2 Simple Ways to Live Healthier

Healthy living is something most of seek. Many of us already exercise and try to eat right, and that is a great start to healthier living. Here are two great tips that will take you to a new level of healthy.

#1 Take Your Vitamins Every Day.

You should take a multivitamin and mineral supplement. Eating healthy is essential but we don’t always get everything we need from our foods, and so taking a daily multivitamin makes sense. Research has shown that when you use good quality nutritional supplements it can help you in achieving optimal health. A recent study by Wyeth Consumer Health found that older adults taking a daily multivitamin was an inexpensive but powerful way to stay healthy. The group also studied the how taking a multivitamins affected five diseases: diabetes, coronary artery disease, prostate cancer, osteoporosis, and colorectal cancer. The researchers estimated that giving a daily multivitamin to the elderly potentially save in health care cost of approximately $1.6 billion in a five year period, as well as avoidable hospitalization for heart attacks of approximately $2.4 billion.

#2 Take the Time to Connect With Others.

We are social beings by our very nature. We create families, nurture our young, and identify ourselves with social groups we are part of. Connection with others and forming important bonds of communication, spiritual health, intimacy, and emotional well being are as important as eating a healthy diet, when it comes to nourishing our bodies. The world we live in connects us in so many different ways at a technical level. However, the closeness we find with people in our day-to-day lives is actually diminishing. Many spend their days surrounded by people but little communication occurs, and there are many feel isolated. Physical touch is very important, and you cannot get that from your cyber friends. Studies dating back to the 1930s showed infants who are touched grow faster than those who just left lying in the cribs. Being touched affects our brains and our nervous system.
