We all want to be healthier every day and look into better figure and this is a matter of decision to adopt small changes in lifestyle can have huge impact on our health and wellbeing. Feel healthier and lose weight with the following rules effective and simple.
If you feel healthy and remove excess weight, you drastically reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
To be healthier, take note of the following measures and adopt them to your daily routine every day.
Drink more water
Water plays double role in the body, leads to the last cell elements and valuable nutrients and in return removes toxins and free radicals which causing numerous diseases.
Water hydrates tissues, cleanses the kidneys, provides energy and maintains a correct body temperature. The absolute minimum should be six glasses a day and ideal about 8 glasses of pure, clear water.
Dr. Batmanghelid, author of "Water Cure" states that water cure over 20 diseases and water really is the sustenance of life. Our health, he says, depends on the quantity and quality of drinking water.
Manage your stress
Stress is related not only to mental health, also with the fat from your waist. Cortisol, the stress hormone is linked to the formation of more fat around the waist and waist fat means more health risks and diseases such as type 2 diabetes, breast cancer and cardiovascular problems.
Depression, obesity and stress have a complex relationship, according to the American Psychological Society and these can exacerbate each other what drives sometimes cause emotional eating and binge eating.
Deep breathing, exercise, meditation, yoga and quality of sleep can combat stress and if you can not manage depression and anxiety, consult a health specialist.
Do not avoid breakfast
For me breakfast is essential; a healthy breakfast will load energy to face the day's tasks. Instead of a coffee and a donut, fruit juice and vegetables, skim milk, orange juice, eggs and brown bread will be a great start to the day.
More exercise and physical activity
To be healthier, exercise should be part of your daily activity, not only to reduce risk of disease, lose weight, strengthen muscles and bones; also to improve the figure, relieve anxiety, tension, stress and improve mood.
If you want to be healthier your daily or weekly routine should include physical activity moderate to severe regularly three times a week. The simplest exercise is brisk walking, even 10 minutes a day. But other small efforts also feature, do not use the elevator, take the stairs, cut the grass, etc.
With regular exercise you control your weight, it increases your metabolic rate and feels lighter. Regular exercise is associated with a longer shelf life. For 25 years I jog 3 times a week and when I stop I feel sick. Inactivity is the scourge of the century.
Remember that a negative thought is 90 times more powerful than a positive thought, hence the importance of keeping our positive thoughts minds that constantly repeat to become part of a positive subconscious, thereby act positively and the results we obtain in life, they will also be positive.
Gandhi knew this philosophy and said: your positive thoughts turn in positive words and these in positive behaviors that create positive habits. If you keep your habits positive, your values become positive and your destiny will be positive.
To achieve our dreams is vital to think positive, be positive and believe in yourself.
Sufficient restful sleep
In 2004 the journal Plos One revealed a study showing that lack of sleep raises levels of ghrelin hormone that makes you feel hungrier and decreased levels of leptin that helps you feel full.
Most people need 7 to 9 hours of sleep to allow the body to repair wear day. One study found that people who sleep 6 or less hours gain more weight and tend to be obese.
It is important to reach a deep sleep that is achieved by setting fixed hours of sleep, do not eat dense foods before bedtime, read before watching TV, mute the phone before sleeping, among others.
During sleep, cells are oxygenated, cells are regenerated, skin rests and the body recovers completely
Boost your immune system
A strong immune system is essential to tackle diseases and enjoy high energy levels.
A diet varied, abundant in fruits and vegetables, should be the first step in building a strong immune system. Regular consumption of some proven antioxidants food, such as dark chocolate, grapes, cinnamon, blueberries, whole grains, nuts, dark green vegetables, etc, is recommended.
