How to Improve the Quality of Your Life- TODAY!
Healthy habits are critical to your quality of life. It’s one thing living to 80 years old, but it’s another to live healthily-being able to play tennis, golf, and even catch a morning run! The way you live now in your 30’s , 40’s and 50’s will directly impact your health later on in life- KEEP THAT IN MIND.
Here’s a quick punchlist of simple healthy habits you can follow that willl increase your chances of having an excellent quality of life as you age:
1. Monitor your blood pressure. Here’s a startling fact from UAB: An estimated 50 million Americans have high blood pressure or hypertension. But almost half of don’t know it because high blood pressure often has no symptoms.
2. Skinny Does Not Mean Healthy. Just because you can eat anything you want and not put weight on, it doesn’t mean you are a statue of walking health. Skinny people also may have high blood pressure, diabetes, artery blockages, high cholesterol… you get the picture. My advice: schedule a physical with your doctor and get yourself checked head-to-toe. To read my article on Skinny Does Not Mean Healthy you can visit this link: http://tinyurl.com/c54omc
3. Don’t ever stop moving! I can’t stress this enough. Once you start sitting on the couch for long periods of time, your muscles are going to stop working properly. “Shutting your body down” , an article I have written, has been published internationally by ezinearticles.com – here it is:
4. Know the numbers. Roughly 3,500 calories = 1 pound of fat. FDA recommends 2,300-2,500mg of sodium daily. Daily caloric intake should be 2,000-3,000 depending on how physically active you are and your current state of health. By knowing the numbers, you can make healthier choices when dining out, heatlhier choices when grocery shopping, and can more easily control your weight as you grow older.
