One of our top goals in life should be to stay healthy and live a good life. Being healthy is more than essential if we want to achieve our ambitions and plans. However, being healthy is more than just keeping fit and eating the right food. It involves having an active lifestyle and a good emotional health too. Here are the top ten tips for having a healthy living which you can begin with.

  1. Watch out for your weight: It may sound like a cliché, but there is truth in every cliché. Maintaining a healthy weight and not becoming overweight will save you plenty of health problems and risks. It’s not only about the actual threat to your health, but also about your appearance – the side effects of being obese are depression, anger, low self-esteem and others.
  2. Stop smoking: If you are a smoker, realize that this is a bad habit and the interconnection between smoking and cancer is scientifically and medically proven. Avoid smokers and you will be saving your life.
  3. Eat nuts: It’s a great idea to always have a packet of some nuts in your bag. It’s a healthy snack which will give you plenty of proteins and nutrients and increase your memory, productivity and concentration. Add to the packet some raisins too.
  4. Drink water: Make sure you always have a glass of water before eating. This will help you regulate your weight and prevent overeating too. It will also help your digestion. During the day you need at least a liter of water.
  5. Sleep 8 hours: If you are between the ages of 20 and 55, you need approximately 8 hours of sleep a day. Enough sleep is essential for a lot of things – concentration, productivity, memory, blood pressure, etc. It reduces the risk of depression and heart attack too.
  6. Breakfast is vital: Never skip breakfast, even when you are in a hurry. It’s the most important meal of the day and it has to give you plenty of energy. Cereal, fruit or toast is the best breakfast.
  7. Move: You need exercise on a daily basis, not just once a week. If you work in an office, don’t forget to take short breaks just to stand up and stretch your legs a little. Do exercise at home whenever you have 5 free minutes.
  8. Be happy, smile and laugh: Easier said than done, but focusing on being happy will do wonders for your health and overall emotional state. Surround yourself with happy people who love having a laugh and you will lower the levels of stress considerably.
  9. Think positive: Positive thinking will give you more than you think. Focus on the good things that you have, imagine a bright future and you will achieve it easier.
  10. Be happily married: It is proven that happy couples live longer and are generally much healthier.

    Great tips! The plus-size blogger in me wants to state that these side effects -> “of being obese are depression, anger, low self-esteem and others.” largely stems from being subjected to ridicule by others (and not entirely a health-specific issue,) but otherwise this is a great list to live by regardless of size. :)

    Great tips! I’ve heard some of these before (though I didn’t know about the nuts), but it’s good to put them all together and think of all of them as contributing to our health. Thanks for sharing and for linking up to the Write Mama blog hop. :)

    Amazing tips! It is always a pleasant surprise when I get into my “healthy” kicks and it is as simple as increasing the amount of water in my diet, adding nuts and fresh veggies into my diet, getting enough sleep, exercising and/or eating breakfast instead of skipping it! Really good post! It really is this simple!
