21 Important Health Tips To Note

  1. Most people are dehydrated (especially in winter areas where you have to heat your home) so do drink 6-8 glasses of water daily.
  2. Got a headache? Try drinking a couple of glasses of water first before reaching for the aspirin.
  3. Inhaling and drinking a cup of black coffee can help stop mild asthma attacks before they get worse.
  4. If water makes you gag, add a slice of lemon or lime. Stick with trying to drink 1 glass a day for 22 days (21 days=new habit).
  5. “To keep the body in good health is a duty. Otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” ~ Buddha
  6. If you’ve never had surgery, avoid cosmetic procedures until you know if your body reacts abnormally to scarring.
  7. If your child is putting on unnecessary weight, look to your own cooking and feeding habits.  Lead by example.
  8. If your child needs to control their weight, start exercising with him – but call it “play” – not “exercise”.
  9. “The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.” ~ Deepak Chopra
  10. Never put a child on a diet. Instead, focus on slowing weight gain until she grows into the weight she is now.
  11. If you hate water, start with 1 glass then make the next 5 soda water.  As you get used to water, start cutting down on the soda.
  12.  To get your child interested in healthier foods, ask her to help you prepare and cook them. 
  13. Step away from the computer. Go do some stretches. NOW!
  14. Instead of that second cup of coffee, wait 10 minutes; then have a glass of water.
  15. Human beings are like car batteries: we start short-circuiting and run out of steam if we don’t keep topped up with water.
  16. To cut down on weight gain from alcohol during the party season, try dry white wine spritzers made with soda water.
  17. Did you know that the higher the alcohol content, the higher the calories, when it comes to wine?
  18. Red wines slow your metabolism down more than white wines due to a higher alcohol count.
  19. People who are too rooted in habit are using the same worn neural pathways. Exercise your brain by doing new things.
  20. If you seem to have low immunity, get your folic acid checked and take it as a supplement.
  21. If you avoid carbs for at least an hour after exercise, your body is forced to burn fat. (Share with your low carb friends.)
Have a wonderful day.
