Apart from these two, other causes of deaths are different avoidable medical conditions.

Here is a list of 5 great ways to improve your health and wellness:

1. Carry out detailed research

The first and most important way is to start by carrying out a proper research on ways to improve your physical fitness and overall health. There are several tips flying all over the internet. The truth is that all of them cannot be suitable for you. Before you begin to filter the ideas down, it is important to discover as many ways as possible.

2. Involve your personal physician/healthcare provider

After picking up several ways to improve your health, it is important to narrow it down to the few that you think are suitable for you. However, it is not advisable to do it without the contribution of your physician and/or healthcare provider. You need to involve them as they have your health records, knows your strengths/weaknesses and should be the one to select the ones that suit you.

3. Engage in additional walks and avoid elevators when possible

If you really want to improve on your physical fitness, it is very important that you walk a little more. During the weekend, you can go for a long walk. But during the week, you may not have time for that, so you need to integrate it into your daily routine. You can decide to park your car in a parking lot that is a little far from your office. That way, you will be able to walk a good distance to work and back to your car.

To make it more arduous, you can shun elevators both at work and at home. That means that you will descend the stairs at home, you will climb it up at work, descend down at work and finally, climb up at home. It will go a long way in keeping you fit. You can do it at least twice in a week.

4. Work on your diet

You should cut down the intake of fatty foods. Instead, you need to eat more of fruits, vegetables and fibers. Too much fat in the body leads to obesity and obesity can cause several heart related diseases. Avoid foods that give you unnecessary calories and make you add weight.

5. A regular work out is important too

The most effective way to keep fit is engaging in regular workout sessions. It is important that you either go to the gym or work out at home. You should try to do a thirty minute workout twice a week at the minimum.
