Boost Your Health in One Minute
By Sara Butler
There are many small changes you can make to your lifestyle that can have a positive impact on your overall health and wellness. In fact, many of these things are so simple they can be done in a minute or less. That’s a very small amount of time that can wield you big health dividends. Here are some ways you can boost your health in just 60 seconds!
Small Changes are Better
With the start of a brand new year, it’s tempting to want to make large changes in your life. But the devil is in the details, and it might be harder to stick with big changes than it is to stick with small changes for better health. Remember, it’s the small choices you make a thousand times a day that will have an impact on your health.
Drink Before a Meal
Sometime in the 30 minutes before you eat, you should drink two glasses of water. This small step can help you in a couple of ways. First, it will help you stay hydrated throughout the day, helping to regulate your body functions. Second, it can help prevent you from overeating when you sit down to eat.
Start Your Day with Protein
An egg is a nearly perfect food, and it doesn’t take too long to fix one, either. They are a source of high-quality protein and they’re loaded with important vitamins and minerals your body needs to function optimally. Take a minute out of your morning to scramble one up and gobble it down. You can put it on a slice of whole grain toast with a little avocado to give it some staying power throughout your morning.
If you can take just one minute every morning to do a couple of stretches, then it can make a big difference in how you feel. It can help to ease any stiffness you feel in the morning in your muscles and joints, as well get your blood pumping to start your day off right. If you can commit to give stretching one minute several times a day, then you can improve your posture, balance, and range of motion. You can also reduce your chances of developing back pain or injuring your joints.
See? It's just that easy to start on the road to good health!
