Your physical and mental health go hand in hand. If you’re able to give care to one aspect of your health, the other is often more likely to follow suit. Good physical health leads to good mental health and vice versa.
Here are five tips to stay healthy both mentally and physically:
Make healthier choices
You may have heard the expression; eating right is smart, and eating right can make you smart. What that means is eating the right foods gives your brain the nutritional support to help perform at its highest level. For example, Vitamin K is rich in brain-health nutrients. At Beyond Juicery + Eatery, our Hummus + Beet is a salad base of kale, which is high in Vitamin K. Try our Hummus + Beet salad to fuel your body up before a long day at work or a tough workout.
Get up and move
As we all know, exercise is good for the body, but it’s also great for the mind. A good workout obviously works the muscles and burns fat, but it also produces endorphins, which are essential for producing good moods. That’s why so many people get addicted to exercise, simply because it makes them happy! After a workout, how you take care of your body post-workout matters too.
At Beyond Juicery + Eatery, you can add a protein powder to any smoothie, which would support muscle recovery. Try our vanilla whey, chocolate whey, vegan protein, or collagen after your next workout.
On the other side of the spectrum, it’s also imperative that you give your body and mind time for rest. Rest includes both sleep and relaxation. For your physical health, rest allows your muscles to recuperate. For mental health, rest gives your mind a break from everyday stressors. Rest overall gives your body the time to rebuild, better equipping it to take on everyday challenges.
On your next rest and recovery day, consider trying our Zen Bowl. The Zen Bowl has quinoa, which is a complete protein. Complete proteins are essential for the structure of your muscle, and a rest day would be the perfect day to have a warm, soothing bowl.
Practicing meditation may help you manage stress and high blood pressure to feel calmer and more peaceful. Studies show that meditation can modestly lower blood pressure, positively affecting the cardiovascular system. Meanwhile, meditation helps you manage stress, key to improving overall mental wellness.
Unwind and relax before you meditate with our powerful juice, Pepper + Poise. Our Pepper + Poise is rich in antioxidants that may reduce stress and inflammation, which is just what you need before meditating.
