Health connects individuals to the society and helps build a community. However, the major challenge people face in the modern times is how to actually gain immaculate health and sustain a healthy living. In this article, we will discuss in detail how we can upgrade our lives with good health and bring happiness to our communities. Here is a list of nine healthy habits that you can do every day to help create a healthier lifestyle. 1. Wake up early Alright, you don’t need to rise and shine with the sun every morning, but waking up at a decent (early) hour is essential for optimal health. The human body and brain have evolved to follow a circadian rhythm that helps to regulate sleep and wake patterns that are set by our natural environment, specifically the rising and setting of the sun. This natural circadian rhythm also corresponds with the body’s natural cortisol levels: a hormone well known for its role in our metabolism, immune system, stress response and energy levels. In a balanced state, cortisol levels start to rise 2-3 hours after the onset of sleep and continue to rise into the early morning helping to wake us. 2. Drink water before anything else Although it is imperative to drink water throughout the day, one of the best (and easiest) times to drink water is first thing in the morning. So, before you start sipping on your morning brew, drink a glass of water. Not only is it refreshing, but it can help to hydrate the body while aiding digestion and metabolism at the same time. 3. Keep moving Due to our sedentary lifestyles we are moving less than our previous generations. Many of us work sitting down, travel sitting down, and relax sitting down, so it is becoming more and more important that we create ways to move since they are no longer occurring organically. Whether you love biking, swimming, dancing or going to the gym, it is imperative that you find some form of movement that you enjoy and make time for it on a daily basis. HEALTH CONNECTS US ALL
