[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]our overall health might be a little vague, but there are definitely ways to improve the quality of your entire body and not just one particular area.
If you’re at the gym and you’re working out your legs, you’re essentially only contributing to the betterment of your legs. I’m talking about ways to increase the health of your WHOLE body!
If you’re a health nut, or even if you’re just somebody looking for ways to be healthier, here are 5 ways to get in the best shape of your life:
#1 – Eat Pineapple
Seems weird, but you need to be regularly eating pineapple to get a really healthy body. Did you know that there is over 200% of your daily vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, and vitamin B requirements in just 2 servings of pineapple?
And 2 servings isn’t even that much. It’s like 2 slices of 3 inch pineapple.
And the best part? It’s amazingly good! You might think all of that sugar would be bad, but it actually transforms into good nutrients in your body.
#2 – Eat Good Fats
The ‘fat is bad’ fad that took place a decade ago is finally gone. Fat is actually GOOD for you! But where do you find good fat? You can find good fats in olive oil, olives, nuts, and even the fat in steaks and burgers.
This good fat will help your body take advantage of the nutrients that are stored inside of it.
#3 – If You Sit A Lot, Stand More
This is especially true if you work an office type of job. Most people in these environments sit for up to 7 hours per day, and then they sit for another 5 hours when they get home.
All of this sitting is no good for you, and if you’re not standing enough and moving your blood around, it can contribute to heart disease, blood clots, and other harmful diseases!
Standing just once every hour is enough to get the blood moving again.
#4 – Do Full Body Workouts
Things like kickboxing, boxing, various martial arts programs, and anything involving rigorous activity is considered a full body workout.
If you’re working your whole body for an entire hour, you’re able to workout all of your muscle groups evenly. If you’re a gym nut, you usually go about 5 days per week.
But this sort of training only takes 2 days per week tops!
So that’s all you need to be in shape for the rest of your life. Get out there and live!
