3 Things that Help Improve Your Health

By Virginia Laird

The struggle to improve your health is real. Becoming healthier won’t happen overnight. Although, it would be nice if that were the case! In all things, baby steps are best. So ... what are three simple things you can do to better your health but not feel immediately defeated?

  • Drink more water
  • Get moving
  • Get some rest

Drink More Water

Water is a vital component for your body. Without it, you simply cannot survive. So why do many people refuse to get enough? No matter what excuse you may come up with for why you choose not to drink water, keep in mind that you cannot improve your health without consuming a healthy amount of water. Most recommendations are at least eight eight-ounce glasses per day. Others recommend half of your body weight in ounces.

Water serves many purposes, including:

  • It helps to keep your body fluids in check

  • It helps control calorie intake

  • It keeps your muscles full of energy

  • It is great for your skin

  • Drinking enough is vital for your kidneys

  • Consuming enough helps move your bowels 

Get Some Exercise

No one said that starting an exercise regime would be easy, but it can be. There is no need to rush out to the gym and throw down money on a gym membership that probably won’t get used.  Just get moving. A simple, faster than normal-paced walk will suffice while you get started. Walking is actually one of the best exercises you can do. Walking is low stress on your joints. Walking can also help clear your mind of any stress you encountered during the day. If you are one that has difficulty walking or exercising without pain, your chiropractor can help restore mobility to your joints, making it easier to get some exercise.

Get Some Rest

While it may not be easy to get enough sleep every night, it is vital. Your body cannot keep up without proper rest. All of the functions of your body get stronger when you get more rest. On the flip side, your body is more susceptible to illness when you lack the appropriate amount of sleep. If you are having a difficult time sleeping, a visit to your chiropractor at The Joint can help you get back on track.
