Healthy Habits To Incorporate Into Your Everyday Life
How to make your lifestyle healthier? Normally we always say that we have to diet, be stricter with alcohol and eat less pastries to get a healthier mind and body, but even those goals are difficult to achieve.
That’s why we want to suggest small changes that you can add to your day to day and in this way get a healthier body and have more energy. Even with big changes and goals in mind, if you start slowly with these healthy habits, you will create a daily routine that is easier to maintain. Take a look at our 6 tips for a better quality of life.
Stretch for 5-10 minutes a day
Whether you exercise daily or not, stretching improves physical well-being. Stretching after running or doing weights is the best way to reduce aches and pains after exercise, but it’s also great even if you haven’t done any sport. Stretching 5 to 10 minutes before going to sleep has been found to improve the quality of sleep and increase the feeling the day after you’ve rested completely.
Choose real, unprocessed food
If you are going to shop at the supermarket it is recommended that you do not go hungry as you will shop with your eyes and not consciously. After having eaten it is easier to make sensible decisions.
Try to choose the least processed foods and the foods with the least chemical processes: legumes, fruit, vegetables, dairy products, etc.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day
We recommend that as soon as you wake up you drink a glass of water to start your metabolism, feel fresher and get the brain to start the day stronger. After having had a long sleep our body asks to hydrate us.
We also recommend that you drink a lot of tea, water with lemon or natural drinks instead of processed drinks.
Take cold showers
As part of your daily routine you can implement this change and take cold showers. The shower will be invigorating, totally clearing your brain. You won’t waste too much time in the shower and you’ll help your body adapt to different temperatures. It’s worth it!
Follow rule 20 -20- 6
Many of the current works force us to be in front of a computer for 8 hours and makes our eyes get tired or we have a headache. We recommend that every 20 minutes approximately, you rest 20 seconds the view looking at a distance of 6 meters, helping your eyes rest and prevent them from drying out. If this doesn’t work, we recommend that you use drops to moisturize your eyes, such as these everclear drops.
Stay on one leg while brushing your teeth 🙂
Okay, we recognize that sounds a little strange. But as we get older we lose our balance. So if every night before going to sleep we do this little exercise you can improve your balance. Even if you wear monthly contact lenses you can do the same exercise for longer.
Try to incorporate some of these tips every week until they’re so easy that they’re completely in your daily routine. We hope you’ll notice the difference in just a few weeks and feel more energetic and healthier without making a big change.
