1. Enroll in a fitness program at the gym

To keep yourself in good health, enroll in a gym because fitness is absolutely necessary for your health.

Make it a top priority to spend at least half an hour to 45 minutes daily in the gym.

Enrolling in a fitness program has many benefits.

It releases good hormones or happy hormones called endorphins. These endorphins increase your mood and make you happy.

Spending time at the gym will result in weight loss. This will make you feel light and strong.

It will increase your speed and give you a feeling of general well being.

Exercise benefits you in so many ways.

It keeps your endorphins levels up, thus improving your mood.

Regular fitness programs strengthen your muscles and improve the density of your bones.

This will result in having a strong body and a long and happy life.

2. Buy new exercise gear

In order to motivate yourself, you can do things like purchase a new pair of running shoes.

And if you don't have the time to go to the gym then you can buy a treadmill which you can use right at home.

In short, whatever motivates you to exercise needs to be done.

You can also buy a device that will tell you how many steps you have walked during the day.

You can download some good apps that will help you to monitor your fitness regime continuously.

3. Get up early

Early to bed, early to rise, makes some men healthy, wealthy and wise.

We have heard this saying since time immemorial. There is a lot of truth in this saying.

Waking up early in the morning does something to your health.

It also gives you success in other areas of life.

Most successful people have the habit of getting up early. They have their early morning routine.

Getting up early gives you more time to care for yourself before the business of life catches up with you.

So decide to get up early may be between 5.00 to 5. 30 AM.

In the beginning, this may be hard but after about 3 weeks you will get up without much effort.

Getting up early helps you to spend some quiet time in reflection.

It gives you time to plan out your day. Getting up early is a very good habit which you should inculcate.

4. Cut back on eating out and at fast food joints

Cut back on eating out immediately.

Completely stopping it well result in improving your health.

The food outside is prepared with a lot of oil, and even some chemicals like Monosodium Glutamate are added.

All this is harmful to the body.

Eating homemade food will improve your health and also save you a lot of money.

So control yourself and stop eating outside.

I have experienced the goodness of home-cooked food because my wife is a wonderful cook.

I always thought that food in the restaurants is the tastiest but my wife put that myth to rest forever.

Many people think that home-cooked food cannot be as tasty as restaurant food but nothing can be far from the truth.

In fact, home-cooked food is more tasty and healthier than restaurant food.

At least that has been my experience. And the savings is an added benefit.

5. Maintain your ideal weight

Monitor your weight regularly and keep it nearer to your ideal weight.

If it goes up significantly, then take steps to bring it back to normal.

Maintain your ideal body mass index.

Maintaining the right weight will keep you light and healthy.

6. Cut down on binge drinking

Another important thing for you to do is to cut down on binge drinking.

Too much drinking will affect your health adversely. So have your drinks in moderation and reduce the frequency as well.

7. Eat lots of vegetables and fruits

There is a benefit to eating vegetables and fruits. You will do well to include lots of these in your daily diet.

Find creative ways of making tasty vegetable recipes. And you can be creative with the fruits as well.

You could make fruit juices or smoothies so that it becomes easier to consume.

There is also a myth that vegetables are not tasty. This is not at all true as vegetable recipes can be a lot of fun, healthy, and tasty.

Learn some new recipes that you can prepare at home.

The more fruits you consume, the more healthy you will become.

So bring a variety of fruits and consume them in their raw form.

8. Learn to relax and take it easy

Yes, that's right, learn to relax and become calm.

This will help you to become healthy and happy too.

Learning to relax will take away unnecessary stress from your mind.

This will release the happy hormones in your body called endorphins and these will keep you healthy.

You don't have to worry and be stressed about a lot of things so just let it go.

Remain calm and take it easy.

9. Reduce sugar and salt in your diet

Another major decision you can make is to reduce the amount of sugar in your food completely.

Sugar is a slow poison.

White sugar is very harmful to the body.

Eliminate sugar completely and include natural sweeteners in your diet.

Also, reduce your salt intake because it has an effect on your blood pressure and heart.

10. Go for a full body checkup

Finally, go for a full body check-up regularly.

This needs to be done more frequently as you go beyond 50 years of age.

This will help you to monitor your health in a systematic way.

As per the reports, you can take preventive measures to enjoy optimum health.

These are the 10 things which you can do to maintain good health to live long and strong.
