J ust thinking about the ways to make yourself healthy cause you to get sick? Certainly, you can set aside some five minutes of your time from here and there, isn't it?
Anyway, below are the 5 ways to get you on the right track for having a good health.
Dump the drugs
Check thoroughly you med cabinets and throw all your expired medicines. Medications are not as effective as they are after their expiration.
You've probably heard a few ways to squeeze in more activity throughout the day like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or walking around your office for a few minutes when you can.
Exercise your brain
Research shows working out your brain can make you sharper and could also reduce the risk of developing dementia, including Alzheimer's disease. Start a little Sudoku or a crossword puzzle after dinner or during your lunch break - you can always finish it later.
Stretch as you shower
It's the perfect place, really. The hot water helps loosen up your muscles so you can get a good stretch. Stretch your hamstrings, quads, and arms. Maybe do a few shoulder rolls as you shampoo! You'll feel less tension as you start your day.
Take a breather
Grab a quick minute to just close your eyes and focus on your breath. Count to 10 as you slowly inhale through your nose, thinking positive thoughts. Exhale through your mouth, again counting to 10. This time release all the tension and stress out of your body. Repeat if you have a few more seconds.
