Healthy Living Tips

Here are some basic healthy living tips I came across recently. They are pretty simple and the great thing is they are easy to start little by little. Sometimes we think getting healthy entails hours of strenuous exercise and eating habits that offer no enjoyment. These tips can be easy to use to make small healthy choices:
1. Food and Drink Tips:
Always eat breakfast. Even if it is a piece of fruit. Eating breakfast kick starts your metabolism for the day.
Drink lots of water through the day. Cut down on sweets, begin by eliminating one a day or week. Limit fried food, begin to use a little less butter for cooking and taste.
2. Exercise:
Move more! Park further away in the parking lot, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Any movement counts as exercise. Take a 10 minute walk, you will be surprised how good you feel,
3. Sleep and Rest:
Try to get one half hour more sleep a night. Take a 10-20 minute "power nap" during the day, it will revive and refresh you more than a deep hour long nap.
4. Pamper Yourself:
When you've made some good choices, reward yourself. Buy a scented lotion, paint your toenails, soak in a bubble bath. Sit outside in the sun for about 15 minutes, the vitamin D is good for you and the light will brighten your mood.
Remember, your body is the house you live in, take care of it and nuture it. If you take care of it, it will take care of you in the years to come!
