Age is just a number, as most people say these days. You can be well over 50 but would still be partying like a 21-year-old in college.
Both of these options are connected, though; if you are a healthy, senior individual with good health, then chances of you having the same energy levels as that of a teenager are pretty high. It all depends on your health and how young your soul is.
On the other hand, if you don’t take care of yourself, then those changes can be reduced by a significant margin, and you’ll be left with a very detrimental life that could impose a lot of danger to your health.
Think about it, is age just a number? Everyone has different opinions regarding it. But you could be the person who says yes! Just remember to take of yourself because, for you, you should always come first.
People need to realize that as they age, so do their bodies. The organs you had while eating double-patty burgers with extra cheese as a young adult will not work the same in your old age.
Your body is your temple, and it is in your best interest to always take care of it. Following are some tips on how you can optimize your health in the early years of your life so you can afford a graceful future.
1. Morning Workouts
Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise. We have all heard this famous saying, but not many of us put it into actual use. Getting a full eight-hour sleep and then waking up at dawn benefits the mind and refreshing the soul.
Science even backs this up! Human bodies are very diverse, but the one thing that every human must do is exercise. Morning jogs and workouts can be very useful for the whole system if you wish to live a healthy future.
It is always advised to exercise on an empty stomach so, make sure you eat your breakfast (the most important meal of the day, mind you) after you’re done sweating out the harmful fat.
2. Breathe In, Breathe Out
You must understand that most things aren’t in your control. Fate controls everything, and you can only pray for luck to be in your favor.
Stressing out or getting anxious over something is very harmful to human health, and it is a proven fact that 80% of the stress we take is pointless because almost all of the time, the resulting factor is in our interest.
Anxiety can wear a person out. It can cause your blood pressure to rise, which can lead to future heart problems. It can induce depression, insomnia, stomach aches, and even fertility problems! Stress and can cause many adverse effects on a person’s body.
Relax, calm down. Everything happens for a reason. It’s your story, and you’re the author. Take charge of your life and be happy about everything because closed doors are the universe’s way of protecting us.
3. Keep Your BMI In Check
BMI is short for Body Mass Index, and it is a way of telling whether our body is in good shape or not. It is a graphical representation of the current health conditions of our body. A graph is plotted against the weight with the height.
If the resulting point falls below 18.5, that means that a person is underweight. If the result is between 18.5 -24.9, this indicates an average weight-to-height ratio and specifies a healthy body.
An overweight body is suggested if the ratio results in anything more significant than 24.9. It is always advised to keep your weight in check and to make sure that you maintain a normal BMI.
There are many BMI calculators available online that you can use.
4. Get Regular Checkups
It is in every person’s best interest to get their quarterly health checkups done by their doctors. This helps in detecting any abnormalities from the first stage. Eradicating any issue from the first phase is more accessible and less expensive than letting it worsen as time passes.
Most people are scared to go to the doctors because they are afraid of what they might find, so they find it comforting to live with it. To ensure a better and healthier future, every person should take this point seriously and make the most of their prime age.
5. Show Your Bones Some Love
Since we were young, our guardians always advised us to drink more milk and avoid fizzy drinks. Those who took this advice are living better than those who didn’t. That’s because now that you’re in your 30’s, your bone density is at its peak.
Getting necessary amounts of calcium and vitamin D can help prevent your bones from going porous and ensuring there’s no pain from weakness.
Not only this but your teeth will be happy too. For the longevity of your teeth, apart from flossing and brushing them for three minutes, you should increase your take on milk, cheese, and eggs.
In addition, take a walk under the warm sunlight that comes after dawn.
6. Don’t Get Too Sweet
There is a reason why sugar is notorious for being “white poison.” Every doctor suggests a small intake of sugar for kids. Why? Well, that’s because it causes their blood sugar levels to increase. Now imagine what would happen to people in their 30’s.
Eating a lot of sugary food can increase body fat, which could host many other dangerous diseases, like diabetes.
If not treated, it could lead to removing parts of your body. As the number of candles on your birthday cake increase, you should start making better food choices.
It seems as if time is moving very fast. You were so young and healthy a while ago, but in a blink of an eye, you are now 30, trying to make better life choices to have a better future.
So, make use of these tips, and you’ll find yourself fresher and healthier in no time!
