Ever heard the phrase “health is wealth?”
It is very important that we maintain a healthy lifestyle. With all that’s going on in the world it’s quite easy to get sucked in lose yourself in the chaos. If you’re not careful, you might end up cracking under all the stress and pressure and break down.
But in all, we still need to try our best to stay healthy. Living and staying healthy helps not only your physical health but also your mental and psychological health.
A healthy person is a happy person. And you know the best part? Living a healthy lifestyle is super easy to do and maintain. There are just a few simple things you need to do that will set you on the right part. There are a few things to do if you want to stay healthy, but today I’ll be sharing three with you.
Ever since we were kids, we’ve had this drummed into our heads that it just sounds like a broken record now. However our parents and elders didn’t always say this just for show. They kept repeating it because they came to understand the benefits of eating fruits and greens. I for one grew up in a household were eating fruits and veggies were a norm. I didn’t like vegetables at first but now I just can’t stay without eating them regularly. You don’t have to eat them everyday. Work out a timetable and incorporate greens into your diet. Even doctors and dietitians always stress the importance of eating healthy. Healthy food is a very important factor in staying healthy. So if you know you are slacking in this area it’s never too late to start eating healthy food.
I can’t even stress this enough. Exercise is very good for your physical and mental health. Exercising regularly keeps you fit and strong, it sharpens your mind, it helps you build tolerance and it helps you build your stamina. You don’t have to go all out and exercise everyday. A few days a week is OK. And you don’t need to do intense workouts. Just simple exercise routines are OK. Taking walks everyday can even go a long way. If you can hit the gym go ahead, but if you can’t, just make out time to do home workouts.
Drink lots of water
Water is life. There can’t be life without water. To stay fit and healthy you need to be sufficiently hydrated. And for that, you need to be drinking adequate water everyday. You can never drink too much water. Some drink more water than others, but just make sure you drink the right amount your body needs. I can go without eating for a while but I just cannot stay without drinking water. It is advised by doctors that you take a glass of water first thing when you wake up in the morning. Health authorities advice we drink around two gallons of water a day (about 8 glasses). Water has so many health benefits I can’t even begin to outline them here. Just make sure you drink lots of water everyday.

Also, don’t forget the #EndPoliceBrutality protests and campaigns are still on going in my country Nigeria. No matter where you are, please help us trend the hash tag so the whole world hears our voice and puts our government under pressure to cave and heed our demands. We are tired of seeing innocent young boys getting sent to jail and being killed on the streets. #OneWorld #endsars #endswat #endbadgovernance #EndPoliceBrutality #stopthekillings #wearetired
