Health is like MONEY, we never have a true idea of its value until we LOSE IT.
Yet we often ignore health even at the simplest levels when focused on achieving coaching goals, so here are some quick and easy tips to improve your health in the New Year:
- Eat Healthy
Good nutrition is one of the keys to a healthy life. Every diet should be balanced and full of nutrients, with fruits and vegetables at the top of every shopping list. A healthy diet considers minerals, vitamins, fat, carbohydrates, protein, and more. And make sure to say NO to fast food, which is one of the main contributors to poor nutrition. Eat seasonal fruits and green vegetables as much as possible.
- Drink Water
Approximately 70 percent of the body is made up of water, and H2O plays an essential role in staying fit and healthy. Most fruits and healthy beverages (skip the soda, please) contain water that will help the body to stay clean, hydrated, and energetic. Water also helps to flush toxins and waste material from body in the forms of perspiration (sweat) and urine. Fresh, plain water is the most important fluid needed by the body, and we should drink at least eight glasses per day.
Everyone should keep moving to stay fit and healthy. Walking and running are easy ways to exercise, and both are beneficial, especially when done outside in the fresh air. Exercise releases mental and emotional stress and can build up muscles. It also improves heart health and blood circulation. Consider walking for half an hour outside each day.
- Get Sufficient Sleep
Adequate sleep is must to stay fit because it relaxes and rejuvenates the body and mind. Proper sleep also will help eliminate many nagging issues including headaches, restlessness, and problems with concentration, etc. Aim to get six to eight hours of rest each night.
- Put Away the Gadgets
Today, everything can be done online and everyone is surrounded with gadgets. Mobile phones, laptops, televisions, etc. all emit frequencies that can be disharmonious with the human body. It’s also advisable not to use a computer screen in a dark room because it strains the eyes. Minimize use of electronics when possible, and don’t leave a cell phone nearby while sleeping.
