Finding a way to relax is one way to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Posters, newspapers, radio, and television commercials, on top of you personally printing a healthy activity chart on your HP Wifi printer (after installing your HP wifi printer driver of course), bombard you daily with new advice on how to live better and longer. Information can change so quickly that it turns your head. Focusing on six simple habits can help you achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Proper nutrition

What you put into your body directly affects your health. According to the May 2011 issue of the “American Journal of Preventive Medicine,” poor nutrition plays a direct role in the development and progression of the disease. Proper nutrition, as stated in the report, includes a diet that is low in saturated fats and high in fiber. The American Heart Association recommends eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fatty fish. Limit sugar and processed foods.

Sport

You can call it sports or games, but physical activity is one of the most important behaviors to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Weight loss, improved circulation, improved lung function, and a reduced risk factor for diabetes, stroke, and heart attack are all benefits of physical activity. Exercise doesn’t have to be a regulated 45-minute workout. Take a walk, play tennis or go swimming. Weightlifting also benefits your overall health.

Water

Something as simple as drinking water affects both your physical and mental health. A report in the August 2010 issue of “Nutrition Reviews” states that water accounts for between 55 and 75 percent of your body weight, depending on your age, and is necessary for the proper functioning and life of human cells. Insufficient water intake increases the risk of kidney stones, headaches, intestinal discomfort, urinary tract infections, high blood pressure, and heart disease. It may also happen that memory and learning ability decrease and symptoms of depression increase.

Sleep

If you want to be able to better control your weight, improve your memory, maintain your mood, reduce your risk of chronic diseases, and fight the common cold, then sleep well. The Medical University of South Carolina reports that all of these benefits come with adequate sleep of seven to eight hours a night. Set a regular bedtime and stick to it. Avoid caffeinated foods and drinks in the evening and make sure your bedroom is quiet and dark, as this will contribute to a deep and good night’s sleep.

Relaxation

Life is full of stress. When traffic is interrupted, when you are late for work, or have a sick child or partner, a stress response arises in the body. You may not be able to control what’s happening around you, but learning to control your response to events can improve your quality of life and help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine reports that stress can contribute to harmful conditions from headaches to heart disease and that managing your stress through relaxation can lower your risk of developing it. All that will help you relax is a good technique, be it yoga, journaling, reading, meditation, or a visit to a friend. Find the relaxation technique that suits you and make it a daily habit.

Spiritual Connection

According to a report from the University of Maryland Medical Center, a spiritual connection to a higher force is shown to improve your quality of life. Spirituality is not necessarily religion, but an awareness of a purpose while you are here on Earth that goes beyond itself. Spirituality often involves practices such as prayer, forgiveness, and social engagement, all of which are beneficial to mental and physical health.
