We all have our tricks of the trade to live the fullest, healthiest and longest life we can. After all Eleanor Roosevelt did say, “Life is what you make it. Always has been, always will be.” So why not make it a long and healthy one?
There are basic rules of thumb that, if followed, can lead to just that. Sounds like common sense, but how are you matching up with these simple – yet effective – ways to improve your life?
Start with eating healthy. Just because you’re craving something doesn’t mean it’s good for you – most cravings are for junk food. Go ahead and feed the craving, but don’t overdo it; denying your body what it wants may lead to overeating in the future, but eating junk food all the time is not good for you either.
Learn to relax properly. Those who take time for silence and contemplation remain more at ease and avoid stress more often than those who allow it to become overwhelming. Too much stress builds up both physically and emotionally – make the time to clear your mind.
Be sociable! Having human contact is a necessity. Being around people leads to a happier life and gives us a feeling of fulfillment and comfort.
Wear your sunscreen. It’s not just an Old Maid’s Tale. That number next to SPF is your code to healthier skin and a healthier life.
Learn your family’s medical history. Although sometimes scary, its information you need to know. Some medical diseases can be passed down through generations – and some can be prevented. So learn what you need to be aware of so you can take the precautions early to avoid complications later on.
Brush your teeth. Yes, oral hygiene is part of a healthy lifestyle! Making this routine can avoid dental problems. If you don’t take care of your teeth it can lead to heart disease.
