3 Tips for Living a Good Healthy Life
By Genevieve Cunningham
A good life comes in many forms. For some, it's the ability to pick up whenever they want and travel the world. For others, it's a cozy home with family around. But no matter what kind of good life you have, there's certainly at least one thing in common: good health. Health matters more than people realize. Without your health, everything about your life suffers. So how can we live a good life of good health and happiness? It's all about the small choices. To get you pointed in the right direction, take a look at these three tips to start using today.
Water is king. The earth is made mostly of water. Our bodies are made mostly of water. It's no wonder that drinking plenty of water improves health significantly. But unfortunately, most of us don't drink nearly enough water. We're too busy with sodas and frappes and smoothies. If you want one easy step toward better health, start by drinking more water every single day. It won't be long until you notice a few positive side effects -- clear skin, easy digestion, weight loss -- that makes drinking more water appealing and easy.
We're surrounded by toxins every day. Don't worry though. You don't have to do any extreme detox or eat a diet made of organic juice. All you really need to do is pay attention. Don't buy foods that are obviously full of waste -- fast food, junk food, processed foods. Buy as much fresh and organic as possible. Try to drink filtered water. Buy skin products that aren't packed full of toxin ingredients. This will take a little research in the beginning, but as you understand the science behind what you're putting in and on your body, you'll be shocked at how easy it is to minimize the load.
You have to put yourself first sometimes. Why? Because if you put yourself first, everything else will still get done. You won't forget about your family or your work. You'll still get it done. But if you put yourself first, then you'll be adding yourself to the mix. Choosing yourself helps you maintain balance, eliminate negativity, and lower emotional and physical stress. It's OK to put yourself first sometimes, so do it.
Living a healthy life is possible. It doesn't take a ton of money or knowledge. It doesn't take hiring personal chefs or trainers. You just have to make a plan and stick with it! Use these tips to help you get started, and you'll be living a good, healthy, happy life before you know it.
