Choose five tips which are most important to follow to be healthy.
Want to become a healthier person? It’s all about making gradual (постепенные) changes. Following the tips in this article offers several benefits (the usefulness of a situation) for you: lower risk of several diseases, and the chance to live a long and happy life. • Get lots of sleep. To be healthy you’ll need 8–10 hours of sleep every day. This keeps you awake and attentive, so you don’t have to drink caffeine and sugar-loaded energy drinks. • Laugh and smile! Smiling and laughing a lot, as it has been scientifically proved, keeps you healthier. • Do nothing for a short while. Staying in a dark, quiet place without having any stressful thoughts for about ten minutes will help you relax (rest) and feel better. Just do this twice a day. • Eat more fruit and vegetables. Fruit and vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet (the food that a person usually eats). Try to get at least 2–3 portions of fruit per day. • Drink water! Good old H2O is key to making you work throughout the day. Try drinking 250-gram glasses of water three times a day. It helps you re-energise and keep going. Not drinking enough fresh water leads to headaches and other problems. Do this, and you’ll stay in good condition. • Get a little exercise every day. This will not only make you feel better, and make you look better, but help you to get through the day. • Stretch! It feels great! From when you wake up in the morning, to your gym class, this easy form of muscle exercise warms you up and makes you more flexible (able to bend and move easily). • Run and jog (running at a slow speed for exercise)! This doesn’t necessarily mean run five miles every morning, just for about 10 minutes twice a week will keep you in shape. Don’t ever run for an hour and then suddenly stop and sit on the couch for another hour. It will hurt to walk the next day. • Challenge yourself. If you do 10 push-ups (using your arms to raise and lower your body when lying on the floor) as your maximum, try going for 12! Little challenges like this keep your body nice and fit (strong, able to do physical exercises without getting tired). • Do something you love. Play with a pet, go swimming, ride a bike or go for a walk. If you had a bad day at school, doing things you love to do will keep you in a good mood and take out your anger. Not only is this fun, but it lets you be yourself for a while (какое-то время). Try it! • Feel good about yourself! There is always going to be someone in the room who does at least one thing better than you, so don’t compare yourself to other people! Find things you are good at, and use your talents! • Positive emotions are healthy, prolong life and make living pleasant.
