If you have been worried about all the nasty germs and illnesses that have been going around as of late then you will be wanting to make sure you are fit and well. This doesn’t just mean physically well, it also means being emotionally and mentally well. If you don’t look after your mental health then you can expect your immunity and other aspects of health to suffer. The same applies to your physical health, if you fail to look after it then your mental health could take a hit. Take a look below to find out how to look after both.


One of the first things to mention here is exercise. Making sure you look after your physical health is paramount to your wellbeing. Doing at least 45 minutes of exercise each day means you will be less at risk of developing weight-related issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and strokes. If you are not sure where to begin, think of something you enjoy. There is nothing worse than working out and not enjoying it because it feels too much like exercise. You might find that you enjoy swimming, this is a great exercise as you are completely weightless in the water but working every single muscle group.


Diet goes hand in hand with exercise, you can’t really have one without the other. If you are dieting you won’t reach your full potential just by watching what you eat, exercise also helps. There are many fad diets out there and if you follow them for some time and then forget all about them it could be disastrous to your body. You may have heard of yo-yo dieting,  this is when you start a diet and then go off plan repeatedly. Doing this could mean you put on more weight than you lose.

All you really need to do is watch what you eat and ensure you are aware of your calorie intake. Your calorie intake will vary depending on your gender, age, and weight. You should be aiming to include all the main food groups into your diet, these include carbohydrates, fats, proteins, dairy, fruits, and vegetables. If you are not sure about the right foods to eat or portion size then a visit to a nutritionist will sort this for you.


If you find yourself getting ill continuously then your body may be lacking in vital vitamins and nutrients. These vitamins are what your body uses to function and work day to day. One of the more common ones to lack in is iron, this can happen if you don’t eat enough fruit and veg. There are things you can do to overcome these illnesses and heighten your immunity.

This is where you are hooked up to an IV that will give you a quick boost of everything you need to feel better and more yourself.
