A healthy person is one that has a healthy spirit and a healthy body. To achieve all this, you need to actually do something, as time does not forgive anyone. As time passes, the cells in your body tend to get old and die, and your body doesn’t always replace them.
To prevent an early aging and to help your body stay fit for a longer period of time, there are some tricks that you can do. Here it is:
Change A Little
You don’t have to make very big changes in your lifestyle to be healthier, but you can start out with something little, and soon you’ll see the benefits. You can introduce more vegetables into your diet – something that you like, like carrots for example, that you can have as snacks or you can buy a puppy and you’ll see how this changes your life.
Pull Your Toes
This is not a joke, as this is recommended by doctors and trainers. Lie down on your back, get your feet up and grab the toes with your hands. It may seem a little bit harder when you first do this, but you’ll get used to it very soon. This is a move that will help you improve your blood flow in your feet. It’s known that after a whole day spent in shoes, your feet can be cramped. It will make wonders for your feet, as the circulation will flow naturally, and the nerves and muscles will relax, removing the potential pain in your back, hips or knees.
Keep the Linens Clean
You’ve heard specialists talking about mites for sure. The place where they like to stay is the bed, and this can cause severe allergies. To prevent this from happening, and to make sure you remain healthy, wash your linens every week. Change the sheets and the pillowcases, and wash them with very hot water. This will kill any bacteria or mite that hides there.
When You Fly
Whenever you travel by plane, use the air vent that it’s positioned above your seat. There comes down filtered air and it will help you keep away any bacteria or germs that run freely in the airplane environment. It’s a small barrier, but it is one, and it proves to be efficient, allowing you to breathe clean air.
Move A Little
You’ve heard about jumping jacks, right? Make 25 of those every day. Even if it is for a brief period of time, it will improve your blood flow and your breathing. With every jump you make, your level of stress will decrease and soon you’ll experience a change in your mood, for the better.
Keep It Silent
There are some people who say that your bedroom should be free of any electrical device, for a sound sleep. It’s also true that if you keep your phone on ringing and you set it right on your nightstand, you’ll hear whenever a mail gets in, or a message, or a notification. Keep your phone silent at night, this way you’ll sleep without being disturbed and you’ll really feel revived in the morning.
Down The Noise
It’s improperly to call it noise, but it can be viewed so when you are listening to music in an extremely high volume. After some decibels, your brain will still perceive the music, but it will be annoying, at least. Your ear was designed so that the optimal level is around 60 decibels, so use your headphones with this level.
Relax and Sleep
It’s a common fact that people who are stressed will have a bad sleep. Try to relax before falling asleep – breath in and out, let your mind relax, don’t think about what you’ll do tomorrow and enjoy the comfort of your bed. It’s not easy to start, but you’ll get used to it after a few times. This will allow you to get your 8 hours of sleep without worrying and thinking about different things. Relaxing is of utmost importance for a proper rest.
