Posted 48 days ago ago by Marcea

A New Year means new resolutions. Making changes doesn’t have to be hard – there are lots of little things you can do to make your life healthier. Here are five tips to get you started: 

 


Organize Your Space

According to Shape Magazine making your home and office space neater can reduce stress, improve relationships and help with productivity. Get started with an organizer lamp such as the Craft Space Organizer, 13w Craft Organizer or the LED Desk Space Organizer to help get your office or work table in order. 






Relax and De-Stress

Stress is a part of life but if you don’t learn how to manage it, stress can become harmful.WebMD   says that 43% of adults “suffer adverse health effects from stress” and stress can cause headaches or other heath issues. Activities like deep breathing, yoga, meditation or other relaxing activities can help to relieve stress and possibly improve your health. 


 



Maintain Eye Health

Dr. Marc Gannon OD, FAAO recently gave us tips for healthier eyes. One simple tip he gave was to eat your vitamins. “Lutein is very important,” said Dr. Gannon. “Goji berries and blueberries both are full of antioxidants and Vitamin A and fish oil (are great for the eyes)” 

Another way to keep your eyes healthy is to use an OttLite lamp. The added benefit of having a balance of contrast and color that helps you see details clearly? Less harsh glare, distortion and fatigue! 

 


Get Some Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep has a variety of health benefits including helping with memory and helping to reduce inflammation. Need some help getting that good night sleep? The Wake Up Your Way Light & Alarm helps drift you off to sleep with a music and light selection available in 10, 20 or 30-minute intervals. In the morning you can wake up gradually with your own personalized sound profile to help ease into the day.
