Every year on April 7th, people around the world take note of World Health Day. Created at the First Health Assembly in 1948, World Health Day took effect in 1950 and, ever since, has aimed to create awareness of a specific health concern for the World Health Organization. While the themes vary by year, one overarching thing remains constant: the need for everyone, the world over, to help make the world a healthier place. That initiative starts with you, so in the spirit of better health for all, here are 3 quick health tips to put into practice this April.
Start a Supplement Routine
Many people don’t consume enough vitamins and other nutrients simply because they do not eat food rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals. Get a full serving of exactly what you need when you take a multivitamin and any other supplements you are interested in. (Just be sure to get a doctor’s approval if you are taking other medications or have a medical condition.)
Find Healthier Ways to Socialize
Meeting up at a bar or a restaurant is a common way for friends to get together. To make socialization healthier and easier on your wallet, try taking a walk, engaging in a game of volleyball, or visiting a coffee shop and ordering tea or a latte instead of a calorie-rich meal. You might even find that, without the distraction of booze or the buzz of a restaurant, you can enjoy each other’s company more!
Make Water and Tea Your Default Drink
Do you have a “default drink”? You know, the one you depend on to get you through errands, work tasks, or both? If you’re always cracking open a can of Diet Coke or frequent the coffee bar throughout the day, consider mixing things up and making water or tea your go-to beverages. Water is great for hydrating your body, and tea can provide healthy antioxidants with generally less caffeine than coffee.
