Skin Care: Skin thins are we age or are in a recovery.  Drinking water can help “plump” the skin and make it less dry as well as the use of quality skin barrier lotions.   Be sure to watch your skin for signs of change.  Skin breakdowns can be caught early; talk to your Doctor about their plan of action.

 

Drink Water as recommended by your PhyscianDehydration and impaction are major and preventable problems.

 

 

 

Move your Body: Exercise assists with balance, mobility, flexibilty and increased serotoin in the brain.

 

 

 

Eat Healthy: Healthy skin needs protein to be strong.  Be sure to limit processed foods and eat fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

 

 

Laughter.  Keep positive as it has been shown to make a positive difference on your physical health and emotional well being.

 

 

 

Breathe deeply and relax your body.   Breathe in “happy”…blow out “stress”. Sleep soundly be at ease….not dis-ease.  Let your body rest and heal.
