9 Ways to Prevent Disease – Health Essentials

Prevention has always won its brownie points over cure – so why not take efforts towards this ‘prevention’ to ensure you live a hale and hearty life that’s disease free? And life’s too precious to waste it just like that by falling sick time and again! So here are a few tips you need to implement in your lifestyle, which is sure to make a difference in life:

Begin your day with a dose of what you love the most:
I won’t go all traditional and say drink a glass of lemon water with a spoonful of honey in it – but what I’m going to do is give you options! You can choose from the first option that I just talked about, or start off your day with a cup full of gooseberry juice. Another option is chewing two raw garlic cloves and drinking lukewarm water over it. Choose one of these three or alternate this every three days and watch the difference it makes in your health!

Quit addictions:
Most of the lung and liver ailments are caused due to abuse of smoking and alcohol. If you’re addicted to anything that you know is harmful to your health, you need to get away from it as fast as possible. It’s tough, but not impossible – more importantly, you owe it to yourself.

Sleep early, rise early:
Sleeping soon, on time and not wasting your precious night’s sleep on browsing through the internet or binge-watching shows is very important. Getting proper sleep is a great way to boost your body’s immunity, making it more productive and disease resistant. Waking up early will help you find time to do all the things you love! Great way to start and end your day!

Exercise every day:
Okay, I know every day is a lot to ask  – but hey, your body deserves it! Working out in some form or the other is essential – it’s not necessary you go in for high-intensity cardio every day. A nice long walk early in the morning is just perfect. Just get your body up and moving every day – you’ll be grateful for this time you invest in yourself!


Watch what goes in:
Binging into junk food once a while is fun. But you need to realize that it’s no more fun when you get habituated to eating junk food often. Ditch those processed foods, all the sugary stuff and switch over to raw, unprocessed and healthy stuff.

De-stress yourself:
Most of the diseases are caused due to excess stress – and the solution is pretty
simple, distress yourself! Pick a hobby or something that you love to do and works as a therapy for you. It will help you relax when you are super stressed!

Watch your weight:

Another primary cause that leads to entry for lifestyle diseases. Keeping a tab on your weight and maintaining a healthy BMI is important. And you know what to do to maintain your weight – exercise and eat healthily!

Get yourself checked:
Make sure you don’t miss those scheduled visits to your doctor. This will help you keep a tab on yourself in a better way. Also, your doctor will be in a better position to help you know your deficiencies and work on them quickly.

Give yourself time:
Taking a break from your hectic schedule once a while is quite important – you cannot afford to work yourself out to an extent where you have no time for yourself. Ensure you have enough spanned breaks to help you relax and then get back with a bang!
