Health is such an over-discussed topic that we can analyze it until we are blue in the face! We can live one type of diet, and find that it’s completely wrong for us. And for those people that really think they’re living a healthy lifestyle, but they seem to feel terrible all the time, is it about undergoing a certain regime or is it about something completely different? Let’s try and unravel the health fundamentals we all need in which to thrive every day.
Drink Your Water!
Yes, it is pretty obvious, but when we live such a busy lifestyle, we can forget to give our bodies an adequate amount of H2O. Water makes up approximately 60% of our bodies, and not only is it great for your internal organs, but it can make a big difference to your skin and you will notice the difference when you are dehydrated. For most people that feel sluggish, we need to ask themselves if they are hydrating efficiently. It’s not a very difficult thing to keep on top of, but if you are very busy, here are some of the best water drinking apps to ensure you get your minimum of 1.5 liters a day. And for those that exercise and sweat a lot, it’s even more!
Moving As Much As You Can
Depending on how much you weigh, you may need to move around more, but if you live a sedentary lifestyle, and commute to the office, before sitting down all day, don’t be surprised that when you hit 40, everything starts to hurt a little bit more! We all need to get up and move around a lot more, and this isn’t a very difficult thing to do, but we need to actively look at if we’re doing enough to get that heart pumping. If we don’t, then we have to take some extra steps, metaphorically and literally!
Looking At Your Happiness
Your health isn’t just your skin and your organs and your muscles, but it’s that grey matter in between your ears. To be healthy, it’s not just enough to go to the gym, but to thrive each and every day, especially in a busy world, we need to ensure that we are of sound mind. And of course, there is no such thing as normal, but we need to feel comfortable in our own skin so that we can enjoy every day the way it was meant to be. Stress and anxiety are so common now that we all feel that we’re thinking outside of our heads. We have numerous pressures placed on us, and it’s hardly a surprise that mental health issues are so widely discussed. Learning how to be happy isn’t an overnight fix, but by adding little changes to your life, you can feel the benefits.
We can overthink diet and exercise, but when we want to function on a basic level every single day, we have to listen to our bodies and minds, but understand the fundamentals that keep us functioning.
