“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.” –Benjamin Franklin
How does one stay healthy?
It is a question many people ask and still fail to find a satisfying answer. We say this because while everyone may know the answer on how to be healthy and stay on the same path, not everyone is willing to do the work, the hard work, to make it happen.
It is not always easy, but the truth is, it is one of the most rewarding things people can do. The way to healthy living? Following the wise words of Benjamin Franklin, these are the things we do, or strive to do most times:
Get enough sleep
A good sleep will always pay off. When you get enough sleep each time, you reduce the risks of diseases, you have enough energy, you protect your brain, and overall, you stay healthy.
Wake up early
There are things to be done early in the morning when the rest of the world still sleeps. Go for a jog, a short walk perhaps, or hit the gym. Attend to your emails or make important decisions. You will be surprised how much you will get done and how much time you still got left.
Walk as much as you can. Keep your brain busy and active. Do not forget to exercise. We know these may be the things you do first thing but sometimes, you get busy you forget about things that are not jobs or part of it.
Happy people are always healthy people. Focus on the positive and maintain happy thoughts. This will help you deal with stressful situations better, and your view of life will always be on the bright side of things.
In the end, you know what is best for you and your health. Follow what your heart and mind tell you, and you will not be disappointed. The healthiest people are the wealthiest, even if we don’t know it.
How about you? What makes you happy? What is the meaning of happiness to you?
