Take care of your health!

World Health Organization gives us some tips!

You are going to get married and you would like to make sure (or start!) to live a healthy lifestyle, which is great!

The World Health Organization gives us some tips on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle!

Here are the recommendations:

1. Stop using tobacco 

No matter how you use it, tobacco is very dangerous to your health and your loved ones. The addiction to tobacco in most cases is very strong but you should try to quit as soon as you can. This is for your own health. You will feel better and will avoid many diseases that come with the use of tobacco.

2. Improve your diet

Eat five servings of fruit and vegetables each day.

Umm… vegetables! When in the market, there is nothing more eye-catching than fresh colorful vegetables and fruits. They have all the flavours and shapes and they are really beneficial for your health. Remember to eat at least five servings of fresh fruit or vegetables every day!

Avoid salt and salty food

We all know how harmful it is to eat fast food. It contains a lot of salt, so The World Health Organization recommends us to avoid it. One tip is: try not to add salt to your food, use less than 1 tea-spoon (5 grams) of salt each day.

Eat more fiber

Sources of fiber include beans, lentils, peas, oats, fruits, and vegetables.

Limit alcohol 

You do not need to avoid alcohol completely but is a good tip to set some limits to your weekly consumption.

Limit fatty foods

3. Stay active and control your weight

No gym? No problem! You can stay active by walking two or three days per week for 20 minutes. You can also do some exercises home or even avoid to take the last bus home or walk up the stairs. If you eat a lot and are not active enough to burn off the calories you take in, you will put on weight. Staying active will improve your life, it makes you feel healthier, helps you sleep, and improves your state of mind.
