Refresh, Restore and Repair Your Health

Jun 01, 2016 04:31AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features Lifestyle, Family Features



When it comes to your overall health, taking simple steps to keep yourself in good shape is key. Regardless of age or physical ability, practicing healthy habits can help improve both your physical and mental states, and lead to a happier, healthier lifestyle.

Whether it’s working a quick, refreshing yoga session into your daily routine, restoring energy with a nutritious snack or repairing your oral health, there are countless things you can do to improve your overall health and wellness. Take a step in the right direction and put your healthfirst with some of these simple tips:

Keep Your Mind Sharp
Research shows that you can keep cognitive function strong with mental stimulation. Completing crossword puzzles, reading or challenging yourself with brain games like Sudoku or Mah Jongg can help boost memory and brain power.

Lower Your Stress Level
Take stress levels seriously. Try managing it by focusing on hobbies or activities you find calming, like reading or listening to music. You can also try practicing relaxation techniques, including meditation and breathing exercises.

Help Repair Your Oral Health
Practicing proper oral hygiene and using the right tools are simple ways to improve your oral health. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice daily for two minutes and flossing daily. Using the Colgate Total Daily Repair regimen is an easy way to ensure you’re taking better control of your oral care. Try Colgate Total Daily Repair Mouthwash, which helps kill bad breath germs while also helping to repair daily damage to teeth, and Colgate Total Daily Repair Toothpaste that helps repair early teeth and gum damage by re-mineralizing weakened enamel and helping prevent gingivitis, while freshening breath and whitening teeth.

Eat a Well-Balanced Diet
Research supports eating a well-balanced diet of vitamin and mineral-rich foods can be beneficial to your health. Opting to cook at home rather than going out to eat is an easy way to maintain those healthy eating habits. You can also try different cooking methods, such as steaming, modifying recipes to reduce sugar, salt and fat, to help manage and sustain your diet changes. You can also supplement a multivitamin if necessary.

Make Time for a Workout
Finding the motivation to hit the gym is the hardest part of working out, said blogger and Colgate Total influencer Kelly Tomlinson of Live Love Texas. Outside of the obvious health benefits of staying in shape, Tomlinson said she feels energized, strong and beautiful after a workout. If you make working out and taking care of yourself a priority, you can feel your best and also help set a good example for your children.

Practice Good Sleeping Habits
The National Sleep Foundation recommends adults get 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Staying on a regular sleep schedule, keeping your sleep environment cool, dark and quiet, and avoiding napping for too long or too late in the day can help you make sure you’re getting the proper amount.

With these simple tips and tricks, you can finally put youfirst, contributing to better overall health. For more information, visit colgatetotal.com/total-benefits/whole-mouth-health/remineralize-teeth.
