Everyone wants to feel better and eat healthier, but sometimes we forget the simple daily things we can do to improve our health. With spring in the air and temperatures rising our activities move outside and we shed all the extra layers of clothing such as scarves, boots, and coats.
Here are a few simple ways to help you create a healthier lifestyle in your own home.
Drink More Water. Your body is 90 percent water and needs water for almost every function. Many of the aches and pains, headaches, and other symptoms we experience would lessen if we just drank more water.
Go for a brisk walk. Your body was made to move. Your heart is a muscle that needs movement to function optimally.
We know this but we often need a reminder to just do it.
Stand up. Do you work in an office? sometimes just standing up, stretching, and maybe even take a quick walk around the building can boost your spirits and improve your health.
Less carbs. Carbohydrates have the biggest impact on blood sugar and insulin levels, by lowering your intake blood sugar levels are controlled and insulin levels are minimized.
Hug someone you love. When you hug someone you love, your body releases feel-good hormones like oxytocin that
ward off depression.
Fruits and Vegetables. Veggies and fruits are loaded with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants, which have been shown to protect against chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. They are also low in calories, making them a great choice for your waistline.
Here are just a few daily changes you can make to improve your health and boost your mood.
