5 Things You Can Do Right Now As Part Of Your Wellness Routine

1.Visit an Art Gallery
Give your eyes and your mind something new to absorb. Visit local art galleries often, inquire about upcoming exhibitions and broaden your knowledge about art.
 
2. Go to the Beach
Plan a weekend outing to your favorite sandy shore, enjoy long walks and be sure to get your feet (or entire body) wet!

3. Tame Your Clutter
Make time each week to sort through paperwork — filing, shredding, and recycling. You may feel less scattered and more peaceful.

4. Carry Reusable Grocery Bags
Help yourself and the environment by carrying reusable grocery bags on all shopping excursions.  Some stores offer sturdy bags for 99 cents!

5. Eat More Fiber
Eat both soluble and insoluble fiber daily. Fiber intake for men should average between 30 and 38 grams; for women, 21 to 25 grams daily.
