Self-care is the complex process of taking care of your emotional, mental and physical well-being, a process that includes not only exercise, but a healthy diet as well. Here are some diet tips that you should incorporate into your self-care routine:
- Have breakfast – the first meal of the day is the most important, it is the meal that will get you started and will give you the energy to go through your day. A healthy breakfast is a balanced meal that contains proteins, fibers and carbs as well and ideally, it is consumed in a calm, stress-free environment in about an hour after getting up;
- Reduce trans-fats in your diet – trans fatty acids are found in many deep-fried foods and snacks and they are known to be extremely harmful for your health, therefore they should be avoided as much as possible;
- Include superfoods into your diet – bananas, fatty fish, goji berries and apples are just a few examples of the ingredients that can super-charge your energy levels and boost your health;
- Hydrate properly – plain water, herbal teas and freshly squeezed fruit juices are the beverages that you should use for clenching your thirst and that you should consume even when you don’t feel thirsty.
Self care processes may also require the services of professional healthcare practitioners as well. If you are interested in regenerative medical services, contact Downtown’s Healthcare for excellent care.
