Getting healthy can seem like such a big task. Getting healthy doesn't have to be hard, making small changes can make a big difference. Here are some simple things you can do everyday to get healthy: 1. Walk more-Walking has shown to help people lose weight, and lower their blood pressure. Aim for at least 30 minutes of brisk walking and a total of 10,000 steps per day. If you are unsure of how much you need to walk wear a pedometer, research shows people who wear a pedometer walk more. 2. Eat more fish-Evidence shows that darker types of fish (salmon, tuna, mackerel and herring) are good for your heart and brain. They have also shown to lower the risk of cancer. 3. Drink more water-Water is an essential for good health. Water  helps maintain the balance of body fluids, reduces caloric intake and helps your organs function properly. 4. Get enough sleep-You really do need at least 8 hours of sleep a night. Sleep has many benefits: you will feel better, it decreases the risk for cardiovascular disease, and boosts memory. 5. Reduce sugar in your diet-Decreasing your sugar will actually increase your energy. Sugary foods create highs and lows in your energy levels. There are many more steps you can take to get healthy but these few tips are things you can implement without making major changes to your life.
