Your body relies on you to make smart lifestyle choices to ensure overall wellness. Following unhealthy habits, such as eating poorly, drinking excess alcohol and neglecting to exercise and follow a normal sleep schedule can result in weight gain, unnecessary stress and debilitating conditions down the road.
To live your life to the fullest, we recommend prioritizing the following healthy habits to increase your health and promote longevity:
1. Healthy eating
Removing the refined sugars and processed foods from your diet and replacing them with more nutrient-dense options can benefit your mental and physical health, according to Wellness Mama. Follow a wholesome, balanced diet that’s full of lean proteins, vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds and dairy for optimal wellness.
2. Water consumption
Instead of drinking soda, sweetened teas and other sugary beverages, take a step back from the sweets and start consuming more water. While you’ll get a lot of water from the fresh fruits and vegetables you eat, you still need to consider making water your main beverage of the day. It’s like a natural detox that cleanses and nourishes your system.
3. Physical activity
Regular physical activity helps you maintain a healthy weight, strengthens your bones, improves mental clarity and helps reduce your risk for developing chronic conditions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults should dedicate at least 150 minutes to moderately intense aerobic activity, plus two days set aside for muscle-strengthening exercises every week.
4. A normal sleep schedule
Heading to bed at the same time each night and following a normal sleeping routine is key to overall health and wellness. According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults aged 26 to 64 years old need between 7 and 9 hours of rest each night. Adults aged 65 and older should aim for 7 to 8 hours.
5. Taking supplements
You should get most of your vitamin and minerals from the foods you eat, but taking a supplement can fill in the gaps. A multivitamin tablet, or a specific vitamin recommended by your doctor, can improve the absorption of the minerals in the foods you’re eating and provide additional benefits such as improved hair, skin and nail health, boosted immunity and more.
