For those of us who have long had the goal of making our lives healthier, there is good news that we can actually make significant strides towards that goal today. Four uncomplicated steps can set your goal in process today.
- Go for a Walk: Many people erroneously think that they must have an extreme workout regime to gain any benefits. In reality, as little as 20 minutes of brisk walking is beneficial to your health. Best of all, walking requires no special equipment or gym memberships. So instead of watching reruns after dinner tonight, consider lacing up your sneakers for a quick walk around the block.
- Include a Supplement: Try as we might, few of us have a perfectly balanced diet. In your quest to achieve a balanced diet, you may find that adding a supplement may be a great help. Avoid supplements that are filled with artificial ingredients or make exaggerated claims, and instead seek out a plant-based supplement. One good choice is a fermented kale powder. These kale powders can boost your diet with all the detoxifying, disease-fighting powers of kale in the easy, concentrated form of a powder.
- Add and Subtract: It can be overwhelming to think of changing your entire diet at once. Rather than overhauling everything at once, choose one food you can subtract from your diet and choose one new food to try adding to your diet. For example, consider cutting out sugar for a couple of weeks and note how you feel. At the same time, try something new like Greek yogurt. With little pain or effort, you will soon have given your diet a healthy make over.
- Wear Sunscreen: Don’t make the mistake of thinking that just because you are not at the beach means you don’t need sunscreen. Sunscreen is a powerful tool in the fight against skin cancer. All exposed skin should be covered in sunscreen each day, even the cloudy days. Choose a mineral-based sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
