Simple tips to improve your health

Find out how to improve your health by simply changing your daily habits.

Living in a healthy way is not as difficult as it seems and improving one’s health is often a matter of commitment to changing our daily habits.

So I decided to offer you some useful suggestions that will surely help you.

Sleep well and take a siesta

If you have been in Latin America you will have surely noticed that many people go home during their lunch break. The so-called “siesta” is granted, which is nothing more than a short nap. According to one study, adults who systematically took a nap during the day had a 37% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease. The afternoon nap allows to lower blood pressure and reduce the production of cortisol, a hormone that modulates stress.

Train your brain

Contrary to popular belief, your brain, if trained, can age more slowly than your body. Reading, taking music or language lessons or cultivating new hobbies can help the brain stay young and healthy. Some studies have also highlighted how certain video games can help older people keep their mind in business.

Do physical activity

We all know that exercise is a key ingredient to staying healthy. A recent study showed that walking at a moderate pace helps to prevent hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes and coronary heart disease. Compared to other forms of exercise, walking does not require much effort on your body and can provide benefits such as lowering blood sugar levels, improving digestion, improving mood and sleep.
