Having a Healthy Relationship


Here are some tips to having a healthy relationship.

1. Successful relationships take work. They don’t happen in a vacuum. They occur when the couples in them take the risk of sharing what it is that’s going on in their hearts and heads.

2. You can only change yourself, not your partner. If you love someone and think that after a while he or she will alter behaviors you find uncomfortable, think again. If you want changes, put them on the table. so your partner knows what you need.

3. All arguments stem from our own fear or pain. When upset occurs, check out what’s going on inside of you rather than get angry with your partner. Truth is that we usually aren’t upset for the reasons we think we are.

4. Understand that men and women are very different. We’re not from Mars or Venus; we’re not even in the same solar system.

Understanding and celebrating our differences will make living together more peaceful, interesting, and fun.

5. Honor each other in some way every day. Every morning you have the opportunity to make your relationship sweeter and deeper by recommitting to your mate. Feeling respected and cherished by the one you love makes life much nicer.

6. Anger is a waste of time. Anger is also a relationship killer, because it makes you self-absorbed and won’t allow you to see the good. If you are annoyed with your mate, give yourself some time to calm down and then gently discuss what’s going on for you.

7. Get regular tune-ups. Go to a couples workshop, talk with a counselor, or read a relationship book together at least once a year. Even if you don’t think you need it, you will pick up a couple of ideas, and the process alone will strengthen your connection.

8. Find a way to become and stay best friends. For some this sounds unromantic, but for those who live it, most say it’s the best part of their time together.

9. Be responsible for your own happiness. No other person can make you happy. It’s something you have to do on your own. If you feel it’s your partner’s fault, think again, and look within to find out what piece may be missing for you.

10. Give what you want to get. Our needs change with time. If you’d like to feel understood, try being more understanding. If you want to feel more love, try giving more. It’s a simple program that really works.

There are no guarantees, but couples who practice these techniques have longer and stronger relationships than those who are not proactive in their love.

Healthy Lifestyle

H ow healthy are you? Do you have a healthy diet ? Do you exercise regularly ? Do you drink at least 8 glasses of water a day ? Do you get enough sleep every day ? Do you live a healthy lifestyle ?

Our body is our temple, and we need to take care of it to have a healthy life . Do you know that over 65 % of Americans are either obese or overweight ? That ’ s insane! Think of your body as your physical shell to take you through life . If you repeatedly abuse it with unhealthy food , your shell will wear out quickly . While you may look okay on the outside , on the inside, your arteries are getting clogged up with cholesterol and arterial plaque . That ’ s not a pretty sight !

Good health isn ’t just about healthy eating and exercise — it also includes having a positive mental health , a healthy self -image , and a healthy lifestyle . In this article , I share 45 tips to live a healthier life . Bookmark this post and save the tips , because they are going to be vital in living a healthier life .

1 . Drink more water . Most of us don ’ t actually drink enough water every day . Water is essential for our bodies to function — do you know over 60 % of our body is made up of water ? Water is needed to carry out body functions, remove waste , and carry nutrients and oxygen around our body. Since we lose water every day through urine , bowel movements , perspiration and breathing , we need to replenish our water intake.

Furthermore , drinking more water aids in losing weight . A Health . com study carried out among overweight /obese people showed that water drinkers lose 4 .5 more pounds than a control group . The researchers believe that it ’s because drinking more water helps fill your stomach , making you less hungry and less likely to overeat . I agree with that , and I have an added take that your body tries to retain whatever water you have when you don ’t take in enough water , leading to increase in weight. Whereas when you regularly drink water, your body knows that it ’ s going to get its supply of fluids , so it doesn ’t try to retain more water.

The amount of water we need is dependent on various factors such as humidity, your physical activity , and your weight, but generally we need

2 . 7 -3 .7 litres of water intake per day . Since food intake contributes about 20 % of our fluid intake , that means we need to drink about 2 . 0 -3 .0 litres of water, or about 8 -10 glasses ( now you know how the 8 glasses recommendation came about!) . One way to tell if you’re hydrated — your urine should be colorless or slightly yellow. If it ’ s not, you’re not getting enough water! Other signs include : Dry lips , dry mouth , and little urination . Go get some water first before you continue this article !

2 . Get enough sleep . When you don ’t rest well , you compensate by eating more. Usually it ’s junk food . Get enough rest and you don ’t need to snack to stay awake. Also , lack of sleep causes premature aging , and you wouldn ’t want that .

3 . Meditate. Meditation quietens your mind and calms your soul . If you don ’t know how to meditate , don ’ t worry — learn how to meditate in 5 simple steps.

4 . Exercise . Not just a few times a week , but every day . Movement is life . Research has shown that exercising daily brings tremendous benefits to our health , including increase of life span , lowering of risk of diseases , higher bone density , and weight loss . Increase activity in your life . Choose walking over transport for close distances . Climb the stairs instead of taking the lift . Join some aerobics classes . Take up a sport of your liking (see tip # 5 )

5 . Pick exercises you enjoy . When you enjoy the sports, you’ ll naturally want to do them. Exercise isn ’t about suffering and pushing yourself ; it ’s about being healthy and having fun at the same time . Adding variation in your exercises will keep them interesting.

6 . Work out different parts of your body . Don ’t just do cardio (like jogging ). Give your full body a proper work out. The easiest way is to engage in sports, since they work out different muscle groups . Popular sports include basketball , football , swimming , tennis , squash , badminton , frisbee , and more.

7 . Eat more fruits. Fruits contain a plethora of vitamins and minerals . Do you know that

oranges offer more health benefits than Vitamin C pills ? Taking in synthetic supplements is not the same as consuming the foods directly from nature. Satisfy your palate with these nutritious fruits: Watermelon , Apricots , Avocado (yes , avocado is technically a fruit!) , Apple , Cantaloupe , Grapefruit , Kiwi , Guava, Papaya , Strawberries.

8 . Eat more vegetables . Like fruits, vegetables are important for good health . Experts suggest

5 – 9 servings of fruits/vegetables a day , but unfortunately most people don ’t even have 5 servings ! Some of my favorite vegetables include kidney beans , black beans , asparagus , long beans , french beans , sprouts , button mushrooms , and carrots. What are your favorite vegetables and how can you include more of them in your diet today ?

9 . Pick bright -colored foods . Fruits and vegetables with bright colors are usually high in anti- oxidants . Anti -oxidants are good for health because they remove free radicals in our body that damage our cells . So get your fill of fruits/ vegetables of different colors : White ( Bananas , Mushroom ) , Yellow ( Pineapples, Mango ), Orange ( Orange , Papaya ), Red (Apple , Strawberries, Tomatoes , Watermelon ) , Green ( Guava, Avocados , Cucumber , Lettuce , Celery ) , Purple /Blue ( Blackberries , Eggplant , Prunes) . Here’ s a full list under the color wheel .

10 . Cut down on processed food . Processed foods are not good because (1 ) most nutritional value is lost in the making of these foods and ( 2 ) the added preservatives are bad for our health . Many processed foods contain a high amount of salt content , which leads to higher blood pressure and heart disease . Processed foods are anything that is not in its raw form. In general , most food in supermarkets are processed — the more ingredients it has on the label (especially the ones ending with ‘ite ’ or ‘ate’) , the more processed they are. Watch out for those with salt /sugar in the first 5 ingredients and go for natural , whole food as much as possible .
