Practical Ways of Improving Your Health and Wellbeing

In order to achieve a healthy body, you don’t have to spend much or do complicated exercises because there are so many simple and practical ways of improving your health and well-being. Many of us tend to overlook these simple and practical ways of improving our health, and we over analyze things but we lack the application and the willingness to even start doing them. Health does not only involve the physical body but also the emotional, social, psychological and spiritual aspects of one’s total well-being. We all can agree that our forefathers lived longer than modern people, it is because they lived a simpler, active, less complicated, and less stressful way of life.

When we were children, our parents and our teachers taught and constantly reminded us that eating fruits and vegetables is very important, and junk food, as well as processed foods, are bad for our health. But we still follow what we want and neglect to practice healthy eating habits even now that we are smart adults. We can be practical when it comes to selecting the food we eat by starting picking the nutritious food in the supermarket such as fruits and vegetables and avoiding chips, soda, chocolates, ice cream, and other high carbohydrate, high calorie and high fat foods. Low-carb diet has been proven to amazingly lose weight because it inhibits the production of “hunger hormone” called ghrelin, thus you don’t easily get hungry, reducing food intake per day. It is best to concentrate eating real food or good quality and minimally processed food, and the food you buy should not even have a list of ingredients, otherwise it should only be very short.

Exercise is very important to achieve fitness, and there are so many practical ways to engage in exercise without you even noticing it, such as manually doing household chores instead of your appliance at least twice a week, or do short periods of stretching or stationary jogging before heading for work or before sleeping. People who dwell too much indoors are at greater risk for heart attack and stroke, so go outside, free yourself from all the stress and breath some fresh air. Health and fitness apps can be downloaded to help you achieve your goals, so take advantage the benefits of digital technology. There are so may health apps you can download used for counting calorie intake, diet planners, and even health e-books. Download apps for free or paid depending on your choice or preference. For your psychological health, talk to a friend, to your spouse or a professional if you are bothered by something, you’re going through a tough situation or you need to make a difficult decision.
