Here at Demandforce, we know how important your health is. After all, health is wealth. And while keeping to your prescribed medical appointments and regimens are always a good thing, here are some habits that can help you lead a healthier life.
Up to 60% of the human adult body is water – starting from your cells up to the organs and tissues. Experts advise to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water on a daily basis (more when it’s hotter) or an equivalent of 2 liters or half a gallon a day. The water in our bodies serves a number of vital functions from helping deliver oxygen throughout the body, regulating body temperature, aiding in digestion, flushing out harmful toxins, and even keeping our joints lubricated! Plus, when our insides function well, it reflects on the outside (hello flawless skin)!
Get quality sleep
Sleep has always played a vital role in achieving good health. While most of us abide by getting 6-8 hours of sleep, the quality of sleep you get often more strongly relates to your overall health. Getting enough quality sleep can help boost your immune system, improve memory, get you in a better mood, help strengthen your heart, and even help prevent weight gain. In instances that you were not able to get a good night’s sleep, napping can also work wonders for your health. For children, napping supplements sleep that they need to grow healthy and strong as it aids the valuable physical and mental development that occurs in early childhood. Napping also helps kids from becoming overtired and cranky which can affect their sleep at night. For the adults, naps can increase alertness, boost creativity, and even enhance your sex life – yay!
Eating clean means eating foods that are as close as they are to their natural state – no processed foods as much as possible. Clean foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats and proteins, grain, and fresh dairy products can provide your body with vitamins and minerals, proteins and healthy fats that help build a stronger immune system, improve heart health, and increase energy levels among others.
Yes – playing games is a fun way to keep fit. It can be playing hopscotch with the kids, or just running after a toddler – any form of movement can be exercise. So keep the ol’ bones and joints moving. On the other hand, our elders or seniors can take advantage of mobile games such as Candy Crush to help improve one’s cognitive abilities – games like this require quick thinking and problem solving skills – and slow down any brain-related diseases.
Good personal hygiene is crucial at this time. As such, practicing good personal hygiene can help lessen the chance of your getting an illness. Personal hygiene includes having to brush and floss regularly and see your dentist on a regular basis and also includes proper bathing. A clean body must also have clean surroundings so proper sanitation of the home and workspace is warranted here. By having both clean body and surroundings, the chances of catching an illness is lessened as it stops the spread of germs, it also gives us a much better mood/puts us in a much better mental state, prevents accidents (no trip/fall hazards, or fires due to clutter), and simply does wonders for our overall well being.
Until your next appointment – stay safe and healthy!
