Of course you want to live a long, healthy life that involves looking great and feeling great. That’s not too much to ask, is it? No, of course not! Your life should be exactly what you want it to be, but in order for that to happen, you need to remember that you are in control. Every good thing that comes your way is a direct result of your actions, which means if you want to live a long, healthy life, you need to take care of the body that’s going to get you through that long and happy life. Here are a few essential health tips that will really make you feel good.
Laughing is one of the most important things you can do for yourself. It works muscles in your face, improves your mood, and lowers your stress levels significantly. If that’s not reason enough to laugh, I don’t know what it.
Indulging in fiber first thing in the morning means you will be less hungry throughout the day. Less desire to snack means fewer empty calories. It also means your metabolism will be higher throughout the day, which means you will burn more calories and feel better all day long.
Get more sleep. The late night comedians may help you with your desire for more laughter, but they’re taking up too much of your time. Tivo their shows and get to bed at a decent hour to feel rested, healthy, and good about yourself.
Don’t Pamper Your Bad Back
Instead of hitting the couch with your favorite heating pad and the remote control when your back hurts, take a pain pill, get up, and get over it. There is nothing worse than pampering your bad back, which only makes the muscles weaker and the pain more intense. Do some yoga and suck it up.
