 10 rules for a healthy lifestyle that no longer apply today

The basic principles of a healthy lifestyle seem to be imprinted in our memory and become accepted truths. When the scale reads a higher number than you are used to, all these truths come to mind. You think they might help you get back into shape: jog in the morning, always eat your meals at the same time, avoid sweets, drink lots of water. But do all these rules really work?

Bright Side has compiled 10 rules for healthy living that you should have changed a long time ago.

10. Get eight hours of sleep




Research from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine has found that humans need 7 hours of sleep in order for their bodies to work efficiently and feel full of energy during the day. Your body needs this time to recharge and recover during the night.

9. eat a rich breakfast

The richness and quantity of breakfast should always be based on the individual needs of the body. Eating only makes sense when you really feel like it. So if you find it difficult to eat in the morning, don't torture yourself, drink a glass of water instead.


8. jogging in the morning

Jogging is useful both in the morning and in the evening. So if you don't have time or desire to go jogging in the early morning, don't do it. Also, you should let your body wake up properly before you go jogging in the morning. It is best to have breakfast and wait at least 40 minutes before exercising. Otherwise, you run the risk of fainting, getting a headache or developing an irregular heartbeat.

7. Avoid sweets

Eating sweets is actually good for the human body because they contain glucose, which is a key element for good brain function. For this reason, you should not completely eliminate sweets from your diet. However, you can try to minimize the amount of sugar you eat. For example, eat plain yogurt, drink sugar-free hot drinks, or eat dried fruit instead of sweets.

6. Exercise to exhaustion

If your body doesn't ache the next morning, it means you "didn't work out right." Sore muscles after a workout occur when the effort was too much for your body. Sore muscles can also be a sign of muscle tissue injury. In this case, it is best to stop exercising until you have fully recovered.

5. Do not drink water with meals

Water is an important element for the proper functioning of the digestive system. If the body does not get enough liquid, the stomach absorbs it through saliva. Drinking is therefore good and necessary for your body. It helps your stomach digest and absorb food more easily.

4.Always eat your meals at the same time

One of the cornerstones of good health is not to eat too much and the most important thing to eat when your body needs energy. The body is something extraordinary. When it needs food, the stomach secretes enzymes specific to hunger.. When it comes to quantity of meals, it is best to divide your daily food intake into 5 or 6 separate meals.



3. Brush your teeth after each meal


During the day, we consume a lot of acidic foods: lemon tea, pickles, salad dressings, etc. The residue from these acidic foods can attack our teeth. The residues of these acidic foods can attack the enamel of our teeth. The residue of these acidic foods can attack our tooth enamel. Brushing your teeth right after eating can make the damage even worse. In addition, frequent brushing can cause gum pain and bleeding. Don't follow every new rule you hear, but brush your teeth morning and night like you always have.

2. give up bakery products

Bread contains many important fibers that remove cholesterol and bile acid from your body. Bread also helps keep your digestive system working well. Of course, this doesn't mean you have to stuff yourself with bread; 200 grams a day should be enough.

1. Drink 2 liters of water per day

The amount of water you drink during the day should correspond to your weight: 30 ml/kg. Also pay attention to the following factors: Weather conditions, humidity and water loss during exercise. To maintain your body's water balance, you can also drink tea, coffee, juice and other liquids.
