Good health is a treasure, but when it comes to staying healthy, there are no hard and fast health rules. You simply need to be intentional about cutting out the excesses and building good habits. Since there is much to gain from living healthy, why don’t you try? You will be amazed at the results. Promise!
Here are some easy rules for a healthier you:
- Stick to healthy home-made meals. Yea, this looks like a big task for most, but think of it this way; you are surer of what you prepare yourself! Why not try to cook a “DIY” (do it yourself) healthy meal. Fill your plate or lunch box with a portion of veggies, fruits, and protein. Eat breakfast and keep yourself replenished by drinking water always.
- Find a workout that works for you. When you find a workout or routine that keeps you active, stick to it. 150 minutes per week of moderate physical activity is what we advise. It may not seem like much, but that extra movement does make a difference. Furthermore, running errands on foot, ditching the lift for stairs, and walking instead of driving are easy ways to stay active.
- Get sufficient sleep. It is a fast-paced world with so much to be done, we get it. But there is no negotiating about this one. If you want to be healthy enough to achieve your goals, being sleep deprived won’t help you. Experts recommend at least 30 minutes of no-screen time before bedtime. And WebMD explains that an average adult needs between 7.5 and 8 hours of sleep per night.
- Go for yearly physicals. Physicals are essential. It helps you keep your health in check. During your physical, you will be screened for a wide range of diseases, and treatment will commence early if any anomaly is found. Don’t wait till you are sick, because as the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
These rules aren’t just good for your health; they are good for your self-esteem as well. You can always talk to your doctor about living a healthy life. For more information, Call 704 360 8893 or book a Physicals at Eastway Medical Clinic today.
