SEVEN RULES FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

A healthy lifestyle is key when it comes to a long and happy life, but when it comes to making healthy lifestyle choices, many people end up struggling, and then give up on their healthy lifestyle aspirations. If you have been looking to make a few healthy changes in your life, here are seven rules to get you started.

Regular Exercise 

Regular exercise is key when it comes to healthy living, with the recommended amount being 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least five days a week. Even if you do not enjoy working out at the gym, make the effort to take a brisk walk every evening, as even this small step will have a huge influence on your overall health.

Diet and Nutrition 

The food that you eat has a direct impact on your health, and you should really be trying to eat as many fresh and whole foods as possible. From a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, in a wide range of colors, to brown rice and whole wheat bread, instead of the refined alternatives, start making healthier choices when it comes to the food that you put into your body.

No Smoking 

Every year in the USA, smoking kills one in five people, and even if you would only consider yourself to be a social smoker, smoking occasionally is still causing irreparable damage to your body. This is the most preventable cause of death and disease out there, so, if smoking is one of your vices, then this is a habit that you need to kick as soon as possible if you are trying to be healthier.

Get Enough Sleep 

Sleep is just as important as nutrition and exercise when it comes to healthy living, as sleep deprivation will quickly lead to a variety of health problems, from heart disease to diabetes. The average adult needs about seven to nine hours of sleep each night, and you should wake up feeling fresh and energized rather than tired and groggy.

Manage Your Stress Levels 

Chronic stress keeps the body’s cortisol levels elevated, which then results in a range of health issues, from a decreased metabolism to depression. There are many ways in which you can manage your stress levels, and the key here is to find the method that works best for you, whether this may be doing some exercise or spending time on a hobby that you love.

Drink Enough Water 

Water plays so many crucial roles within the body, from eliminating toxins to increasing energy to stimulating brain functions, and is actually your most important nutrient. The recommended water intake for the average person is two litres a day, so make sure that you are drinking at least that.

Take Some Time Out 

Your brain works so hard each and every day, and deserves to have a breather once in a while. Whether you regularly enjoy a weekend getaway, or take up yoga and meditation, try to find ways in which you can encourage your brain to relax and unwind.

Healthy living does not need to be difficult, no matter how unhealthy your current lifestyle may be. By setting yourself small, achievable goals, you will slowly be able to work towards a healthier, and happier, lifestyle.

HIT YOUR ANTI-AGING ROUTINE

It has long since been known that exercise is extremely beneficial when it comes to slowing down the aging process, but there is one form of exercise that has been proven to be especially effective. Also referred to as high-intensity interval training, HIIT has been the focal point of many recent studies, all of which have shown that this is the way to go if you want to have the most dramatic impact on the way in which you age.

How Exactly Does HIIT Work?

HIIT is when you perform quick and intense bursts of exercise, with each one followed by a short recovery period, some of which will involve lower intensity activities. The reason why HIIT training is so effective is because it keeps your heart rate up, while burning more fat in a shorter amount of time, and not only has a metabolic effect on the body, but also a molecular one.

Mitochondrial Activity

One of the main roles of mitochondrial is to produce energy within cells, but this activity declines with age, which brings about a whole range of effects, from increased fatigue to shrinking muscle size to excess blood sugar levels, which would then lead to diabetes. However, HIIT training is not only able to put a stop to this decline of mitochondrial activity, but it can also reverse it, boosting back its ability to generate energy within cells.

What Do You Need for HIIT Training?

The beauty of HIIT training is that you do not actually need any equipment at all, since the focus is on using your body weight to increase your heart rate. This goes a long way in helping to build muscle, while increasing the number of calories that are burned.

Give This HIIT Workout a Try

This HIIT workout is one that you can do just about anywhere, and is relatively easy to remember. Begin with 50 sit-ups, followed by 40 jump squats, 30 push ups and 20 split jumps. Finish this off with 10 tricep dips and 30-second burpees, ensuring that you really put your all into it, and have 30 seconds of rest between each set of exercises. This workout should be repeated every other day, and you should try to beat your time with each new session, which will seem much easier as your fitness levels increase.

There are so many different HIIT workouts out there that you can try, all of which will be so beneficial when it comes to your anti-aging campaign. In addition to this, HIIT workouts are extremely quick and convenient, usually taking no more than 30 minutes, making them easy to squeeze in to your day.
