Samsung’s health tips to maintain a balanced lifestyle
Your health is irreplaceable, and you should not compromise on having a healthy body. Therefore, you need to make sure you take good care of your lifestyle to remain healthy.
On the occasion of World Health Day, Samsung offers you tips and tricks to maintain good health!
Less excess, more moderation!
Who said that maintaining good health deprives you of your favourite food? Or to keep fit you need to skip main meals? The issue is not what you eat - it's the portion of food you eat throughout the day! Moderation is the key to maintain your body's balance. So enjoy your favourite foods, but limit your overall consumption!
Have your 5 a day!
Fruits and vegetables are full of nutrients, are low in calories, and are rich in vitamins & mineral! Having your daily portions of fruits and vegetables will assist in maintaining your waistline and will keep your heart younger for longer, so make sure to have your daily intake of 3 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of fruit a day!
Healthy mind, healthy body.
Exercise has great impact on our health, such as reducing obesity which leads to many physical and psychological illnesses. It would be great if you are able to join a gym and maintain an exercise routine, however you can still achieve your exercise needs by doing exercises that don't require a financial investment. No cost ways to exercise can be walking, yoga, running and even walking your pet at the park alone or with friends and family!
A great device to help you monitor your health during exercise is the Gear S2 which will monitor your heart rate and your physical activity to assist you in reaching your goals!
Water is our lifeline
Did you know that water comprises a large proportion of the human body, more than 70% in fact?
Any deficiency leads to a malfunction of the body. So you need to make sure that you get enough water throughout the day to maintain hydration in your body. Being properly hydrated will assist your body in fighting and avoiding many diseases such as kidney failure and other chronic diseases.
Drinking water also helps you maintain your weight, as the body often confuses being thirsty with hunger, in which case drinking water can help you curb your hunger and reach your fitness goals easier!
Sleeping is an essential element in maintaining human health. An adult should have a minimum of 7 hours of sleep per day, and a growing child would need good sleep for 11 hours a day. Sleeping for less hours than the minimum will result in sleep deprivation, which can wreak havoc on your productivity, your mood, and eventually your physical health.
Smile to life, it'll smile back at you!
Smiling adds a glow to your face and spreads happiness amongst the people around you. The simple act of smiling and contracting the facial muscles responsible for smiling sends signals to your brain that tell it you are happy. This way, smiling, even if you don't feel like it, will eventually make you feel better and will make people around you like you more!
Take note of the simple daily tips that will ensure you maintain your health and increase your productivity at work, and more importantly maintain a healthy balance in your life.
