This is another headline telling the same story – we all want to stay healthy, so we keep reading about life hacks and tricks to preserve our physical and mental health on a reasonable level. Yet, some are pretty simple and don't require effort, though – check out our top ten list of basic rules that will keep your body and soul healthy!

10. When There's a Problem, Don't Ignore It

Health issues usually won't go away – they'll become worse

Let's face it – everyone ignored a symptom of illness at least once in life. However, that's not the way we should treat our bodies. If your body is trying to tell you something, you should listen to the signals it's sending. Maybe it can't speak directly, but symptoms are a thing to consider. Sometimes they don't mean anything, but you never know!

Moreover, many people are obsessed with treating only one body part that already has issues. They forget that it's not the only thing that makes you (un)healthy. Keep a close watch on everything since your body is a system, and everything works together. Of course, nothing will heal on its own, so if there's a problem, go and solve it!

9. Try to Work Out and Make It a Daily Routine

Learn her tricks before you begin!

A healthy body is a fit body, and you'll be satisfied with your figure when you start exercising! Working out motivates you, and if you get "addicted" to it, you'll easily maintain a routine, bringing you both physical and mental health. 

Moreover, burning calories keeps you safe from several diseases, which affect many aspects of your health. People don't do it only to look fit, but to stay healthy – these two go together, as we already mentioned. And regarding mental health, your mind will be at peace after an active day, and routines like this are good for our brain!

8. Remember That You Are What You Eat

What you eat has a substantial impact on your brain

Is this phrase accurate? Absolutely – we can all agree on the topic that what you eat changes your life! Eating junk food affects your body and mind. Therefore, we're sure you had that experience when you felt terrible after a hamburger. Consuming unhealthy food ruins your physical and mental health simultaneously.

Hence, to avoid all those side effects and health issues that junk food brings, try to maintain a healthy diet. Eating healthy is a base of a fit body even more than exercising, so you don't need to work out excessively if you already eat well. Of course, maintaining both habits will make you even healthier and happier!

7. …But Don't Be Too Restrictive

She went all-in on that day!

You'll have to wait for some time until you get used to a healthy diet, and the results should also come when some time passes. However, you don't have to be hard on yourself when you want something unhealthy. That would create a mess for your mental health, and a desperate mind in a healthy body isn't the goal you want to achieve!

Hence, learn to draw a line somewhere, but don't ditch the things you love to eat forever. You should know how to consume healthy stuff more than junk food, but treat yourself with chocolate when you achieve something and celebrate. Cheat days are also legitimate, as long as you know how to keep up with your diet!

6. Try to Avoid Burnouts

Take your time and relax because if you're feeling like this, nothing else can help!

Being overworked, overwhelmed, and exhausted isn't a joke, and the amount of stress that someone feels when they are burnt out is not normal. It affects your health significantly, and you should do everything possible to avoid this state of body and mind. This syndrome happens so often now that we're all working too much.

Hence, we completely understand that you have your assignments, but try to do the things you love in the meantime. Taking a break is crucial; if you become burnt out, you won't do your chores efficiently. It's like walking in circles where you're constantly tired, which would ruin your health and immune system long-term.

5. Sleep

Better sleep, better life!

Did we mention burnout? Are you so exhausted that your brain performance gets poor? Sleep is the best relaxation you can get in this world, and nothing can replace it. It's an essential human need, and your health will already be on a good level if you eat well and sleep well!

Hence, try to sleep even when you have an exam the next day because your brain will be stronger if you slept for a few hours the night before. We know every minute of studying and working matters, but your hours of sleep daily matter even more. Next time you think it's better to stay up… Think twice!

4. Take a Walk Every Day

This thumbnail says more than words!

When we promised the habits we'll recommend would be easy, we meant this one – nothing's more accessible than taking a walk every day! This small thing can radically change your life since you'll have more time to think about things, take a breath of fresh air in the meantime, and be at peace with yourself and your surroundings! Furthermore, you don't have to push yourself with challenging hikes.

Luckily, walking works well for your physical health since you'll be fit and your blood pressure will be better. Even only 30 minutes of walking daily will improve your mood, sleep, and creativity, reducing the risk of chronic diseases. Your immune system will be grateful for those long walks!

3. Spend Some Time with Friends and Family

Friends go hand in hand with healthy habits!

After a long day full of work and stress, all you need is a hug that will lift your mood instantly. Yes, hanging out with people has much to do with health, especially with those you love the most! Human beings aren't used to being alone, and we need someone to give us positive energy, which will boost our health instantly!

Moreover, you should meet your beloved friends or call them even when feeling bad. You know those devastating days in life when everything seems wrong, your friend comes to lift the mood, and things suddenly seem smooth. Surround yourself with pure happiness and positivity to maintain a better health state!

2. …And Spend a Part of the Day Alone

"Me time" reduces stress and makes you more aware of things

Whether it's your daily walk or an hour where you drink your morning coffee or listen to your favorite records, your "me time" is a holy treatment. It boosts your overall health in a way you'd never imagine. Spending time with others is also crucial to function well, but escape to your own world after the buzz and find a remedy for anything!

The truth is, no one can understand you how you understand yourself. Hug yourself, tell yourself you'll make it, and when you make it, treat yourself like royalty! We all have some routines that require only a "me, myself, and I" vibe, and those are there to boost our mental and physical health!

1. Don't Be Too Hard on Yourself!

You deserve better than this!

If you messed up, don't worry because we've all been there. Don't be too quick to form a wrong opinion about anyone and yourself. Humans make mistakes by nature, and you'll get rid of stress when you realize you shouldn't be hard on yourself whenever you do something wrong. Reducing stress is already something remarkable for health!

Are you always that person that sees only the unaccomplished? Think again because we're sure you already did so many things you should be proud of. Confidence and feeling good about yourself make your mind healthy, and the happiness that comes along does your hormones well. You'll do anything you wish. Just take your time!

When you feel like everything we mentioned in our top ten is "dull" or "unnecessary," just remember that health is all you have. You might be rich, famous, beloved, or anything else, but if you lose your mental or physical health, you've lost it all at once. Hence, try to do at least some of those things, and life will bring you happiness and peace in return!
