Getting Refreshing Fresh Air
One of the most important things for keeping yourself healthy is getting a bit of sunlight and fresh air every day (or, if you are stuck in an office all day and do not have enough time during lunch to get sunlight and fresh air, at least getting some on weekends), but one of the reasons many people fail to get the sunlight and fresh air they need is because they make it feel like a chore. In order to keep your quota of sunlight and fresh air from feeling like a chore that you have to accomplish, you will want to find a refreshing way to get the fresh air into your body that it so strongly craves. Jogging every day is certainly good for you, but it is even better when you jog away from the city instead of jogging on an indoor track or along a sidewalk; look for a pretty jogging trail away from the city, and try to visit it a few days a week for a walk or jog. Hiking in the forest is another great way to get the fresh air your body needs; even though you are unlikely to get as much sunlight by hiking in the forest as you might while participating in other activities, you will get plenty of refreshing fresh air, and plenty of relaxing time in nature. But of course, exerting yourself physically is not the only way for you to get that refreshing fresh air you need; one of the best ways of all to relax and unwind completely while also getting some fresh air into your body is to simply sit outside in a quiet spot as you "do nothing" - pack a picnic, or bring a fishing pole with you, and find a meadow or a lake you can spend some time by, being quiet and doing nothing. When you start to look for ways to get refreshing fresh air, you will find that your body rewards you by feeling much better, and your mind will reward you in the exact same way, feeling more relaxed and more permanently at ease.
