Walk Your Way to Better Health

 To maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity, five days a week is recommended for adults and at least 60 minutes every day for children. But did you know that only around a third of people in Britain achieve these minimum recommended levels? This inactivity is a key factor in the dramatic growth of obesity, which will continue to rise unless something is done about it! This is why awareness of the benefits of walking is so important.

The aim of May’s National Walking Month is “to show children and adults how easy, enjoyable and rewarding walking is and how it can lead to real changes in people’s habits and lifestyles.”

Benefits of Walking

  • Boosts endorphins easing stress, tension, anger, fatigue and confusion in ten minutes
  • Improves heart health by increasing heart rate and circulation
  • Reduces the risk of coronary heart disease and strokes – inactive and unfit people have double the risk of dying from CHD
  • Improves flexibility and strength of joints, muscles and bones
  • Reduces the risk of Type 2 diabetes
  • Builds bone mass, reducing the risk of osteoporosis
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Boosts the immune system by halving odds of catching a cold
  • Reduces the risk of certain cancers such as; colon, breast and lung
  • Engages arms, shoulders, abdominal, and leg muscles

Just think only 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week can make you healthier and happier, and it is one of the easiest activities you can work into your daily routine! You can walk pretty much anywhere, it’s free and all you have to do is step outside your door and choose a destination or let your feet lead the way. Sometimes the best part of walking is discovering hidden trails that you might have missed were you in a car. Need some ideas;

  • Walk to the shops if you’ve just run out of milk.
  • Get off the bus 1 or 2 stops early, or walk to the next stop instead of waiting for the bus!
  • Enjoy nature! Go for a walk with your dog either to the park or to explore the green spaces around your house.
  • Take a break! During your lunch hour go for a walk in the area around your work. Make it a social thing and invite your colleagues.
  • Encourage walking at a young age! Have your child walk to school, if they are not old enough to walk by themselves join them, then you’ll be keeping active too!
  • Take the stairs instead of taking the lift.

Remember

  • Make sure you’re wearing comfortable shoes. Try CardioStrides®, weighted fitness shoes which help amplify muscle toning.
  • A few thin layers are better than one thick layer of clothing. This way you can take layers off as you start to warm up.
  • In the winter wear a hat and gloves. Your arms will get more work if they swing by your side then in your coat pocket.
  • Take some water along with you in a PiMag® Sport Bottle. Which is reusable and refillable, a better economic and environmental option than bottled water!

Whether it is to the shops, to work, or just to see friends – the important thing is to get out there and get walking! Let us know where you like to walk by posting on our Facebook page or tweeting to us @NikkenEurope!

Are you maintaining a Healthy Body?

“Striving to improve or maintain physical wellness is an integral part of living. Nikken’s focus is nutrition, exercise, restful sleep and freedom from discomfort, and its products are based on addressing these issues of everyday modern living.”

Over the forthcoming months we’re going to be writing 5 additional monthly blogs based on each area of Nikken’s 5 Pillars of Health philosophy. Today we’ll be starting with Healthy Body.

Your physical wellbeing is important so; Are you maintaining a healthy body? We’ve outlined a checklist of areas to take note of when looking at your personal fitness and wellbeing.

 

Nutrition and Eating Well

Are you feeling low, tired or stressed? If so, you could be running low on vital nutrients. A balanced diet helps, but alone these can be inadequate in providing your body with the level of nutrients that it really needs. Nikken’s products can provide that extra boost, in addition to a wholesome diet.

Kasai® Multi-Vitamin and Mineral for example, offers a wealth of essential minerals and vitamins – all in one tub!

A lack of Vitamin D can lead to back, leg and hip pain and, according to a recent survey, more than half of the adult population have insufficient levels of this Vitamin (Daily Mail Research, 2011).

Vitamin D is important for a healthy immune system as well as bone growth and the absorption of calcium – that is where OstoDenx® and CalDenx™ come in. Together, these food supplements are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to healthy bones and teeth!

Also, if you’re feeling a little irritable, your magnesium levels could be low. This deficiency can lead to feelings of anxiety and worry. Magnesium helps to maintain those healthy bones and gives us a boost of energy from our food. Try CalDenx™ with a diet that includes spinach, almonds and wholemeal bread; these are great sources of magnesium.

Our bodies are complex and need taking care of. Therefore there are many things to consider when thinking about our nutrition and it may not be necessary to take everything, but just to give certain problem areas a boost with nutritional supplements, in addition to a balanced and healthy diet.

Be good to your body and it’ll be good to you!

 

Exercising and Keeping Fit

We all know that it can be difficult to include more physical activity into our busy lives and sometimes we see it as a chore. However, with the right exercise plan, mental attitude and supportive fitness products, keeping fit doesn’t have to be taxing.

Every little bit of exercise counts; whether it be a quicker stroll or a day out cycling with the family, you’re helping your personal fitness, having fun and enjoying quality time with loved ones at the same time! Anything that gets your heart beat racing is benefiting your fitness levels.

In addition to exercising buddies, it is also important to find the perfect exercising equipment to motivate and support you. Having the right trainers that are kind to your feet and help keep them well ventilated will create stress-free exercise. Wouldn’t it be great if you could burn up to 20% more energy with every step you take by lining your trainers with CardioStrides®?

 

Sleeping and Relaxing

Are you someone who likes to ensure they have enough sleep every night? If so, you are someone who is making a great choice for a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is a vital part of this and it’s just as important as exercising and eating the right foods. Sleep helps us function properly and if we don’t get enough sleep, it will have adverse effects on the body.

Nikken has a variety of solutions, designed to help you de-stress, re-charge and escape the daily pressures of life. The Naturest Sleep Solution is a dream combination of products which have helped many people to improve their night’s sleep. You’ll wake up feeling refreshed, alert and ready to face the day ahead.

Winding down and relaxing at the end of the day will help you sleep better too. A back massage is an ideal way to lose any tension in your muscles; the stimulating MagCreator® will help you do just that and help you get off to sleep…Zzzz!

 

Re-energising and Rejuvenating

Do you suffer with achy bones and strained joints? Maybe magnetic technology may be something you might want to consider. It is often used to relieve joint pains, aches and strains and the use of this for health goes back centuries.

Magnetic and far-infrared technology can be found in many of our products. It may sound very scientific (which it is) but our jewellery products are a great option, creating an elegant look in addition to gaining the real health benefits of this technology.

There’s nothing more energising and refreshing as clean purified water and fresh air. These can make us feel alert, awake and full of energy. We should be drinking up to 8 glasses of water a day to avoid dehydration which makes us feel slow, headachy and tired. How much water have you had today?

Eat well, keep active, relax and re-energise for total wellness.
