Our body is truly amazing. It can repair damage we do to it if we stop inflicting that damage. One fact I love is that make a new skeleton every three months and a new layer of skin every month.

However, this does not mean we should not take care of the body we have. We only get one body so we should take care of it.

Here are some of the best ways we can take care of it.

Staying Fully Hydrated

  • According to the Mayo Clinic The average healthy adult needs:
  • About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day for men
  • About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day for women
  • These recommendations cover fluids from water, other beverages and food. About 20% of daily fluid intake usually comes from food and the rest from drinks.

Physical Activity

  • The American Heart Association recommends the following for adults
  • Get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic activity, or a combination of both, preferably spread throughout the week.
  • Add moderate- to high-intensity muscle-strengthening activity (such as resistance or weights) on at least 2 days per week.
  • Spend less time sitting. Even light-intensity activity can offset some of the risks of being sedentary.
  • Gain even more benefits by being active at least 300 minutes (5 hours) per week.
  • Increase amount and intensity gradually over time.

Healthy Diet

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends a healthy diet includes the following:

  • Fruit, vegetables, legumes (e.g. lentils and beans), nuts and whole grains.
  • At least five portions of fruit and vegetables per day, excluding potatoes, sweet potatoes, cassava and other starchy roots.
  • Less than 10% of total energy intake from free sugars, which is equivalent to about 12 level teaspoons for a person of healthy body weight consuming about 2000 calories per day, but ideally is less than 5% of total energy intake for additional health benefits
  • Less than 30% of total energy intake from fats. Unsaturated fats are preferable to saturated fats and trans-fats of all kinds, including both industrially-produced trans-fats
  • Salt – Less than equivalent to about one teaspoon per day and should be iodized.

Even with careful meal planning it can be hard to get all the vitamins and minerals needed to remain healthy.
