How to Improve Your Appearance and Health in 2021

Last year, some people saw lockdowns and social distancing as an opportunity to stay home and focus on their health. However, after a few months, most were ready to give up and sink into the couch with a bottle of wine and last night’s leftovers. With nowhere to go and no friends to see, everyone seemed to give up on their bikini bodies and gain a few pandemic pounds instead.

Now, with summer right around the corner, some states are beginning to lift lockdowns and even mask mandates, the idea of seeing friends and maybe even hitting the dating scene are very real possibilities.

If you’re ready to change out of those sweatpants and improve your appearance and health in 2021, these tips may help.

Move Your Body

One of the best ways to boost your mental and physical health, slim down and feel good is to move your body. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that adults engage in at least 150 minutes of aerobic activity and two hours of muscle-strengthening exercises each week. However, you can choose what kind of physical activity that entails. Whether you enjoy yoga, running, biking or P90X, whatever gets you up and moving will do.

Visit the Spa

If protests, the pandemic and a harrowing presidential election put a few more wrinkles on your face last year, visit a Medspa for skincare treatments, massages and total relaxation. Spa professionals can recommend treatments and work out some of the knots and wrinkles from this year and last. Plus, feeling and looking your best might inspire you to reprioritize your overall health.

Try Intermittent Fasting

Most diets don’t work because they limit which foods you can eat and leave you craving unhealthy ones. However, intermittent fasting is all about when you eat. This plan switches between fasting and eating to manage weight and burn fat. As long as you maintain a relatively healthy diet during meals, IF can improve both your appearance and your health. Talk to your doctor to determine if this plan is right for you before hopping on board.

Drink More Water

Proper hydration is crucial to maintaining your overall health and wellbeing. However, more than half of U.S. adults don’t drink enough water because they get too busy and forget. Stop making excuses and prevent hydration by keeping a water bottle with you at all times. Drink a glass before each meal and as soon as you wake up to automatically increase your intake. After a few days of consistent hydration, you’ll notice that you feel and look better.

Get Better Sleep

Most people know that getting seven to eight hours of sleep each night is important for feeling their best the next day. However, many don’t realize that getting enough shuteye can boost heart health, improve energy, regulate blood sugar, enhance your focus. So shut off the TV, put down your phone and get that beauty sleep.

Feel Better, Live Better

These tips may seem simple, but incorporating them into your everyday life might take some practice. Find exercises, foods and healthy habits that work for you and try to stick with them. With a little dedication and a new perspective, you can improve your appearance and your health in 2021.
