Quick Tips To Stay Healthy
We are probably all guilty of not entirely taking care of ourselves as much as we should. It’s too hard, too expensive, takes too long to see good results. The list of excuses goes on. But, it’s time to leave those excuse on your pillow and give yourself a shakeup.
Why is it so simple to drink countless coffees, teas, juices, and even fizzy drinks, but when it comes to water we just don’t bother? Water is so much better for you than all of those things. Even upping your intake by a few glasses a day will see a significant improvement in your skin, energy, sleep, and concentration.
Just sleeping is okay, but getting good quality rest and relaxation is better for you. If you head to bed before you are tired you will end up more frustrated, and get less sleep in the end. Try and create a routine to allow your body and brain to start switching off earlier in the evening. The calm app has a gentle reminder set for you to let you know when you should start winding down to get a full night's sleep. If you really struggle with sleeping then consider researching melatonin and magnesium supplements.
We are more seated than ever before. Most of the time we are sitting in an office, hunched over a computer for up to 9 hours a day, then we go home and slump on the couch too. It’s just not great for you. Start checking out places to go walking or running. Just before you decide on a route to go, check for roadworks, new surfaces and temporary traffic lights. Avoid an accident and the need for mass tort settlements.
Ditch The Fizz
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Stop drinking sugary fizzy drinks. Anything that can be used to clean a penny or you toilet ideally shouldn’t be ingested. Not only that but the amount of sugar on a regular basis will increase your risk of developing diabetes.
Teeth & Gums
Floss, brush, and mouthwash twice a day. Some gum issues have been linked to the heart in previous years. So it pays to take care of both. This will also keep bad breath at bay, and reduce your risk of plaque building up.
And eat it. A few portions of fish every week will give a considerable boost in Omega-3 fatty acids. Some of which improves hearing, eyesight, and protect your brain in the long term against illnesses related to aging, like dementia.
Try to eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables every day. Each of the colors is packed out with a lot of different vitamins and minerals and eating them is much better than taking a multivitamin.
Whatever it is you enjoy doing, you should try to do it. Making time for hobbies is excellent for stress levels, and allows you to be creative.
Being healthy isn’t always about changing everything, you can often add or take away small things over a period of months to enjoy some great health benefits.
