What Are the Best Things You Can Do to Improve Your Health?

With so much information about diet and nutrition, it can be hard to sort through it all to find the best ways to improve your health. Several studies show that despite receiving information about healthy living, most people do not focus on the health habits that offer the most benefits.

What are the best things you can do to improve your health? Avoid tobacco, maintain a healthy weight with a body mass index (BMI) of 18.5 to 25.0, eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day, and be physically active 30 or more minutes a day at least five times a week.

Each one of these habits offers significant health benefits, so achieving even just a few is better than none. But, surprisingly, a recent survey showed that 40 percent of those surveyed followed only one of these basic healthful habits, and even more significantly, only three percent carried out all four.

To increase your own health, try to work towards including all of these healthy habits in your daily life. Quit smoking, maintain a healthy weight, eat nutritious food, and get daily exercise. Not only will you cut your chance of experiencing heart disease or cancer, you will increase your energy level and will feel better every day.
