Looking for Healthy Habits? Try These

By Virginia Laird

When it comes to improving your health, it can be necessary to add a few healthy habits to your daily routine. Health and wellness experts suggest that choosing to maintain a healthy lifestyle is paramount when trying to avoid some of the health issues that plague millions each year, including heart disease and stroke. These experts have provided a list of healthy habits for you to consider adding to your lifestyle right away, including:

  • Go for a swim routinely
  • Go to bed
  • Drink more water

Go for a Swim Routinely

Exercise is an important aspect of living a healthy life. Many professionals advise that adding as little as 20 minutes of exercise each day will do the job. While there are plenty of options when it comes to working out, one of the best low-impact workouts is swimming. Fitness gurus suggest that swimming can burn twice as many calories as jogging, while avoiding stress on the joints. Check you local pool for open swim times so you can begin getting your swim in each day.

Go to Bed

Getting to bed at a decent hour can be one of the most difficult tasks, especially for parents of young children. However, health and wellness experts suggest that making an effort to go to bed early enough to get plenty of sleep can keep the body healthy and well. Sleep allows the body to get a boost to the immune system, which can help fight infections. With flu season in view, making sure everyone in your home gets enough sleep can be the first line of defense to help prevent the flu from taking over your home. If you are not sure how many hours of sleep each member of your family should be getting, check this chart for professional recommendations.

Drink More Water

Health and wellness experts advise those who are trying to make positive changes to their health and lifestyle should make consuming enough water a daily chore. Research suggests that staying properly hydrated can help prevent illness and keep the body functioning properly. Professionals advise that everyone should drink at least half of their body weight in ounces on a daily basis. If you are one who has trouble drinking plain water, you may need to consider finding a flavored water that can satisfy your tastebuds or infuse your water with fruit or something like cucumbers.

Making a priority to live a healthy lifestyle is one of the best ways to improve your health and teach your children the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Start today making these habits part of your routine.
