Celebrating National Wellness Month

August is National Wellness Month, a time to focus on self-care, healthy routines and stress management. At Concord Healthcare, our team encourages residents to take a holistic approach to wellness. While every day should be a wellness day, we could all use a reminder now and then
to keep our health at the forefront.

Here are some simple self-care tips to help you stay healthy and relaxed:

  • Drink lots of water, especially during the hot summer months. The Mayo Clinic recommends women drink 2.7 liters of fluids and men drink 3.7 liters of fluids per day.
  • Exercise regularly and take the time to stretch!
  • Spend time outdoors, which can improve memory, fight depression and lower blood pressure, among other benefits.
  • Focus on enjoying nutritious, healthy meals and reducing sugar, caffeine, sodium and excess fat from your diet.
  • Meditate and practice deep breathing to help you relax.
  • Focus on your sleep routine – getting enough sleep is crucial to your wellbeing.
