7 Easy Steps to More Holistic Health

At Realm of Caring, we believe that taking simple, natural steps toward a healthier lifestyle can have a massive impact on your overall quality of life. While holistic methods should not replace medical care, they can work in tandem to make traditional treatments even more effective and help you get the relief you need. 


Cannabis is just one tool in your toolbox. Here are 7 steps you can take toward a happier, healthier life.


  • Better nutrition


It’s easy to balk at the thought of trying to eat healthier. After all, throwing together a sandwich or warming up a microwaveable meal are a lot quicker than traditional cooking! Thankfully, there are plenty of simple ways to spruce up your diet. Try swapping out white or refined bread for whole grain, practice eating your healthy greens first so that you don’t get too full, and set goals to drink more water each day. 

  • Quality sleep


Does quality sleep seem like a thing of the past, exclusive to the preschool nap times of bygone years? It doesn’t have to be! In order to promote more restful sleep, limit activities like exercise, work, and alcohol consumption to earlier in the day. Instead, opt for relaxing activities like taking a warm bath, reading a book, or even watching television, as these can help your body wind down and prepare for a quality night of sleep. 

  • Supplements


It might seem obvious, but taking the right daily vitamins and supplements can really boost your health. 42% of the U.S. are deficient in Vitamin D, despite it being one of the most important vitamins for bone health and immune system support. Vitamin D can often be found in supplements also containing Omega-3 fatty acids, which is another nutrient commonly lacking in Western diets. 

  • Daily exercise


Finding an exercise routine that works for you can be time-consuming, and often people fall out of the habit after only a week or two of trying to get in shape. But exercise doesn’t have to mean an hour at the gym each morning, or a long jog outdoors. Simple changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or doing leg lifts and other easy exercises while watching TV can make a difference. If harsh weather is getting in the way, try walking laps at your nearest indoor mall. 

  • Meditation


Meditation is one of the simplest and easiest ways to help your body de-stress, and it can be done from the comfort of your home whenever you please. Just turn on some relaxing music and let your stress slip away. If you’re new to meditation, try a guided meditation video on YouTube. There are countless options, so you’re sure to find something to suit your needs. 

  • Yoga and stretching


Practicing yoga offers both physical and mental benefits, making it one of the most powerful tools in your holistic health arsenal! Benefits range from weight loss to improved energy and respiratory health to better sleep! It’s no wonder yoga has become such a popular practice. Many locations offer free classes to seniors or beginners. Find yoga classes near you. 

  • And lastly, cannabis


There are countless ways you can incorporate cannabis into your holistic health routine, so you’re sure to find something that works for you. Register at our website for access to countless resources on CBD, medical marijuana, and more.
