Healthy Habits To Do Every Day

35

Start with activities you love:

If you’ve had problems making exercise a regular part of your life, then I imagine you only think of exercise as something you have to do in the gym. But that’s just not true! Things like walking, dancing in your living room, bowling and even cleaning the house can count as exercise as long as you’re getting a little out of breath when you’re doing them.

Support your efforts with a healthy diet:

Food and Nutrition

Along with fresh veggies and fruits, eat slim meats (if you’re not vegetarian), nuts, seeds (sprouts) and salads.  Make sure you get a balanced diet, as often as possible.

Drink water:         

You need to stay hydrated. Not only is it good for your internal organs, it also keeps your skin healthy and lessens acne. To determine your water requirement, divide your weight (in pounds) by two. This gives the daily ounce-recommendation. Cut down on caffeine and caffeinated and aerated beverages. Maintain a healthy weight.

Exercise:

Exercise at least four days a week for 20 to 30 minutes each day. If it’s all not possible at a go, break your workouts into smaller sessions.

Get lots of sleep:

In order to maintain a healthy body, you’ll need eight hours of sleep each night and 10 – 20 minute nap during each day. This keeps you awake and alert, so you don’t have to drink caffeine and sugar-loaded energy drinks.

Laugh and smile:

Smiling a lot makes your face look younger and it feels great. Laughter can increase your blood flow and improve your heart health, according to University of Maryland research reported on the Public Broadcasting Service website. Watch a funny movie or listen to a comedian for 15 minutes per day to promote heart health through hilarity.

 Do something you love:

Play with a pet, go swimming, or jump on a trampoline! Doing things you love to do keep you in a good mood, and make you happier. If you had a bad day at school, ride a bike and take out your anger. Not only is this fun, but it lets you be yourself for awhile. Try it!
