Water in Your Lifestyle

It’s important to drink water instead of sports drinks unless you are exercising outside during hot conditions for more than 90 minutes.
It’s best to drink two glasses of water 10- 30 minutes before your meal. Avoid drinking with meals as this will disrupt the digestion of your meal by diluting digestive juices thus increasing your risk of an upset stomach. Wait for 45 – 60 minutes after your meal to drink again. Drink water throughout your day. During exercise drink every 15 minutes to keep your performance at its peak. Even though you might have to visit the rest room more often, it’s better than a kidney transplant. Normal functions of the body result in 9-12 cups of water loss daily.
Optimally, you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, a person weighing 200 pounds should drink 100 ounces, or 12 – 8-ounce glasses, of water. This might seem like a lot, but don’t worry, it takes over six gallons of water to reach toxicity levels.
Don’t wait until you’re thirsty. Thirst is a poor indicator of the amount of water your body needs. Dehydration has already started by the time you actually feel thirsty.

Exercise

– full-body workout two – three time per week, plus a balanced cardiovascular and stretching program. Regular physical activity throughout life is important for maintaining a healthy body, enhancing psychological well-being, and preventing premature death.
The benefits of regular physical exercise include:
• Increases muscle and bone strength.
• Increases lean muscle and helps decrease body fat.
• Appears to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Harvard researchers found that for every one hour of exercise, you can add 2 hours to your life. Many professionals recommend walking at least 10,000 steps per day. You can monitor how many steps you walk by using a pedometer. These can be purchased online. Just clip it to your hip and at the end of the day see how close you can get to 10,000 steps. No matter if you are trying to lose weight or maintain, your body needs all form of exercises in order to keep making progress. Having a healthy combination of aerobic, resistance, and stretching exercises will keep your body in top shape. You see, we were created very different, unlike a battery you buy in the store to use in your device. The more you use a battery, the quicker it dies. God is such a wonderful Creator, the more you move,
the better your body feels. It gets recharged from movement we do and the less you are active, the quicker your body dies! It’s important to keep your body guessing, so cross train and mix up your training

Eat SuperGreen Food

– Eating a diet of 50-80% alkaline foods daily can help you burn off unwanted body fat and boost your immune system strength. Eating an abundance of veggies and fruits helps us to use less of the minerals stored in our body to maintain a slightly alkaline environment. This helps us to keep our bones and teeth strong as we age. A high alkaline food diet could also be labeled as “anti-aging” because it increases your consumption of antioxidants. In the western world, we tend to eat a very high acid diet

Rest

– shoot to get 7 – 8 hours of sleep each night. Learn to control your stress of the day before you are about to hit the sack. The main reason people don’t sleep is because their head is still processing the day or what they need to do tomorrow.

Eat Food with Omega 3 Fatty acids

– Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids: They are necessary for human health but the body can’t make them — you have to get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, such as salmon, tuna, and halibut, other seafood including algae and krill, some plants, and nut oils. Also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development.
