Becoming and remaining healthy in our lives now is something we are all interested in because we want to live our lives to the fullest. We all want to be there to see our children grow up, and have grandchildren. In this article, I’m going to give you the ultimate dos and don’ts that you can apply to your lifestyle to keep you fit and healthy.

Dos

  1. Aim to exercise three times a week for thirty minutes. Doing an activity of your choice that will get your heart rate up and make you feel slightly out of breath will ensure that you’re burning off any unwanted calories. It will also keep your muscles, joints, and lungs supple and healthy. If you’re not someone who particularly enjoys exercise, choose something that will take your mind off the fact that you are exercising like a team sport, for example.

  1. Keep your liquid intake up. Experts say that we should aim to drink 2 liters of water per day. If you’re not keen on drinking just water, you could opt for non-sugary squash or skinny tea. This will help prevent bloating and keep you hydrated. Staying hydrated helps keep your concentration levels up, and will keep your skin strong and clear from blemishes.

  2. Try to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. It’s super easy to cram all of it into your diet too. For example, a glass of orange juice counts as one of your five a day. Adding vegetables to your evening meal and taking fruit to snack on at work will make it easy to get the recommended amount.

  3. Swap naughty snacks for healthier options. There’s nothing wrong with snacking, as it keeps your energy levels up and helps you last until your next meal. Do, however, make sure that it’s a healthy snack otherwise you will find yourself piling on weight.

Don’ts

  1. Don’t smoke. Giving up smoking alone will be one of the best things that you could do for your health. As we all know, smoking can cause cancer and many other life threatening illnesses. All smoking does is deteriorate your health and drain your bank account. So quit now. You will soon notice more money in your bank, you will smell better, and you will feel better for not smoking.

  1. Gorging on takeouts and unhealthy food is something we should all avoid. Of course, everything can be eaten in moderation, but unfortunately, takeout and processed food contain additives that make our brains want to eat more of it; hence why many people in the world are obese. Treat yourself every now and then if you desire, but remember to return to your normal healthy eating habits afterwards.

 

As you can tell, eating healthy and ensuring that you stay healthy requires just a little bit of common sense. We all know that smoking and eating greasy foods will damage our health, so why do it? Make the change today and start living your life to the fullest!
