Reflexology is just the start!
Although we may expound the the importance of reflexology above all other kinds of holistic treatments, its important to know that the body is more than just the soles of your feet and the palms of your hands.
True happiness and inner satisfaction does not simply arise out of the alignment of the right kinds of treatments. Our bodies are more than just an ever growing list of defective body parts that need to be fixed]. The mind and the physical body need to be in-sync in order for you to be at peace.
So, other than enrolling in a series of Reflexology sessions, here’s a few other suggestions on how you can lead a rich and healthy life:
Treat Your Skin Well
Your skin is the largest organ on your body – so you should look after it!
Psychologically, human beings are naturally self-conscious of the quality of their skin. In both Eastern and Western cultures, the preservation of the skin’s condition, through the use of various cremes and masks, is seen as a paramount responsibility, especially so to women. Although one person could feasibly rack up a monthly cosmetics bill of hundreds, if not thousands, you don’t really need to spend a fortune on cosmetics in order to see the effects.
Luckily, the best products can be sources from Asia, where you will incidentally find the best value for money. Online shops, such as My Scheming, sell well-known Asian skin care brands at a low cost. The products are proven and rigidly tested, there also plenty of reviews online.
Drink Plenty Of Water
Going hand in hand with looking after your skin, the amount of water that a single person drinks everyday has an incredible impact on the smoothness of their skin, in addition to their overall well-being.
The amount of water that you’re recommended to be drinking varies greatly from different governments. In the USA, you’re told to drink a little under 2 litres each day, whereas the UK government recommends only 1.2 litres.
Whilst we can’t give you an absolute guide on how much you should drink – a glass per hour should be enough, as long as you’re staying relatively inactive. If you’re moving about a bit more, then consider upping this recommendation.
Take Part In Varied Exercise
Variety is the spice of life and there’s nothing better than applying this rule to the world of exercise.
Although you may think that going on two runs a week is keeping you in the best shape possible, it’s been proven that mixing up the kind of exercise that you take part in will result in your fitness improving quicker. Maybe take out one of those runs and replace them with a gym session or consider taking up a new sport that engages other muscle groups of your body.
Our bodies are incredibly adaptable. Continue on the same exercise schedule and you risk not only boring your body, but you might also find that your fitness plateaus. By keeping your exercise pattern varied you can constantly challenge your body to respond in different ways, so you can continue to make progress.
Enjoy The Great Outdoors
In the 21st Century, this is possibly the most crucially ignored of all the above tips.
Thanks to the development of jobs that are asking us to spend even more time indoors and under fluorescent tubes, the average man is now getting much less sunlight, hence Vitamin D, than we should be getting. Vitamin D is absolutely vital to our development as human beings. It gives us energy, it boosts our mood and it defends us against harmful viruses.
Getting out in the sun can often be easier said than done, especially in the UK. It’s all about picking your moments. Whether it’s a lunch break or spare 20 minutes in the morning, find a time when you can get outside and you’ll feel much better for it.
