We wrote an article on how you can stay healthy back in January. This is a follow up to that article.
Since August is Nutrition Month, I felt that it would be appropriate to do a follow up post to the one I made back in January. While the previous article talked about more holistic approaches, this one would round up everything and make it more well rounded especially for those who have teenagers at home.
1. Drink Milk
Teenagers still need to drink milk. Contrary to popular belief that it is only kids who need to drink milk, teenagers also need to drink milk. Adults too!
In our household, we all still drink milk on a daily basis because it aids our bones and teeth. It also helps you to stay strong and fight diseases.
Yes, sleep really matters. When people say sleep is for the weak, it is exactly what will happen to you when you don't sleep. You will become weak and sluggish.Then you will get sick and that's never a good thing.
Ideally, you are supposed to sleep between 6 to 8 hours a day but if you can't, make sure that you are able to make up for it on weekends or days off.
Admittedly, we can never get all of the nutrients that we need from the food we eat. This is where multivitamins come into play.
Financial constraints and busy lifestyles have caused nearlny 54% of Filipino households to experience food insecurity, data from the Department of Science and Technology-Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI) showed.
These households experience limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods, which hinders them from consuming the ideal serving of fruits and vegetables needed for a proper diet and lifestyle. These ultimately lead to poor nutrition and health problems.
Since we can't buy all the veggies and fruits that we need to consume daily without breaking the bank, we can instead get multivitamins that are priced fairly and that works to truly improve our body.
Nutrilite™ highlights its 9-step traceability process, or “Behind the Label” approach. This contains information not just about traceability but gives information on its heritage and the key ingredient for its supplements – phytonutrients, each with a unique phytonutrient fingerprint or signature that contains a broad spectrum of nutrients closer to a natural spectrum found in whole fruits and vegetables.
It doesn't have to be anything crazy. You just need to sweat for 20 - 30 minutes a day to get your system going and staying healthy.
Choose something that you enjoy doing whether it be dancing, walking, running, or mix martial arts. When you do something that you enjoy, it won't feel like exercising.
5. Down Time
This is probably one of most overlooked ways to stay healthy. When you are too stressed, you become restless. You don't get enough sleep. You overeat or don't eat at all. Choosing to have down time to relax and free your mind from everything matters as much as what you eat, drink, how much sleep, and exercise you get.
If you are able to combine all these tips, you will be able to strike a balance on your life and stay healthy. Of course these aren't guaranteed but it does give you an advantage over those who don't practice these things.

Drinking milk helps really? I thought adults are not supposed to drink milk! That is interesting.ReplyDelete
What? Where did you get that idea? Milk is good for our bones and yes, it helps to induce sleep as long as you drink warm milk before sleep.Delete
Yes I take vitamins daily. Two things I am still struggling with: Sleep and drink milk. I am trying to get better at managing my sleep to have at least 6 hours daily.ReplyDelete
6 hour sleep is something that I have learned to include in my daily life nowadays.Delete
Great tips! Sleep is super important. Exercise is key as well.ReplyDelete
I need to learn to include exercise in my daily life.Delete
I love being reminded to stay healthy and mindful. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Welcome. Crazy as it sounds, we all need this.Delete
I agree that we need balance in our life. The sedentary lifestyle is not healthy. Even during the lockdown, I motivated myself to do exercises just to stay active.ReplyDelete
I've been sedentary the whole of last year. I had a CS operation so I wasn't allowed to move much.Delete
I very much agree with multivitamins. My husband and I always take those in the morning to stay healthy. Exercise is also a great way for staying healthy, of course!ReplyDelete
I got vitamins and sleep down pat now. Exercise, I still struggle with.Delete
I love drinking milk, it tastes great and helps me sleep.ReplyDelete
I know right? Me too!Delete
I'm doing terribly at all of this. I've had a cold all week, so I haven't been sleeping and I can't exercise. It's awful.ReplyDelete
If you have peppermint or eucalyptus around, try inhaling some. It helps with easing colds.Delete
I take as much as possible at any chance I can get.ReplyDelete
We all need to.Delete
Down time is my favorite. It really allows us to regroup, relax, and even come up with cool ideas.ReplyDelete
I force myself to do this once a week nowadays. We all need it.Delete
