Author’s Note: What’s up, y’all? To celebrate World Health Day, I will be reblogging a post where I share 6 simple tips to promote physical fitness. Enjoy! ✨
No matter what time of year it is, or how old you are, it is always important that we keep our bodies, minds, and spirits happy and healthy! Now, I know that my most recent posts have been centered on mental wellness and health, but, I think it’s about time that we discuss how we can keep our bodies healthy, as well.
Also, please keep in mind, that this is not an article about me telling you how to get skinnier or bigger. I truly do believe that, regardless of how you look on the outside, the most important thing is that your body is healthy on the inside, even if you are the only one who can see it. As long as you feel your best, then that’s what matters! ✨
So, without further ado, let’s get into the tips!
- Get lots of sleep (just not in class, lol) ✨
Getting a good night’s sleep every night is actually really beneficial to your body and mind. After you get a night full of peaceful sleep, you will feel refreshed and energized, when you awaken. Even better, it will cause you to be able to have better concentration and focus. If it helps, it might even be a good idea to play some peaceful music, while you lay down.
2. Try being more active. ✨
Using exercise as a tool to be healthier can be very successful. Exercise not only keeps your heart and lungs working to their full potential, but it also helps tone (or give firmness to) your body! It even helps to improve your speed, endurance, and lower your risk for medical issues, such as a heart attack, as an example. Hey, sounds like a pretty good bargain to me, am I right?
3. Increase your water intake. ✨
I know. Most people consider to be nasty and tasteless, but, once you get used to it, it’s actually quite refreshing. Drinking water actually brings lots of nutrients to your blood cells, flushes bacteria from your body, normalizer your blood pressure, regulates your body temperature, and, well, the list goes on!
4. Eat more fruit and vegetables. ✨
Alright, alright! Here me out on this. Fruits and vegetables can actually be good when prepared/cooked correctly. As well, they are completely packed with fiber, minerals, and vitamins, all in which experts recommend we consume, every day.
Tip: If you have a favorite vegetable or fruit, or at least one that you don’t dislike as much as you do the others, they try eating that vegetable or fruit, more often then others.
5. Use more seasonings to your food. ✨
Seasonings are a great way to eat more vegetables and other healthy foods! Believe it or not, a lot of seasonings have some major health benefits, such as;
- Ginger, which helps reduce nausea or vertigo.
- Garlic, which keeps your heart healthy.
- Cinnamon, which lowers your blood sugar.
If that’s not a great way to eat your vegetables, then I don’t know what is!
6. Track your exercise and eating habits. ✨
Thanks to something called technology, it is super easy to get an app that helps you to track your exercise and eating habits. Doing so allows you to be cautious of how much your are eating and/or exercising. If you would like something a little more mobile regarding tracking exercise, I would definitely recommend a watch, like the Apple Watch, as it is automatically attached to your wrist, and you don’t have to carry your phone every time you start walking or working out.
Alrighty, everyone! I really hope you enjoyed those tips on How to Keep Your Body Physically Healthy.
Remember, that no matter how you look on the outside, or what others think about you, as long as you feel good about yourself, then that is what is most important. The health of your mindset is extremely important, as well, no matter what circumstance you are in!
Okay everyone, I hope that you have a refreshing, relaxing, and beautiful day! See you next time! ✨
