3 Habits You Need to Protect and Improve Your Health

By Virginia Laird

Living a healthy life has a lot to do with the habits you choose to keep. Health and wellness experts suggest that there is never a bad time to begin making some of these habits part of your regular routine. A few healthy habits these experts suggest include:

  • Stop staying up too late
  • Apply sunscreen routinely
  • Drink plenty of water

Stop Staying Up Too Late

Staying up too late can have a negative impact on your health and wellness. Research suggests that where there is a lack of sleep there can be increased illness. Health and wellness experts advise that the average adult should get a minimum of six hours of  uninterrupted sleep each night. However, it is not unusual for some to need more than this. Experts suggest that getting plenty of sleep can require you to give yourself a bedtime. As adults, we tend to try to cram too much into one day, making sure the house is clean and things are prepped for the following day. Experts suggest that when it is time to go to bed, whatever is not done can wait until morning. Making sleep a priority is a healthy habit to have.

Apply Sunscreen Routinely

Applying sunscreen routinely is one of the best defenses against skin cancer. Health and wellness experts suggest that one healthy habit you should begin today, if you don't already, is carrying sunscreen with you at all times. Sadly, far too many adults believe that you only need sunscreen in the high heat times of the year, mainly summer. However, research indicates that sun damage can take place at any part of the year, as well as in any type of weather. It is important to know that wearing sunscreen can also help prevent premature aging of the skin. Start making sunscreen application part of your daily morning routine.

Drink Plenty of Water

Health and wellness experts admit that far too many slight the importance of water, choosing instead soda and juices. There is a great deal of research that indicates the overall health of the body relies on the consumption of water. Proper hydration can help ensure that the systems of the body function properly. It is suggested that you should consume at least half of your body weight in ounces each day. For those who struggle to drink plain water, there are a variety of flavors you can add to water which can help make it sweeter for your taste buds.

Try adding these habits to your life and see how they help you start living healthier.
