8 Healthy Things You Should Do For Yourself


Listen to “8 Healthy Things You Should Do For Yourself”.

Remind yourself that the habits you maintain everyday matter so much more than the things you do every once in a while. Between work, kids, social activities, and lots of other obligations, finding enough time to practice healthy habits can often go by the wayside. But you don’t need tons of spare time to live healthily. You just need to modify and improve upon things you already do. Use these simple tricks to start living a healthier lifestyle today.

1. Self-Time 

Little solitude in an age when we’re so connected all the time is a breath of the freshest air for the soul. We can feel uncomfortable for claiming time for ourselves without an agenda because we constantly feel the need to be doing something. Giving yourself this time will give your brain a break, let you think more clearly, and allow you the opportunity to get to know yourself sans the digital and social distractions and obligations.

2. Exercise

We all know how important this is, but few people do it consistently. Other than health benefits too numerous to mention, exercise makes you smarter, happier, improves sleep, increases libido, and makes you feel better about your body. A Harvard study that tracked a group of men for more than 70 years identified it as one of the secrets to having a good life.

3. Get out in nature

You probably seriously underestimate how important this is. Walk around, sit in the park and read, or go for a leisurely bike ride. Just being outdoors is good for you in so many ways. Being in nature reduces stress, makes you more creative, improves your memory, and makes you feel happier. 

4. Try meditating.  

Relaxation exercises, breathing, and meditation can improve your state of mind and outlook on life. In fact, research shows that meditation may help you feel calm and enhance the effects of therapy.

5. Eat right for self-care. 

The food we eat has the potential to either keep us healthy or contribute to weight gain or diseases such as diabetes. It can also keep our minds working and alert. 

6. Get a good night’s sleep

If you have trouble sleeping, try relaxation techniques such as meditation. Darken your room more and turn your clock away from you.

7. Clean Your Closet

By “closet” I could also mean your desk, your office, your bedroom, or even your kitchen cabinets or dishes. Cleaning is stress-relieving, and actually a form of mindful meditation, according to some studies. So, kill two birds with one stone by reorganizing your space and practicing positive self-awareness.
