We should all aim to be the healthiest possible version of ourselves. When we make the effort to stay healthy, we live happier, longer lives. We feel and look better. We combat disease and health problems. If you abuse your body with drink, drugs, smoking, and other bad habits, you’re only asking for problems in the long run. The following 10 things everybody should do to stay as healthy as possible. Enjoy!
Get Plenty of Sleep
Sleep can affect how we function during the day, and our overall mood. If we’re not getting enough of it, then we can suffer. You must get plenty of sleep if you want to be as healthy as possible. Try to make sure you go to bed and get up at the same time each day, even if it’s the weekend.
Drink Lots of Water
Drink lots of water to help flush your system of excess weight and toxins. You should aim for a minimum of 2 litres a day, up to as much as 4 litres. If you exercise, more water is better. Make sure you spread it out throughout the day.
Eat Healthy Food
Healthy food is going to make you feel and look good. It’ll help you to function better. You won’t get that dreaded afternoon slump when you’re filling your body with healthy food. Make sure you’re eating enough to support yourself and that you’re not starving yourself. Remember, there is such a thing as eating too much healthy food. A portion of vegetable stir fry is great, but eating 10 portions can still make you put on weight.
Stay active to release endorphins and keep excess pounds at bay. You can do anything you enjoy, from walking to full on gym sessions. The key is to keep it interesting and sustainable. Consistency will take you far!
Learn How to De-stress and Relax
Stress can be the cause of many things, from weight gain/loss to hair loss. You need to learn how to de-stress and relax if you want to be as healthy as possible. Try not to let outside sources stress you out. Learn how to breathe deeply and just get on with things. You have the power to control your emotions!
You need to have healthy outlets that you enjoy to keep you sane. Make sure you find hobbies that you enjoy. This could be anything, from painting to gardening.
See Your Friends and Family
Seeing your friends and family will give you a huge sense of well being. Many people end up neglecting them and then regretting it when it’s too late.
Get Out of the House
Try to get out of the house from time to time so you can breathe in a little fresh air. Staying in the house is no good for us! Get out there, maybe even go for a walk or a run. You’ll feel so much better.
Tackle Your Bad Habits
Tackle your bad habits one at a time to become the healthiest version of yourself. Find resources that could potentially help you too. When thinking of quitting smoking, many people read vape news to get an idea of what they could do.
Take Care of Your Appearance
Taking care of your appearance will make you feel good. Make sure you make a little effort to get dressed properly and present yourself each day.
If you leave home for an office each day, you’re going to need to take a lot of items with you; a laptop, files, lunch, phone and accessories, makeup, wallet, even a spare set of clothes if you’re heading out to a bar or the gym when you’re done. So, a roomy work bag is a necessity. That work bag doesn’t have to be a standard leather briefcase, though. You don’t have to be the same as everyone else – these gorgeous alternatives will give you a fashion edge, as well as being perfectly practical. Read more

When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it.

Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
