With fall now knocking at our doors it’s time to set new goals and put into place sustainable practices for healthy living. What better way to start the new season than to try these new practices out. If you’re wondering what these practices are we’ve got them listed for you that’ll lead to a healthy longer life!
What you eat and fuel your body with matters. Junk foods all seem good to eat in the moment but will eventually catch up to you. You may not feel the effects of eating badly now but you will in the future. High consumption of sodium, trans fats, and sugars will ultimately increase your risk of developing certain diseases. Eating healthy improves your immune system, helping to fight off sickness and disease. Try implementing a healthier diet with an emphasis on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. You may not see the benefits, but your body will thank you for it.
Cut out the negativity
Allowing negative forces to take up space in your life will only add to your stress and overall mental decline. Prolonged stress can lead to mental and physical health problems. So, get rid of that toxic friend, block your ex that keeps calling and put yourself first. Protecting your peace will help to give you a healthy and sound mind leading to a longer life full of happiness.
Break Bad Habits
In order to raise your life expectancy, it’s time to finally break those bad habits of yours. Having a glass of wine after a long day at work is great, tacos and margaritas with the girls is even better! However, taking part in high levels of drinking daily is not good. Drinking too much can cause strokes, high blood pressure, liver disease, and more. Of course, we’re not saying you can’t have the occasional drink. What’s important is knowing your limit and not going over it. Plus, there are so many other ways to unwind or have fun without even needing a drink!
Vaping or smoking may be a way for you to cope with stress, but they’ll only add to the deterioration of your body. Instead, find healthy coping mechanisms like journaling, exercising, or meditation. If you ever get a craving for nicotine, you can distract your mind with the activities listed above and remind yourself you’re better off without it than on it.
Get Your body moving
Exercise is vital to living a healthy longer life. When you workout it improves your quality of sleep, mental health, and your body as a whole. If you’re someone who wasn’t regularly exercising before, just moving your body for 30 minutes a day can significantly lengthen your life span. So go out for a walk or run, dance along to your favorite songs, or get involved in a recreational activity.
