Would you like to Improve your Health and Well Being?
You don’t have to go vegan or sign up for latest fitness fad to give your well-being some Va Va Voom! This month, try one of these refreshingly easy feel-good tips to improve your health.
Sometimes big changes start with small steps. Whether you’re trying to make healthier food choices, get more activity into your day or ward off bugs, a healthier you doesn’t have to mean a complete lifestyle makeover.
Here are my top tips to Improve your Health
- Making changes to your lifestyle includes each of the parts that make you unique – your body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Each part contributes to your overall health so make sure you do something to strengthen each part, daily.
- Having a good night’s sleep is as vital as a healthy diet to your health. Take steps to ensure you get a good night’s rest.
- Drinking plenty of water is essential to having a clear mind. We are made up mostly of water. It makes sense to replenish what we use. Staying hydrated helps you to feel your best.
- Even with the healthiest diet, it’s important to take supplements. Supplements pick up where your diet leaves off. This ensures you get all your daily requirements.
- Plenty of sunshine is vital for optimal health. If you can’t get enough sunshine, (which is easy in the UK!), have your vitamin D checked. If you’re lacking, you might need to supplement.
- Maybe when you begin an exercise program, include a plan for indoor exercising. DVD exercise programs are a great way to vary the type of exercise you do. Get a good DVD for each type of exercise – aerobic, strength, balance, and flexibility. Alternatively, check out YouTube which is a great starting place.
- Try to exercise at least three times per week, working up to 30 minutes each time. Even if you must go to bed a little later or rise a few minutes earlier, it’s essential to your overall health, mind and body.
- Eat your broccoli. If you’ve heard your parents tell you to eat your broccoli, they must love you a lot. Broccoli is chock full of nutrients but also have cancer-fighting properties. Or like us, we start our day with Green Juices and Smoothies – it’s an incredible start to the day!
- Hate to exercise? Commit to exercising every day for 15-minutes or more, without fail. Vary the type of exercise, the location, and/or the time you start to keep you motivated and moving. Make exercising an easy habit to form.
- Make the rounds and circulate. Sitting or standing in the same spot for a long period isn’t good for your circulation. Make it a point to get up and walk around for a quick energy boost and to help your circulation. Move it or lose it.
Food to Improve your Health
- The later in the day it gets, the less you should eat. Eat a big breakfast, a medium lunch, and a small, light dinner. Avoid after dinner snacks or eating before bed.
- Satisfy your hunger with flavourful foods. Some diets and dishes consist of bland foods and ingredients. This can lead to eating more as you try to satisfy your hunger. Add flavourful spices without adding calories.
- If you prefer flavourful meat while on a diet, consider adding mustard, salsa, Worcestershire sauce, flavoured vinegar, teriyaki sauce, or hot sauce. These add flavour without adding calories. Make sure they are allowed on your chosen diet.
- Age is just a number. Studies show that if you act old you’ll feel old. But that’s not the worst part. Potentially, can end up developing or suffering from problems before your time. Think young, act young (within reason) and feel young.
Dental Hygiene to Improve your Health
- Watch your mouth! Gum disease and heart disease go hand in hand. Up to 91% of patients have both diseases. Some believe there is a direct connection between the two. Make dental care a top priority to maintain physical health.
- When fitness is a priority, take what your scales say with a grain of salt. Regular bathroom scales only measure total weight. They don’t measure overall fitness or body fat. Talk with your doctor about BMI (body mass index.). If your closes are feeling better, then that’s a great sign!
- Fidget more for better health. Studies show fidgeting increases blood flow and circulation while sitting. Tap your toes, twitch your foot, bounce your leg, and fidget more. Walking is better, but fidgeting is good for your health!
