Get sleep
Sleep is important and it doesn’t cost a thing.

Lack of sleep has been linked to higher stress levels, infertility and immune problems, blood sugar imbalances, mental problems, obesity, as well as many other less serious issues. If you’re having trouble sleeping, try cutting out alcohol or caffeine and other such stimulants, as this can help you to nod off and get a good night’s sleep.

Always eat breakfast
People often skip their breakfast and don’t consider it as an important meal. However, that’s not true....... your body needs good quality fuel to wake up your metabolism — hence always make it a point to eat a good breakfast! If you eat a hearty breakfast you will subsequently burn more calories throughout the day. Having a healthy breakfast will also prevent you from getting that lull in the morning when your body is running on empty.

Drink more water
Your body is ninety percent water and requires water for almost every function. Many of the pains and aches, headaches, and other symptoms we experience would lessen if we just drink maximum water in a day.

Take a brisk walk
No matter what type of job or daily activity are you into, the one thing that you should abide indispensable is your daily walk. Ideally, you should walk outdoors so that you get the benefits of fresh air and sun. Also if possible, make it a point of taking a walk in the morning so that you get the advantage to breathe the fresh air.

Reduce your salt intake
To reduce the impact of salt on your blood pressure, cut down on your salt intake. Rather than always adding salt, start using herbs and spices such as oregano, nutmeg and paprika to season your food. By following this practice, you may eventually find that you don’t need to add salt at all!

Minimize your fat intake
Everyone knows the effect of fat on our arteries and general health, so you should try to lessen your fat intake by altering your cooking methods. For example, try baking, grilling, steaming or poaching, rather than frying.

Intake a variety of fruits and vegetables
Vegetables and fruits are very important for your health. A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lessen the risk of stroke and heart disease, lower blood pressure, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, prevent some types of cancer, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar.

Eat oily fish
Fishes such as kippers, herring, salmon, mackerel, tuna and sardines will provide you with large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. These types of fatty acids can decrease the levels of cholesterol in the blood, thereby dropping the risk of stroke.

Limit alcohol
Excessive consumption of alcohol impairs the immune system and increases vulnerability to lung infections. The active ingredient in alcoholic beverages, a simple molecule called ethanol, affects the body in many different ways. It directly influences the brain, gallbladder, stomach, heart and liver. It affects the levels of lipids (triglycerides and cholesterol) and insulin in the blood, as well as inflammation and coagulation. Moreover, it also alters concentration, mood and coordination.

Exercise or mediate regularly
Enjoy warming and energizing exercises such as active yoga, walking, snowshoeing and hiking. These methods improve blood circulation and build strength. To achieve maximum benefit, meditate or exercise for 15 to 20 minutes, twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening.

Think positively
Apart from taking ayurvedic medicines and following the natural methods, having an optimistic outlook on life can actually help you to live longer. Researchers have found that optimistic people lowered their risk of early death by 50 per cent as compared to those who think negative. Thinking positively lessens your chances of worrying, and therefore reduces stress — thereby decreasing your chances of getting a physical and mental illness.
