With April nearing to an end and summer right around the corner, are you starting your annual summer slimming diet? We’ve rounded up 5 health tips that will improve your health and help you stay in shape not just in the summer, but all year round!
1. Drink that H2O
Water is essential for a healthy life. Did you know that humans can survive 3 weeks without food, but only 3~5 days without water? Water keeps you hydrated to keep you feeling energized and stay active. It also promotes digestion and helps to flush away toxins.
Water is the secret to smooth glowing skin. For those who are worried about the signs of aging, water reduces the appearance of those fine lines. It also prevents breakouts.
2. Say No to Empty Calories
Does your hand reach out to potato chips, buttered popcorn, sweets and pop while watching TV? Why not switch them to some crunchy nuts and dried raisins? A small change of habit leads to a much healthier lifestyle and a fitter body. Cut down, or even better, cut out those empty calories from your diet and see what happens 🙂
3. Berry Buffet
Berry season is here! Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, you name it. Berries have high levels of antioxidants, more than most fruits! So why not throw some of that delicious goodness into your salads and smoothies? These inexpensive fruits are one of the most powerful disease fighting food!
4. Vitamin C? Si.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in vegetables and fruits. It is an essential component for collagen production to repair and regenerate tissues. Many good sources include red bell pepper, leafy greens, kiwi, broccoli, berry, and many more. So remember to load those fruits and veggies!
5. Be More Spiritual
Do not underestimate the power of prayer. Your connection with God strengthens with every prayer.
Previous studies conducted by Harvard University found that patients who were prayed for recovered faster than those who weren’t. And if you so wish to heal your beloved ones who are sick, to what extent would God do to heal his people, you?
Communicate spiritually and ask for his blessings. Just like the Bible says (Matthew 7:7) “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
