					Making Changes for a Healthier Daily Life
When you are learning how you are going to be healthier you have to make sure that you
understand what your body needs. You want to take the time to learn what your body is missing
and work on that deficit.

First, you want to make sure that you are taking the time to get up and move your body. Being
physically active is absolutely necessary and if your body is not active you can suffer some very
serious repercussions.

You want to make sure that you understand that your body should be moving on a daily basis.
Some people run once a week or participate in a fitness class once a week and think that they are
moving their body enough.

Moving your body does not mean that you have to participate in traditional exercises. You can
easily take your kids out and hit a baseball or even start playing the sport that you have always
wanted to try.

Drink Enough Water

Second, you want to make sure that you are drinking enough water. When you are drinking
water on a consistent basis you will start to notice a difference in the way that your skin feels and
in your energy level.

Many people drink soda or even juices throughout their day. When you are drinking sugary
drinks or really any drink but water you will be consuming many empty calories that are not
necessary to stay healthy and nourished.

                                                     While you are taking the time to be healthy
                                                     you should include your family members.
                                                     You want to make sure that you understand
                                                     how to incorporate healthy habits into your
                                                     children’s life from a very young age.

                                                     You can establish some of these healthy
                                                     habits by simply spending time with your
                                                     kids and having fun. There are a lot of
                                                     people that choose to go on a family walk to
                                                     encourage their children to exercise on a
                                                     consistent basis.

These positive feelings can help them to continue to exercise throughout the rest of their life.
You do not want to make your children feel like exercising is a chore and you should not
cultivate a negative attitude towards this type of exercise.

Another great way to make sure that your children understand how they are going to stay healthy
is to give them a vitamin every day. Making sure that they understand what the vitamin is and
how it helps them can enable them to create healthy habits of their own later on.

Explaining to your child why you are encouraging them to be healthy and how to be healthy is
very beneficial. Some parents do not include their child in the reasoning process so the child is
never fully aware of what is going on.

Proper Hygiene

Part of learning to be healthy is also learning proper hygiene. You have to make sure that your
child learns how to bathe and wash his or her hands properly so that they can eventually
complete these tasks on their own.

Washing your child’s hands with them when they are young can help them to wash their hands
when they are older. They should get a feel for the length of time that they should be washing
their hands and when it is necessary to wash hands.

After your child uses the restroom or when they come into the house from playing outside they
should know that they need to wash their hands. The more ingrained that this becomes when
they are young the easier it will be to continue the habit.

Some children have a hard time enjoying taking a bath. When you find that your children are in
this position you want to make sure that you find ways to make bath time fun and rewarding for
your child.

You can create a reward system to encourage your child to get into the bath. Some parents will
buy special bath toys that can only be played with while their child is in the bath so that there is
an added incentive to get into the bath.

Leading a healthier lifestyle may require some small and simple changes in your life. Take the
time to assess where you can make these changes so that you will have a healthier life.
