Glowing skin and radiant energy are outward signs of a happy, healthy person. However, you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars on a personal trainer, and you can avoid those high dollar doctor’s visits. Anyone can achieve their best health with a few changes to their daily habits and routine care. Let’s talk about a few of these easy and low-cost tips.
Hydration Is the Key to Success
One of the easiest and cheapest things to do for your health, and one of the most overlooked, is just to simply drink water. University Health News lists a few of the many benefits, ranging from an increase in energy and endurance to disease prevention. A common rule of thumb is to drink at least eight glasses of water a day to stay properly hydrated. If you struggle to drink enough water or don’t actually like water very much, you can flavor your water with lemon slices, berries, or herbs like mint and basil. No matter how you take your water, the effects will be quickly apparent in your energy levels and skin.
Love the Skin You’re In
Speaking of skin, did you know that it your skin is an organ? Its job it to protect the important parts of you that hide beneath the surface. Healthy skin can prevent nasty germs from entering your bloodstream. Keep your skin healthy by keeping it clean and moisturized. Another benefit of prioritizing skin health is that you will look younger and feel better about your appearance, and that can give you a self-esteem boost!
No Gym Required
Exercise is important to keep your body healthy, energy levels high, skin glowing, and diseases at bay. Oftentimes, the word “exercise” conjures up an image of intense marathon-style cardio or maxing out reps with heavy weights. While those are great hobbies, that level of intensity is not required to maintain your health. You also don’t have to spend any money on a gym membership or fancy equipment — there are a lot of ways to exercise for little to no cost. You can go for a walk (or run) outside or create your own routine using exercises like jumping jacks, pushups, and sit-ups. You can also use a lightweight, portable streaming stick TV device to help you log into on-demand workouts or apps with different routines every day, and you can even take it with you when traveling so you never miss a session! Remember, regular exercise goes a long way to maintain your health and prevent future disease or illness.
In addition to diet and exercise, it is important to always schedule routine checkups with your primary care physician. Prevention and early detection are important tools, and your doctor can best help you monitor your health, especially if you are a senior. While these visits can run up a pretty high bill, you can offset this cost with the right insurance. Insurance plans change year to year, so be sure to examine your current coverage to ensure you are getting all the benefits you can. If you are a senior on Medicare, you may want to look into the Medicare Advantage plans to extend your coverage and include important aspects like vision and dental care.
Don’t Forget About Your Teeth
Dental care may not be the first thing you think of when you think of a health checklist. However, according to Harvard Medical School, oral health is directly linked to the health of your heart. Studies show that those who have poor oral health are more at risk for heart disease or stroke. Avoiding sugar, brushing your teeth twice daily, and flossing daily are all helpful habits to increase your dental hygiene. Just like it is important to see your doctor regularly, it is equally important to visit your dentist for routine cleanings and checkups. If your dentist is too expensive, look into other dental insurance options or change your dentist.
Taking The Small Steps
Taking small steps to learn healthy daily habits in addition to regular checkups are easy and cost-effective ways to stay healthy. When you are healthy on the inside, the outside reflects your health with glowing skin, radiant energy, and a happier version of you.

Day by day we are blessed with so many things in life but we tend to look at what we don’t have in life. We compare ourselves with other people and we feel threaten with the people surround us. We begin to look at all the negative things in life and forget to be grateful and thankful for the little things we have.
PLAY, RECONNECT WITH YOUR INNER CHILD
As an adult, we tend to be serious in everything we do and become less or zero sense of humour. Everything for us is work and competition. You don’t care about friendship anymore, you aim for business.. because for you business is everything and you don’t need friends, you need money.
As much as you want to be on top, don’t forget where you belong.. this is where you stand and play. Reconnect with your inner child, embrace and remember when you were a little kid. The happiness, joy and laughter, and many things that is FREE in life.
PLAY MUSIC, JOIN DRUM CIRCLE
Music is a great therapy and has powerful affect for the body, mind and soul.
…”Research has shown that music has a profound effect on your body and psyche. In fact, there’s a growing field of health care known as music therapy, which uses music to heal. Those who practice music therapy are finding a benefit in using music to help cancer patients, children with ADD, and others, and even hospitals are beginning to use music and music therapy to help with pain management, to help ward off depression, to promote movement, to calm patients, to ease muscle tension, and for many other benefits that music and music therapy can bring”.. sources from verywellmind
I recently joined ‘drum circle‘ and it was one of the best skills I enjoyed learning. Seriously I don’t know how to play any music instrument but the moment we were in the circle, everybody starts playing music. We were like an orchestra, the tune seems to synchronized even though not everyone can play music instruments. Everybody play by ear, listening to the beat and try to get into the melody.
If you know there will be a music circle in your area, just join in. You will never regret it. If nobody want to go with you, don’t bother.. you will meet new friends. Trust me its fun!
BE KIND, BE NICE
No matter how educated you are, what position you holding or how much money you have, please remember to be kind to others. Be nice, its not really hard to do. Your act of kindness will get blessing from those you treated nicely.
At the end of the day, the people you met will not remember what post you were holding or how much money you gave them, but they remember how you make them feel.
SMELL THE RIGHT SCENTS
Start your day with essential oil, by diffusing, inhale or apply it on certain part of your body. Honestly I never use perfume anymore since I use essential oils.
Essential oils has been around since the ancient time. It has been use for physical, emotional and spiritual wellness. There are so many different type of essential oils with each has different scent and uses.
Many users using essential oils, not only for diffusing, beauty, physical and emotional use but also using it as alternatives to harsh chemical product, creating a safe environment for the family.

We were given one life, enjoy it! Feel free to explore things or go place you wanted to go. No matter how healthy we are or how much money we own in the bank, God didn’t give us the exact date or time He will call us.
We need a day by day reminder and motivation to go through our daily life. Friends and family are the best people who can support us.
I hope your days fill with love, happiness and joy.
