It can be tough to stay on track with a healthy lifestyle 24/7 but below are ten simple rules that you should always follow to be a better you. These no-brainers will help you maintain a long, healthy life.
– Kick the Habit. Even if you only smoke “on the weekends” you are doing irreparable damage to your body. Join a support group, quit with a friend, set goals; anything to help you stop.
– Don’t Fake it. People who use tanning beds are 2 ½ times more likely to develop skin cancer. Skip the fake bake and when you are outdoors, be sure to wear sunscreen.
– Eat Chocolate. Surprised by this rule? You can enjoy these foods, in moderation, and treating yourself every once and a while is key to a successful diet plan.
– Know Your Numbers. A tip from the American Heart Association, Dr. Sizemore-Ruiz says. “Knowing your cholesterol and blood sugar levels and having them checked regularly will help you to make more educated decisions about your diet.”
