Are you tired of the same old wellness tips? We are too! So, to keep things interesting, we searched for the most surprising wellness advice we could find. Here’s what we came up with:
Laugh at least once a day!
Have you laughed yet today? If not, it’s time to watch a funny animal video or anything that tickles your funny bone because laughter is one of the healthiest activities you can do for yourself. Laughing does it all – boosting blood flow, reducing stress hormones, relaxing your muscles, lowering your risk for disease, boosting immune function and mood, and so much more.
Drink H2O to boost your metabolism.
Yes, plain old water is clinically proven to speed your metabolism by 30%! Study participants who drank 2ml of water (2 cups) demonstrated a faster metabolic rate for up to an hour. Water also provides a heaping load of other health benefits, from helping your body flush out toxins, keeping your skin springy and hydrated, maintaining organ function and much more.
Sit on a kegel throne to improve bladder leaks!
By “kegel throne,” we mean Emsella™, a groundbreaking non-invasive treatment for urinary incontinence which we proudly provide here at Skin Care Institute. FDA-cleared Emsella treatments help women live a higher quality of life. Emsella looks like a special chair, which you sit on, fully-clothed. All you have to do is sit and relax while the chair emits electromagnetic energy, stimulating thousands of kegel-like muscle contractions on your pelvic floor. While you sit, Emsella is literally strengthening your pelvic floor, helping to improve bladder leaks.
Eat more dark chocolate.
We know you know that dark chocolate is healthy. But did you know it contains more antioxidants than blueberries or acai berries? Dark chocolate has flavanols, which are bursting with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and are clinically associated with a lower risk of disease. The trick is to eat the darkest chocolate you can enjoy (at least 70%). The higher the cocoa content, the more antioxidants you’ll get. Be careful not to overindulge, though. Chocolate has calories, which add up quickly.
Listening to music is clinically shown to improve your mood, reduce stress, ease pain, sharpen your memory and basically benefit your overall wellbeing. And when you sing along, you are boosting your immunity and longevity, the experts say.
