5 Ways You can be Healthier Right Now
Here are my 5 top tips to be healthier right now.
1 – Drink a Big Glass Of Water – Hydration is super important to help your body to function at its best. Water is great for staving off food cravings and will actually allow your body to release excess fat faster.
2 – Get Up From Your Desk and Go for a Walk – We spend way too much time sitting. Get up and move around as much as possible. File things one item at a time. Go and see a colleague instead of calling, or just take a lap of the office to go get a glass of water (see item 1). The more you move the better you will feel (there are some great free workouts on various youtube channels to help you out!).
3 – Sit Up Straight – Good posture helps you to breathe more easily (See item 4), avoid back pain, feel more confident and increase concentration. It will also make other people see you as smarter and more attractive!
4 – Take a BIG Breath – Lack of oxygen can make us feel sluggish and sleepy. Oxygen is essential for energy so by taking a few big deep breaths we can immediately feel more energised.
5 – Finally, Phone a Friend – Research has shown that our social network is vital to our health. People who didn’t have strong relationships were shown to be less healthy. Chatting to friends makes us happier (and therefore less likely to reach for the comfort food) and when we have their support we tend to reach our goals quicker and easier.
