Prevagen Routine Tips
Last week we discussed and broke down the most common myths that revolve around brain health and the brain itself. Since summer is coming to a close, we are going to give 4 basic tips on how you can get your routine back on track after summer comes to an end.
On the flip side, if you don’t have one, these tips can help you create a brand new routine that you just may end up keeping long-term. Here at Prevagen, we’ve given you a few easy tips you can apply to your life to ease you back into your regular routine.
Tip #1 – Start a Sleep and Wake Up Schedule
When you’re trying to re-establish a routine again, pick a certain bedtime and a certain time to wake up.
If summer has you mostly sleeping in and staying up late at night, slowly start to move the time you go to sleep and wake up until you reach the time you need or want. Ideally, you want to get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night.
Tip #2 – Get Back into Motion
Summertime can sometimes have us slip up on keeping our fitness in check. Moving around a little bit will help. If you can’t just jump back into your regular fitness schedule, then start out slowly.
Go for walks instead of, lift lighter weights than normal, and so on. Physical activity gets you feeling energized, improves brain health, and boosts your overall health.
Tip #3 – Make a Weekly Schedule for the Current Week
On the first day of your week, create a schedule. This will help you remember what you have to do for the rest of the week and any events that might be coming up.
Don’t just schedule your important appointments like doctors or obligations, also schedule yourself for some free time. In the first couple of weeks, try not to overwhelm yourself and keep it short and simple until you’re back in the groove of things.
Tip #4 – Remember to Relax and Take Time for Yourself
Like it was mentioned in Tip 3, be sure you are getting some free time for yourself and to relax. Sometimes just getting back into a routine can be stressful and could make it harder to stay on track. If things become off schedule a bit, try not to stress about it and be flexible. Soon enough, things will be back to normal.
Try to remember that this new routine isn’t permanent. Trying it out and seeing how it flows with your life can help you decide on if it’s working or if things need to be changed or even removed completely.
Being flexible will help in getting the routine that will best suit your everyday life when your summer ends. In the meantime, work on getting back to a routine and next week will be bringing you some essential tips that will help you simplify your life.
