Meditating can help lower your stress, improve your focus and increase mental clarity.

Sleep plays a crucial role in your physical and mental health. It is in sleep that our bodies heal and repair vital systems, such as blood vessels. Adequate sleep reduces one’s risk of disease and infection and helps maintain a healthy weight and mindset. Adults should aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night. To improve your snooze, make sure that your sleep space is as dark and quiet as possible, additionally, avoid blue light from screens for at least an hour before bed.
Proper posture improves spine health. Sitting and standing with the proper alignment improves blood flow, promotes nerve health and supports muscles. Back and neck pain are often the result of using incorrect posture. Try to be mindful throughout your daily activities to avoid leaning forward or hunching your shoulders; remember to move regularly and take frequent, short breaks from sitting.
It is important to note that sometimes poor posture is the result of inflexible or weakened muscles. These weakened muscles also restrict range of motion. A weak core can cause slouching and slumping. Strong muscles are essential to supporting your body.
