Rather than treating each ailment or serious condition as it arises, it’s better to stay healthy in the first place. While it may save money, pain, time and improve the quality of your life, it’s not always the easiest for busy people. Creating a plan to keep you body healthy takes a bit of time, but it can be the most important time you’ve ever spent that will affect your health for years to come.
Improve your diet.
You may already be eating healthy, but most people aren’t. Even if you eat a low calorie, high nutrient and fiber diet, there’s probably something you can improve. The road to healthy eating involves eating whole foods or foods as close to unprocessed as possible. Whole foods have more nutrients because they aren’t destroyed by processing. They also don’t contain chemicals many of the processed foods contain. Try to eat as many organic foods as possible. Some studies show that pesticides used in non-organic farming may end up in the fruit or vegetable and you end up consuming it.
In addition to changing your eating pattern, regular exercise can be one addition to your daily life that makes a huge difference in whether you’re healthy or not and the quality of life you have. Exercise builds the immune system, increases circulation, builds the heart muscles, clears plaque improves all bodily functions, including elimination and breathing. It reduces the risk of serious diseases and makes them more controllable if you already have a serious condition.
Drink more water.
If you have a source of clean healthy water, drink it liberally. Many cities treat their water, which creates some concerns among purists, who may be right to be concerned. Drinking eight glasses of clear pure water each day can help flush the toxins out of the body and prevent dehydration. Replenishing your body with water each day is important.
Get plenty of sleep. Studies now show that lack of sleep can affect your overall health, particularly your heart health.
Do all types of exercises. While lifting weights can help prevent osteoporosis, you still need endurance training for your heart and flexibility training to increase range of motion and prevent injury.
Quit bad habits. In this case, its referring to overindulgence in alcohol, smoking and drugs. While a small amount of wine may improve your health, guzzling shot after shot of hard alcohol does quite the opposite.
Keep a good attitude toward life. Staying happy actually keeps you healthier. Exercise can eliminate stress and stimulate the body to create hormones that make you feel good.
