Healthy Lifestyle Tips for Adults

If you’ve been dealing with aches and pain for any time, you may need to look at your overall lifestyle and how you’re eating. Everyday habits of living have a huge impact on how we feel day to day and your health in general.

We’ve all heard it before but, for many, attention is not paid to the little things in life. These are probably some of the same things you hear in the back of your mind (in your mother’s voice no doubt) about how to stay healthy and happy.

Have a look at the following stories and don’t skip the video at the end. Start with one or two things you read or hear and try to work them into your daily routine. It may take a week or so, but, you’ll feel better that you started.


Tips To Stay Healthy Throughout Your Life


today.comGeorge Jedenoff can’t believe he’s 100 years old and if you watch his birthday party, you’ll agree. He marked the big day this month by skiing in the summer snow.

“I couldn’t find a better present on my 100th birthday,” Jedenoff, who has been whooshing down mountains for 57 years, told a crowd of fans gathered on the slopes of the Snowbird ski resort in Utah.

Born in Russia on July 5, 1917, Jedenoff came to the U.S. in 1923 after his family fled the Russian Revolution and settled on the West Coast. He graduated from Stanford University, where he met his wife, “the most important thing in my life,” he said. They married in 1943.

What keeps him going? Here are his four rules for a good, long, healthy life:

Jedenoff and his wife have been married for 74 years. “She is the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life,” he said.

For the last 30 years, Jedenoff has made it a priority to exercise every single morning.

He uses some “junky equipment” in his home to work out, but it’s not important what kind of equipment you have — the main goal is to work your muscles with resistance training, he said. Jedenoff does exercises for his legs, arms, abs and back. He also gets his heart pumping with the help of a few cardio machines or by jogging on his patio. His daily routine takes about 45 minutes.

Make sure to balance your life and include meaning as well as pleasure, Jedenoff advised.

A Few Very Simple Steps Can Lead To A Healthier Lifestyle

More than ever people are choosing healthier lifestyles, and why wouldn’t they when it’s something we should all be aiming for in order to look, feel and be as good as we can.

And it’s not too difficult to do.

Incorporating simple health-supporting habits into your daily routine will assist you with prevention, so Skin Online pointed out five routines to get you started:

– Put sugar on hold “forever”

Simply put, sugar is as toxic as poison to the body, it undermines all the bodies natural processes and raises the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. Sugar is the number one cause of inflammation in the body and as such should be avoided at all costs. The challenge is finding foods that exclude sugar, mainly because it’s a key ingredient in just about every processed food imaginable.

Healthy lifestyles include whole foods, as in that which grows in the ground, goes bad if not refrigerated, or has a limited shelf life—so, yes, not those foods which are so man-made that they do not perish. Instead of worrying about food labels and all the unpronounceable ingredients on them, rather choose fresh and organic produce. Make your own soups and sauces, so that you can control the ingredients and avoid any packaged foods.

Modern life and office jobs make for a sedentary lifestyle, making exercise a vital part of a healthy lifestyle. If you’re a beginner, why not hit the gym, or even better hit the great outdoors and start by walking at lunchtime or after dinner? At the office, commit to moving five minutes out of every hour, be it a lap around the office, a bathroom break or even fetching your favourite drink of choice.

– Sleep a little longer

Sleep is not overrated. In fact, studies now show that proper sleep is more important than ever before. It’s time to relearn and re-implement what was once the norm – in other words, a minimum of eight hours sleep per day.

Prolonged Sitting Can Ruin All Your Gains In The Gym

We all know the harmful effects of sitting for long and is not good for our health. People with desk jobs often suffer from upper back issues. But a new research now shows that sitting for long at one place is harmful even if you exercise regularly.

Regular exercise, particularly higher levels of physical activity, appears to blunt these harmful effects somewhat but may not eliminate them entirely. An analysis of more than a dozen studies concluded that we need at least 60 minutes a day of moderately intense exercise (such as brisk walking, doubles tennis or ballroom dancing) to counter the increased risk of premature death due to prolonged sitting.

But another study found that the same amount of exercise which is more than most physically active people get doesn’t undo the negative effects of sitting on insulin levels and blood fats. The damage from prolonged sitting is thought to be due to reduced muscle activity, especially in the large muscles of the legs and back, which can decrease the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar and remove harmful blood fats.

How You Can Prevent Lower Back Pain This Year

2. Take breaks from sitting.

Between long car trips and watching the kids at the pool, summer can be a season of prolonged sitting. According to a 2015 study, there is a significant relationship between total sitting time and low back pain. The researchers included sitting for recreational and leisure purposes in their study.

4. Stretching
Stretching has been shown to be an effective method to prevent low back pain. Regular stretching works by increasing flexibility and thereby decreasing pressure on the back, especially uneven pressure resulting from poor flexibility. Developing the right stretching program will help you to build strong and flexible muscles that will help to prevent injury.
