9 Tips to Living a Healthier Life, Starting Today

healthy lifestyle

There’s so much advice out there telling us how we can be thinner, happier, sexier, more productive, etc. Wouldn’t you prefer to cut through the irrelevant tips and tricks and find something simple and easy that you can apply to your life starting today?

Here are 9 basic, actionable tips that will help you live a healthier life for real.

1.     Get enough sleep at night

A healthy lifestyle begins with a full-night’s sleep. Without enough sleep, you could be left unfocused and unmotivated, not to mention at higher risk for many diseases.

2.     Drink lots of water

Water keeps you functioning—it comprises two thirds of your body after all. With enough water each day, you’ll be more alert and energetic.

3.     Don’t skip breakfast

You may just find that the benefits of eating breakfast far exceed the excuses you make for skipping the “most important meal of the day.”

4.     Go for walks

Improving your health can be as simple as walking up to 12 miles per week. Explore a nearby nature hike, take the stairs rather than the elevator, or go on a simple walk around the block to clear your mind; before you know it, those 12 miles will fly by.

5.     Make a new friend

Friends are there for you when you need them, but they are also good for your health.

6.     Enjoy the sunshine

Don’t get sunburned, but soak in some rays nonetheless to reap the benefits of vitamin D.

7.     Snack on healthy foods between meals

Those in-between meals can either be a boon to your health, or a contributor to your waistline. Swap out high-fat, high-sugar snacks for natural, raw fruits, berries, veggies, and nuts.

8.     Chew your food

By simply chewing your food longer, you’re actually aiding in your body’s digestive process. It will also make dinner more savory (as it should be).

9.     Explore a new hobby

Exploring new hobbies and activities is a great way to reduce stress (which, by the way, has many adverse health effects, both mental and physical).

These 9 tips are examples of the little things in life that, on their own, don’t seem like a big deal, but when you give them a shot they can have a huge benefit on your health and wellbeing!
