In a hectic world and pace of work, you must need to find balance in the small stuff. Actually, sticking to basics can work if you really hold on to some healthy lifestyle tips.
1. Stick to natural food.
A ‘primal’ diet made up of fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, as well as meat, fish and eggs, is best for weight control and improvement in risk markers for illnesses.
2. Keep hydrated.
Maintaining hydration can have a deep influence on our vitality and energy levels, including mental alertness.
3. Always the sun!
While burning is to be avoided, get as much sunlight exposure as possible for optimal health and vitamin D intake.
4. Have a good night sleep!
Getting into bed by 10pm or 10.30pm is a potentially useful investment in terms of your wellbeing and comfort.
5. Turn it off!
Shutting down the computer or turning off the TV early in the evening is often all it takes to create the time and space for earlier sleep.
6. Keep walking and exercise
Aim for a total of about 30 minutes of brisk walking every day. Resistance exercise helps to maintain muscle mass and strengthens the body and reduces the risk of disability and falls.
7. Be kind!
Random acts of kindness are good for givers and receivers alike.
8. Give and take
Our mood can be lifted by giving thanks for anything from our friends and family to a beautiful landscape or sunset.
