Healthy Numbers to Live By

Alot of times I hear from people that they can not afford or have the time in having a healthy lifestyle.  Each day anyone of us can take just a few small steps each day to lead a life.  Here are 6 steps to get started:

  1. Eating 5 fruits and vegetables – rich  in vitamins, minerals and fiber.  Eating plenty each day can reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease and stroke.
  2. Make a effort to increase your water intake .  Drink plenty of water each day to keep you healthy and hydrated.  Water regulates body temperature, carries nutrients, removes wastes, and cushions joints, organs and tissues.
  3. Have three good laughs every day!  Laughing promotes the release of endorphins in your brain, helping you feel better and have a positive attitude.
  4. Spend 2 hours of less each day in front of the television or on a computer.
  5. Have 1 hour of physical exercise today!  Move your body with physical activity 1 hour each day – walk, bike, swim, dance, run…  Pick activities that you like and that fit into your life.
  6. Last but not least make sure you get your 8 hours of sleep per day!  Re-energize  your body with 8 or more hours sleep.

Start living healthy today.  For further information on healthy living check out our website:  www.livinghealthy1.org
