A good night sleep and a helathy morning routine is what I work on constantly.

The body replaces itself with a new set of cells every seven to ten years. This has been discovered by Swedish molecular biologist, Dr. Jonas Frisen.
When it comes to aging, our DNAs remain the same from the day of a cell's birth throughout its lifespan, however, most new atoms are taken in through the air we breathe, the food we consume, and the liquids we intake.
It is the feeling that your brain just won't function properly. People will describe it as brain fog. You can't concentrate, and simple tasks take too long. You find that the things you could do in a short time in the morning now take forever.
Mental fatigue can be acute or chronic. Acute fatigue can be relieved after a short period of rest. If allowed to continue, it can become chronic fatigue and eventually lead to burnout.
A chronotype is what a person's sleep cycle calls under, whether they're a night owl, an early bird, or somewhere in between.
One's chronotype is determined by a combination of nature and nurture. Respectively, one's genes determine whether one prefers to be awake late at night or early in the morning; whereas nurture is how we choose our lifestyle.
Being in a bad place mentally is extremely difficult when going through it alone, however, the good thing about the modern world is it offers three main sources for solace:
Another day has passed and it's time to wind yourself down again. Meditation changes our state of mind. It can energize you, soothe calmness into you, or even both. It allows our bodies to become present in the moment.
If meditation isn't for you, there are other ways to sooth yourself like the box-breathing method, or yoga.
Certain people, such as athletes, may require more than the minimum recommendation of 0.8g per kilo of bodyweight. The problem is that when we think more protein is better, we don't know when to stop. This fixation with protein can ultimately become a form of an eating disorder.
Adding extra protein beyond our needs tends to shorten our lifespan. It can also harm people with underlying kidney or liver problems.
In our culture, there's this idea that going through a disaster can be good for you and make you stronger.
After experiencing loss or trauma, people usually report feeling a greater appreciation for life, closer relationships; they feel stronger, more spiritual and more inspired.
A food craving can be described as an intense and sometimes uncontrollable desire for a specific food. This desire can leave a person unsatisfied until they have tasted that particular food.
New research suggests it may be possible to turn off the pleasure feelings we experience from eating specific foods, reducing cravings.
