Lifestyle includes movement, stress management, sleep, daily habits and self-care.

Daily movement is essential for wellbeing and includes sport or organised recreation, and incidental activities (e.g. gardening or walking/cycling). It helps us live longer, prevent and manage many chronic diseases, build and maintain healthy bones and joints, and feel better about ourselves. Although age affects the amount of activity needed, remember to break up long periods of sitting or lying down with movement.

Lack of sleep can cause poor concentration, mood changes, poor judgement, slower response times and reduced coordination. Babies and children need more sleep, but from young adulthood most of us need 7–9 hours of sleep daily. Getting enough restorative sleep can be a challenge, especially for shift workers, parents and teenagers. An effective sleep hygiene routine is often key to a good night’s sleep, so you feel rested and energised on waking.

Including rest and relaxation for the body and mind to recharge and repair can be easily ignored in our busy lives and “do more” culture, potentially leading to fatigue and burn out. Giving ourselves permission for self-care is often our last priority. Connecting with our inner selves and nature helps us keep balance, reflect and restore.

 Cloud9 Naturopathy can help you find the right intensity and type of movement for you, create an enjoyable and practical sleep hygiene routine, and support creativity and balance in your liestyle.
