5 Tips to Live Your Healthier

Creating a healthier lifestyle can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be hard! Start by incorporating small habits into your daily routine. Before you know it, these actions will become second-nature!

Here are five top tips for how to live your healthier from experts at Hawaii Pacific Health’s family of medical centers:

Fresh, wholesome food choices are best. Load up on vegetables and fruits first, then add in high-fiber grains, healthy fats and lean proteins to help you feel full.

Moving your body on a regular basis helps strengthen the heart, lowers blood pressure, maintains body weight, builds muscle mass, stimulates the bones, reduces body fat and boosts brain function!

Too much stress can cause hypertension, stroke and kidney failure, among other health ailments. Luckily, you can lower stress levels through breath work, meditation, massage and other techniques.

Sleep has been shown to lower the risk of injuries, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and mood disorders. For a better night’s rest, try a relaxing routine one hour before bedtime.

A primary care physician, or PCP, doesn’t only treat you when you’re sick – your PCP works with you to manage your health care needs and prevent chronic medical conditions from developing.
