5 Ways to Get Healthy, and Stay There


| 10/21/2014 3:47:00 PM


Adopting a healthy lifestyle doesn't happen overnight. You might eat a handful of veggies one week and exercise the next, but you're not setting yourself up for long-term success. Start with these basic tips, and use them as a foundation for your healthy lifestyle. Most of them seem small, but they add up to reveal significant results. 

Getting In Better Shape 

Don't Downplay the Negative Effects of Soda

People with a "Diet Coke addiction" often justify the craving by saying that it’s healthier than regular Coke or that it has fewer calories. While this is true, it's still not a healthful option. Challenge yourself to cut back on your soda or diet soda intake, and replace it with water. There are multiple resources out there to calculate how much sugar and caffeine are in different drinks, so check before you sip.

On top of calories, soda causes tooth decay, dehydration and sleep problems. If you're tired of articles telling you to stop drinking soda because of the sugar, then do it for your teeth or sleep. 

Speaking of Teeth, Go to the Dentist

Are you nervous about going to the dentist in case he or she finds a cavity? What about multiple cavities? You might not be that nervous if you regularly get six-month check-ups. Your dentist will tell you what you're doing wrong, from not flossing to brushing too hard. It's better to go and have a dentist catch something early than have to endure a root canal.



Along with the dentist, don't shy away from your regular check-ups either. If your doctor knows you, he or she can spot any bodily changes that could be a sign of something worse. He or she will also be able to offer advice about diet and exercise.
