10 Easy Health Tips you should do every day to stay healthy
♥ 1 – Take your vitamins.
Health Tips-It’s not that hard. Our western diet lacks nutrients. Even if we eat pretty well, it’s unlikely that we get ALL the nutrition we need from our food. So, it’s important to keep the balance and provide your body with the proper supplements.
♥ 2 – Eat whole foods.
Even if you don’t want to go buy organic, you can switch from processed to whole and you will still notice the benefits. Whole foods will help you take a huge step in the right direction towards getting some nutrition from food. With the whole foods in the menu you’ll be cutting down on the chemical additives / preservatives in processed foods which in itself a big step towards being healthy.
♥ 3 – Quit Drinking Soda.
Some people will think is pretty painful a task. But it’s on the list anyway. Soda is the one thing that I cannot justify. I can justify wine, chocolate, ice cream once in a while. And if I was trying hard, I could even justify a single mixed drink now and then. But not soda as something to drink regularly. Do you know that there are THIRTY-NINE GRAMS of sugar in one can of coke? Your daily maximum that is considered acceptable for your body is 25 grams. That means if you have one can of coke per day, you actually can’t even enjoy a spoonful of sugar in your coffee or tea.
♥ 4 – And exchange it for water.
It’s obvious to have it on the list! Afterall, you cannot substitute water for anything. Plus, it helps you in numerous ways that can’t even be counted.
♥ 5 – Look for natural remedies before you grab chemicals.
I know there’s a place for pills, I just don’t think they should be the first thing we reach for. Look into a natural anti-inflammatory like Turmeric instead of Ibuprofen, try peppermint oil for headaches, apple cider vinegar for heartburn, kefir for digestive problems and serenity formula for stress or anxiety. The fewer chemicals your body needs to process the better.
♥ 6 – Move your body.
I’m not suggesting that you start cross-fit if that sounds like hell on earth to you… I’m just suggesting you find something you genuinely enjoy doing that’s a little bit active. It could be dancing, swimming, walking, rock climbing…absolutely anything. Find something that you love, then it won’t be hard to do.
♥ 7 – Appreciate your body.
Healthy people are happy in their skin. That doesn’t mean they don’t want to improve themselves or continue to work towards their goals, but they do have an appreciation for what they have today.
♥ 8 – A cheat meal once in a while.
But just one, and preferably red. You can’t deprive yourself of all the good things in life and expect to live healthfully. If wine isn’t your thing, or you don’t do booze (in which case, good for you!), then maybe ice cream once a week or so? Have a treat and enjoy it.
♥ 9 – Cut back on TV and your phone.
Read more, write more or paint. Play a board game with your person. To have a healthy mind we need to let it wander into new places once in a while. You might even find you don’t miss the TV!
♥ 10 – Prioritize sleep.
This is nothing new to hear about. It’s difficult to put the effort into exercise or cooking or picking up a book if you’re exhausted. Get some decent rest! Plus your body restores itself while you sleep, so it makes sense you need to do this to be healthy.
