Let’s face it, all of us want to live a life that is healthy. However, we end up making choices that are convenient, but not good for our health. It’s not just about the food you eat; there are a host of other factors that affect our health. While there may be a few things that you could compromise on, the below listed, are a few health-related vital factors that you cannot avoid paying attention too.

While all of us enjoy a good night’s sleep, a comforting afternoon siesta, the fact is that most of us don’t get enough for it to help relax our minds. Sleep plays a critical role in mental and physical health, quality of life and also affects our safety. Sleep deficiency affects brain functioning and one’s inner well being – it can lead to the inability to make decisions, affect problem-solving, controlling emotions and also may have an adverse reaction to cope with change.

Real Food that is nourishing
You do not have to fill your stomach. You have to eat food that is nourishing for your body and your brain. Nutrient-rich whole foods are the only way in which your body will find the physical energy to perform daily mundane tasks.

Think Positive
Condition your mind to find the best in a situation you think is bringing you down. Look at a glass as half full as opposed to half empty. Find that silver lining. Thinking negative can affect your health in adverse ways. Thinking positive can, however, help lower rates of depression, leads to better cardiovascular health, it helps lower levels of distress and also lowers rates of depression.

Make it a habit of exercising daily. Moving around, even doing chores around the house can help you stay in shape and keep your mind occupied and healthy.

Get one with nature
Nature has a great way of making you feel alive. Go by the beach, take a walk in a wooded area, watch the sunset, watch the sunrise. Getting close to nature indeed has a host of physical and mental health benefits.
