Looking for more ways to become a healthier you? Here are 5 great ideas you can use any day, every day.
1. Drink a glass of water every 2 hours or at least 6-8 glasses .
Water is an essential nutrient for life. But beyond that, you just plain feel better when you’re well-hydrated. More energy, brighter eyes, healthy skin and a decreased chance of headaches are just a few of the benefits you’ll glean from drinking up!
2. Go for a 30 minute walk or the exercise you choose.
There’s nothing like a nice, brisk walk to relieve stress, give you a boost of energy and get the brain cells working again!
3. Spark a friend.
Why not zip off a quick note or give her/him a goodie and offer encouragement to them. She/He won’t be the only one who feels better!
Journals has been shown to be a stress reliever. Seeing a quandary written down can also help you uncover concrete solutions to it. Take a moment to write down a problem you’ve been encountering and get ready to resolve it!
5. Take "five."
Allowing your body to run on a constant adrenaline rush, which happens when you have continual stressed-out mode, wreaks havoc on the body. Take several breaks throughout your day to simply breathe, pray, or whatever it takes to bring your body down to neutral.

“Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” ~Mark Victor Hansen www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwE8HLLue48
