Health is really all you have. Once you get sick, other things don't matter so much. So you want to strive for the best health you possibly can. Health is complex. There's a number of things we are all trying to balance from our weight, our minds, our cardiovascular system, and our finances. Let's be honest, when your finances are sour, you probably emotionally and mentally don't feel so good. It's important for you to put faith in your health. You can't go after all your ambitions and a romantic life if your health is falling south. So, do what you can today to get a better sense of wellbeing because in all honesty what you really have is your health, your life, and anything else outside of that is just a perk.

So don't delay on getting in shape, eating healthy, and cleaning your environment so it's stable for you.

House Health / Cleaning

  1. Wash and change your sheets once a week. Bacteria thrives on your bedsheets!
  2. Clean your house down, especially dusting. Get rid of items you don't use as they take up space, energy, and could crowd your house with more bacteria cultures.
  3. Clean out your refrigerator once a month. Wear a face mask when doing this. There's all kinds of critters and cultures existing in the fridge.
  4. 18. Regularly clean 15 minutes a day at home. Vacuum, dust, mop -- do something.
  5. Check air filters and buy humidifiers. Consider what you are putting into your air.
  6. Clean your bathrooms. Get rid of toilet gunk, sink gunk, and bathtub gunk. Get rid of old shampoo bottles, try making your own tooth powder, shampoo, and soap.
  7. Clean out your dirty dishes daily as they can inspire ants, bugs, critters, and mouses to come into your homes.
  8. Recycle or burn your trash. Try to reduce how much garbage you’re living behind in your lifetime.
  9. Use baking soda for a number of causes from tooth powder, cleaning surfaces, using to wash hair, etc.
  10. Use a touch of vinegar with dish soap when putting dishes in the dishwasher. It will keep them cleaner.
  11. Keep in your car a jack, spare tire, jumper cables, 2 extra bottles of oil, insurance, and your title. You'll be less stressed when you run into an unfortunate situation.
  12. Keep your cellphone charged, that way it doesn't die when you are in a pickle.
  13. Keep your keys, wallet, purse, all the important items in designated places so that you don't have to waste time looking for them. Don't change your purse and wallet daily -- this may confuse you.
  14. Be careful about what products you use on your lawn. Do research to make sure it won't be putting too many carcinogens into the air.
  15. Do you see lots of bugs? Have a terminator come by your house. Don't risk having poisonous spiders or bedbugs.

Body and Face Health

  1. Place a clean, fresh towel over your pillow that you sleep on at night. This will help reduce the amount of bacteria culture on your face dramatically. This is a better cure for acne than anything else.
  2. Drink plenty of water daily. Water is a better energizer than coffee.
  3. Have plenty of sleep. Doctors recommend 8 a night. They say women should have more sleep due to the toll a day takes on their bodies, geniuses should get an extra hour to reset their brains.
  4. Sleep on your back. This will reduce the amount of wrinkles on your face as well as keep your body in better shape, particularly women.
  5. Take off make up at night as it can cause your face to age faster.
  6. Wear a face mask when fumes are involved.
  7. Do not swim with contacts in your eyes. This can damage your eyes. Also, do not stare directly at a close fire with contacts; this could potentially burn your eyes.
  8. Use egg whites on burns. This will prevent heavy burning and scarring. Do this immediately.
  9. Drink alcohol in moderation; alcohol dehydrates the body which causes it to age faster. Many alcohols cause fat to build, so be careful not to consume too much.
  10. Try eating more organic and fresh food rather than processed foods. Processed foods are harder for your body to process as well as have less nutrients. Sometimes the chemicals in processed foods have hazardous items in them, such as hormones that can cause your body to do funky things.
  11. Plant your own garden. What better way to give back to the planet than by growing your own food? Have a community help you to make a garden.
  12. Look for food that have omega 8 in them, such as berries and some fish. These foods are extra healthy for your body.
  13. Say goodbye to smoking of any kind! Lung cancer is still a popular form of death. There’s several other diseases connected to smoking. Stopping now is one of the best decisions you can make.
  14. Live in the country where you don't have as much carbon monoxide poisoning from vehicles.
  15. Try fasting instead of binge eating. Fasting is said to help boost your immune system.
  16. Avoid eating too much sugar.
  17. Be more conscious of when you eat meat, what kind of meat, or stop eating meat altogether. Some meats are harder for your body to process, such as pork.
  18. Learn how to cook. If you make better food for yourself, rather than TV dinners, you'll be healthier and happier. Consider what you are cooking and study out whether it is healthy or harsh toward your body.
  19. Make your own bread. If you make your own bread, which is really easy, it will have less processed items in and be healthier for you.
  20. Don't chew gum. You're bringing in the air particles around you at a higher rate. This is also hard on your teeth.
  21. Seek a dietician before making radical diet changes. Let them help you to make a plan of action.
  22. Minimize the number of cats you own. Did you know that owning 5 cats makes you clinically insane based off the chemicals cats set off?
  23. Always when on a bicycle wear a helmet. You may be a great biker, but don't trust others not to hit you.
  24. Stay away from hair products with lots of chemicals, such as hair dye and hairspray. These can cause brain damage and also increase the chances for cancer.
  25. As often as possible, ride your bike to work instead of drive. Walk rather than drive.
  26. Put your cellphone away when driving. Don't drive distracted.
  27. Get pedicures and manicures. Clean hands are more attractive than dirty infested hands.
  28. Clean your nails. Cut and shape them. Discolored nails can be an indicator of illness.
  29. If you have a job where you are constantly making exchanges with money and other items, try to wash your hands every thirty minutes.
  30. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day whether cardio, stretching, or muscle training.
  31. Use floss! This will help your teeth out majorly and prevent disasters of the mouth.
  32. Clean out your ears to avoid build up.
  33. See your doctors at least once a year to catch disease early. Always get a second opinion, even for something as simple as cavities.
  34. Own a pet. Having an animal that you can pet will help lower your blood pressure.
  35. Exfoliate your skin. You can use a mixture of olive oil and sugar to make your skin smooth.
  36. Go have a spa day. Get a massage. Have your dead skin removed.
  37. Wear shoes that are good for your health. If shoes are causing you discomfort or give you problems with balance, you may want to opt for more comfortable shoes.
  38. Sit up straight. Good posture helps build strong muscles, sends out a confident message to others, and helps keep your neck and chest in shape.
  39. Do not drink after others, share towels, razors, hairbrushes, toothbrushes, and soap bars with others. This can lead to disease. Be conscious of what you share.
  40. Be careful not to listen to too loud of music or other noises; you can develop tinnitus this way.
  41. Change your undergarments daily. Buy new undergarments yearly and get rid of old ones.
  42. Check your moles. Have a doctor take scans of your moles and have them examined yearly. Skin cancer is one of the easiest cancers to get. Know the signs of potentially bad moles such as asymmetrical, discoloration, or unusual abnormalities.

Mental Health

  1. Read books. An active mind will prevent later mental diseases.
  2. Learn a new language. Studies show learning a new language prevents dementia and alzheimer's disease.
  3. Learn a new musical instrument. This also keeps your mind active.
  4. Travel the world. This will expand your mind and also give you a better sense of culture. Those who travel can think more divergently.
  5. Spend 30 minutes a day praying or meditating. This will help you to relax and see your day better.
  6. Seek a counselor when you are having too many problems. Seek advice when you can't come to conclusions yourself.
  7. Keep your emotions in check. Ask yourself questions as to why you feel negative emotions and what you can do to have a happier sense about life
  8. As crazy as it sounds, hire a math tutor and relearn math. Math sharpens your brain, and with the right math tutor it could be far better than when you were in grade school.
  9. Do not drink diet drinks! They have aspartame, a chemical that causes memory loss.
  10. Listen to classical music. It helps the brain to think more clearly and critically.
  11. Spend time dedicating to your imagination. Try listening to music and being as imaginative as you can. Spend time focusing on brainstorming. This will help you be healthier and will help enhance the quality of your life.
  12. Avoid getting involved in drugs, porn, gangs and the like. Consider how sources will interact with your brain. Go toward Shakespeare rather than run of the mill articles... like this one!
  13. Develop a sense of humor. A light sense of humor can make the hardest situations easier.
  14. Be kind to yourself. Do not call yourself names or hit yourself. Reward yourself for goods deed. Push yourself forward when you can. Be fair with yourself, after all... you are human, not a god.
  15. Write down your dreams in a journal to try to have a better understanding of what your mind is thinking when your body sleeps.
  16. Don't underestimate yourself. Set yourself on a track for great goals. Think ahead deeply about what you would like to accomplish.
  17. Take walks and enjoy your mind’s movements.

Financial Health

1. Do what you can to have financial peace. Budget your money. Save money. Be financially responsible.

2. Invest in making a schedule and planner. Don't be afraid to go off schedule! Listen to people and their needs and act accordingly.

3. Don't spend more than you can save.

4. Open a savings account today and start putting a large percentage toward it.

5. Know the differences between an IRA roth account and a 401k. It's never too early to start. Just go ahead and start today.

6. Try to hone in your dreams. Be conservative about what you want so you don't overspend. The economy is guaranteed to fluctuate.

7. Buying a house statistically is better for your wallet than renting.

8. Don't let your student loans get too big. Give yourself a budget on how big you want your loans to get and schedule out how fast you think you can conquer them. Loans can keep you down from doing the things you really want.

9. Learn about the stock market. It doesn't hurt to invest in some companies you believe will work.

10. Don't let your finances define you.

Social Health

  1. Keep in touch with your friends. Make a note of who stands out to you from high school, college, jobs, and the like. When you're on your deathbed you'll be more sad about how you didn't spend time with people than about your bank account.

2. Before getting married to someone, seek counseling, read as many books as you can, and take your time. A happy marriage is good for you; an unhappy marriage is not.

3. Spend time with your kids and grandkids. Pull yourself out of your hobbies and invest in your children.

4. People tend to be happier when they show gratitude and are generous.

5. Be on the goal of having positive interactions. You will be more successful and find more harmony if you argue less. Pick your battles wisely.

6. Get involved with your community whether doing some non for profit, working on a community garden, or starting an initiative.

7. Make sure you carry pepper-spray and have your cellphone ready if you end up in a dangerous area. Keep a flashlight in your car. Try to travel with friends rather than alone, especially on long journeys.

8. Generously tip at restaurants. The waiters will be kinder to you, and you are doing a good deed!

9. Do not go into abandoned buildings and wander by yourself. This is highly dangerous, you could run into serious kinds of molds or... gangs.

10. Do forgive and forget, but be around people who encourage you rather than bring you down.

11. Be a leader. Stand up for what you believe even if no one else is on the same page as you.

12. Smile.

13. Give hugs.

14. Throw dinner parties.
