It is easy to overlook our health and fitness in today’s fast-paced society. We are so preoccupied with our daily lives – family, friends, job, social events – that we don’t take a moment to care for ourselves.
It’s no surprise that many of us are exhausted and exhausted. What easy things can we do to enhance our life quality?
Drink, Drink, Drink…
Drink more water! You’ve undoubtedly heard that a million times, and you’ll probably hear it a million more.
Consider this: The human body consists of 72 percent water. A 5% decrease in fluids results in a 25-30% energy loss. A 15% decrease in fluids results in death! At this moment, 66 percent of us aren’t drinking enough water, which means that more than half of the population isn’t working on all six pistons, to begin with – before poor air, bad food, and anxiety take their toll.
It’s not really difficult to fix. Simply drinking 1 glass of water each half hour or so – or 10-12 glasses of water a day – will result in a significant increase in your energy levels.
Loving Life – Loving Food!
Heating food over 116°F loses a large portion of the nutritious content. Given that we already don’t consume enough vegetables, this is a significant issue. Five servings of fresh veggies per day are recommended by nutritionists. How many of us truly follow such advice?
Juicing your vegetables is a terrific method to receive the nutrients present in fresh vegetables without wasting all day at the stove or eating fresh celery sticks. Check to see whether you have a decent juicer (some juicers expose veggies to the heat created by friction during juicing, which breaks down vital enzymes), then get some fresh vegetables and sip your way to good health. It takes a minute of the time (no cooking, for example) and is more convenient. You may bring your juices to work and even offer them to your children for school lunches!
Wheatgrass, in particular, is a rich source of nutrients. It contains over 100 essential components and is strong in chlorophyll (often referred to as “plant blood” since it closely matches human red blood cell molecules). Fresh grains are also a good source of vitamins and minerals.
Energy input minus energy output
For most of us, exercise is another derogatory term. The truth is that exercise does not have to be excruciatingly time-consuming or mind-numbingly dull. There are several alternatives.
Gyms used to have weight rooms, aerobics programs, and maybe a tydro-circuit. yoga, pilates, Water aerobics, dance exercise, step courses, and a variety of other innovative training alternatives are now available.
If you don’t have the time or money to go to the gym, or if you enjoy spending your mornings and evenings at home, consider an exercise machine or walker. I’d be lost without my exercise bike; I set it up in front of the TV and pedal away happily while watching my favorite shows.
If you, like me, suffer from injury or illness, or if your level of fitness is relatively poor, you might want to consider the following great advice from my doctor:
When you’re physically unfit, and especially when you’re also sick, it may be a challenge just to do the bare minimum of activity in a day. The concern is that inactivity causes greater energy loss, creating a self-perpetuating cycle in which you can hardly get off the sofa.
Starting softly is a wonderful approach to getting back into a physical regimen. This could appear to move at an impossibly slow speed. For the first several weeks, walk or cycle for five min per day – no more, no less, although if you think you can go longer. When the two weeks are over, increase to seven minutes, then ten minutes, then twelve minutes… Continue to progressively raise your exercise level until you reach a comfortable level.
It may sound ridiculous, but it works. You are, in fact, tricking your body into making more energy. You’re gradually increasing your workout time, so your body doesn’t realize what’s going on. Follow this strategy and, before you know it, you’ll be exercising comfortably within your limitations every day.
So there you have it, guys. You’ll be well on your way to living a healthy life if you can reorganize your life a little to allow for improved eating habits and just a little exercise, and if you remember to drink a glass of water every half hour or so. Finally, remember to set aside some relaxing time for yourself. Meditating is a great approach to reducing stress. You don’t have to sit for hours; just allow yourselves 5 min of silence every day – even if it’s simply in the shower if that’s the only place you can get some alone time – and catch up with yourselves.
Last but not least, have a good chuckle! In fact, the louder you laugh, the better! You’ll be surprised with how much such a simple thing may improve your mood!
