It is no secret that sleep is important. You may have noticed that sleeping helps you to avoid that tired feeling all day. Proper sleep helps you to concentrate more. Sleep is also a chance for your body to rejuvenate. There are many things going on in your body’s various systems while you sleep.

Not geting enough sleep, it is not only likely that you will suffer fatigue the next day, but your health can suffer too.

Fatigue makes us emotional, stressed, and limits our concentration. Lack of proper sleep can even make us more susceptible to illnesses. Try to get around 7 to 8 hours per night for the best benefits that sleep has to offer.

2. Take In Air And Breathe

It may seem like an unusual suggestion, but do you ever take the chance to just sit and breathe? There are a lot of breathing exercises. Even one session of concentrating on your breathing will leave you feeling more relaxed. 

If you do this at least once a day, you will find that you feel calmer, less emotional, and just generally better. Meditation is a good time to try out breathing techniques.


3. Do Not Always Seek Convenience

For some reason, people feel that they are too busy to cook a proper meal each day. This results in grabbing a quick meal on the way home from their local fast food place. Some grab frozen dinners to toss in the oven or microwave when they get home. While these shortcuts may seem to save time they are unhealthy choices to make.

Readymade meals, processed food, and junk food are unhealthy. They contain more sugar, fat, salt calories than we need. Fast food is often fried, processed and lacking in nutrition.

Try to cut back on these unhealthy foods and instead cook from scratch. It is not difficult to prepare a healthy chicken breast with vegetables on the side for example.

4. Go For A Walk

Instead of putting off exercise claiming that you do not have enough money or time to go to the gym. Take a step out of your front door. You can walk anywhere and this is completely free.

Involve the whole family and go for a walk around the block or to the park if there is one nearby. There is no excuse for not going for a walk and you have plenty to gain from it too.

You will enjoy gentle exercise that will still give you a good cardio workout to keep your heart pumping. You will also be able to enjoy some fresh air, which is essential for the brain and muscles.

Make it a nightly ritual that takes places right after dinner.

5. Drink More Often

We are not suggesting that you go to the bar and get drunk. Instead we mean the opposite in fact. You should be drinking adequate fluid each day. Do you suffer from headaches? You may be dehydrated and need some more liquid in your body.

Every time you go into your kitchen, try to remember to have a glass of water. You go to your kitchen often to make breakfast, lunch or dinner or grab a snack. Try using these activities as a prompt to drink a glass of water as an effective way to remember to stay hydrated.

According to the Mayo Clinic. To achieve adequate hydration. Your urine should be clear to light yellow in color and measure about 6.3 cups.

This will improve your health. And can even have a positive effect on your appearance by improving the quality of your skin!

Take care and be well.
