Simple and Practical Ways of Improving Your Health and Well-being
Achieving a healthy body doesn’t need to be expensive and complicated because there are many simple and practical ways of improving your health and well-being. Sometimes we overlook these simple things and we tend to over analyze, but we lack the application and the willingness to even start doing them. Health does not only involve the physical body but also the emotional, social, psychological and spiritual aspects of one’s total well-being. As we all probably know, our ancestors lived longer than people of today’s modern era, it is because they lived a simpler, less complicated, active and less stressful way of life.
When we were children, our parents and our teachers taught and constantly reminded us that eating fruits and vegetables is very important, and junk food, as well as processed foods, are bad for our health. Same as hard-headed individuals, we still apply the contrary and continue with our poor eating habits even now that we are smart adults. You can start being practical in choosing nutritious food the first day you go in the supermarket such as fruits and vegetables, and avoid high carbohydrate, high calorie and high in fat foods such as soda, ice cream, chips, chocolates and canned goods. It has been proven that low-carb diet can help in weight reduction by lowering the production of ghrelin or “hunger hormone” so you won’t get hungry easily, thus reducing your food intake per day. It is best to buy food without ingredients or only a few ingredients, and consume real food instead, that have good quality and minimally processed food.
When it comes to exercise, you can do simple exercises before going to work like stretching or jogging in place even for short period of time, as long as you start doing it every day and eventually it becomes a hobby. Live your life by not dwelling too much indoors, go outside and breath some fresh air, and if you’re in the office invite some close colleagues outside to view a beautiful nature scenery or the sky on your lunch time. We are living in the digital age, and there are so many health apps you can download online to help you achieve health and fitness. Health apps come in different features and uses such as for counting your calorie intake, monitoring the number of steps when walking or running, diet planners and health e-books. Download apps for free or paid depending on your choice or preference. If you have problems or your troubled with something, talk to a friend or to your spouse because you also need to have a healthy mind and well-being.
