Lead a healthy life

Instructions

  1. Embrace holistic health
    Acknowledge the relationship between your soul, mind, and body. Our emotions can trigger behaviors from overeating to aggression, so ask someone you trust to help you find your blind spots. Observe your negative patterns objectively and understand the trigger. Then, replace them with a positive pattern. For example, go for a walk when you get stressed instead of snacking on junk food. 
  2. Get quality sleep
    Most adults need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. Organize your sleep schedule so your body adjusts to sleeping at the same time every day. Keep your phone away a couple of hours before bedtime to allow your brain to unwind. Keep your room dark, quiet, and cool, and take a warm shower an hour before bed. Finish eating 2-3 hours before sleep and finish exercising at least an hour before. 
  3. Take a 20-30 minute power nap in the afternoon
    Find a quiet, dark place. Choose one item at home - a plant, your favorite chair - and focus on that item. Bring all your attention to it, and your brain will find peace and fall asleep quickly. 
  4. Exercise routinely to lower the risk of disease and improve emotional wellbeing
    You need a combination of four exercises to attend to all aspects of fitness: balancing, stretching, aerobic, and strengthening.
  5. Eat healthily; everything in moderation
    Eat a balanced diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in sugar and calorie-dense processed food. Opt for healthy whole foods rather than processed foods. Avoid trans fats, refined carbs, and sugar-laden foods. Read ingredient lists. Rather than counting calories, simply eat less, or until you are 80% full. 
  6. Drink more water
    Pay attention to your instincts. Grab a glass of water whenever you feel thirsty. 
  7. Go for your routine health checkups
    Preventive measures are the most effective; people don’t often die accidentally.
