Are you getting enough water throughout the day? Many people neglect this act, even though staying hydrated is critical for survival.
Drinking enough water will help with headache prevention and body temperature regulation, will enhance mental and physical presentation, and will keep your tissues moist. When you’re dehydrated, you won’t be able to perform to your best abilities.
Not only that, you might be irritable and dizzy. Extreme dehydration could be fatal! Make sure to drink 64 ounces of water per day.
4. Stress Management
Managing stress is a really important coping skill. While we cannot predict or control the stressors in our lives, we can control our responses.
What are a few actions you can take to feel better when you’re feeling anxious? You could try meditating, calling a friend, taking a hot shower, going for a run, dancing, or playing with your dog.
Take note of the things you do in your life that bring a smile to your face. Now do more of them!
3. Eat More Fish
Fish is full of omega 3 fatty acids and vitamins. Studies have shown that it may lower your risk of heart attacks, strokes, and autoimmune diseases as well as boost your brain health and enhance sleep.
Eating too much fish is not a good idea because certain fish carry mercury. Once every week, cook up some salmon, mackerel, or trout!
2. Limit Sugar Intake
When you eat less sugar, you’ll feel more energized! Sugar can lead to body inflammation, headaches, fatigue, and moodiness. It’s so easy to get addicted to eating sugar.
Kicking this habit is no easy task. Once you do finally kick sugar for good, your body will thank you. You’ll be better able to focus and feel more in tune with your body’s natural hunger and satiation cues.
1. Wear Sunscreen
Just because it’s cold out, doesn’t mean you don’t need sunscreen. Protecting your skin from the sun’s harsh rays is so important!
You have the ability to protect yourself from some types of skin cancers.
Next time you’re about to go for a walk in a T-shirt, apply a generous layer of sunscreen. Look for toxic-free sunscreens with organic ingredients.
When you practice these exercises regularly, they will soon become ingrained habits. It’s time to live your best life. Close your eyes and visualize every detail of what that looks like.
Let me guess, you’re happy and healthy! You will never regret adding a few healthy habits into your routine.
Make sure to treat the biggest star of your life (you) with love, care, and attention.
