10 Tips to live Happy and Healthy

It is not a secret that the simplest things are almost always the most good for us. Follow these tips to live better.
1. Come essentials
Common sense dictates that the best diet is one that is based on foods which have been subsisting since ancient times on this planet. These are food, after all, to which we have adapted. Recent studies show that a ‘basic’ diet containing fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds as well as meat, fish and egg, is the best alternative to control our weight and prevent risks of diseases such as diabetes or heart disease. This return to basics will allow you to bypass the food marketing (yes, no need of that instant calorie microwave food to survive, and no need of this lactose-free yogurt with any calories to keep online). It gets back to basics; it is good for your health and your pocket.
2. Stay hydrated
Water makes up two thirds of the weight of your body and develops a host of functions in your body, ranging from being a solvent, a charger nutrients, temperature regulator and a detoxifying the body. Maintain hydration can have a profound influence on the levels of vitality and energy, including mental acuity. Try to take enough water so that your urine comes out almost transparent throughout the day. Another tactic that can help is to always carry a water bottle in hand.
3. Pay attention to what you eat
Surely today you had 3 meetings in the morning, then picked up the children, did market and went to the gym. What did you eat? You’d be surprised to know that you do not remember for sure, and probably less have any idea about the amount. With the rapidity with which the world is moving today, people have fallen into the trend absently eating, eating more often it touches. We eat, and not enjoying it. Try to eat slowly, enjoying every drop of food, so you control the amount, being satisfied. Do not deny that after tackling a whole family pack of potato chips while for the thousandth time you saw ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ made you feel horribly guilty for a week (not counting the acidity endured that night). Make breaks during the day. Sit at a table. Organize a nice dish.
4. Sunbathes
The sun, and Vitamin D that this fixed in the body, is associated with a broad spectrum of benefits to the body, including reducing the risk of various cancers, heart disease, multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis, as well as improving immune system. Just make sure to wear sunscreen, because while you should avoid burning yourself, you also need greater exposure to the sun for good health.
5…. And in the winter
Low levels of sun in the winter (or if you live in colder cities like the capital), cannot make very good spirits. Even if it’s cold, try to have an exposure to daylight. Take the opportunity to wear clothing that could not be used on a beach, like coats (red one black dress and black heels can be very chic … very Audrey Hepburn), scarves, cashmere (they are adorable), leather gloves, and a hat fashion.
6. Give yourself to the arms of Morpheus
Sleep not only improves your ability and mental and physical energy, it also reduces the risk of chronic disease and improving longevity. Sleep 8 hours a day. Moreover, what sleep does for your skin is amazing. Regenerates. A simple strategy that ensures enough sleep is to go to bed earlier. Being tucked under the covers at 10 at night is an incredible investment in terms of your health, short and long term. Take advantage of. There is nothing more pleasurable than get exhausted, wash your face, get you warm between your pajamas, and off to bed!
7. Walk regularly
Aerobic exercise, including something as simple as walking (low impact), is associated with a variety of benefits for the body and the brain, including a reduced risk of chronic diseases, anti-anxiety and puts you in a good mood. Try to walk at least 30 minutes a day. Studies show that the total number of small ads exercise sessions as a long followed, so don’t worry about the half-hour walk away. Walk to work, climb stairs, to the supermarket, make ‘window-shopping’ around the mall, out walking your dog. To make it more fun on your iPod, radio cell, mp3, etc … even the music will make you walk faster without you noticing. You will be surprised that if you walk from work to home (if the distance is not exaggerated), get faster during peak hours than if you were in the car because you avoid the traffic jam.
8. Try to exercise resistance
Resistance exercise helps maintain muscle mass and strengthen the body. This is particularly relevant as we age, while reducing the risk of disability and falls. There are many useful exercises you can do from home, like squats, sit-ups and push-ups. Invests in an elastic band and small weights to expand your exercise routine. You can do it while watching the news or your favorite movie.
9. Do good to others occasionally
Doing good is not only good for others; the benefit is the same for you. It can be from a call to someone you love, and with whom you lost contact, giving up your seat on the bus or in the waiting room, buys something to eat for someone who needs it, or give a bouquet of flowers to your mom (or your best friend). Try to do an act of kindness every day (although, generally speaking, the more the better).
10. Practice the art of appreciation
Modern life tends to be immensely aspirational, and as a result, we can easily see us pursuing an eternal list of things we should be and do, (and have, since many are material) to be happy. Many of us spend more time focusing on what we have, rather than what we do. Change that attitude. You can improve your mood from giving thanks in the morning for the friends you have, for the family, because you slept happily on a soft bed, the sun exquisitely enters through the window, because you will start the day with your favorite breakfast. Bring good out of small things and walk small steps toward your dream destination.
