There are no excuses for not keeping up your health, but there MAY be a reason that you aren’t looking your best, and it MIGHT be health related.
What can you do about it?
Get a checkup if you can.
There’s no great substitute for getting to a doctor and wondering why you aren’t looking and feeling your best. There are things like poor and underactive thyroids, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), and allergies that can cause skin problems, overweight issues, and more.
But what are some other general things you can do to look great and feel great? Remember, the better you feel, the better you look! More energy, better sleep, no bags under the eyes…the list goes on!
1. Drink more water. Water keeps you feeling fuller which means eating less. Water is better for cell generation, which means better looking skin. We recommend straight water…nothing added, but if you find it tough, try adding something to water (as a last resort. we know it’s hard to go cold turkey.)
2. Get more sleep. A good nutritionist will tell you that a good night’s sleep helps you lose weight. No kidding. Better sleep also means better skin, better productivity, better at stress management, better at anger management, better at kid management…okay, you get the drift.
3. Night owl? Your body has been up late at night so often, now you cannot fall asleep? Try a sleep aid. Opt for the LEAST amount you need until your body is trained to go to bed and wake up at a certain time, and then you most likely will not need to take a sleep aid anymore. ALWAYS consult a doctor before trying a sleep aid. Everyone reacts differently!
