5-Minute Tips for Better Health

5-Minute Tips for Better Health

If you have only 5 extra minutes in your  day, try these simple tips to look and feel better. I’ve tried them all, and  they really work!

  • Enjoy a cup of coffee. Research studies show that caffeine keeps heart  rhythm steady, and strengthens your ticker.
  • Pamper your neglected joints. Mix some lemon juice with a little pure cream  and sugar. Rub this gently all over your elbows and knees. The Vitamin C in  lemon lightens skin, the cream moisturizes it, and the sugar exfoliates.
  • Spend five extra minutes on chewing your food—aim for 20 seconds per bite.  The Red Cross warns in its booklet on cardiopulmonary resuscitation that bolting  food is a common cause of windpipe obstruction and clogged coronaries. Taking  small, slow bites kickstarts your digestive juices even before the food reaches  your stomach. Besides, it makes you mindful of what you are eating, so you tend  to eat less, and feel less stressed.
  • Sip a tall glass of warm water, slowly. It is an excellent way to get the  toxins on their way out of your body.
  • Practice real breathing. When you inhale, try to breathe into your  diaphragm. This will give more oxygen to your brain and lungs and lend a glow to  your skin. Do it for just 10 minutes twice a day, and you will feel the  difference.
  • Trim your toenails. Besides making you feel cleaner, spending time with your  body will also boost self-image
