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:
1. Focus on Healthful Food
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.
2. Enhance Your Exercise Routine
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!
3. Manage Stress Levels
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.
4. Get Enough Shut-Eye
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.
5. See Your PCP Regularly
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.
