  1. 1. Luke Lonergan 8 Best Things You Can Do for Your Body
  2. 2. Luke Lonergan 1. Meditation Meditationmayseemlikea passingtrend, butthe newly-popular practice touts some serious health benefits. Om-ing is optional, but regularly taking 10-20 minutes to unwind and focus on yourself is one of the greatest secrets to longevity. “Meditation is going to help with stress reduction, better sleep, lower blood pressure, improved immunity, and improved cardiovascular function,"says Kerry Bajaj,a certified healthcoach at the Eleven WellnessCenterin New York City.It’s alsogoing to make you feel much better because you’re disconnecting from all the stimulation of life.”
  3. 3. Luke Lonergan 2. Sleep It’s no secret that most hard-working guys are sleep deprived, butjust because it’scommondoes notmean it’sOK. Sleepmakes or breaks a healthy lifestyle. All that time and effort you spend eating right and working out won’t be as effective—and your physique will actually be harder to maintain—if you’re not getting seven to eight hours a night. Catchingup on sleep on the weekends won’t work either. Research from Rochester University suggests that insufficient sleep disrupts our brains' ability to flush toxins from the body and as a result, can impairbrain function. So, when you show up for work after a bad night's sleep and you're unable to focus on anything—that’s why.
  4. 4. Luke Lonergan 3. Drink Tea Drink more tea. Just do it. Aside from water, tea might be the best beverage for your body. Research published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that regular consumptionof green tea can improve memory and cognitionin men. Green tea is also credited with a host of other health- boostingbenefits, like firing up your metabolism, loweringblood pressure, preventing bad breath, boosting immunity, and acting as an anti-inflammatory agent.
  5. 5. Luke Lonergan 4. Floss Flossing won’t just make your pearly whites brighter, the habit will improve your health on a much deeper level. “If your gums get infected, the bacteria in your mouth can enter the bloodstream and lead to inflammation throughout the body," says Doctors.
  6. 6. Luke Lonergan 5. Take Probiotics Check in with yourgut—a healthydigestive system is often seen as the windowto youroverallhealth.One way to boost good gut bacteria and keep things running smoothly: take a daily probiotic supplement. “Probiotics help with digestion, and they’re good for your immunity," says Doctors. "Fixing the balanceofgood bacteriainthe gut caneven improveyourmood. A lot of our serotonin is actually produced in the gut, so there’s a big connection between what’s happeningin the gut and how we feel.”
  7. 7. Luke Lonergan 6. Warm up before Workouts Static stretching before a workout doesn’t do your body much good. In fact, research from Stephen F. Austin State University found that exercisers who did static stretching before lifting had impairedstrength compared to those who performed a dynamic warm-up, a muscle-warming routine that includes moves like walking lunges and high skips. Get in the habit of performing a dynamic warmup before any kind of workout and you'll not only enhance your performance, but also help prevent injury.
  8. 8. Luke Lonergan 7. Avoid BPA BPA stands for Bisphenol A, a chemical used to produce many common household products, like water bottles and food cans. In recent years, the compound's effects on health and human development have generated quite a bit of controversy, and for good reason. Research hasfoundlinksbetween exposure to BPA and reproductive disorders, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. While the FDA reports evidence on both sides of the debate, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Purchase typically- canned items, like tomatoes, in glass containers instead, and if you’re sticking with plastic containers, check for a recycle code of 3 or 7 on the bottom—those may be made with BPA.
  9. 9. Luke Lonergan 8. Clean up your Skincare Regimen Your skin is your largest organ, so you’ve got to take care of it like you would any other part of your body. That means applying sunscreen daily and being picky about the products you use. “Look at your hair and skincare products, and clean up those products so you’re not putting chemicals on your skin," advises Bajaj. Check labels for Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate, and toss products that contain these compounds. Sulfates not only strip your hair and skin of necessary moisture and protective barriers, but they also become toxic when combined with other ingredients commonly found in skincare products.
