10 healthy habits to change your lifestyle and improve your health

“Improving your health depends largely on acquiring a lifestyle that allows you to create adherence to healthy habits.”

We all know that eating fruits and vegetables produces benefits on our health, but this habit must always be linked to a lifestyle that goes beyond these foods; such as physical exercise or less consumption of alcohol and ultra-processed products (the less, the better, knowing that 0 is the best option).

Therefore, I encourage you from this moment to start considering the advice that I propose as an improvement in your lifestyle.

Healthy habits in your diet and physical activity:

Don’t “diet” yourself as if it were punishment. Be persistent with your diet and create adherence to it in the medium term; you will obtain the desired result in a natural and healthy way. Keep in mind that the results or consequences are not seen immediately, but they begin in our body from the first day.
