By Virginia Laird
Now is always the time to begin taking your health seriously. Research suggests that far too many "wait until tomorrow" to begin improving their health, only to find that this magic day never arrives. Health and wellness experts admit that the best thing you can do to improve your health is to take a distinct and deliberate step to make a change (or two). A few things these experts suggest you can do to improve your health include:
- Start drinking more water
- Go for a walk daily
- Give yourself a bedtime
Start Drinking More Water
Although there are millions who prefer juice, soda, and other calorie loaded beverages to stay hydrated, these are not the healthiest choices you can make. Health and wellness experts suggest that you begin to choose water over all other beverages to help keep you healthy. Research indicates that staying properly hydrated can help flush toxins from your body and assist the body in functioning properly. It is suggested that you should drink at least half of your body weight in ounces daily to maintain proper hydration. If you are one who prefers other beverages, it is suggested that you look for a flavored water instead of soda and juice.
Go For A Walk
Health and wellness experts suggest that exercise is a vital part of improving your health. There is no need to believe that you need to spend hours on end at the gym. Instead, it is advised that a walk through your neighborhood can do the job. Health and wellness professionals advise that exercise should be a part of your week at least four times each week. Start today planning for your exercise to help you begin getting your health moving in a positive direction.
Give Yourself A Bedtime
There is plenty of research to suggest that sleep is imperative in keeping your health in good standing. Health and wellness experts advise that where there is a lack of sleep there can be a plethora of issues including increased stress, issues with blood pressure, and much more. It is suggested that the average adult get at least six hours of sleep each night. For many this is only possible as you give yourself a bedtime and stick to it. For many, it may be a struggle to make yourself go to bed rather than finish checking off items on your list of to-dos. However, it is best to know that all of your items will be there after you have had some sleep.
With this advice in your hand, you are now ready to take control of your health and start changing it for the better today.
