Many patients in Boca Raton strive to live a healthy lifestyle. However, some may be missing some essential steps to doing just that. Being proactive and taking care of your body can result in a long and happy life. Here are some crucial tips to leading a healthy lifestyle.
Drink enough water
With our bodies consisting of more than 60% water, it is no surprise that water is a vital substance needed for our bodies to perform its daily functions. We lose water throughout the day from using the bathroom, sweating, and even breathing. Because of this it is important to rehydrate often. The amount of water needed is dependent on each individual as well as their weight and activity level. However, the average person should consume between 8-10 glasses of water a day.
Get an adequate amount of sleep
Getting enough sleep is an extremely important step to achieving good health. Lack of sleep has been linked to health problems such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease or heart attacks. Getting enough sleep has many benefits, and is linked to a sunny disposition, lower risk of injuries, better weight control and clearer thinking.
There seems to be an endless supply of benefits to exercising regularly. Not only can it increase your life span, it can also help with weight loss, lower your risk of certain diseases, and result in higher bone density. To get the most out of your exercises, chose activities you enjoy. You are more likely to want to put more effort into an activity you like. As an avid biker, Dr. Berman rides between 110-140 miles per week and is the president of the Boca Raton Bicycle Club. Dr. Berman recently participated in the annual MS Breakaway to the Keys, a cycling fund raiser for multiple sclerosis where he rode 150 miles on Saturday and Sunday, for Bike MS.
Eat a healthy diet
Consuming fruits and vegetables is a great way to receive many vitamins and minerals. Some experts recommend 5-9 servings of fruits or vegetables a day. Also, choosing to eat brightly colored foods is beneficial, since these foods are commonly high in antioxidants. Avoiding processed foods, foods with many preservatives, or foods that contain high levels of salt is also a great step towards a healthier you.
