Surely you live a constant struggle to transform your life and make it healthier, but you don't know how to do it. At amiPASS, we are aware of the value of having quality of life, so we leave you with four habits that you should change to help you achieve it in a comprehensive way, and thus begin to enjoy better health and a fuller existence.
Four habits that you will have to change to achieve a better quality of life:
1. Keep an active life:
The body is designed to remain in motion, so being at rest for a long time only brings problems for your health. Therefore, you should find a way to exercise at home, outdoors or in specialized gyms to actively combat a sedentary lifestyle.
Go for a walk at least half an hour a day or do at least an hour a day of aerobic or cardiovascular exercises, so you will stay healthy, strong, lose weight, prevent diseases, activate creativity, reduce stress and improve concentration in your daily activities.
2. Take care of your diet:
Getting rid of old eating habits is not easy. You can seek professional guidance from an expert nutritionist who will guide you with a diet based on your needs, or simply make the decision to be more conscious when choosing your foods to achieve a balanced diet, selecting better food to nourish your body, including vegetables, fruits, legumes, fiber and white meats. Don’t forget to stay hydrated with low-sugar liquids, preferably natural juices.
3. Say goodbye to saturated fats:
The reason why they are so harmful to the body is because they turn solid at room temperature, so it is advisable to reduce the consumption of foods with a high fat content, especially saturated and trans fats, and avoid the daily use of butter, coconut oil, palm oil, cheeses, etc.
It is not about eliminating the consumption of fats but controlling it, because your body needs healthy fats to obtain energy and perform many of its functions. However, consuming them in excess can cause fat to accumulate in the arteries, increase cholesterol, increase weight, and put you at risk of heart disease, diabetes, or even a stroke. Minimizing your consumption will help you feel and look better.
4. Increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables
Include them in your daily diet, because they are a naturally rich source of fiber, vitamins and minerals that contribute to good digestive health. It is also vital to reduce the frequent consumption of processed foods, because they lack nutritional value, lower your energy levels, and make you feel sluggish and tired.
The best thing about consuming fruits and vegetables is that most of them don’t require any preparation, so you can carry them with you wherever you go. Just take them, wash them and eat them, or prepare fast, light and fresh meals.
Now that you’re in the know and have chosen to change your old consumption patterns for new ones, tell us which of these four healthy habits you will put into practice to achieve a healthier lifestyle?
