Taking 13 simple steps a day could speed us to good health.
Make the water cooler the go-to place in the office and, by drinking 8 glasses of fluid a day, most of which should be calorie-free water, and eating 5 portions of fruit and vegetables, we’ll kick-start our way to a healthy, hydrated 2017.
Look on this as a natural ‘detox’ programme. We already know that choosing a low fat, low sugar eating plan is a good way to get back into shape – or perhaps to attain the shape we’ve always wanted. This is all about making small changes that will make us feel miles better, and hopefully carry on for weeks to come.
Simply combine these 13 goodies with a healthy diet and a sensible exercise regime.
Drinking eight glasses of water a day may seem a lot, but it’s really very easy:
Have a glass of water when you wake up, one before you go to bed, one with every meal and three others in between, then we’ve drunk our eight glasses with minimal effort. AND eating before meals can help control our appetites.
If yours is an office job, walking regularly to the water cooler has the added benefit of giving your eyes an essential rest from the computer screen.
Being well hydrated can help prevent headaches, mood swings, constipation, kidney stones and offers a host of other health benefits.
8 + 5 = GOOD HEALTH AND VITALITY
