National Wellness Month
August is National Wellness Month, which focuses on self-care, managing stress, and promoting healthy routines.
Research has shown self-care helps manage stress and promotes happiness. Whether you challenge yourself to a new yoga pose or try a new walking route, make a small change and impact your health in positive ways.
There are numerous ways to make those small changes, too.
- Increase your water intake.
- Add more fruits and veggies to your meals.
- Monitor your sleep and make adjustments for better sleep habits
- Join a yoga, walking, or aerobics class.
- Learn to meditate.
These small steps can lead to many more healthy habits in your lifestyle.
