We all believe that “Health is wealth”, but honestly how many of us follow that. A few I guess. We know smoking and liquor consumption is injurious to health, maintaining proper weight is essential, eating healthy diet etc all sounds easy, but while incorporating these changes in life calls for a big effort. Most of us give up too soon due to lack of motivation. Here I am sharing some small and efficient health nuggets which will not only keep you healthy but also bring your body back in form.
1 Glass of water after waking up
Have a glass of water after waking up. The water should be at room temperature or you can warm up a little. This will help to clear up your system and will flush out all the toxins in your body. Drinking water eventually will increase your metabolism and helps in your weight loss regime.
Take a sound Sleep
If you aren’t having a sound sleep, you will feel irritated, tired and will face lack of concentration the complete day. Having a sleep less than 5 hours can hamper your physical health as well. In case you feel sleepy in the evening, the reason is clear you did not have a proper sleep last night.
Stretch your body in the morning
Rather than snoozing in the morning, you need to utilize your time properly. After waking up just spare 5-10 minutes for stretching exercise. Stretch your back, neck and legs. This will help your body to be active immediately as stretching increases the blood flow towards the muscles.
Salted nuts, cookies, candies, potato chips and other yummy stuff are unhealthy for your body. These are good for nothing as they contain a lot of sugar and salt. Rather than eating these, you can go for healthy nuts and fresh fruits which are rich in minerals and vitamins.
Don’t skip breakfast
Don’t ever skip your breakfast. Having a proper breakfast provides you with energy which is essential for all your metabolic activities following the day. If you miss your breakfast, you will feel hungry before lunch and eat the snacks or cookies which are absolutely unhealthy for your health.
Go for a walk daily
We all know the importance of the physical activity but due to the busy schedules neither of us have time to spare for that. But you can easily take out time for that from your daily activities such as taking stairs, prefer walking instead of taking bus (in case your workplace is closeby), and walk with your friends. This will not only make you physically fit but will improve your cardiac health as well.
Make Social Connections
Make friends and participate in social activities as well. Being lonely will just make you feel more depressed, anxious and physically less active. The lonely people are more prone to illness and diseases.
Study Ingredient lists
It’s very essential to know what your entire favorite product contains. The product does not only limit to edible items but for non-edible ones as well. You must know what is contained in your cosmetics also. You should keep a watch on the harmful substances which may cause you allergy or even cancer.
Engage in new activities
Try engaging yourself and the family in a common activity such as skiing, bicycle riding, running, playing a game etc. Try to find a hobby which can help you in your ed-stressing regime and makes your feel refreshed.
Life is precious, Love it!!
Smile and stay positive! This will not only fill happiness in your life but in others as well.
