5 Ways To Keep Yourself Healthy
When you’re a child, adulthood seemed like a fairy tale land that was far away. You didn’t have to think about your sugar or fat intake. You didn’t have to think about going for a run at 6am three times a week. You certainly didn’t worry whether you were eating too much, because all the running around you did at school was burning it all off for you!
However, a part of adulthood is taking care of your health. You become very aware of your own body as you grow up, something that children are blissfully ignorant toward. Living a healthier life doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive, it just takes some effort on your part. There are many ways of living a healthier lifestyle, and we’ve listed five ways you can do just that.
Act like water is the only drink left on earth, and it’s all you’ll drink. Our bodies are made up of 90% water. We are basically cucumbers with feelings. Without water, we will shrivel up and dry out – not a good look. Water doesn’t just keep your brain hydrated, either. Your skin will look amazing the more water you drink, you’ll have more energy and your digestive system will be thanking you for it, too. Enjoy other drinks, but in moderation.
Eat real food. Physically, all food is real, but if a slice of bread is as nutritionally equal to a slice of cardboard, would you still eat it? Probably not. You should be eating a balanced diet with mainly fruits, vegetables and whole grains for fiber. If your food has too many ingredients in it that aren’t of other foods, steer clear of it.
Have the right healthcare plan. You’re an adult, you’ve probably already researched the best Medicare supplemental insurance plans. If you’ve done this and chosen one, you have covered your health properly so that should you ever need professional medical care, you have a back-up to help pay for it. Getting the best medical care is crucial to your future and you should ensure you sort this as early as possible.
Sleep is not a punishment. As a child, a nap felt like the end of the world and being sent to bed was a punishment. As an adult, sleep is a golden gift from the Gods of ZZZ. Your body needs time to recharge in the same way it needs food to fuel it and water to hydrate it. If your job or your social life are preventing you from a minimum of seven hours sleep a night, change it. You need to be a whole, healthy human and sleep can help you get there.
Exercise isn’t torture, we promise. Keeping your body moving will keep you from getting too stiff, too sick and too sore to actually move. Find something that makes you feel fantastic and grab hold of it. Making exercise fun is crucial in keeping motivated, so join a class if you need to. Listen to your body and pay attention to what you need to keep your heart healthy.
