(Akiit.com) Health, they say, is wealth, and to do all that you are supposed to do, you need to be physically fit. Therefore, you must ensure that your body is in top shape. Research shows that productivity in daily activities is directly linked to the overall health condition of a person. These five tips will help you stay in top health all year round. 

  • Avoid stress

Stress occurs when your body responds to any form of demand or threat, usually leading to sleep problems and fatigue if not resolved. Stress is also linked to heart diseases, obesity, migraines, skin disorders, depression, and many more. The wonderful news is that you can live above stress by engaging in walking or swimming activities. These will facilitate the production of ‘happy’ chemicals that will help relax your mind. Also, try to connect with your family and friends to let off some steam. You should also ensure you have adequate sleep to help your body recover and rest your mind. 

  • Embrace fruits, vegetables, and protein

Treat your body right by taking in lots of fruits, vegetables, and protein. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with antioxidants that prevent heart diseases and cancer. They also have various vitamins that keep your immune system in top shape. Vegetables have fibers that aid in digestion and waste expulsion. Proteins also improve your metabolism and keep you fuller for longer. This means that your appetite reduces, helping you to lose or maintain your weight.

  • Drink healthy fluids

It would help if you had fluids to stay hydrated and healthy. Your body needs about 2.7 to 3.7 liters of fluids, such as water, beverages, and other food, daily, for it to function properly. Make it a point to consume a generous amount of water every day. Some healthy beverages include green tea, lemon water, smoothies, black tea, organic fruit juices, and so on. They help you stay hydrated while keeping your system healthy. While you’re at it, protect the environment by buying healthy drinks with sustainable beverage packaging.

  • Exercise is key

Engaging in exercises boosts your overall well being by increasing your endurance and muscle strength. It also helps prevent diseases from attacking your immune system while helping your body relax and release stress. Exercising can be a bit challenging because it requires commitment and consistency. But, you can make it fun by spicing up your workout routine. You can have a dance party, running or walking games. You can also go on a hike or rock climbing. 

  • Be positive 

You should maintain a positive outlook on life at all times. Do not be too hard on yourself and be positive about yourself and the things that you are doing. Whenever you feel anxious or sad, transport your mind to your happy place and relax. Try to live life one day at a time while always keeping a smile. 

2021 seems like a promising year, with the rollout of vaccines for the coronavirus, which ruined 2020 for many. And if the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that your health is essential to living a happy life. So make it a priority to keep yourself in good shape this year.
