Updated on January 27, 2014

How much money have you spent seeking help for your sickness? Perhaps a few adjustments can help you improve your health and save you lots of money. It does not take a rocket scientist to know that improving your health is a matter of common sense!

How often are we told to drink more water, most of the human body is made up of water, H2O, with cells consisting of 65-90% water by weight. This gives us a hint as to why we should drink more water. Drinking more water has many health benefits, even being a little dehydrated can make you feel tired.

Get your rest! Three very familiar words, the fact is, many people are sleep deprived. Too little sleep can affect your mood, your work and cause accidents. We can remedy this problem by using common sense to get an efficient amount of rest each night. A short nap during the day can do wonders for the body.

A good start to your day is a nutritious breakfast, a new revelation, not at all! The benefits are unlimited, a good breakfast boosts memory, improves your mood and it can help you control your weight, just to mention a few benefits of a nutritious breakfast.

Health experts have been telling us for years how important it is to exercise. If you really want to improve your health, here is a common sense tip - release your "feel good hormones" Endorphin's. Endorphins are natural chemicals released by the brain to improve our mood, relieve pain, reduce stress and produce an overall feeling of well being.

Remember to set aside some, me time, yes make time for you. Everyone needs some alone time, it is good for the soul, time to relax and reflect on the important things in life. Does this sound reasonable to you?

Only a few things are needed to improve your health and avoid health problems, just use common sense. What you do with this information will determine if you have common sense or not. To be fair, it is true that we all have developed a few bad habits, this is a factor, not an excuse, therefore, make it your aim to rid yourself of bad habits, this can be done one-step at a time. Be patient with yourself, it took time to learn a bad habit and it will take time to un-learn a bad habit, it can be done, perhaps you personally know someone who has overcome a bad habit, talk with them to get pointers for overcoming your own bad habits. If you are serious about improving your health, try using common sense for a change!
