Is It Time You Made Your Health A Priority? Coming Up With A New Healthy Living Mantra


Have you been partying too hard or ordering too many takeouts of late? Is it years rather than days since you did any exercise? Have you started smoking again? Do you drink more than you should? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, your body may be in need of some serious TLC. Now is as good a time as any to make positive changes and establish your health as a priority.

Simple rules to live by: Creating a New Mantra

You read about healthy living all the time. If you searched online, you’d find thousands of articles on this subject. So what do you really need to do to be healthier, and which changes should you enforce first?

Smoking

Most smokers know that every cigarette is bad for them, but this doesn’t always mean they want to give up. Perhaps you’ve found it impossible to quit before. Maybe you enjoy smoking, and you don’t want to stop. The reality is that smoking is the most harmful thing you can do to your body. It increases the risk of several life-threatening illnesses and is the most common preventable cause of death. Cigarettes contain hundreds of toxic chemicals, including carcinogens, which increase the risk of cancer. If you succeed in giving up smoking, you’ll improve your health significantly. It’s not easy, but it is doable. If you need help or support, contact your doctor or dentist. Many smokers find it easier to quit if they do it with others. Group sessions can be hugely beneficial.

Drinking

Drinking too much carries major risks for your vital organs. The latest guidelines suggest a maximum intake of two drinks per day for men and women. If you drink more than this, make an effort to cut down. Swap alcoholic drinks for soft drinks, and consider staying in rather than going out. Avoid shots, and keep a diary so that you know how much you consume on an average week.

Being more active

Living a sedentary lifestyle can put you at risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer. The good news is that’s easy to be more active. Walk down the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Cycle or jog to work. Go for a run or do a workout at home. Spend the weekends at a national park rather than a movie theater. You may be thinking about joining a gym. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, search for free trial at fitness center offers. You can try it out and see how you get on without spending any money.

Healthy eating

A healthy, balanced diet will boost your energy levels and immunity. It will also ensure that your body gets all the nutrients it needs. Try and cut down on sugars and saturated fats. Drink plenty of water, and aim for five portions of fruit and vegetables per day. Keep an eye on your calorie intake and look for simple, healthy recipes online.

Have you neglected your health of late? If so, it’s time to make some changes. It may be tough but hang in there. You’ll look and feel better before you know it.
