Since April 7 is World Health Day, here are three easy ways you can be healthier.
- Be active. Many jobs involve a lot of sitting. It’s good to move around. You can climb the stairs instead of taking the elevator, go for a walk on your lunch break, or go on a bike ride after work.
- Snack healthy. By packing bite-sized fruits and vegetables, you can keep yourself fueled all day. CHM member and nutritionist, Kristen Sherman, has several easy recipes to share (chministries.org/blog/filling-the-hungry-with-good-things)
- Unplug. Good sleep is important to be healthy. Experts have found that using your phone before bed makes it harder to fall asleep. The blue light restricts your melatonin, the hormone controlling your sleep-wake cycle. Instead of watching a movie or playing on your phone right before bed, try reading a book to wake up refreshed.
