We have like millions habits and yet we don’t really pay attention whether they are beneficial, harmful, or fun…or whatever they are. Most of the times however harmful habits have the greatest share. On the other hand, there are dozens of seemingly basic and simple habits, which can have amazingly positive effects on your health. Without being noticed. That being said, here is our next top 10 list of the healthiest habits you can take to drastically improve your overall health!
Note 1: by health we don’t only mean physical health, but mental status as well. So basically your overall well-being.
Note 2: yeah, we didn’t include in this list items like ‘Drink less alcohol’ or ‘Quit smoking’. The reason is: everybody knows that you can get healthier by stopping these habits. We focused more on those habits, which are less-known as great health-contributors.
Check out our previous top 10 article here!
Your back will be very greatful, and will ache less. Not to mention that it boosts your confidence, making you more powerful and energetic.
Spend some time with games and activities which are purely FUN – with the sole purpose of entertaining yourself. Don’t even bother with any of your tasks for that short time. If it’s a brainteaser, it’s even better – you’re having fun and improve your brain. Notable examples: crosswords, sudoku, chess, minesweeper etc.

We’ve already mentioned the health benefits in our previous top 10 article of taking the stairs. One stair usually accounts for 0.5 burned calories. Many a little makes a mickle! 🙂
Actually this is the best part of using public transportation (aside from reading a book in the meantime – just my 2 cents). You force yourself walking a lot from point A to point B. Even taking a short walk during a day can have a massive impact on your health in the long run.
Ahh, just breathe in! This is walking 2.0, doing it on an uneven terrain. Getting rid of stress, burning some calories and enjoying calmness. And your health will love you for it!
Quite drastic, but undoubtedly beneficial for your mental health. Less stress, less time-wasters and increased productivity. Of course, if it’s needed leave your chat-related apps on your phone, but delete the rest.
In my opinion it’s the No.1 stress factor you should really get rid of ASAP. Procrastination is like coming up with excuses for yourself not doing something, which in reality are serious bullsh*t.
And yes, I say it as a notorious procrastinator.
Get rid of it, and your stress level will significantly decrease. Paralelly, it’ll boost your working morale.
The second item, in which I’m like a “champion”. I can never go to sleep in time. Just simply never (*pat on the back*). Sleep at least 8 hours and you’ll notice awesome improvements in being energetic, creative and productivity! As for the quality of sleep, you can improve it with some simple tricks, like:
No explanation needed. There are hundreds of studies of the health benefits of sex. It helps on both mental and physical fields. Just a few notable benefits: less stress, better immune system, a lot of burnt calories etc.
Here are some items before the number 1, which are notable, but couldn’t make it to our top 10 picks:
Many people just ignore the need for drinking enough (or even excessive) water during an average day. It’s the no 1. most important material for your body, so it’s crucial, I repeat crucial to drink enough day-by-day. According to a Mayo Clinic article, men should drink at least net 3.7 litres, women should drink at least net 2.7 litres a day. Of course, it varies from season to season and other factors.
And by the way: SKIP SODA!
