1. Drink Water
We recommend drinking plenty of water every day regardless of how hot the weather or your level of exercise. Water is essential for a healthy body. For more info, check out this website https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health/healthyliving/water-a-vital-nutrient.
Tip: Each morning, fill an appropriate size water container and keep it with you all day. This will help you keep track of how much water you are really drinking.
2. Proper Posture
Be conscious of your posture and movements throughout the day. Are you slumped at your desk all day? Are you spending long periods sitting in a car or getting in and out of a car often? Regular stretches and exercises can help mitigate problems arising from poor posture. You can ask your Chiropractor for more information.
Tip: Have a short break at least every hour to have a drink of water and run through some stretches for a few minutes.
3. Eat Healthy
A healthy balanced diet is the foundation to good health. Eating a balanced diet not only makes you feel better and have more energy but it also assists with how effectively your body repairs itself. A healthy diet means your body isn’t put under unnecessary stress and helps it to function properly. More information can be found at this website
Tip: If you are having something from the “discretionary” list every day, it’s not discretionary. Discretionary is more like one thing once a week or longer!
4. Get a Good Nights Sleep
Sleep is essential for good health.
Read that last sentence again… And again.
Sleep is so important to our health but we often don’t take it seriously enough.
