Live to 100 by Taking Care of Your Body
Getting the motivation to work out and stay active can be a challenge. The effects of not staying active, however, can be life-threatening. Do not fret, though! We have a solution for you. A simple twenty-to-thirty-minute walk a day promotes heart health and physical strength. You don’t need to do a fast-paced run, bike ride, or swim to get your cardio in for the day! Studies have shown that for cardio to be effective, all you need to do is get moving and keep a consistent pace– this allows your heart rate to rise and your blood to pump. This can be a brisk walk on a cool morning, a slow jog through the falling leaves, or even a casual swim at the pool. Along with staying active, you also need to be sure to eat well. As long as you maintain a healthy diet (with maybe a cheat day or two) and get up and active 3-4 times a week, you will reap the rewards! Studies have also shown that people who stay active 3-4 times a week and eat well live 10-20 years longer than the average person. And because they’re taking care of their body, those extra decades will be lived comfortably rather than just endured.
Live to 100 by Taking Care of Your Mind
An unpopular fact that is becoming more popular of late is that taking care of your mind is just as important (if not more important) than taking care of your body. After the last few years of sickness and uncertainty, the numbers reflecting individuals suffering from poor mental health have dramatically increased. Additionally, the number of individuals seeking help has also increased. There are tons of free or close-to-free resources available for those seeking to better their mental health. Some available options are even quite entertaining! There are plenty of mind-training apps that you can download on any smart device and work to keep your mind sharp. Believe it or not, activities such as puzzles, art projects, and board games can be a great way to keep your mind engaged and healthy!
Invest in Yourself
If you are looking to live a long and healthy life, take the time to take care of yourself. Challenge yourself to take a 20-30 minute walk a couple of times a week or try a new recipe! Schedule a massage or a vacation to rest and relax. Maybe download some brain-training apps or buy a new puzzle! It is important to take time out of your week to rest your mind and get active. Your health is important and your best self is attainable!
