Water is essential for our body to function; it is needed to carry out our body functions, remove waste and carry nutrients and oxygen around our body. It helps in keeping the mind alert and aids in detoxifying the body. Therefore, we need to replenish our water intake.
2. Get enough sleep:
When we don’t rest well, we often compensate it by eating more and it’s usually junk food. Get enough rest and it will help you from binge eating to stay awake. Additionally, lack of sleep causes premature aging, and we surely don’t want that.
Research proves that exercising daily brings tremendous benefits to our health, including increase of life span, lowering the risk of diseases, higher bone density and weight loss. Increase, the amount of movement and activity in your life. Choose walking over transport for closer distances, or climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator. Join a workout class that you enjoy, take up a sport of your liking.
4. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet:
