Recipe and Tips for Good Health

By Nutritionwhit

When it comes to health and fitness, it is important to maintain a balanced diet and lead a healthy lifestyle. We need to move towards a balanced routine so that the future years are trouble-free for us. For this, it is important to start out early with the following tips for good health:   Stop Smoking Smoking affects the body and the mind. Once you stop smoking, you can experience certain notable changes such as better looking skin, whiter teeth, better sex and an overall improved way of life. Around 25% of smokers die out of smoking-related diseases such as cancer, heart ailments and chronic bronchitis. Quitting smoking can give a decade to your life. It is never too late to give up this bad habit.   Good Diet A balanced diet is the mantra to good health and fitness. A healthy person starts their cycle right from the stage when they are in the womb. Taking nutritious foods not only maintains good health but also cures various diseases. It is important to consume a nourished diet for properly aiding the metabolic, physical, mental, hormonal and chemical activities of the body. Good food allows the body to repair as well as rebuild itself. Taking fruits and vegetables provides the body with thorough nutrition and makes up for the lost energy.   Drink Plenty of Water Water keeps you hydrated. It is not only recommended for the health of your organs, but also helps maintain the buoyancy of the skin and reduces acne. If you are to estimate the water requirement of your body, divide your body weight by two and get the daily ounce recommendation. This is the quantity of water you should consume each day. At the same time, reduce your intake of caffeine and aerated or caffeinated beverages.   Exercise It is important to exercise for at least 20 to 30 minutes during the day. If not, take a break as you work and divide the exercise time into smaller sessions. Getting immense physical activity helps you to exercise your body. Skip the elevator and go for the stairs instead. Walk to your supermarket, rather than looking for parking space. You can also practice doing household chores, or take out your pet for a walk. If you feel bored to exercise alone, find a friend who is committed to exercising. Exercise can be a great way of venting out stress, especially when you’re bogged down with too much work. Check out my running tips for beginners Enough Sleep Get sufficient amounts of sleep – at least for 8 hours a day. Sleep heals the body and rejuvenates your mind, allowing you to think and focus well. Lack of sleep has been related to heart diseases, colds and flu. Sleep has also been found to help patients suffering from diabetes. Elevated cortisol promotes insulin resistance. Sufficient sleep resists the formation of cortisol, the stress hormone.   Deep Breathing Meditation Deep breathing relaxes the body and mind and brings clarity. It oxygenates the brain, thus dealing with anxiety issues efficiently. Breathe slowly, purposefully and deeply into your body. If there is any place that is tightened, breathe into it. This brings in clarity and allows you to gain insights. Breathing right makes you calmer and happier by releasing pain.
