Eat healthy foods. A nutrient-rich diet includes whole grains, fish, nuts, eggs, poultry and lean meats, fat-free or low-fat dairy foods such as yogurt and fortified milk, and unsaturated fats like olive oil and avocados.
Exercise regularly. Regular physical activity helps control your weight, strengthens your bones and muscles, improves your mood and overall mental health and may add extra years to your life.
Get enough sleep. Sleep is necessary for the healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. It aids in the balance of your body’s hormones and supports your body’s growth and development.
Manage your stress. Strategies like exercise, yoga, meditation or participating in stress-reduction programs are effective ways to manage your stress and help keep your body healthy.
Stay hydrated. Every cell in your body needs water to function properly. Water maintains body temperature, moves nutrients and waste materials through your body, helps normalize blood pressure and lubricates and cushions body joints and organs.
I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
