Combining Exercise, Diet and Massage for a Healthy Lifestyle

When we think about wellness and health, it can be difficult to focus on more than one thing at a time, but keeping healthy often means taking a more holistic view of how you take care of yourself; for example, lack of sleep has been connected to weight gain in some studies. We’d like to give you some tips on how to make sure diet, exercise and massage regimens all work together.

Try more protein and less carbs:

Cutting down on simple sugars is a healthy dietary choice and high protein diet is important for building muscle mass. Protein and complex carbs from whole grains will give you a steady source of energy without having to rely on bursts from sugar.

Eat about half an hour before exercising

Waiting half an hour to exercise after you eat will give your digestive system enough time to get started and the blood will start diffusing back to the rest of your body, which avoids cramping.

Take a rest

Proper muscle rest can be an important part of any exercise routine. Using massage as part of your resting routine can help improve your flexibility and performance.

Recovery

A good massage after a workout can help keep aches and stiffness from setting in. Keeping your muscles more relaxed will also help improve your quality of movement and the body awareness you acquire after frequent massages will give you a better indication of how your exercise is affecting different muscle groups.

Although it can be a challenge, you can keep up with all the most important aspects of your health and wellness regime. All it takes is a little bit of planning and forethought to make it work. Once you form good habits, you will see the positive effects.
