Wildlight and Wellness: Supporting a Better Quality of Life
June 26, 2018
A Foundation for Healthy Living
Living in Florida Lowcountry just feels like it’s good for you. The sun shining in the sky, ideal weather for outdoor exercising and a low-stress environment are all perfect for adopting a healthy lifestyle. Jump on the wellness trend with these easy steps toward a better you.
Your body’s well-being starts with what you put into it. Eating right doesn’t have to be expensive, time-consuming or bland; it just takes some planning ahead and you can treat your family to healthy and delicious meals. Federal dietary guidelines recommend a mix of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, dairy, protein foods like meat, eggs or soy, and oils, while limiting saturated fats, trans fats, and added sugar and sodium.
All work isn’t just dull, it can have detrimental effects to your body, especially if you’re sitting behind a desk for 8+ hours a day. Getting out, getting active and even getting a little silly can be incredibly helpful to break your body out of its routine and keep your lungs, heart and the rest of you in top shape. Whether you prefer biking on trails, walking tree-lined sidewalks or throwing a ball in local green spaces, you can always find somewhere to play.
Focusing on your mind.
It’s not just about physical wellness: your mental well-being is equally important, which is why Wildlight has been built with your mind, well, in mind. Reducing stress through play, exercise and relaxation can help keep your mind at ease. Likewise, attending cultural activities at nearby museums, concerts and festivals can be refreshing and engaging for your brain.
Keeping it all in balance.
Follow these tips for the best health results. Any lifestyle change can help, but a mix of all three will deliver holistic benefits you’ll appreciate for years to come.
