1. Look at your life choices: Small changes can add up to a big difference.
We’ve all had those well-intentioned moments when we resolve to make sweeping lifestyle changes: Quit smoking. Lose 20 pounds. Join a gym and start exercising every day.
While we should always strive to accomplish these types of health goals, the road to better health doesn’t always have to mean making huge leaps.
There are also many smaller steps you can take that will help improve your overall health and quality of life.
Because they’re things you can easily incorporate into your routine, they’ll be easy to maintain for the long haul.
Even if you have only a few minutes to spare, you can use that time to improve your well-being.
Try incorporating the following activities and strategies into your day. When these simple steps become habits, they can add up to a big positive effect on your overall health.
2. Look at your stress level: Enjoy de-stressing.
Experts recommend regular exercise, meditation and breathing techniques to reduce stress.
But even something as simple — and enjoyable — as listening to soothing music, reading a good book, soaking in a hot tub or playing with your pet can help you relax.
That’s advice you should take to heart because prolonged stress can cause or exacerbate a number of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, depression, ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, migraines, and obesity.
Don’t have a lot of time? Don’t let that stress you out. As with exercise, even brief periods of relaxation are beneficial.
Spending even 10 minutes at a time doing something you enjoy can go a long way toward beating the stressors of everyday life.
3. Look at your cat: Copy your kitty.
Learn to do stretching exercises when you wake up. It boosts circulation and digestion and eases back pain.
4. Look at your breakfast: Don’t skip breakfast.
Studies show that eating a proper breakfast is one of the most positive things you can do if you are trying to lose weight.
Breakfast skippers tend to gain weight.
A balanced breakfast includes fresh fruit or fruit juice, a high-fiber breakfast cereal, low-fat milk or yogurt, whole-wheat toast, and a boiled egg.
It’s never too early — or too late — to adopt healthy habits. When you’re young, they can build the foundation for a lifetime of good health.
When you’re older, healthy habits can help you control any diseases you have and lower your risk of getting others in the future.
