5 Ways You Can Better Your Health For Tomorrow

Disclaimer: Blog posts =/ Medical advice.

The importance of healthy eating is not unbeknownst to us. However, often we overlook a healthy diet. Today, make it a goal to decide to choose healthier options. Does this mean you can’t enjoy ice cream or your favorite pizza from the corner restaurant? No!

But life is about balance. And if you are not balancing your favorite treats with healthier, more nutritional options, you are not at the healthiest version you can be.

  • Kale, Spinach + Leafy green vegetables
  • Fruits
    • Fruits are colorful and delicious. The many colors they bear are truly indicative of the health they bring to our lives.
  • Proteins + Fats
    • Can’t forget to include this one.

Daily, you say? Well, not necessarily. But it is good practice. You can always spread out exercise over days in the week.

The United States Department of Health and Human Services, or HHS, recommends the following exercise guidelines: “Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity a week. Or get at least 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week. You also can get an equal combination of moderate and vigorous activity. Aim to spread out this exercise over a few days or more in a week.

For even more health benefits, the guidelines suggest getting 300 minutes a week or more of moderate aerobic activity. Exercising this much may help with weight loss or keeping off lost weight. But even small amounts of physical activity can be helpful. Being active for short periods of time during the day can add up and have health benefits.”1

Ever notice how on days when you’re pent up and stuck at home you’re more sluggish? Perhaps you have more feelings of sadness when spending too much time indoors. Therefore, aim to spend time outside in nature. Enjoy the scenery life has to offer!

A 2020 study found that, “mental health problems that people most commonly experience due to social isolation are depression and anxiety.”2

Thus, spending time outside is good for our mental health. In addition to that, you are likely spending time away from screens which is also a healthy move.

Personal connections and friendships are very healthy for humans! According to the American Psychological Association, or APA, “‘ When people are low in social connection—because of isolation, loneliness, or poor-quality relationships—they face an increased risk of premature death,’ said Julianne Holt-Lunstad, Ph.D., a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Brigham Young University who studies how relationships affect the body and brain.”3

No one wants to face premature death — foster the (healthy) connections you need to have human interactions in your day.

Asking someone to be on their phone less in 2024 is like asking a dog to stop barking. We are attached to our electronics in this day and age because of how much we rely on them to do everyday things — like talk to a family member or email someone from work.

Thus, it’s not necessary to throw away your phone entirely (please don’t do that). Moreover, don’t spend an excessive amount of time scrolling through social media or playing video games.

Spending time outside in the sun and breathing in fresh air is sometimes more important than what Aunt Sally posted on Facebook!
