Living in a world in which we are constantly bombarded by disturbing news has become a real struggle and the impact is most of the times borne by our physical and mental health.
While some claim that a regular activity such as drinking coffee, for example, is healthy, others claim the consuming the nutritious drink will only put your life at “great risk”.
No wonder we feel more and more confused and restrained to do or to act in a certain way, because no one is able to provide us with a brief and simple guide of what we should / shouldn’t do in order to live our lives happier and healthier.
Studies have shown there’s a powerful connection between gratitude, happiness and our general well-being.
Most of the times, people become “stuck” in tricky situations which don’t end up the way they wanted them to end or in journeys in which we have failed to achieve a certain goal.
Long story short: we forget to express our gratitude when it comes to the most important aspects of our life, such as health and family.
Things to Improve Your Everyday Life
We all have busy and demanding lives, but the benefits of working out are undeniable.
Exercising regularly is great for your health and self-esteem.
Try to transform this into a daily routine and not just because the New Year’s Eve party or the summer season is right around the corner.
The easiest way to start is by… walking, because by moving, you will release the endorphins.
Studies show that walking at least three kilometers per day, lowers the risk of suffering a stroke at a young age.
Make sure to take a well-deserved break every once in a while
Most of us tend to “fast-forward” our lives, jumping from one activity to another, skipping our lunch break because we are scared to death of those nasty timelines.
Our time only becomes lost when we try to function like cars, hoping our energy and efficiency will defy the natural laws.
During those times when you feel stressed or exhausted, learn to give yourself a few minutes to regain energy and balance.
Stop whatever you’re doing and step away from those things that cause great stress, until you start to feel a little bit better.
A few breathing exercises can work wonders…
Create & Respect Your Own Resting Schedule
Sleeping a certain number of hours will not help you that much.
In exchange, trying to fall asleep and to wake up at the same hours every single day is vital.
A good night sleep will give your body the chance to heal and regenerate.
Drink More Water
Water is probably the most effective weapon in terms of combating toxins.
The right amount of water will stabilize body fat percentage is a contributing factor to living longer.
Reduce the causes of stress or depression in your life
Stress/ depression have negative impacts on the human body and especially on the heart.
Learn to live your life as balanced as possible, ignoring anything that might stress you.
Any form of smoking is harmful, whether you inhale or not.
While cigarette companies claim that smoking will never lead to cancer, this particular vice is very harmful and can lead to premature death.
In conclusion, life is too short to rush or to impose ourselves irrelevant things such as “I should eat healthier” or “I should start exercising”.
Shrinks believe these sayings will only engage us in a vicious circle so start eliminating those thoughts by replacing them with “I wish to be healthier”.
