We talked a little last night about how to get ourselves to drink more water. Well, I figured that the goal needed to be expanded a little to include general health. What can we do to increase our health overall? I’m no doctor and I don’t claim to know all there is to know, but I do know that there are some easy things that we can do in order to make ourselves healthier.

5 Tips for Getting Healthy This Year
These tips will help you get healthy this year.
Drink More Water
Water is so so so important. I know that not everyone loves the taste of plain old water, but for optimum health you really need to be drinking the appropriate amount of water. Check out yesterday’s post for tips on how you can get more water each day.
Get enough Sleep
I know it is tempting to stay up later or get up earlier in hopes of getting more stuff done, but the reality is, you need sleep. Your body needs rest, so give in! Do your best to get at least 7+ hours of sleep each night.
Cut out the Junk Food
Cutting junk food out of your life may seem like it is a difficult step, but trust me, you will be glad you did it. Eating junk food adds unnecessary calories, sodium, sugar and more to your diet. None of us needs that.
Get out and Move
Many of us spend way too much time sitting in front of our computers and not moving around enough. Let’s change that for the benefit of our health. Try and get at least 30 minutes of exercise each day for.
Take a Social Media Break
We need a break. A break from the stress, the comparison, the jealousy, the hatred, the anger, and constant negative news. For most of us, this break can come from taking a break from social media. You may not realize it, but social media often does a lot of damage to our mental well being. Taking a break from it can truly help with our mental health. I try to take a couple of days away from social media each month and I always feel refreshed afterward.
