There are many things you can do to increase your overall health.
Eat better: More plants and protein, less fats and sugars. That is not to say to remove all fats from your diet, but be reasonable. Also, eat more smaller meals and less big meals, and for goodness sakes, don’t overstuff or overeat to the point of feeling overly full. Eat small portions on a small plate.
Meditate or Prayer: Meditation or prayer has been proven many times to reduce stress, thereby increasing your health as a benefit.
Sleep: Most of us do not get enough restful sleep. Go to bed earlier and sleep a little longer.
Drink More Water: Not saying you need to drink 2 gallons a day, but you do need enough to keep your body flushed of bad things and hydrated properly. Most people live in a state of dehydration due to too much coffee, alcohol, and more.
But, the one thing that helps the most is: Move. Exercise. Be Physically Active.
Physical activity will reduce stress, cause you to drink more water, improve your sleep patters, and will cause you to be more aware of what you are eating and how it effects you. Exercise is the ONE think that effects almost everything above.
Walk every morning or evening. Join a health club and attend at least 3 times a week. Just move. Even if it’s just walking around your work or home once a day, do something that gets you out of your chair. Slowly increase your daily movement until you begin to feel better, then do a bit more. You likely need 30 to 60 minutes of exercising a day to achieve most health goals. So get started today.
