The past few years have been tough on everyone, and for most of us our health has been challenging at times. With so much stress and uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to take care of yourself and make sure you’re as healthy as possible.
This is often easier said than done. With work, family, and social obligations, it can be tough to find time to focus on health. But if you want to make the rest of 2022 your healthiest year yet, it’s important to find ways to fit self-care into your busy schedule.
Here are a few common (but super important) tips to help you get started:
Eat A Healthy Diet
This is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. Focus on eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. And, limit unhealthy foods such as processed meats, sugary drinks, and refined carbs.
One study that included over 100,000 participants tells us that eating 10% more ultra-processed foods was associated with above a 10% increase in the risks of cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, and cerebrovascular disorders.*†
Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep each night. But with work, family, and social obligations, it can be tough to get enough shut-eye. If you’re having trouble sleeping, there are a few things you can do to help:*†
- Create a sleep schedule and stick to it as much as possible. Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day, even on weekends.
- Establish a bedtime routine to help you wind down before sleep. This might include reading, taking a bath, or even stretching.
- Keep your bedroom dark, quiet, and cool.
- Supplements: Our Sleep Health contains clinically proven ingredients shown to help support falling asleep and staying asleep plus promoting nighttime calmness and relaxation*
Increase Your Physical Activity
Proper exercise is super important for overall health. It can help improve your mood, boost your energy levels, and protect against chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes.
At a minimum, you should aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise at least 2-3 days a week. (Disclaimer: You should always consult your doctor before beginning any new exercise routine.)*
Manage Your Stress Levels
Stress can take a serious toll on your health if it’s not managed properly. To help reduce stress, make time for relaxation and hobbies you enjoy, get regular exercise, and stick to a healthy diet.*
Take Care of Your Vision
Many men overlook the importance of eye health. But it’s crucial to have regular eye exams, especially as you age. Schedule regular checkups. Even if you feel healthy, it’s important to see your doctor for routine checkups.
Proper nutrition is critical to maintaining healthy eyes. Our Vision Health is a comprehensive formula with clinically-proven ingredients shown to help support overall vision health plus help improve Night Vision, promote the Macula and Lenses and help with Eye Strain & Reduce Glare.*
Take Care of Your Bladder
Men are at a higher risk for bladder problems such as urinary incontinence and prostate issues.*†
Our Bladder Health formula contains Urox® – a proprietary blend of clinically-proven herbal plant ingredients combined with pumpkin seed extract and PACran®, which may help to support muscle tone and ease the discomfort associated with overactive frequency and urgency in both men and women.*
Keep Your Memory Sharp!
As you age, it’s normal to start forgetting things from time to time. But there are things you can do to help keep your memory sharp. Exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and challenge your brain with activities like puzzles and crosswords.
Certain vitamins and minerals have been clinically proven to help support memory and would make a fantastic addition to the recommended lifestyle habits above. Our Memory Health contains multi-targeted ingredients to help support brain health, concentration, mental clarity & mood.*
