Do you ever feel like you’re 50+ years older than you actually are? As though your body is screaming at you to slow down and sit in the armchair for the rest of the day? There are some people who seem to breeze through life without an ache or pain, or even so much as a minor illness. But then there are those of us that have been suffering in many ways since puberty. One minute you’re flying high, the next you’re hit with a ton of changes for your body to go through, and it only seems to go downhill from there. So, if you do feel like your body is packing in on you at the minute, there’s a few things that we know that can help. You want your body to feel as good as it possibly can do, so keep on reading to find out more!
You Get Out What You Put In
This is the most important thing to remember with anything that you’re doing in life, you really do get out what you put in. If you’re always being a positive and optimistic person, life is going to go better for you. The same goes with the foods you put into your body. The better you eat, the easier it’s going to be for you to feel good. Your body will have all of the fuel it needs to function properly. You might not feel as fatigued and drained, or as prone to injury. But we know how hard it can be to eat a good diet and actually stick to it. So, rather than focusing on putting so much pressure on yourself, try simply eating well 80% of the time. Allow the other moments to be snacks and treats each day, to get you through the day.
Go The Extra Mile
If your body is going through a troubled time at the minute it might be better to ask for help. Sometimes those aches and pains that simply aren’t going away need more attention. A simple trip to a chiropractor can solve many issues where aches and pains are concerned. It’s better than trying to fill your body with pain killers that are only harming your body more and offering a temporary solution. You could also think about other holistic therapies, such as practicing yoga in your own home. This stretches the body and leaves endorphins flowing that make us feel great. All of a sudden you might not be as tight as you were!
Take Some Time
Finally, you need to take some time to rest and recover. It doesn’t matter whether you work out or not, if you feel like your body is packing in on you it could be because of a burnout. This happens when you’re constantly running in overdrive all of the time. Your body and body can’t cope with the stress, so you start to fatigue more, suffer from headaches, and even IBS. Always take some time to relax. Whether that be getting in the bath, reading a book, or sitting down on your own for just five minutes.
