"Easy Adds" for Long-term Wellness
Dear Kosterina Family,
Oftentimes, it can feel like the moment you start to take your health into your own hands it turns into a massive undertaking - so much so, that you end up putting off making any changes. At Kosterina, we are focused on accessible wellness -- and what realistic changes we can make to live a longer, healthier life.
One of our favorite health experts here at Kosterina, Dr. Frank Lipman, recently co-authored a book called The New Rules of Aging Well: A Simple Program for Immune Resilience, Strength and Vitality. Dr. Lipman and his co-author, Danielle Claro, dedicate an entire chapter to something they call "Easy Adds" - or essentially, tiny, everyday habits you can begin to incorporate into your life for optimal wellness. Some of my favorite of his recommendations touting enormous health benefits are:
- Foam rolling every day
- Sweating out toxins in a sauna (yes, please)
- Supplementing with additional magnesium
- Taking a cold rinse after a hot shower
- Jump-starting your circadian rhythm with a few minutes of sunshine every morning.
Admittedly, in my book, taking a cold rinse after a hot shower is NOT an easy add (I simply cannot bring myself to do this even though I know it's good for me!) but I think the rest are easy enough. Our health and longevity truly come down to the small choices we make each day.
