A recent study showed that about half of Americans deal with moderate stress. The way people deal with stress varies, but ultimately people want to eliminate their stress. We have compiled a list of suggestions that provide you with 5 Ways to be Healthier & Happier. These suggestions will not only help your mind and body, but you will see a change in how productive you are in getting things done.
DISTRESS- You have got to let go of the things that you have no control over. Why? Because you will spend hours, days and maybe even weeks stressed out over something that you cannot fix and it will eat you up inside… literally. If you find yourself stressed out think about whether not it is something to get worked up over. Nine times out of ten it’s not, so just let it GO! Furthermore, when distressing you’ve got to make time for you. Creating a routine to follow helps you get organized, so you’re not all over the place.
PRACTICE GOOD KARMA– What goes around comes around, so if you’re putting negative energy into the atmosphere it will come back to you and vice versa. Remember the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated. Taking it one step further, try being kinder to others just because it’s the right thing to do; even if they don’t deserve it. W.W.J.D?
GET MORE REST– Having enough hours of sleep does wonders for your body. Not only will you feel recharged for the next day, but you’ll also reap health benefits. Studies show that people who get adequate sleep every night have healthier hearts and a sound mind. Not to mention those who get enough sleep are less likely to be cranky the next day. So, put your phone away because Instagram and Facebook will still be there the next day when you wake-up and GO TO BED!
ACTUALLY, EXERCISE– I didn’t want to write “Exercise” because that’s so generic. If you want to live a healthier life you’ve got to take the initiative to do so. Start by dedicating 30 minutes a day to working out. You can walk, jog or even do at home workouts while you’re watching TV. Refer to the at home workouts on Fit29.com if you need a starting point. Be the change that you want to see each day!
DRINK MORE WATER– 60% of the human body is made of water, so why not put it back in there? Water helps your entire body feel refreshed. Not to mention that drinking water hydrates you after a workout, too. Drinking a glass of water before a meal will help you to eat less.
