7 Simple Steps to Become Your Best Version

Carol Evenson Nov 6, 2019
The term wellness has been tossed around quite a lot. People are searching for some way to improve their health both physical and emotional. And that can be a great goal. Improving your health can help you feel well so that you can enjoy more things you love. Here are 7 simple ways to be a better version of yourself.

Drink Water

Water is the single largest component of your body by volume, making up nearly 60% of total volume on average. Water is involved in a whole host of functions that your body performs every day. So you need to stay hydrated so that your body doesn't get depleted.

Eat Plant - Based Food

Plants should be the main focus of your diet. This doesn't mean eschew all meat and animal products - unless you want to. Make plant-based foods the stars of your meals. Oatmeal, spaghetti squash, mushrooms, nuts, beans and legumes are excellent sources of vitamins, nutrients, and fiber.

Embrace Whole Grains

As long as you don't have food allergies or sensitivities, whole grains should be a major component of your diet. Skip bleached and enriched flour and try something different like amaranth, bulger, wild rice.

Go for a Walk

Health professionals have been united behind this for years. Simply put, walking works. It is easy on your body and joints, and walking is safe for most people. Of course, if it's been a long time since you did any exercise, you may want to check in with your doctor first to ask about any special considerations.

Ditch Yo-Yo Diets

It's time to say goodbye to yo-yo and fad diets for good. Instead, try to maintain a healthy weight by combining exercise and a balanced diet. If you need a jumpstart to help you, try adding a supplement based lifestyle improvement program like Le-Vel Thrive to your routine.

Take a Nap

Sleep is one of those things, like air, water, and food, you absolutely need to survive. So, why not get enough to actually thrive? Aim to get at least seven hours of sleep every day. Sleep deprivation sets in after as little as four days without adequate rest, which is shorter than the average work week.

Wash Your Hands

Washing hands is a simple step that can benefit health. It kills germs and stops spread of illnesses like cold and flu. Make sure to lather up after using the restroom, handling pets, farm animals, and when handling raw foods.
