Easy Easter Guide to Healthy Living

Spring is a perfect time to start thinking about healthy living, before the summer hits and people flock to the beach. In the season of Easter, here is an easy Easter guide to healthy living.

Eat a Healthy Easter Meal

Creating a healthy dish for your Easter celebration is a great way to kick off the spring. Rather than eating a heavy potato dish, filled with cream and butter, try roasting sweet potatoes with carrots and green vegetables. Roasted vegetables are a flavorful side dish that can use a lot of great produce that is in season for the spring.

While it may be tempting to go heavy on the dessert on a holiday, opt for a lighter option. A light and airy strawberry shortcake, made with fresh fruit, is a healthy way to end a meal on a high note. Add a dollop of whipped cream to add extra flavor. Avoid overindulging in heavy desserts such as cheesecake or chocolate pie. After eating all of the fresh vegetables for dinner, you probably won't have room anyway!

Essential Oils

Scent is a powerful sense that can make you feel a range of emotions. Some scents actually have the ability to improve your health. Essential oils can help you to feel relaxed or get a better night's sleep. They can also improve your digestion and complexion. Their health benefits go beyond a calming or pleasant smell.

These oils have a mental, physical, and emotional healing effect. They can be applied directly onto the skin, inhaled, or diffused. These technically are not made of oil, as they do not contain fatty acids. They are a highly concentrated component of a plant. Oils are a healthy treasure because such a large amount of a plant is used to make a small amount of oil.

Using essential oils is a great way to kick off your health during the Easter season. Whether you are looking for ways to relax or to improve your digestion, this is a great place to start.

Get Moving

The sun is out and the air is warm! It is time to get outside and get some exercise. Walking at least 30 minutes a day can benefit your body and help to relax your mind. Try to get as much exercise as possible and don't forget to replace lost fluids with plenty of water. Take a family member out for an Easter walk after dinner to start working off that meal.
