We hear time and time again how important it is to live healthily. But what we often want to know is, how will it actually affect me? How will it benefit me? Well, to partially answer that question, read on. Here are five areas of your life that improve if your health does too, and they all begin with the letter S!
Regarding technicalities, a healthier body enjoys greater blood flow to the sexual organs. But even the simpler things are significant. You may find yourself more body confident, and more relaxed, for example. The healthier you are, the longer you will be able to have sex for without getting out of breath. You will also sweat less and have more stamina, which leads to our next point.
Good stamina contributes towards good sex. However, stamina is also an important quality for other areas of life. Exercise is one of these areas. This ranges from being able to train longer, right through to the smaller things. Walking up stairs without getting out of breath, for example. Stamina is not just to do with just heart and lungs; it is also to do with your muscles. Anyone can do three press-ups, but do you muscles allow you do to thirty in a row? A healthy lifestyle means greater stamina in all of these areas. Get a personal trainer if you think that might help.
Fruit, veg, and minerals can vastly improve your eyesight. On the flip side of things, smoking and drinking can dull your senses, taste and smell in particular. However, do remember that these are addictions and beating an addiction often requires the help out outside parties. Once you’re on the road to recovery, you might want to consider a healthier living environment. A Fresh Start Sober Living is an excellent example of a place like this. The more positive your environment, the more likely you are to be able to make beneficial changes.
The National Sleep Foundation say; “Nutrition and exercise are extremely beneficial in providing quality sleep.” This is 100% true. However, you could be in a vicious cycle. A poor diet and exercise regime will give you a restless night. As a result, the next day you will feel too tired to exercise. Plus, you’ll lack the motivation you need to cook dinner instead of ordering take-out again. Or, to walk to work instead of taking the car. It’s crucial that you put these things right. Getting out of the cycle will be a difficult couple of weeks, but once you’ve done it, you’ll reap the benefits. See a Doctor before making any drastic changes to your exercise routine.
