This one step alone could have a huge impact on your overall health.

Most of us spend the bulk of our days consuming junk food. This of course makes you feel sluggish and strips away all of your energy.

Adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet will make you feel much better. Cut back on the artificial sugar and try to eat plenty of fiber on a daily basis.

2 – Drink More Water

Water keeps your body functioning at optimum levels. Not only does it detoxify your body, but it also keeps your cells properly hydrated.

If you are feeling low on energy, try drinking a glass of water. More often than not, low energy is a sign of dehydration.

As soon as you wake up in the morning have a glass of water. This is a great way to get your body ready for the day. You should also try to have a glass of water before every meal. If at all possible, drink at least a gallon of water a day.

3 – Eat Plenty of Fiber

Fiber is important because it helps you stay regular. Maintaining a regular bowel movement is vital to your overall health.

Just like water, fiber helps flush toxins out of your body. You can get fiber from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

4 – Exercise Everyday

The benefits of daily exercise should not be underestimated. All it takes is 30 minutes a day and you will have more energy and more vitality than you ever imagined.

When you exercise you release what is known as feel good hormones. This is why you will almost always feel better after a little exercise.

When you exercise you increase your heart rate which provides your cells with more oxygen. Something as simple as gardening or playing outside with your children are both great ways to get in some exercise.

5 – Get At Least 7 Hours of Sleep Every Night

When you don’t get enough sleep you have low energy and your brain is foggy. It can also lead to you eating more throughout the day in an effort to stay awake.

While we are all different and need a different amount of rest, for optimum health it is recommended you get a minimum of 7 hours every night.

6 – Don’t Miss Any Doctor Visits

Most doctors want to see you at least once a year for a routine physical. Other checkups such as breast exams may be recommended more often as you start to age.

Seeing your doctor once a year is a great way to stay informed about what’s going on in your body.

7 – Stop Smoking

There is no need to harp on the health risks associated with smoking as I am sure you are fully aware of them.

The moment you stop smoking your body will immediately start to repair itself. You will start to breath easier and you will have more energy.

As you probably already know, smoking is a tough habit to break. I encourage you to take the slowly, but surely approach. Decrease the number of cigarettes you smoke on a daily or weekly basis.

As each week passes you will smoke less and less. After 28 days you very well may be smoke free. Never try to quit cold turkey as it will almost always backfire on you.

As you can see, living a healthier life is well within your reach. Just follow these simple strategies and you will start to experience amazing benefits.
