Some tips for enjoying a healthy life and healthy body and mind:

The Danish concept ‘‘hygge’’, which means enjoying the smalls things, has become a trend lately.

|  Engage in regular physical activity: Find a type of exercise that you like and get moving: surfing, walking, running… Bear in mind that WHO recommends engaging in a minimum of 150 minutes of physical activity a week.

|  Respect sleeping time, get some rest: The recommended amount of sleeping hours is 8 hours a day; however, each person is different and the amount of sleeping hours needed may vary from one person to the other. Do not forget to maintain balance among work, leisure and rest.

| Eat healthy foods: We all know the foods we can live without, such as the sugar in cookies, prepared juices,… if you crave something sweet, just get a fruit. Eat fruits and vegetables on a daily basis, and healthy fats frequently: olive oil, nuts, salmon.

| Stay hydrated: drink two or three liters of water a day and avoid sugary drinks.

| Lie in the sun responsibly: Vitamin D is beneficial for the body; it reduces the risk of different cancers, heart conditions, multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis. It also improves the immune system. But don’t forget to apply sunblock!

| Avoid bad habits: alcohol, tobacco, caffeine …

| Be considerate of others and yourself: being good with oneself is not judging and punishing ourselves for the mistakes we have made. The important thing is feeling good with oneself.

| Enjoy your own space: try to relax at home, read, watch a movie, chat, cook, learn… focus on some you time.

| Invest in quality time with family: Spend time with the people that you love and leave the obligations aside; it’s the best way to achieve wellness. You won’t find happiness in the latest car model, but you will find it by sharing your time with family and friends.

| And the most important thing is SMILE! Laughing makes us happy, it changes our attitude. Whenever possible, take the good from every small thing and you’ll be happier!
