6. Eat two servings of vegetables a day

Vegetables are often ignored at mealtimes in favor of carbohydrates or starches. They should be relegated to a place of honor at mealtimes due to their high nutrient content and health benefits. Vegetables contain many essential nutrients such as fiber, folate (folic acid), vitamins A, E, C, as well as potassium and magnesium.

Fiber promotes bowel regularity and lowers blood cholesterol, which improves heart health. Folic acid is essential for the production of red blood cells and the healthy growth of the spine during fetal development.

7. Write down two things you are grateful for every day.

It is said that gratitude is the most important element to practice daily to achieve happiness. It reframes your thinking to encompass positive reality and allows you to see hidden opportunities. It makes you feel better about yourself, your life circumstances and it attracts other positive people like a magnet.

An attitude of gratitude inspires not only yourself but also others, who are learning from your example. It is a way to rise above the circumstances of your current life and live your life to the fullest in the moment.

8. Wash your hands

Hand washing is a simple and effective way to prevent the spread of germs. You should wash your hands before handling or eating food, after cleaning the toilet, handling animals, or treating injuries of any kind. Contaminated hands may appear clean to the naked eye.

A multitude of germs, bacteria and microscopic viruses can indeed be present after a few seconds of contact with a contaminated surface. Gastrointestinal infections, influenza and hepatitis A are some of the illnesses that can be passed from person to person through contaminated hands. Regular hand washing can play a major role in your health and the health of others.
