includes mental and physical health. Some activities overlap to benefit both, but it’s necessary to take time to nurture each. Here are some tips to help make your entire health a priority. 




Stress takes a toll on the body. Meditation can help to reduce stress and anxiety. Specifically, mindfulness meditation. This is something you can do fifteen minutes at the start and end of your day. You simply take deep, purposeful breaths and stay mindful in the moment. Don’t think about the past nor worry about the future. 

Go Outside

This is sometimes known as “Green Therapy.” Although it’s winter, this doesn’t mean you can’t step outside for a few minutes. The fresh air and quiet solace can be just what you need to mentally reset. A folding walker is easy to take with you anywhere if you need a little assistance getting out and enjoying some fresh air. 

Be Open 

Do you have something on your mind that you just can’t let go of? Talking to a loved one or a healthcare professional about your feelings and frustrations is cathartic. Even if you tend to be a more reserved person, simply having a pleasant conversation with the cashier at the grocery store may be just what you need to lift your spirits.


Helping others helps to give meaning to one’s life. Volunteering at a capacity that fits your schedule and abilities will vary from person to person. Relieve your worries and focus on making someone else’s day better. It’s a great feeling!




Yoga is great for the mind and body. It’s a stress reducer and endorphin booster. It enables you to stretch and strengthen muscles in a way that can help protect your body from injury. 

Get Quality Sleep

Sleep is so important for overall well-being. Not sleeping the recommended 7-9 hours a night can increase the risk for heart disease, diabetes and depression. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day. If bedtime is somewhat of a stressful time for you, consider some bed accessories to make it easier. 

Move Your Body

Move your body for thirty minutes each day. It doesn’t need to be an intense cardio exercise, but getting your body moving in some way, whether it’s cleaning the house or going for a walk is great for your heart.

Fill Up on Nutrition

Your body can only output what you put into it. If you want to feel strong mentally and physically, fuel your body with food that will give you energy. This means nutritious foods like leafy greens, lean protein and whole grains. Consider taking Vitamin D throughout the winter, as many people are Vitamin D deficient.
