5 Simple Ways to Become Healthier2survive
1 – Exercise at Least 3 Times a Week
Now, some of you may be thinking, “well I’m not joining a gym. I’m not going to run a triathlon. I’m not…” FINE! – You don’t have to! However, you can lean up, increase energy levels, get more oxygen to your brain, relieve depression naturally and feel friggin’ great just from taking a 20-minute brisk walk. If you can’t go 20 minutes, start off with 10 or whatever you can go for. IF you want to take it to the next level, then add some weights. – Just make sure you get SOME kind of exercise in during the week.
2 – Take a Quality Multivitamin
Take a quality multivitamin with a meal. It will help close the gaps on some of those vitamins and minerals you aren’t getting daily. I recommend vitamins from the brand Alive.
3 – Get Some Fruit and Vegetables into Your Diet!
Add some fruits and vegetables to your diet. Spinach and blueberries are some of my favorites and can even be added to smoothies. I promise you will not taste the spinach if you make the smoothie right. Try a little something like spinach, blueberries, pineapple and mango. This is a shake I drink at least 3 times a week. Talk about cancer killer! – And seriously, this thing tastes great! Let me note, if you load up on fruit at night, there is a good chance that it will go to your hip bone. I suggest cutting back on carbohydrates at 5:00 in the afternoon. After that, eat only protein and vegetables.
4 – Meditate
This may sound foreign to you, because it literally is a foreign concept. But the Asian culture has long been known for living for lengthy periods of time. Other than diet, the Asian culture is well known for many alternative treatments and prevention of disease. Meditation is a great way to alleviate stress. Stress is responsible for all sorts of health conditions and problems due to the chemicals produced in the body when a person is stressed for long periods of time. So I suggest, Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong or something along those lines.
5 – Balance Your Life
Do you like your work? Workaholic? – Great! – But take a break! Go have fun with friends and family! Make time for the things you love. I suggest organizing and “optimizing” your life. Find things you are passionate about, and have that as something you can look forward to when you are not at work. MAKE IT a part of your schedule! There is family and friends, music, collecting, building, thrift shopping, biking, hiking, bowling…blogging?
