Everyone wishes to live a longer life. A long life, however, can be a worthless prize if the quality is compromised because of poor health and a loss of autonomy. Although the loss of mobility is common with aging, there are still some things you can do to support self-sufficiency and maintain your independence now and in the future. Making a few changes in your lifestyle can make a significant difference.
Studies have shown that four destructive behaviors – including drinking too much alcohol, smoking, a poor diet that doesn’t include fruits and vegetables, and lack of exercise – can lead to a shortened life expectancy. Living a holistic lifestyle is healthier than any other style of living. There are several ways to develop a holistic wellness mindset for your wellbeing, even as we all do our best to take care of ourselves and our families during these stressful Covid-19 times.
At Amrit Ocean Resort and Residences, we understand the real importance of upholding a holistic wellness mindset to live each day with purpose. Being strategically nestled along the beautiful Palm Beach Shores of Florida’s Southeast coast and surrounded by expansive oceanfront views, our homes incorporate a unique combination of enriching wellness experiences to nourish the body, mind, and soul.
Staying active is an excellent way of not only keeping our bodies healthy but also improving our overall wellbeing and quality of life. People who are physically active and at a healthy weight live longer than those who aren’t active and are obese. So, keep moving and sit less.
You don’t need to make significant life changes to see the benefits. By building more movement into your day through activities such as brisk walking, swimming or simply completing home chores, you can incorporate more movement into your life, helping you to stay fit and healthy.
Amrit Ocean Luxury Homes are designed and optimized for a healthy and vibrant lifestyle. Residents have access to an inspiring array of fully equipped, state-of-the-art fitness centers, a meditation garden, and yoga terrace, and other exciting amenities that help you feel revitalized and ready to face life’s challenges with a new-found focus. Guests can choose to have a completely customized program to address their individual needs and challenges.
Nutrition has a profound impact on our physical and mental health. With the explosion of fad diets and detox mechanisms over the last few decades, however, the relationship to food for some has become associated with restriction and denial. This approach fuels the idea of food being the enemy, rather than a joyful source of health and nourishment. Conversely, there are people who lack discipline over their food intake, a factor that has contributed to the global obesity epidemic.
If healthy eating is your goal, you must be motivated to seek out nutritional information and dietary advice, on practicing balance and flexibility in your eating. Given the problems of obesity and other illnesses directly linked to unhealthy eating habits, such as heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers, we need to be completely mindful of what we put in our bodies.
At Amrit, we try to instill balance in our guests through an intentional movement to eat clean food sourced locally and allowing them to indulge in all the wonderful flavors food has to offer. Truly, happiness and health are attained when you find balance.
Stress is an inevitable part of life. For many of us, long days at the office, and the stressful situations we encounter each day can get in the way of a healthy lifestyle. Often, especially during the COVID -19 pandemic, we feel out of control emotionally, psychologically, and socially. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut and feel low in energy when you’re following the same routine regularly.
When we face mental health problems, our thinking, mood, and behavior is affected, greatly impacting how we live, how we function in relationships, and how we tackle daily activities. Exercise, good nutrition, quality sleep, and mindfulness are all helpful for both mental health and wellbeing.
There are countless opportunities to reduce or manage stress to promote better mental wellbeing right here at Amrit residences. From cutting-edge meditation studios to calming yoga terraces and opportunities for aromatherapy treatments, guests can relax and decompress from the stresses of everyday life. The heart of the pampering here is the incredible spa wellness center, offering inspired therapies and hydrotherapy options that help you disconnect from all outside chatter and reconnect with yourself.
It is well documented in several surveys that people who have healthy relationships and a strong social support network tend to live longer and respond better to stress. This network can be comprised of close friends, family members, and even colleagues.
Taking the time to develop your social support network or strengthen the healthy relationships you currently have is paramount. Chances for the people you meet at Amrit have the same goals in mind as yourself. It’s not unusual to form friendships that last way beyond the length of the retreat. Support groups can be your source of motivation long after you return home.
Your success in living a nourished and productive life begins with deliberate choices to make positive changes in your life. Take advantage of your stay at Amrit to help you become the best version of yourself – physically, mentally, and spiritually. Get in touch with us to make your reservation!
