Self care is the proactive practice of looking after your mind and body to assist with a better quality of life. At Live Well Health Essentials we’re passionate about doing all we can to enable quality of lifestyle. We do this primarily through the products we bring to market to help with self care and body maintenance.
Self care refers to the actions and practices individuals take in order to take care of their physical, mental, and emotional well-being. This can include things like exercise, healthy eating, getting enough sleep, practicing mindfulness, and seeking support from friends and family. The goal of self care is to promote overall health and well-being, and to prevent burnout and stress.
Self care can help prevent injuries and ailments by promoting overall physical and mental health, which can make the body and mind more resilient to stress and strain. For example, regular exercise can help maintain muscle and bone strength, improve cardiovascular health, and reduce the risk of chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Eating a healthy diet can provide the body with the nutrients it needs to function properly and stay strong. Getting enough sleep can help the body recover from physical and mental exertion, and can improve mood, focus, and cognitive function. Practicing mindfulness and stress-reduction techniques can help individuals manage stress more effectively, which can lower the risk of conditions such as hypertension and depression. By taking care of themselves in these ways, individuals may be less likely to experience injuries or illnesses, and may be better able to recover if they do.
Live Well Health Essentials range of complementary health care products can be great to help you achieve self care. From being able to wind down and recover from exercise with hot and cold therapy to stocking up your first aid kit and protecting yourself from snakes when having fun bushwalking and camping, we have quality products to help you take care of yourself.
To help with your body maintenance, we believe It is a good idea to try and establish some sort of regular body maintenance routine based on what works well for your body. It might be stretching, it might be foam rolling, yoga, Pilates, swimming or running or even a combination of these or other activities. The key to it working successfully is to get professional support through your GP or allied health professional on what will work best for you. Once you’ve established what it is you want and or need to do, follow through with the plan.
If you spend extended periods of time sitting down doing this such as work, travelling, binge watching netflix, then your body will begin to adapt to the position it is doing repeatedly. This can cause you to gradually become stiffer in your hips, lower back, ankles and knees.
Think of your body maintenance routine as reversing the effects of sitting down all day.
Live Well Health Essentials products are designed to become a part of your every day proactive self care regime to enable quality of life.
