Our tips to help you stay healthy and age well
Eating and drinking to stay healthy
- Drink plenty of water – 2 litres a day will keep you in good shape and you won’t eat as much
- Don’t drink sugary drinks – they can ruin your teeth, help you put on weight and possibly develop harmful conditions like diabetes.
- Eat vegetables – eat the rainbow, brightly-coloured fruit and vegetables are rich in antioxidants, flavonoids and vital vitamins.
- Cut out bread – sensitivity to wheat can cause a range of digestive problems, including bloating and excessive wind.
- Cut back on sugar – see improvements in blood pressure, cholesterol levels and the risk of suffering a heart attack.
- Drink less alcohol – save money and give your liver a rest.
- Eat more fibre – keep your digestive system, the “gut microbiome” in top shape.
Exercise to stay fit and maintain your body
- Walk – leave the car at home and stretch your legs. Your body will thank you.
- Stretch – stay flexible and maintain good posture by stretching regularly.
- Do yoga or Pilates – boost your core strength, stay flexible and de-stress.
- Do cardio exercise – apart from keeping you fitter, it can help with weight loss, increase bone density, fend off heart disease and relieve mental health issues
- Do weights – gain muscle, lose weight, look better, be fitter.
- Get a personal trainer – get one-to-one training advice from an expert and follow a plan designed for you.
Life in general
- Be happy – being in a good mood will do wonders for your health
- Sleep 8 hours – your body rebuilds itself while you sleep, a blackout blind can help
- Educate yourself about your body and health – read health blogs, subscribe to email updates
- Brush your teeth – keep plaque and gum disease at bay by brushing twice daily for about two minutes.
- Get a health app – measure your steps, assess your wellbeing, once you start thinking about it you will start making changes for the better
- Get some sun – sunlight helps your body produce vitamin D which helps fight all sorts of ailments, triggers the release of feel-good hormones and help clear up skin problems like eczema and acne (but don’t get burnt – use sun cream and avoid the hottest parts of the day).
- Take some “you” time – make some time each day for yourself.
- Don’t smoke – it’s really bad for your health and your wallet.
