1) Think Positive
To be healthy…think healthy. Your mind gives you control to think anything you want. If you want to be healthy, think healthy thoughts. “I feel great today!”
2) Drink Water
Drink more water! This is the most important and easiest step you can do to improve your overall health. One medical doctor wrote a book consisting of 180 pages on the benefits of water…180 pages! Since your body is about 70% water, you need to constantly replenish your cells, tissues, and organs with more water.
Motion is life! I am not talking about coming to the gym and walking on a treadmill three times a week for 20 minutes. Take the steps or park farther away, any chance you can get...walk, walk, walk. Studies show for every hour you walk, you can add an hour to your life.
Breathe; take in oxygen-rich air from the environment to maintain life. While you breathe, you are alive; it is your main source of energy. Concentrate on taking the world into you with each breath!
He/She who laughs, lasts. Laughter is the best medicine. There must be something to these sayings or they would not have been around so long. Laughter increases your endorphins; your bodies natural painkillers, so go ahead and laugh out loud. “Did you hear the one about…?”
Five minutes a day, before you get dresses, sit on your bed, or chair and think about…nothing. You will have the rest of your day to worry. But for these five minutes push out any thoughts that come in your head, silence your mind. This step alone can make all the difference in your day.
The final step…sleep. You just completed a great day, now you must rejuvenate your body and mind, in order to take on another wonderful day tomorrow. On the seventh step we shall rest! The best position is on your side with your neck supported and a pillow between your knees. Shoot for eight hours. Sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite.
