Easy Ways to be Healthier

Discover 12 simple ways for keeping a good health

We all look for easy ways to stay healthy, without much disruption to our daily lives. There's no magical solution for keeping a good health. But some easy, simple steps can be taken by anyone to become healthier.

How to keep good health

Follow these 12 easy steps and you will find yourself feeling better, sleeping more soundly, keeping weight off, and even boosting your immune system.

1. Have a lie down

Back pain can be avoided and the damage repaired with one easy exercise, which is lie down on the floor with your knees bent, hip width apart, feet on the floor. Do this daily for about five to fifteen minutes to release and lengthen your spine.

2. Watch your nibbles

Crash diets don't work for long and can even do more harm than good. Instead, try maintaining a food diary to note your daily eating habits for a week. With this you'll be conscious of what you eat, and make healthier choices.

3. Ten deep breaths

Our breathing powers our lymphatic system, which removes waste from cells. By taking 10 deep breaths, three times a day, you'll clear more toxins and boost your thinking power by getting 20% more oxygen to your brain. In addition, deep breathing will relax you and provide temporary stress relief.

4. Put your fork down

Between every mouthful of food, put your fork down. This will make you chew your food properly, preventing digestive problems. It will also prevent you from over- eating. A well-chewed food tastes better, too.

5. Make a list

We live in a fast, stressful society. The most effective stress buster is to make a list. Your short term memory can only remember, on an average, seven things. So when you overload it, your stress level escalates. Making a list clears out all the stress from your brain and you feel tension free. This saves you from headaches, depression and high blood pressure.

6. Massage your feet

Poor circulation could be robbing you of much needed sleep. Your temperature needs to drop slightly before you fall asleep, so your body dispels heat via your face, hands and feet. Women in particular can have a poor circulation, which constricts the blood vessels in their hands and feet, preventing them from dispelling heat. A hot bath before sleeping or a hand and foot massage will increase your circulation and give you more sound sleep.

7. Eat an apple a day

"An apple a day keeps the doctor away". This saying is some 150 years old and still holds true. Apples contain many valuable nutrients that provide numerous health benefits. From lowering blood pressure and glucose levels, helping maintain the health of the digestive system, to reducing free radical damage via vitamins A, C, E and beta carotene. Apple is also a nature's toothbrush, cleaning teeth and killing bacteria in the mouth. Apples are just about universally available, so this particularly healthy fruit is only as far as your nearest shop, or apple tree in your backyard. Homegrown apples, even if smaller in size, are large on nutrients, free of pesticide residues. When buying apples, go for organic ones, which are also high on nutrients and pesticides free.

8. Change your tea bag

When it comes to tea, white is the new green. White tea comes from the same plant as green and black but is harvested earlier and undergoes less processing, which means it contains more cancer-fighting antioxidants. If white is not "your cup of tea", then go green. Some of its many benefits include weight loss, reducing bad cholesterol, regulating glucose levels, and providing a relaxing and tranquilizing effect.

9. Eat dried apricots

The most common nutritional deficiency is iron. Tiredness, irritability and lack of concentration. Prevent it by having two helpings of lean red meat a week, or three dried apricots a day. Dried apricots have a high content of beta carotene, which is responsible for the formation of vitamin A. They also contain vitamin C, as well as minerals like iron, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus. Dried apricots are also suitable for diabetes sufferers, as one of the rare dried fruits that doesn't raise glucose levels.

10. Stop skipping meals

Eating three meals a day is very important for a healthy body. It's the simplest way to balance blood sugar levels, which will keep your mood, energy and concentration balanced and strengthen your stress tolerance. It's also good to snack in between your meals, such as eating a fruit, a couple of bisquits, a cup of tea, etc. It's been found that those who snack between the meals are less likely to gain weight, than those who eat three large meals only.

11. Eat your vegetables

Yes, when you were kid your mum must have told you this a hundred times. There's a lot of thruth in it. Many of the vitamins and minerals are found in vegetables and are essential to our health and wellbeing. Some of them are lost through cooking, so raw food is as good as it gets. Include some raw vegetables in every meal.

12. Do your exercise

Take two minutes to boost your resolve to go for a walk, jog or do an aerobics class. Even only 15-20 minutes a day of an exercise that increases your heart rate and builds the lung capacity will result in numerous health benefits. But focus on your feeling. The instant gratification of that exercise high is far more motivating than the promise of thinner thighs two months down the line. This endorphin-induced natural high is the most effective stress therapy, that will leave you elated and feeling great.

There are many more ways to be healthier. But these 12 steps are a good start. Even if you start implementing only a handful of these steps, you will find yourself on the way to more energy, less stress, and a more positive outlook on life.
