August is National Wellness Month which is the perfect time to start creating healthy habits to take care of yourself, whether it’s big or small. Senior Helpers supports individuals to focus on self-care, stress management, and the promotion of healthy routines. There are many negative effects of choosing to disregard wellness, like high blood pressure, anxiety, and compromised immunity.

National Wellness Month was founded in 2018 to promote community, connection, and commerce within the wellness industry. It was created to inspire people to focus on their wellbeing while also having a platform to access influential wellness brands.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Also, only one in three adults receives the recommended amount of physical activity each week. There are many ways to help promote healthy habits in your lifestyle.

Some things to do this month to promote better health and wellness are:

  • Add more fruits and vegetables to meals
  • Schedule a checkup or annual physical
  • Start your day with a morning stretch
  • Exercise, meditate or do yoga regularly
  • Drink more water to prevent constipation and eliminate toxins
  • Slow down and relax to prevent stress
  • Go outside to enjoy the weather and get fresh air
  • Start journaling and reflect on positive events

There are many things to do this August to help encourage happiness and a healthy lifestyle. These activities can even help with pain management and recovery from injuries. National Wellness Month is the perfect start to take charge of unhealthy habits and make a difference in your life for the better. It only takes one step to start the journey of healthy living.
