8 Daily Tasks to Benefit Your Overall Health
Waking up is the first thing you do every morning. If it’s anything else, then you may have a problem. Once you’re up and out of bed, however, what do you do next? Do you shower, go for a run, have some breakfast, or get some work done? 

Sure, all of us have our daily routines, but what a lot of us don’t know that our daily routines aren't doing anything beneficial for our health. In some cases, and I hope that’s not any of us, our daily routines might actually be harming our health. In those cases, the first step to having a healthier lifestyle, of course, would be to stop doing those things.

For the majority of us, though, the secret to a healthier lifestyle lies within taking the time out of our day to dedicate to bettering our overall health. It can be a number of many things, but let’s take a look at 8 daily tasks you can do to benefit your overall health.

1. Morning Meditation
Feeling a little too groggy when you first wake up or when you finally get to work? That’s probably due to a lot of different factors, including a lack of sleep. One way to combat this is to meditate for a short period right when you wake up. Meditating each morning keeps you awake, enhances your awareness, and prevents stress and anxiety.

2. Go for a Morning Run
After that meditation, a great way to get your heart pumping and ready for the day is to go for a run. Nothing too strenuous, but once or twice around the block will give you a quick cardio workout, which is great for heart benefits and lowering cholesterol.

3. Take Vitamins
While a lot of important vitamins can be found in our daily diet, let’s be honest here. If you’re busy and working all of the time, chances are that you don’t have too much time to cook a nice healthy meal, or don’t have the finances to afford someone making it for you. A great habit to get into is taking vitamins in the morning to replace what you aren’t getting in the day.

4. Sitting Up Straight
Posture is a thing that is often ignored in the office. Leaning back on the phone, hunched over on the computer, or straining our backs working on crude oil tank cleaning equipment can often produce dire consequences for our posture or back. Sit up straight and try to keep your posture in mind throughout the day to prevent long-term health problems.

5. Eat a Super Healthy Lunch
It may be tempting to use that hour lunch break of yours to go down to the local burger joint and chow down, but it’s important to resist that urge. You’re going to be fighting the afternoon crash in a little while, so you need a nice and healthy meal to not only sustain your long term health, but to keep your energy going till
you get off of work. Try a lunch with a lot of fruit and veggies, foods that have natural energy packed into them that’ll help you through the day.

6. Having a Regular Workout Routine
What a lot of people don’t realize is that you don’t have to go crazy at the gym. You’re not going to impress anyone there, and that’s not the most beneficial way to work out. What you should be doing is sticking to a regularly scheduled workout routine that targets certain muscles on certain days, and that combines over
the week to be a full body workout. This is easiest done with a trainer, but is possible with smartphone applications.

7. A Well Balanced Dinner
You stuck to healthy foods at lunch, and now’s the time to splurge a little bit. One thing to keep in mind is to have a well balanced dinner, though. Sure, you can have that steak - just remember to balance it out with some asparagus or brussel sprouts. Make sure to serve smaller portions than you think you’ll eat. A lot of time, you eat with your eyes and not your stomach.

8. Get a Good Night’s Rest
Remember talking about how you were extra tired in the morning? This can probably explain it. Adults are recommended to get a dull 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Staying up past midnight to watch TV isn’t helping you if you have to wake up early for work or school. Go to sleep earlier, wake up fresher! Follow this daily routine, and you’re bound to live a healthier lifestyle in the end.
