If you want to improve your health, it is possible to do so with a few small and simple habits.

Science has also confirmed that the following habits are important to improve health.

Prioritize sleep
Imagine if you tried to run your smartphone with 12% battery for the whole day?

A similar situation occurs with lack of sleep.

The body needs sleep not only to recharge itself, but when we are sleeping, our body performs several important functions, such as learning new things and consolidating memories.

Adults need at least 7 hours of sleep every night, so make it a habit in the New Year.

More walking
A walk outside the house has positive effects on both the body and the mind.

A 30-minute brisk walk daily strengthens the immune system, reduces joint pain, and makes it easier to maintain a healthy body weight.

Similarly, walking reduces the severity of symptoms of depression or anxiety, while also having a positive effect on mental health.

Feeling the stress? So pick up a book and start reading instead of your phone.

One study discovered that studying for 30 minutes a day significantly reduced stress.

A study habit also benefits mental health both on a short and long term basis.

Meditation is an excellent way to reduce stress and improve mental health.

It is also quite easy to make it a habit and only 5 minutes should be taken out of your daily routine for this purpose.

Spending time in nature
Research reports suggest that spending time in nature improves brain function, improves concentration, and reduces the risk of mental illness.

Now it is not necessary to go for a walk outside the city, going to a garden, lake, river or sea near your home can be useful.

Good food choices
Make it a habit to eat more vegetables, whole grains, nuts and pulses, along with reducing consumption of red and processed meat.

This diet will reduce the risk of various chronic diseases while improving the physical energy.

Don’t forget to drink water
Since most of our body is made up of water, the body needs more of it.

Drinking adequate amount of water facilitates the elimination of waste from our body while improving the health of the joints.

Likewise, the digestive system is also benefited while the risk of constipation, bad breath and other medical problems is reduced.
