5 Simple Ways To Be Healthier

5 Simple Ways To Be Healthier : Club USA BlogThere are so many little things we can do to increase our health without making major changes to our life or our budget. Here are five little ways to take care of yourself and live longer!

#1 Cut Back On TV.  Think of the difference it makes for your body if you take a walk or if you sit for hours instead. The first is using what you have, the second is losing what you have. The same is the case for your brain when you watch TV, replacing the absent minded activity with something that engages you can keep your brain sharp and ward off a host of diseases.

#2 Sleep More.  Depriving yourself of sleep can greatly affect your ability to concentrate, to remember and to perform mentally.

#3 Add Cranberries to Your Snacks.  Scientific research has shown that cranberries reduce damage to the brain caused by oxidation, thus helping to ward off strokes.

#4 Give Your Office an Ergonomic Tune-Up.  Computer use is a way of life these days. To avoid eye strain set your computer up with the top of the monitor at comfortable eye level, centered. Clean the screen, adjust the brightness and be sure the keyboard is set to keep your elbows close to your side to prevent neck and shoulder strain.

#5 Keep the Dark at Night.  A recent study showed that exposure to light during the night time can harm the body’s production of melatonin. This hormone inhibits the growth of tumors so keeping it dark in your bedroom actually helps you prevent cancer.
