Catch this eye opening episode of Pulse Daily

Health they say is wealth and with increased stressful daily routine we have all come to be ladened with, it is important to keep our health iin constant check. And pay attention to things we ordinarily would pay no attention to.

Here are 6 ways to improve our health...

1. Check your weight regularly.

If this is practise, we know when to add to our calories for instance or reduce them. Its necessary to always check our BMI's- body mass index...

2. Drink less

Most people are unaware that regularly drinking more alcohol can lead to a wide range of long-term health problems, including cancers, strokes, and heart attacks. For example, studies reveal men who regularly drink more than three to four units a day are three times more likely to have a stroke.

3. Eat less salt and fat

Excessive salt and fat in our diets is a major cause of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Too much salt in your food can cause high blood pressure and make you three times more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke!

4. Exercise regularly

The benefits of exercise aren't limited to losing weight. Even if you’re slim, you’ll still get health benefits from exercising. Regular activity can lower the risk of developing major chronic diseases such as coronary heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes, by up to 50%!

5. Eat more fruit and veggies

For a healthy and balanced diet, try to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Research shows that eating at least 400g of fruit and vegetables a day can lower your risk of serious health problems such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and obesity!

6. Improve your sleep

Nearly everyone has problems sleeping at some point in their life. If you’re not getting enough sleep, it can affect relationships, your performance at work, and it can delay recovery from illness

And as always, make it a habit to visit the hospital for regular general check up.
