3. Good diet
Eating healthy food is important as it helps to avoid having heart diseases or even suffering kidney failure.
A diet rich in fruits and vegetables has been scientifically proven to provide numerous health benefits, such as reducing your risk of several chronic diseases and keeping your body healthy.
Eating a healthy, balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health, and can help you feel your best.
This means eating a wide variety of foods in the right proportions, and consuming the right amount of food and drink to achieve and maintain healthy body weight.
Among lots of other health benefits, eating a balanced breakfast can help sync up your biological clock by letting your body know that it’s time to wake up and get going.
4. Regular water
Staying hydrated is one of the simplest ways to keep energized and focused.
The body constantly loses water throughout the day, mostly through urine and sweat but also from regular body functions like breathing. To prevent dehydration, you need to get plenty of water and food every day.
5. Always check your blood pressure
High blood pressure is one of the leading causes of sudden cardiac arrest or heart issues.
High blood pressure (also called hypertension) happens when your blood moves through your arteries at a higher pressure than normal.
Many people have high blood pressure without even being aware. Most people who have high blood pressure do not have symptoms. This is why it’s sometimes called “the silent killer.” It is very important to have your blood pressure checked regularly.
6. Reduce alcohol intake
Quitting alcohol isn’t easy but the reduction is very important.
According to statistics, Alcohol consumption contributes to 3 million deaths each year globally as well as to the disabilities and poor health of millions of people. Overall, the harmful use of alcohol is responsible for 5.1% of the global burden of disease.
