5 Habits to Stay Young And Healthy

Some habits will help you retain good health and youth. Here are some such habits, you should follow.

Exercise- This is the first and foremost healthy habit you should grow. Most experts will advise you to take up daily exercises, six days a week. The time span of the activity can vary, but one should never live an entirely sedentary life devoid of any physical exercise. Do some muscles exercises too, along with the regular ones. Make sure you do vigorous exercise for at least 5 minutes, regularly. It helps you disregard the cognitive decline that has started.

Quit smoking- Another bad reason that you should give up on smoking cigarettes altogether if you are a smoker.

If you are less than 40 years old and have already given up smoking, the good news for you as that your body will recuperate almost by 90%.

Meditation- One of the best habits that one can cultivate is that of meditation. There are a number of reasons that meditation is so important.

You do not need to sit for hours and meditate, just a few minutes of this can help you immensely.

Food and Nutrition- It is imperative for a healthy and young body to have proper food and nutrition. Therefore, you need to eat healthy too. You can begin your day with a green smoothie.
