Prevention is always better than cure. Here are ten tips on how to live a long and healthy life. Also, the same lifestyle that helps prevent disease helps with weight loss.
1. Wake up early every day
I do not know if it will make you rich, but it will make you healthier. Your body needs enough sleep, neither too much nor too little.
2. Get enough exercise
In the past, people had to use their bodies in their normal work. But today, one gets up, goes to work, then sits down, gets up to go home, and sits down again for the rest of the day when he gets home. In such a life there is no physical labor. This physical inactivity is the main reason for many diseases. If our regular jobs don't involve much physical activity, we should incorporate walking and other activities into our daily lives.
Exercise is very important for human health and has been proven to be a good remedy for many known diseases.
How much exercise is enough?
To stay healthy, you need at least 10 to 15 minutes of exercise every day. Also, you can combine your daily activities with exercise to save time.
Here are a few examples of what you can do:
- Walk at least 5,000 steps a day
- Instead of utilizing the elevator, climb the stairs.
-Jog instead of walking.
3. Keep your BMI (Body Mass Index) within the levels
What is BMI and how can knowing it help improve your health? By knowing your BMI, you can determine whether your weight is within the normal range or is overweight (or underweight).
BMI is directly related to health risk; the higher the BMI, the higher the risk. That's why you need to know your body mass index and keep it safe between 18.5 and 24.8.
BMI Formula (Metric): BMI = (Weight in Kilograms/ (Height in Meters) x (Height in Meters)
BMI formula (English): BMI = (Weight in pounds/ (Height in inches) x (Height in inches)) x 703
4. Sleep when sleepy.
Even when their bodies are telling them it's time to sleep, many people keep themselves awake too late. Ayurvedic and yoga doctors also say that it is best to sleep at night and remain active during the day. But people, like students, will study late at night with coffee and tea. Others tend to be active at night and sleep during the day. We can do it, but it affects our health. Alternative health practitioners say that this type of unnatural lifestyle is a contributing factor to cancer and heart diseases. Also, remember to get sufficient sleep every night.
5. Eat when you feel hungry
This is also a simple concept, but again we often go against the body's messages. If you eat out of habit or out of social pressure at certain times of the day, you will not be able to digest your food properly, even if you are not hungry. Acidity and indigestion are induced, creating the potential for other complex diseases to take root. Hunger is a sign of health, but if you're not hungry, wait a while and eat. (If you wait a reasonable amount of time and still have no appetite, see your doctor because something is wrong.)
How to eat well?
Your body needs proper nutrition with a proper daily intake of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and carbohydrates.
A balanced diet can do a lot of things for you. It

7. Wash with warm water before going to bed
As mentioned above, adequate sleep is essential to maintain health. Washing your vital motor and sensory organs (arms, hands, eyes, feet, mouth, genitals) with warm water before going to bed will help you relax and prepare for deep sleep.
8. Meditate regularly
Your body is connected to your mind. Many diseases at this time are mental illnesses. Stress and anxiety affect our physical health. Meditation is a mental exercise that allows you to let go of the worries of life, among other things. Learn a simple technique and do it regularly.
9. Try to avoid alcohol.
Avoiding alcohol is important to improving your life. If you are determined to lead a healthy life, avoid alcohol at any cost.
Alcohol has many side effects.
-It causes damage to the heart and central nervous system.

10. Avoid smoking
There are many dangers to smoking. If you smoke, you should stop. Smoking can harm you and everyone around you. Smokers have a higher risk of heart disease. Cigarette smokers have a higher risk of lung cancer. A lot of people die each year from lung cancer caused by smoking.
Most diseases caused by emphysema and bronchitis are directly related to smoking.
If you want to stay healthy, you should stop smoking.
