Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/03/2014 -- It’s often the little things that can make large differences in overall health. Things like taking the stairs at work, or doing an extra load of laundry and straightening up the house can have huge benefits for overall wellbeing.
Experts have long recommended ways to increase consumption of healthy fats and oils, and one little way to do this is to consume a handful of nuts each day. Walnuts, almonds, and other nuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids which are good for heart health and an overall feeling of well-being. A research from Harvard found that those who consumed nuts on a daily basis were 20 percent less likely to die from any cause during the study than those who didn’t.
With increasing consumption of nuts, decreasing consumption of red meat is another little change individuals can make to improve their health. A study found that women and men who were healthy at the beginning of a study became more likely to develop cancer or heart disease if they consumed red meat on a daily basis. To ensure a diet rich in protein, explore other meat options such as fish, chicken, and low-fat dairy products.
Stress can wreak havoc on mental well-being, and overtime can manifest itself in physical ways. To combat this, it’s important to find little ways to reduce stress throughout the day. Taking a walk, eating a healthy snack, or learning how to breathe deeply can all aid in reducing stress. It’s been shown that those who meditate on a daily basis have higher levels of telomerase, an enzyme responsible for slowing the effects of aging. With more telomerase, bodies can adapt to physiological changes easier and can actually increase their lifespans.
Little steps make big changes over time, and the sooner we start changing the longer we’ll feel the effects of new, beneficial habits.
