Internet Marketers are busy people, so when it comes to health and eating, it’s all about convenience. I’ve put together a list of tips to easily help you live healthier.
1) Drink Water. Staying hydrated increases energy, burns calories, and flushes out toxins. Everyone’s water intake varies, so here’s a simple equation to follow. Your weight divided by 2 and that’s how many ounces a day (at minimum) you should be drinking.
2) Cut Out Caffeine. You may not want to hear it, but I’m giving it to you anyway. Caffeine becomes an addiction and it’s acidic to the body and causes your PH balance to be off. This creates a toxic environment and the body can’t function properly in an acidic or toxic environment. Switch to herbal teas.
3) More Fruits & Vegetables. According to choosemyplate.gov, males between the ages of 19-50 should consume 2 cups of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables a day. Women between the ages of 19-50 should consume 1 ½ cups of fruit and 2 ½ cups of vegetables a day.
4) Blend It! Since we should be consuming large amounts of fruits and veggies daily for optimum health, or if you don’t like the taste of fruits and veggies, start blending up some creative mixes. Blending smoothies also cuts time on preparing meals and still benefits you nutritionally.
5) Dried Fruit, Nuts, & Seeds. If you like to munch on snacks while you work, choose nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. This variety will naturally increase energy and is great for heart health.
6) Go Bananas! Bananas contain vitamin B6, good carbohydrates, and tryptophan, therefore serotonin is released after consumption. This means bananas can help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. Bananas are also great for energy.
7) Fruits for Eyesight. Growing up you may have been told carrots help your eyesight, but as adults fruit has become more essential. Archives of Ophthalmology indicated, “Eating 3 or more servings of fruit per day may lower your risk of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in adults”. But still continue to eat those vegetables too!
8 ) Take a Break. Take a 20-30 minute break for a brisk walk. 30 minutes a day can help drop the weight away! You will also benefit by receiving more vitamin D from the sun if you work indoors all day.
9) Posture. Take notice in your posture, the more you slouch or aren’t in an ergonomically correct position, the more stress builds and your energy will decrease. Over time incorrect positions can cause wrist, neck, and back issues.
10) Stretch. Take the time to stretch your extremities every morning, afternoon, and evening. Stretching increases oxygen flow and improves mobility.
Computers are Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) that drain our energy and can damage our eyesight. I encourage you to follow these simple tips because as we work to be the best in search engines, it’s important to manage your self-engine!
