Even the adults perceive the way of life “without school”. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something for your health in such a natural way that you hardly even notice the effort.
Eight specialists in the field of diet, fitness, stress, eyesight and health of the mouth and teeth asked “If you could recommend just one easy change this season to improve everyone’s personal health, what would it be?”, Respond as follows:
1. Turn small berries on in their diet
If you have to do just one thing for your diet this summer, eat a bunch of mixed berries – blueberries, blackberries or strawberries every day. They will help you get enough antioxidants to prevent damage to the tissues and reduce the risk of age-related illnesses. Blackberries and blueberries are especially rich in antioxidants.
One more bonus: Small fruit is the richest of fiber, which more quickly satisfies hunger (with fewer calories) and helps maintain cholesterol at lower levels.
2. Impaired and reduced stress
To reduce stress, take a bit of gardening – a place will always be found. Even a few new flower pots at home will do the job. The very touch of the soil with hands acts soothing. And when a person feels that life is moving too fast to sense every important thing in it, mental calm helps to reduce physical and mental stress.
3. Clean your teeth with a thread every day
You must know that it is advisable to do so. And now is a good time to start. Do it even on the beach while reading or watching TV at home. Suture cleaning removes a lot of bacteria in the mouth. And this has an unexpected great impact on health as a whole. Research shows that 85% of people who daily clean their teeth with a thread define their health as better.
4. Go out and move
Choose an outdoor activity – a trip, a walk in the nature, a walk with the kids, a bicycle, roller skating or swimming – to get rid of this feeling of tight space that drives the workouts in the gym. If you share the experience with family or friends, it will bring you a bonus and a more cohesive and sincere relationship between you and yourself.
5. Be careful to your eyes
To protect your health and leisure, always wear safety glasses. When you are out, choose sunglasses that block at least 99% of ultraviolet A and B rays. These glasses also help to reduce the risk of cataracts and also protect the sensitive skin around the eyes from the premature appearance of wrinkles. It is good to consult a specialist exactly what glasses to choose.
6. Time to leave!
Faster schedule in the summer is a good opportunity to reduce tension. Observations show that leave helps reduce blood pressure, heart rhythm and stress hormones that are causing weight gain and an increased risk of heart disease.
7. Limit alcohol
Summer is a great time to miss hard alcohol and choose lighter cooling alcoholic beverages (of course, if you do not suffer from any chronic illness or pregnancy). Chilled wine, cold beer and fruit juices (best freshly squeezed) are both refreshing and lightweight. In moderate quantities – one or two glasses a day – alcoholic beverages are proven to reduce the risk of heart disease.
