Giving Your Health a Time Part 2 of 2

Here are some way to live a healthy and stress-free life.


Enroll your self to a nearby gym. A one-hour three times a week work out at the gym would be fine.

Attend aerobic classes to improve you body endurance – yoga, steps, zumba, cycling are great ways to do this.

Some gyms do not have such classes but that does not mean you should not do them.

You can still do a lot of things inside the gym like doing running on the treadmill and other cardio exercises. You can do that plus lifting weights.

Joining a monthly running event at your community can also do a big part to your health.

Just remember, if you are not used to it, start on he lowest distance available then maybe next month or 2 you can upgrade yourself to a higher distance.


Relaxation is a part of eliminating stress. Busy people need to learn to do relaxation exercises. If they can afford it, they can get a massage in their favorite spa once or twice a month. A good spa session is a great way to fight stress and give more points to your health.

Tip: Find a masseur that gives good best massage and stick to that person.

Food and fluids

A balanced diet is very important too. But more than that, you should also make sure that you drink lots of liquids the whole day – eight glasses a day as they say.

Of course, you should also limit your sodas and alcohol. Always drink them moderately.


6-8 hours of sleep is necesary. Your body is not a machine! Your body needs to rest and recharged. Sleeping allows our body to rejuvenate and restore itself. It helps the body to create new cells. Sleep deprivation is one of the biggest causes of premature aging. Who wants to look old?

Health Check-ups

As we grow older each year, our body needs to be checked more regularly.

Usually, health problems begin to show as we reach our 30s.

An annual check-up is recommended when you reach that age. Twice a year if you’re over 40 already. And for the senior citizens, a quarterly check-up is very optimal.

Apply for health care cards or health insurance to avoid paying for large medical bills whenever you get sick.
