Did you know that seven out of eight Americans are metabolically unhealthy? That is an alarming amount. Even though someone appears healthy on the outside does not mean they are as healthy on the inside. Metabolic health is extremely important in immune strength and overall well-being. So whether your importance lies in overall health or maybe revving up that immune system for the winter months to come… here are 5 simple ways to improve your metabolic health this winter.
It is important to prioritize strength over simply trying to lose weight. This doesn’t mean just through weight lifting but strengthening your commitment to nutrition, hydration, sleep, and stress management are as equally important, too. Try doing something small each day that go towards the bigger strength goal.
Be Physically Active
If you are someone that doesn’t like the idea of 20 minutes a day, then think of it a different day. Liking aiming for at least 150 minutes of exercise each week. Evenly, split each day that is 20 minutes a day, but you can do 30 min one day, 10 minutes another, 40 minutes another day, etc. Make sure you love what you are doing so that you will stick with it. Make sure you get that heart rate up and don’t forget your strength goal.
Aim to stay hydrated with 9 to 12 cups of healthy fluids per day. Our SUPER POWDER is a great way to get in some of those cups as well as taking in some great vitamins and minerals into your body as well. Like 1,000 mg of Vitamin C, and 100% daily value or more of Vitamin D, B3, B6, B12, folate, zinc, selenium, copper, and chromium.
This might seem like an odd one, but we are encouraging you to use tech in a healthy way. Like using apps to track your water intake. Or using a an app to hold you accountable to keep yourself active each day. Or even using your phone to stay connected with those around you. The winter can he hard with the shorter days, but try not to hibernate and isolate too much, reach out to friends and family to stay connected.
Just Say No
And last but not least, keep those vices out of the house. If you are craving something that bad then you will be willing to go seek it out, but just because it is at home within arms reach does not mean you need to consume it. If you keep your vices away chances are you will consume them less which can lead to better health.
