My husband is struggling with a health problem at this time. My sister-in-law has many health problems. I have not the energy that I would have. A friend struggle with their weight. I think everyone on the planet, at certain times or seasons of his life anyway, could live a healthier life. That’s what motivates me to write about six ways, in particular, can have better health.
You may want to move quickly through the items below and say. “There is nothing new I know all that,” and then be tempted to go to the next blog in your list. Please do not do that. Bear with me. Ask yourself, “Am I really doing this in my daily life-?” Because if not, then there is room for improvement.
1. Move Your Body
I know I’ve said this before. I know you’ve probably heard this a couple of times bazillion. Not getting enough exercise. If you do not currently have an exercise program, please do not start with running a mile today. Start slow . Exit recliner and turn off the TV without using the remote control. Walk to the neighbor instead of driving the car. Bicycling to the store. Then, once you’re used to the motion, starting a stretching program. It does not have to be anything fancy or organized. Waiting for the coffee pot in the morning to reach the roof and then bend and touch your toes a few times. Once the folds are out, move on to something a bit more demanding. If you need accountability, join an exercise class or get a walking partner. Just get moving.
2. Drinking pure water
I do not want to get into a discussion about how good tap water is a disadvantage for you or drinking from plastic bottles. I just want to drink water. Stop putting these coins in the machine that spits aluminum cans. Stop going through the drive-thru for a steaming cup of Joe. When you are thirsty, drink water. If you need to know how much is enough use of this formula.
Body weight x = .5 ounces of water to drink every day
That means a 200-pound person needs 100 ounces of water per day. One hundred ounces is a little more than 3 quarts. This formula is for a normal day. In the heat of summer, or during exercise, our bodies require more.
3. Eat fresh foods
How many times a week do you eat fast food? How many Box Tops for Education could save for their children’s school? Forget the Box Tops. It’ll do better eat things without barcode. The rule in our house is to eat foods as close to the way God made it possible. That means that an apple before applesauce before the apple pie. An acquaintance has not eaten in a fast food establishment in years. Do you want to receive the incentive to join him? Watch the film Food, Inc.
4. Breathe fresh air
Most Americans live and work in climate controlled environments. central heating and air conditioning, office windows that do not open, even A / C in our cars, deprive our lungs with fresh air. If you work in an office, the air coworkers in cough is circulated in his cubicle. So what can you do about it? Go outside for breaks and lunch. Take a deep breath. At home, open windows whenever possible. Let the breeze. Enjoy.
5. Wash your hands
As soon as we got home from a trip to town to know my kids go directly to a sink and wash hands with soap. In the grocery store, we use wet wipes and clean courtesy car handle before use. We have also used to clean our hands when leaving the store. I never use the pen cashier. How many people have touched that pen that day and how healthy they are? My daughter suffered with mononucleosis last year. Looking back, she knows how he got it. She went to request a test, use the public pencil and put it in your mouth! Phew! I teach better. Now I’m not promoting germaphobia here. Just a little common sense.
6. Go to bed early
There is truth in the saying: “Early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” Our bodies use sleep we get before midnight better than those hours after midnight. Going to bed at a consistent time and getting up at a consistent time each day (including weekends) is important. Lack of sleep may lead to chronic fatigue, depression, hypertension or memory loss.
could follow. It could be more specific. But I do not think it’s necessary. Six are so basic things most people pass them by. It is easier to pop a pill, take a supplement or try herbs of what is to change your diet. But that is so backwards. The work on these things and I want to know how. I love to hear their stories.
