The fundamental pillars of self care tend to be the most important considerations to keep up on. Namely, eating good, nutritious food (and not too much or too little), working out to the extent your body can handle and recover from it. Finally, sleeping reliably with enough hours each night. Do that, and you’ll gain a massive boost to your mental health. Feel more capable, look better, age more slowly, and get into a decent enough life routine.

But is that all there is to focus on? After all, while these three pillars are essential, they don’t really talk about specific healthcare needs. Nor expand on exactly how our bodies will improve because of that.

We thought it appropriate to talk about three more additional considerations that will take only a little more time for you to manage, and that will benefit you more completely. Especially if you have specific needs that remain unaddressed.


Stretching Always Helps

As we get older it’s easy for our flexibility to become tighter and less supple. This can be a real problem as we get older. As we all know that strength, but also flexibility, can help us support ourselves more easily. Doing so can prevent us from injuring ourselves by accident. Stretching doesn’t have to feel uncomfortable either. With resistance bands or isometric exercises, taking care of it after your regular workouts becomes easy. It will also help you become more familiar with your body, as awareness of your limitations will help you know what to work on.


Bone & Joint Health 

It’s important to note that our bodies are hardly living in a binary state, either “fit” or “not fit”. Your health and well-being can depend on several factors. Factors such as age, any conditions you’re managing, and of course, the actual structure of our bodies themselves. For example, working on exercises that improve our bone and joint health can be ideal, especially if using these health tips. Fortifying that with nutrition (such as getting healthy sources of calcium and omega-3) can be wonderful. This is especially true as we get older and having that extra support is ideal. Being realistic about your needs and prioritizing them can help you avoid the “one size fits all” approach to fitness and personal well-being development.


Emotional Wellbeing

Self care is almost always going to improve your emotional well-being. However, that doesn’t mean it resolves the issue and prevents any problems from ever occurring again. Maybe you’re dealing with grief, or sorrow, or frustration, or confusion in life. It’s good to address these emotions instead of running from them or assuming you’re lesser for having them. Doing so could even help you feel a little more proactive about their well-being. In the long run, this could provide the kind of value you’ve been looking for.

With this advice, you’re certain to eat well, work out, and sleep. But you’ll also do more, and feel better as a result.
