Something that not everyone knows about daily health is that it starts right when you get up in the morning. Everything you do during the day will affect your health and that is why you need to do as much as you possibly can to ensure a healthy lifestyle. Some of the things that you need to do each day are get enough sleep, exercise in the morning, eat breakfast, lunch and dinner, drink lots of water, and make sure your body is ready for the day. I know you understand why most of these are important but the one thing I bet you have questions about is how to get your body ready for the day, right? Well you are in luck we will start with that topic right now.
Get your body ready for the day
By getting your body ready for the day I am simply talking about doing exercises, eating breakfast, taking a shower, brushing your teeth and applying lotions or creams to keep your skin healthy. This step is very important and should not be overlooked.
Get enough sleep
Most people get around 6-7 hours of sleep per night and that is fine if that works for you, but for those who are sleeping those hours from 1-8 need to change that. The best time to fall asleep is 10-11 and the best time to wake up to get ready for the day is between 6-7. This will ensure a full 8 hours of sleep.
Eat healthy meals
Eating healthy is the main reason you will be healthy. Often times people think as long as they exercise they will be healthy and it doesn’t work that way. What you eat is what you are and that is never going to change. I recommend eating 3 meals each day with a snack in between each one and a cup of fruit for dessert. This will ensure that your metabolism is up the entire day which will help you burn calories and digest the food much better.
Drink lots of water
If you are only drinking 5 glasses of water each day then you need to drink more. Most doctors and professionals say 8 glasses is enough, but if you ask me you should at least be drinking 12. 3 glasses in the morning, 3 glasses for lunch, 3 glasses before dinner, 2 glasses for dinner and one final glass before bedtime.
Something most people don’t do is exercise daily and this is a big mistake. The first thing you should do when you get up in the morning is do a small exercise of some kind. It doesn’t matter if you do lunges and pushups for 30 minutes of if you ride an exercise bike for the same amount of time, the whole purpose is to be active early in the day in order to get your heart rate up and moving oxygen throughout the body.
Following these 5 daily health tips will really benefit your life and the most important thing that these tips can bring is long lasting health.
