In the long haul, there will be a day when technology and wearable computers track all our moments. These devices will tell us what is lacking in our body, and what kind of changes should be done to our daily lifestyle. However, some health habits should be nurtured by us. You should train little ones and ensure that they follow these habits on a daily basis.
With this being said, here are a few important habits you must remember and have.
Eating breakfast would be the king of healthy habits. Why? Undeniably, your dad and mom would have asked you to have breakfast every day. Unfortunately, most of us skip breakfast and consider it as a less important meal of the day. This can be attributed to our busy lifestyle and chaotic way of life. A survey by NPD revealed that 15 percent of females and 20 percent of males between 35 and 55 years of age skip breakfast. As a result, they lose the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast. Skipping breakfast increases the risks of developing diabetes (especially Type II).
Remember the adage: An apple a day keeps the doctor away?
This is absolutely true because the apple is a rich source of soluble fiber. Apples are capable of curing intestinal disorders. And, it controls the amount of insulin in the blood. Few studies reveal that apples can reduce cholesterol, detoxify the blood, cleanse the blood and get rid of skin diseases.
There are tremendous benefits in eating apples. Several journals and white papers reveal that apples can reduce the incidence of Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease. The fruit’s antioxidant qualities and natural fibers make it one of the world’s healthiest foods.
Another important habit you should develop would be “sleep”. Resting at night reduces the risks of diabetes, weight gain, heart diseases and heart attacks. Try to sleep at least 8 to 10 hours every day. A steady sleep pattern will save you from many chronic diseases.
Remember, sleeping is a habit you must develop at an earlier stage in life.
Avoid high sunlight
Last but certainly not least, you should not expose your skin to excess sunlight. This causes early aging and increases the risks of skin cancer. Use a sunblock with an SPF of 15 or above. The Sunblock will safeguard your skin from harmful UV rays. Also, consume plenty of foods with vitamin D. This includes fish, fruits, eggs, and milk.
