Feeling healthy and happy with yourself makes life a lot easier, it’s all about keeping a healthy lifestyle and looking great!
To stay 100% healthy you need to stop smoking. Ever since 1960 when the Surgeon General announced that smoking was harmful to your health, people have been reducing their use of tobacco products that kill. Just recently, we’ve seen a surge in smoking in adolescents and teens. Could it be the Hollywood influence? It seems the stars in every movie of late smoke cigarettes. Beware. Warn your children of the false romance or ‘tough guy’ stance of Hollywood smokers. Also, the trend to quit smoking has been slow to follow in France.
Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking water is still one of the healthiest things we can do. Water is essential for virtually every function of the body. The average person needs eight 8-ounce glasses a day. Drink with meals, as well as before, during and after exercise. During exercise cold water is more readily absorbed.
Keep a Positive Mental OutlookThere’s a definitive connection between living well and healthfully and having a cheerful outlook on life. Remember, you can’t be unhappy when you’re smiling!
You don’t have to go down the gym and hop on the tread mill for two hours to stay fit and healthy, there are loads of other ways for those who don’t like the idea of ‘taking exercise’.
Did you know that taking a bit of exercise can help you feel good in mind and body? It’s a great way of getting a healthier lifestyle and making new friends. It can also help you relax more and gives you more energy so you don’t feel run down and tired all the time.
Being a part-time couch potato can mean you pile on the pounds and can leave you feeling that you ‘can’t be bothered’ to anything else. Also, keeping active will help you control your weight.
Health experts say that just half an hour of moderate activity a few days a week can make all the difference — and that can include taking a brisk walk, or cycling. It’s simple to build more walking into your day instead of getting the bus or getting a lift to the cinema or to the shops, just walk!
Everyone looks better when they’ve had enough sleep - they don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing!
Eating a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fruit, vegetables and fibres will also help you feel and look your best. Cutting down on fizzy drinks, chocolates, crisps, alcohol and fatty food like chips and fast food will help you keep your weight down.
Having a daily dose of exercise and fresh air will not only make you feel good, it’ll do wonders for your skin and your body.
Keeping our bodies clean doesn’t take much time, effort or money, and it’s an easy way to look, feel and smell more attractive. Just look at how much better you feel after you’ve washed your hair?
Most people get spots at some point in their lives. Spots happen when follicle channels in the skin – often known as pores – get plugged. Bacteria can then grow in the mixture of oil and cells trapped in the follicle. However, the good news is that spots don’t last forever. Wash your skin regularly with plenty of mild soap and hot water to keep the pores clean. See your doctor if you are worried – most cases can be cleared up.
Try to shampoo your hair every three or four days or every day if it’s greasy. If you have a problem with your hair such as dandruff, try asking someone you trust for a bit of advice, or pop into your local chemist to ask if they can recommend any special shampoos.
It’s all so easy to keep you looking your best!
