How to have a healthy mind in a healthy body

In our hectic society, we sometimes forget to take time for ourselves. This is essential, however, for a healthy and positive mindset. And that’s exactly the secret of successful people. Because they work hard, they also take good care of their mental and physical well-being.

The simple tips below will also help you to find this well-deserved time and space for yourself. For a start, the Renson terrace canopy will provide you with the perfect place to relax at home.

1. Enjoy nature

The number one welfare problem? Stress. From a recent study by the University of Exeter, it appears that being outdoors in nature for two hours a week is linked to good health and increased well-being. So make sure that you can enjoy your garden all year round. This is possible with a terrace canopy with a heating element or a built-in fireplace. Beautiful plants not only make it cosier, but they also provide extra oxygen and purify the air.

2. Eat healthy

The right nutrition has a positive impact on your physical and mental well-being. Use fresh ingredients in as many dishes as possible. Why not cook cosily in your outdoor kitchen while your guests enjoy an aperitif?

3. Exercise enough and enjoy it

Due to stress and deadlines, we often prefer to relax in a comfy chair in the evening. Enough exercise is essential to keep a healthy mind, however. Create your own exercising space at home. You don’t need much: take your yoga mat outside, look for an inspiring workout video on YouTube, or ask a personal trainer for support. Or how about an exercise bike under your garden canopy? You can enjoy the view and the fresh outdoor air. Do you prefer things to be more discreet? Garden partitions help you to create spaces to isolate yourself.


4. Take time to make plans and to reflect

What is the secret of successful people? They take time to relax and to reflect on their work. Did you have a busy day? Have a seat on your terrace and reflect on what went well and what could be improved. In the meantime, prepare a to-do list and schedule to start the next day with a fresh mind. And don’t forget: every mistake offers a learning opportunity. Be sure to take your 15 minutes a day to adjust your schedule and to dream about the next success.

5. Surround yourself with friends

Research from the University of North Carolina shows that a good social network is important for our health. As it turns out, people live longer if they have more social contacts. These moments with friends are therefore not only fun, they are also important to feel good. So invite your friends for a relaxing evening on the terrace!
