Investing in Your Wellness

Getting a good night's sleep on a supportive mattress is just one part of investing in a healthy lifestyle. Being active and eating healthy also play a large role. And with healthcare costs and unemployment rates increasing, CRN says that now, more than ever, it's important to think about taking an integrative approach to preventive healthcare.

"Studies show that healthy individuals tend to engage in many healthy habits--eating a healthy diet, taking supplements, exercising regularly and getting adequate amounts of sleep--as an integrative approach to wellness," says Douglas MacKay, N.D., vice president, scientific and regulatory affairs, CRN.
