Sun, Water, Sleep. The natural ways to live healthy life at no fee at all!
Did you know the secrets to leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle comes absolutely free!
Yes, we are bestowed with abundant sunshine, water and a choice to get a good restful sleep to enjoy an optimal well-being.
Let’s delve on these in detail. Make a habit to use them all to de-stress ourselves and live a life full of happiness
Research has shown that as little as 3-15 minutes of sunshine per day has a great effect on mood. Sunshine helps us to get the Vitamin D that our bodies need. In fact, sunshine is the primary source of Vitamin D for us and the secondary method is Vitamin D supplements.
Vitamin D helps us make serotonin, a feel-good hormone in our body that improves our well-being with good mood and sleep pattern. Besides promoting our wellness, Vitamin D is essential for good bone health and is very beneficial against cancer, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, fractures, falls and more.
Another free source of good health is water. Our body is made of 75% of water. It uses water in all its cells, organs, and tissues to help regulate temperature and maintain other bodily functions. Because our body loses water through sweating, working and digestion, it's important to rehydrate and replenish it over and over again. As a matter of fact, one of the simplest health habits we can have is to drink plenty of water to enhance energy, flush out toxins, improve skin and boost digestion.
As per ancient Ayurveda, drinking water in the morning can help to cleanse the body and stimulate the functions of the organs and systems without putting pressure on them.
Did you know, sleep is the time when the body works to its fullest ability to clean the body of toxins! That’s why dedicating enough time to sleep is vital for our body to function well. Short term restriction of sleep results in a variety of adverse physiological effects including activation of the stress response, high blood pressure, weak immunity and poor cognitive performance. According to research, just one night of poor sleep can have direct impact on the mood and anxiety levels.
So, do make it a point to sleep for 7-8 hours every day, drink plenty of water and bask in the sun to enjoy a healthy, stress-free life.
