3 Healthy Habits You Need and Why

By Virginia Laird 

When it comes to healthy living, experts admit that good hygiene and healthy habits play a key role in promoting good overall wellness. Taking a close look at your current habits can be helpful in determining if any of your habits need to change.  While there can be a lengthy list of habits to have, experts suggest there are a few which should be priority. These include: 

  • Washing your hands often is necessary
  • Having a bedtime routine can improve your sleep
  • Wear sunscreen daily to protect your skin

Washing Your Hands Often is Necessary

It is always a great idea to make routine hand washing part of your list of healthy habits. This is especially true during flu season. Health and wellness experts suggest that washing your hands often can help prevent the spread of germs, as well as decrease the chances of falling ill. It is advised that you should wash your hands after visiting the restroom, before and after handling food, and many other times as necessary (handling doorknobs). Research suggests that those who are washing their hands less than seven times each day are most likely not washing often enough. Keep in mind that when washing your hands is not an option, sanitizer can help remove germs.

Having A Bedtime Routine Can Improve Your Sleep

Each year, millions report struggling with getting a good night of sleep. Health and wellness experts suggest that one way to help improve your sleep and your health is to give yourself a bedtime. This practice can ensure that you get plenty of sleep each night. Research suggests that the average adult should get at least six hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. Along with a bedtime, it is recommended that you should consider a bedtime routine to help your body know when it is time to relax each night. This too can help improve your sleep.

Wear Sunscreen Daily

Health and wellness experts suggest that wearing sunscreen when you head outdoors is yet another healthy habit to begin putting to the test. Wearing sunscreen can help fight against the development of skin cancer and premature aging. These professionals teach that, even though it is not summer, the sun can still cause damage to the skin making it vital to apply sunscreen often. Start keeping a bottle of your favorite sunscreen handy to help you make this a habit.
