We live in such a fast paced world that we sometimes forget that our health is something that we need to be concerned about. We get so busy with family, friends, our jobs, our fun that we even forget to eat, or we eat on the run.
Do you feel tired or run down? Do you just pass it off as loss of sleep? When you are young maybe you can get away with that excuse, but eventually it will catch up with you. The quality of your life begins early, and is set in motion by what you do as a young child.
Certainly you have heard that you need to build a house on a solid foundation, but have you ever thought about that with what you eat or drink, or generally do to have good health, and to feel well.
Your life can be improved by doing a few simple things. Our body is composed mainly of water, so the easiest way to improve your wellness is by drinking lots of water. With so much pollution, clean water is harder to come by, but you can still find pure sources of water.
One reason that we need water is because of the oxygen content. Our body needs oxygen to live, and it has even been discovered that cancer cells cannot live in oxygen, so maybe the easiest way to prevent cancer is to drink lots of clean water.
It also helps to live where the air is cleaner, and has a higher level of oxygen. If you cannot, then you need to have a lot of green plants, because the chlorophyll takes the carbon dioxide in the air and turns it into oxygen. Therefore, if you want more energy and feel better, drink more water.
Try having a glass of water every hour, and see if your energy levels do not jump. Your stress and anxiety levels should also go down. Sounds like a pretty easy solution for better health and wellness.
Another quick way to better health is to eat your vegetables. How many times have you heard that? But have you ever been told how good chlorophyll is for you. That is why you need to eat your green veggies.
You probably were never told to eat green vegetables, because chlorophyll has more than a hundred minerals that the body needs. Being deficient in a necessary mineral can make the body sick. If you do not like eating vegetables, an easy way to get them is through juicing.
Owning a good juicer is an easy way to provide for good health, but you have to use it. You can experiment with the vegetables, and fruits to get a juice that you like the taste.
Your health will improve with the better nutrition you are getting in the juice, and also with the bad drink that you no longer need to have. Get your vitamins and minerals through fresh juice.
Another simple way to better health and wellness is through exercise, a dirty word to a lot of people. There are lots of ways to get exercise. The easiest, and maybe the best, is just to go walking. You can start at a comfortable pace, and distance, and increase either at your own choice.
The important thing is that you start, and that you keep doing it consistently. Once you get into the habit of doing it, you will miss it when you are not able to do it. Good habits are as hard to break as bad habits.
One of those things that people do not think about is that sweating allows poison to come out of your body. Getting rid of the poisons in your body is always a good thing. You do not need to go to a gym to get your exercise, but sometimes it is easier to get on an exercise program when you sign up for a class with friends who are also motivated to better health.
You can do yoga, pilates, aerobics, dance-ercise, water aerobics, or numerous other choices. There is some exercise that will fit you. As long as you remember that the end result of your exercise is better health, and a longer quality life, then it should be easy to stick to your program.
