To help keep your body on track, here are some tips from the Department of Health and Human Services:
– Eat breakfast every day. This will speed up your metabolism and prevent you from overeating later.
– Get moving. Just 30 minutes of walking five times a week can improve your mood.
– Learn new things. Learning new skills helps keep your brain healthy and slows aging.
– Stop smoking. Within 20 minutes of finishing your last cigarette, your heart rate and blood pressure will return to normal.
– Get your sleep on track. It improves mood, memory, and concentration, enhances learning, and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease.
– Train your body. Strength training keeps your muscles in shape and strengthens your heart and bones.
– Spending more time outdoors can increase your vitamin D levels. This is good for your bones, heart, and mood.
