In our health-obsessed culture, it seems everyone is looking for the shortcut to looking and feeling younger. Whether you're trying to get back to an ideal weight, reach an athletic goal or just look younger than your age, there are a few simple, mindful changes you can make in your everyday life to naturally help slow and minimize the effects of aging.
It is now widely known that chronic stress is bad for our health, but did you know that it can cause accelerated cellular aging? The "fight or flight" response induced in the body when you are under constant stress can lead to increased blood pressure and higher levels of cortisol and skin and digestive issues, making you look and feel older. Good news: just a few minutes of mindful breathe and meditation each day can have a significant impact on overall stress management. Everyone can find a few extra minutes in the day!
You've probably heard "sitting is the new smoking". Another enemy of maintaining youth is constant digital exposure. As much as technology makes our lives easier, helps us stay connected and more informed, it can also have a negative impact on our health and well-being when engaged with it excessively. Working extended days at computers causes us to become be sedentary much of the week, which comes with a host of health issues from weight gain to anxiety - not exactly the stuff of youth. Unplug and reset regularly - P.S. we know just the place to do this!
There's a reason they call it Beauty Sleep! For years studies have shown that lack of sleep and an inconsistent sleep schedule can affect mood, memory and cognitive performance, but it can also show up physically on your face and body. Lack of hydration and decreased Human Growth Hormone or HGH produced during normal sleeping hours, leave skin dull, dry and prone to premature aging. Sleep deprivation also takes a toll on your hormones, metabolism and cardiovascular system; not to mention telltale puffy eyes and dark circles. Sleep is an important part of your productivity and health; make it a priority!
While we can't turn back the clock here at MIZU, we can help you facilitate mindful habits to help unplug, relax and restore mentally and physically. MIZU's luxury Floatation Therapy pods are the ideal environment for stress relief, deep relaxation and meditation, pressure relief on joints and muscles and improved sleep. There is no way to avoid the aging effects of everyday life and stress, but regular Floatation Therapy can help you age mindfully.

HERB OF THE MONTH: Ginger
Ginger, the "root" or the rhizome, of the plant of the plant Zingiber Officinale, has been a popular spice and herbal medicine for thousands of years. It has a long history of use in Asian and Indian herbal traditions.
The active components of the ginger root are volatile oils and phenol compounds, such as gingerols and shogaols. These powerful compounds give Ginger its medicinal properties. Clinical studies indicate ginger can help reduce symptoms of nausea due to motion sickness, improve digestion, and can even aid pregnancy related nausea.
Stop by today or visit us online to purchase MIZU's artisanal "Wellness" and "Immunity" blends which contain Ginger and other fine botanicals.
