6 Easy Ways To Live A Healthier Life

Living a healthy and fulfilled life is one of the best decisions you can make. The benefits of doing so are innumerable. However, it can be difficult to know where to start.

1. Sleep Better

Sleep is one of the most underrated parts of your health. There is a commonly used phrase which refers to the ignorance regarding sleep.

“You can sleep when you are dead.”

The irony in this statement is that if you follow it, you will be dead sooner than you think! Sleep is a vital part of our lives, it is when we repair from the damage we have done to our bodies during the day.

2. Eat Less Shit

What you put into your body is vitally important. You wouldn’t put the wrong type of fuel into your car, so why would put the wrong type of food into your body.

3. Exercise More

Our bodies were designed to move, modern life has made us ever more sedentary. This is a serious problem that needs addressing. Our ancestors did not sit in offices for 8 hours every day, they were out hunting and gathering to ensure their survival.

4. Reduce Stress

As I mentioned before, modern life is becoming ever more stressful. We have multiple apps and TV programmes competing for our attention. We live in a busy and noisy world that shows no sign of slowing down.

Cutting the news out of my life made a huge difference!

Analysis what causes you stress in your life and see if there is a way you can reduce that stress, and if possible, eliminate it.

5. Reduce your meat intake

This may be a controversial point for some people, but there is a reason behind its inclusion on this list. The rate at which we eat meat at the moment is unsustainable. The amount of land that is cleared to raise cattle and the sheer amount of water used to facilitate is incredible and not in a good way!

6. Step out of your comfort zone

This last one is a bit different from the other pieces of advice, I have given, but I feel it is just as important. It is all too easy to get stuck in a rut and do the same things over and over again.
