5 ways to feel younger and healthier
We have to admit–there are days when our bodies remind us that we're no longer as young and as healthy as we would want. All-nighters with friends no longer get us excited and we would rather head home from work than go out for a few drinks.
However, if you feel like this every single day, I suggest you make a few adjustments to your lifestyle. These steps are easy to do, and you do not need to spend so much or change your daily routine.
Ready to take charge of your health? Here are some suggestions:
Drink water whenever you can. It not only prevents dryness from your mouth to your throats, but it also keeps your body in the right temperature on a humid day. Our skin wrinkles easily if deprived of H2O. Remember that our body is basically 60% water, and if dehydrated, its organs cannot function properly.
2. Eat the right food
This is easy if you’re still familiar with your go-grow-glow food classification from grade school. If you’re not, then here’s a good tip: make your selection colorful–literally. Get a few proteins, have some vegetables, and make sure you have your dose of Vitamin C via fruits or a supplement.
3. Do the right moves
Imagine walking around the park for a few times, seeing all the kids playing in the ground or the dogs running around with their humans. Doesn’t it give you the right kind of happy? The view is great, and having the right amount of exercise produces the hormone called endorphins, which reduces pain and induces pleasure. So if you work out more often, it’s basically a guarantee for better days and a toner body.
4. Drink the right stuff
Yes, I am aware that caffeine is a necessity, but having too much of it will render you addicted for more. The recommended coffee flavor is black, with two cubes of sugar. You also have to lessen your alcohol intake. A glass of wine a day is good for your heart, but a bottle of it won’t do you any good. As much as possible, turn away from hard mixes and cocktails, too. If you’re craving for a tropical drink, you might as well have a glass of fruit juice.
5. Take up more brain food
Do you know that reading regularly improves your sleeping habits and blood pressure? Of course, acquiring additional knowledge is a given, but because this hobby lessens stress, it boosts your bodily functions to the point that it may actually add more years to your life. It also prevents degenerative illnesses like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.
