The general human psychology prefers to entertain body health increasingly as we grow older unlike how it’s supposed to be: the exact opposite. Having your body a set of healthy habits can do wonders. Here are some of the best tips to keep your body in shape and full of energy throughout the year:
1. Choosing Natural and Unprocessed Food
Processed foods are becoming a daily habit with us all these days. It is easy to cook, instantly available and tasty which lets us ignore its dark side. According to National Cancer Institute, worldwide cases for the disease will rise by 50% by the time 2030 from 14 million in 2016. A lot of doctors and researchers have found processed food a common habit for people diagnosed with Cancer. Apart from losing nutrition, it dampens the immune system thereby inducing carcinogenic pathogens in the body.
2. Turmeric, not Just a Seasoning
Turmeric is one of the most common used spices in the kitchen, but there’s much more to it. Turmeric is best for known for boosting immunity against common diseases due to a chemical called Curcumin. Curcumin acts as an anti-oxidant in the body and works actively against free radicals. Turmeric thus works against common polluting agents we breathe in or come in contact unnoticeably. Consume Turmeric with milk once a day (amount varying upon your body) and you will see the difference, good for the body and good for the teeth! Beneficial, especially if you’re correcting your teeth with orthodontic braces.
3. Daily Exercising and Training
The natural tendency of our body is to adapt to whatever lifestyle it has. However, unlike common misconception, biologically our human body is made for running or using more of our legs. Running and working out daily helps producing white body cells in the body and prevents body aging. However, doing the same exercise or workout would not work after a few days since the body adapts to it. Hence, the routine must be daily and changing.
4. Drink More Water and Sleep Better
The Australian Dietary Guidelines suggest to consume at least 2.6 litres of a day for men and 2.1 litres for women. Drinking plenty of water is great for digestion and utilization of nutrients in food we consume. Also, sleeping regularly, about 7 hours a day is essential for a healthy body.
These habits seem too common but often neglected. Fulfilling them consistently will not only keep you away from seeing your family doctor but also enable you to work, enjoy and live a healthier lifestyle.
