Do you want to improve your health? Would like to live a healthier, more satisfying life? Are you hoping to live a good long life? Make these healthy habits part of your daily life to life your best life possible.

Make a walk part of your everyday routine. You'll feel less stressed out after a walk. Walking is an ideal gentle exercise that everyone can do. It helps prevent osteoporosis by increasing bone density. You'll burn calories while walking and you'll soak in the rays, which will help your mood and give you some vitamin D. Walking will help you stay positive, and it can can be done with a child or neighbor, too.

Give your body a good stretch. Take the time to lengthen those muscles each day and you’ll prevent injury and increase your flexibility. Good flexibility translates to better balance, which reduces your chances of falling and injuring yourself. Stretching helps you release stress and feel better overall.

Fill your cup with tea or water. Replace all those high-calorie, artificial drinks with these two super-hydrators. Water is a super-flusher, ridding your body of toxins while it hydrates. Tea lets you enjoy a flavor boost while containing no calories and plenty of antioxidants.

Take care of your teeth; brush and floss daily. You'd be surprised to learn how interconnected dental health is to your overall health. The simple habit of daily flossing can lengthen your life by years. For best dental health, use a soft bristled brush, floss gently, and rinse after each session.

Eat something that was just picked every single day. Food that was recently picked is the best. Fresh produce is packed with vitamins, nutrients, enzymes, and fiber – all things that feed your body and promote good health.

In addition to these good habits, try to end one bad habit each year. Select one, and give yourself the entire year to beat it. Over the course of a lifetime you will end up improving your life tremendously if you quit smoking, over-drinking, and eating poorly. You know what your bad habits are. Take it upon yourself to conquer those habits, replacing them with habits that are best for you.
