Health and Medical Grants for Well-Being

Maintaining good health is crucial to living a long and happy life. Thankfully, GrantWatch has some helpful advice and a list of grants in our directory. In fact, there are close to 2,000 grants listed in the special category of Health and Medical grant listings!

According to Harvard Health Publishing, a combination of eating well, exercising, and quality sleep help you maintain a good mind, heart, and body connection. It takes diligence to maintain health and well-being. However, it’s also possible to overlook some things. Here is a short list of important points we might sometimes overlook.

Stop the Stress

Embrace your inner calm to keep your stress to a minimum. It’s really important to carve out time for self-care. We might even feel guilty for playing hooky once in a while. However, getting the right amount of sleep, breathing fresh air, taking a walk, or doing something you love promotes balance both mentally and emotionally.

Exercise to Feel Better

It’s a fact; we feel better when we exercise regularly. Does this mean you need to run out and buy a home gym or commit to a demanding workout regime? No, of course not. Enjoy a swim, take a walk, do an easy floor exercise, or go dancing. In short, make the most of what your body is comfortable doing.

Be Kind to Your Eyes

Too many of us take our eyesight for granted. Keep your baby blues healthy by eating plenty of leafy greens, salmon, tuna, nuts, and beans. It’s also advisable to exercise regularly, wear sunglasses outdoors, visit your eye doctor regularly, and maintain your prescriptions. Finally, consider how much time you spend at your computer and remember to take breaks.

Don’t Fail Your Feet

Often overlooked, feet may well be the hardest working body parts. It’s easy to take them for granted until there is a problem. Prevention is key to foot care. With that in mind, things like cleanliness, moisturizing, and nail care are paramount. In addition, choosing the right footwear prevents injuries and chronic conditions.

Here is a small sampling of the health and medical grants available.
