6 Ways To Make you Feel Better
Your brain works really hard to keep you feeling optimal and 'balanced' each day. There are many factors that allow your brain to function at its best but here are 6 ways to feel better each day. Hint: it is all about consistency.
Improve your workstation design
Your daily posture + how much you move + visual input = will determine how well your equilibrium is calibrated.
If your equilibrium is “off” between these systems, your brain may get confused messages and cause symptoms such as vertigo, imbalance, brain fog, fatigue, headaches, neck pain and motion sensitivities.
Success With Sleep
When you have a vestibular disorder, rest and rejuvenation are imperative to managing your symptoms and can improve the quality of your life. In fact, improving your sleep habits may be all it takes to feel more optimal each day.
Dietary Do's & Don'ts
What you put into your body each day provides your brain with fuel and energy. Skipping meals, dehydration and certain foods could trigger imbalance and vertigo.
Here are some resources to reduce your vestibular symptoms and boost your brain's productivity.
