Summer has well and truly arrived in New Zealand (although some days it may not feel like it)! So why not take the opportunity to focus on yourself this summer? In this months blog, we’ll be running through a few things to think about to make sure you get the most out of this summer! Plus, you’ll get the latest on what Ocean & Green has been up to!
Our top tips for self-care:
Make sure you exercise regularly. Aside from boosting your mood and energy, regular exercise will also combat health conditions such as high blood pressure and obesity. Win-win!
Stay hydrated. Drinking water can increase clarity in your mind, and regulate body temperature. Dehydration on the other hand can lead to constipation and kidney stones. Carry a drink bottle or set reminders throughout the day to ensure you’re getting enough water!
Getting enough sleep is vital, yet its something we often compromise on. It enables your body to repair and replenish yourself, and can prevent a variety of health conditions. Taking one of our Marine Collagen Supplements before bed can increase the depth and quality of your sleep, as it contains the amino acid glycine which regulates body temperature and increases serotonin.
Make sure you’re getting the vitamins you need. Vitamins can work wonders for the entire body, supporting everything from the immune system to bone health to repairing cell damage. Our Seaweed Supplements are a great source of over 50 essential vitamins and minerals, all in one capsule!
Spend time with friends and family. It’s been a tough year and we’ve all learnt how valuable that quality time is! Make the most of it.
Don’t stress! If you’re struggling, take things one day at a time. Reaching out to someone can really help to reduce the load.
There you have it! The smallest of lifestyle changes can make a big difference to your overall health. There’s no better time than the present to bring some self-care into your daily routine.
