Living A Healthy Life – living a healthy lifestyle benefits


Living a Healthy Life. In the fast paced world that we live in it
can be easy to neglect our health and wellness. We’re so busy racing through our day to
day lives (family, friends, work, social engagements) that we don’t take the time to look after
ourselves. It’s really no wonder that so many of us are tired and run down. What are
some simple things that we can do to improve our quality of life? Drink Drink Drink. You’ve heard it a million times and you’ll
probably hear it a million more – drink more water! Think about it: The human body is 72% water.
A 5% drop in fluids creates a 25-30% loss in energy. A 15% drop in fluids causes death!
At this point in time 66% of us aren’t drinking enough water, so over half the population
isn’t running on all six cylinders to begin with – before things like bad air, bad food
and stress take their toll. It’s not really a difficult thing to remedy.
Just drink one glass of water every half hour or so – or 10-12 glasses of water per day
– and you’ll notice a huge jump in your energy levels. Living Food – Loving Life!. A little known fact is that heating food above
116°F destroys much of the nutrient content. Considering that we already aren’t eating
enough veggies, that’s a fairly substantial problem. Nutritionists recommend five serves
of fresh vegetables per day. How many of us are actually taking that advice? A great way to get the nutrients found in
fresh veggies without spending all day at stove or eating raw celery sticks is to juice
your veggies. Make sure that you own a good juicer (some juicers expose vegetables to
heat created by friction during juicing, which breaks down important enzymes), grab some
fresh vegetables and drink your way to good health. It takes a fraction of the time (there’s
no cooking involved, for one thing) and it’s convenient. You can take your juice to work
and even give some to the littlies for school lunches! Wheatgrass in particular is an excellent source
of nutrition. It’s high in chlorophyll (sometimes described as ‘plant blood’ because it
closely resembles human red blood cell molecules) and has over 100 elements that the body needs.
Fresh grains are another excellent source for vitamins and minerals. Energy In – Energy Out. Exercise is another dirty word for most of
us. The thing is, exercise doesn’t have to be horribly time consuming or mind-numbingly
boring. There are plenty of options. Years ago gyms usually offered weight rooms,
aerobics classes and maybe a tydro-circuit. Now you can add water aerobics, yoga, pilates,
dance-ercise, step classes and a whole range of new workout options. If you don’t really have the time or money
for the gym, or prefer to spend your mornings/nights at home, then try an exercise bike or walker.
I’d be lost without my exercise bike – I set it up in front of the television and peddle
away merrily during my favourite shows. If, like me, you suffer from illness or injury
or your level of fitness is quite low, you might like to consider some invaluable advice
that I got from my doctor: Once you’re physically unfit, and particularly
if you’re also unwell, it can be a mammoth battle to just do the most minimal amount
of exercise in a day. The danger is that inactivity leads to further loss of energy, which becomes
a self-perpetuating cycle until you can barely get off the couch. An excellent way to get back into a physical
routine is to start slowly. Ridiculously slowly, it may seem. For the first couple of weeks,
walk/ride for 5 minutes per day – exactly 5 minutes, no more, even if you think you
could continue. When the 2 weeks are up, increase to 7 minutes, then 10 minutes, 12 minutes…
continue to gradually increase your activity until you’re at a level that you’re comfortable
with. It may sound a little silly, but it works.
In effect, you trick your body into producing more energy. You’re building your exercise
time up so slowly that your body doesn’t really realise what’s happening. Follow
this method and, before you know it, you’ll be comfortably exercising within your limits
every day. So, folks, that’s the basics. If you can
rearrange your life a little to allow for better eating habits and a little exercise,
and if you remember to just drink a glass of water every half hour or so, you’ll be
well on the way to living a healthy life. On a final note, don’t forget to take some
quiet time for yourself. Meditating is an excellent way to minimise stress. You don’t
have to sit around for hours, just give yourself 5 minutes of quiet time every day – even
in the shower, if that’s the only place where you can get time out – and have a
little catch up with yourself. And, last but by no means least, laugh! In
fact, laugh like a loon – the louder the better! You’ll be amazed at how much such
a simple thing can lift your spirits! If You Like the video give it a thumbs up
