5 Simple and Completely Natural Ways To Be Healthier

Reading time 3 min.

Life is busy and schedules can get overwhelming. Sometimes, in the chaos that ensues, self-care takes a back seat to convenience. Get back to basics with these five natural ways to boost your overall health.

1. Drink More Water

You really can’t start much simpler than this. Try to drink at least eight full glasses of water each day. The actual amount your body needs will vary based on a number of factors, but that is a good starting point. You can get a more accurate assessment of your daily fluid needs by answering a few questions in an online nutrition calculator. No matter what your results, staying hydrated is crucial to getting healthier.

Why is water so important to your health? Consider the fact that your body is about 60 percent water by weight and you can start to see the big picture. Every single cell that makes up who you are has water. If you want them to stay alive you need to keep them hydrated.

When you are fully hydrated, your body can perform at its best. That translates into more energy, better focus, and possibly even a more upbeat attitude. Physically, you may notice less muscle soreness, softer skin, and better digestion.

In fact, water plays a big role in maintaining the health of your gut. And a healthy gut contributes to better overall health outcomes.

If you struggle to get enough water throughout the day, try dressing it up a bit. Carbonation gives sparkling waters a unique zip that may make it more palatable to you. You can also try infusing plain water with fruit. Not only will it give the water a flavor boost, but you’ll get some vitamins and antioxidants, too.

2. Increase Your Activity Levels

Physical activity does more than get your body into shape. It also raises energy levels, gives a boost to your mood, and can help increase your confidence. And those are all great components of a healthy lifestyle.

It can be difficult to motivate yourself to get moving, though. Finding a community of support can solve that problem. Workout buddies not only provide motivation, but they also hold you accountable to your fitness schedule.

You might want to try documenting your fitness journey and adventures on social media. Many Le-Vel Thrive users have found this to be a great way to share their triumphs and find support for their tribulations.

3. Eat for Your Health

The food you eat can really affect your physical and emotional wellbeing. Instead of following fad diets, try to eat a variety of whole, natural foods. Resist the temptation to eliminate entire food groups unless you have a health condition that requires it.

Both the DASH and Mediterranean diet plans are consistently ranked among the best diets for your health every year. While they favor vegetables, fruits, and whole grains over red meat, they both offer a good dose of flexibility. And a flexible diet is one you can adapt to your tastes, which makes you more likely to stick with it.

4. Take a Deep Breath

There is a lot of science behind the chemicals in plants. Called terpenes, these give oranges that fresh smell and pine that earthy, astringent aroma. And they are what makes aromatherapy such a powerful tool for your health.

Aromatherapy uses the scents of plants to stimulate reactions in the body. They can be uplifting, calming, and energizing. Some scents, like peppermint and eucalyptus, may help ease muscle aches and soreness. Others have been shown to boost immune responses and help eliminate germs.

5. Go to Bed Earlier

Finish out your day a little earlier to get the full benefits of restorative sleep. While you are softly snoozing, your body is repairing damage from the day’s activities, balancing hormone and blood sugar levels, and processing and storing memories. And those are all vitally important to good health.

Try setting up a nighttime routine so you can get yourself mentally and physically prepared for an earlier and regular bedtime. Lowering the temperature and dimming the lights in your bedroom can make falling asleep easier.

No matter how busy you are, there are some simple ways you can add healthy behaviors into your daily routine. And the best part is that these fixes are all completely natural.
