Living the Good Life: 3 Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Mind and Body in 2022

It’s safe to say that in 2022, we’ve had many factors occur over the last few years that have given way to a higher amount of stress. And with all the stressors that can come along in life, this makes it all the more important to maintain quality health.

The building blocks of health begin with proper nutrition. But within our busy lives, even this is difficult to keep in check. However, there are many simple ways that you can gain adequate nutrition, even while on the go.

Aside from nutrition, we also have to ensure that our minds and bodies are kept functioning well. Because without this unique connection, it becomes harder to function on a day to day basis. But with the proper lifestyle changes, you can aid your health in many ways.

In the following, we’ll explore a few tips for maintaining a healthy mind and body even for the busiest among us in 2022. 

Minerals & Antioxidants 

As mentioned, with our lives being so busy in the modern world, the poor food choices we make can make it hard to maintain a proper nutritional balance. And with many people working and eating on the go, poor food choices can make it difficult to acquite essential nutrients. 

If you’re one who needs a little help supporting your health and nutrition, supplements of minerals and antioxidants can help promote a health-friendly lifestyle. 

Minerals and antioxidant supplements can help your body to promote and nourish optimal cell growth and renewal. And with antioxidants, you also get a few added benefits as well.

A few benefits of antioxidants are:

  • Protect cells against free radicals 
  • Supports health and well-being
  • Supports healthy aging 
  • Supports brain health
  • Supports muscle and bone health 

Most of the antioxidants and minerals we get come from plants, fruits, and vegetables. However, if you’re unable to eat from these food groups on a regular basis, taking mineral and antioxidant supplements can work to support your nutritional needs.

Benefits of Yoga

Yoga has been around for thousands of years, being developed as a fundamental part of spiritual practices in eastern religions, primarily Hinduism. However, it’s only been within the last few decades that yoga has become a popular exercise regimen within the western world.

While yoga is often associated with exercise regimens, the practice is uniquely tied to both the mind and body and enables you to forge a connection between both. In fact, many in-depth studies on yoga practitioners have found that those who practice yoga faithfully often have less stress in their lives, among other benefits. 

A few additional benefits of yoga include:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Promotes muscle strength and tone
  • Promotes improved respiration 
  • Supports a balanced metabolism 
  • Supports circulatory health 

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to sit in a class to engage in yoga. In fact, there are many online tutorials and basic poses that you can begin practicing on your own, with very little instruction. And each pose leads to more advanced poses, all of which offer specific benefits to your mind and body.

Regular Meditation 

Like yoga, a form of meditation in itself, regular meditation exercises have been found by many experts to offer you the benefit of mental focus and clarity. And the best part is that simple meditation exercises can be performed in as little as 15 minutes a day. 

Meditation is another practice that was born in the eastern part of the world and is an essential practice belonging to many religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism among several others. And you don’t have to sit in the lotus position for several hours a day to reap the benefits of daily meditation.

For example, simply walking or sitting meditations can be performed simply by focusing the mind on the steps you take, or on the breath as it flows in and out of your lungs. And by focusing your attention and clearing the mind of clattering thoughts, you’re able to achieve a more peaceful state. 

Meditation has also been known to help promote concentration, lower blood pressure, and increase mental agility. And in the busy world, we all live in today, taking at least 15 minutes a day to quietly meditate can work to support a health-friendly lifestyle.

It’s no secret that the western lifestyle is quite busy and many likely don’t find the adequate time to work on their health. But by consciously adopting health-friendly practices, you can work to support your health and begin living a fuller life.
