There are few things that most of us in this world seek and value more than health and happiness. In an attempt to attain health, we go through diet after diet, workout routine after workout routine trying to figure out what works best for us -and in many cases will keep us interested long enough to attain results. To find happiness we look externally for things such as a great job, the perfect relationship or an active social life to create the exact balance that best works for us in feeling good consistently.

Rather than perpetually trying, why not learn by example? Even though we are all unique and no set thing works for all of us, here are 6 common things that healthy and happy people do every day. Or at least the ones that I’ve talked to.

1. Drink Plenty Of Water

Rather than getting into the statistics of how much water is enough, one common trait I’ve found amongst the healthy and happy is that they pretty well always choose water. Water is at the core of our health, so ensuring that we consume enough of it daily seems to make sense. Drinking a sufficient amount of water has been connected with helping to maintain a balance of bodily fluids, energizing muscles, keeping skin looking young and feeling good, maintaining your kidney health and ensuring normal bowel function.

Ever since I’ve become more “water conscious” I’ve found myself less prone to headaches and also more energized throughout the day. For those concerned with a lack of flavour, opt to squeeze some fresh citrus into your water rather than going for a concentrated juice or pop -which are likely to be loaded with unwanted sugars.

2. Spend Time Outdoors

We all lead busy lives, and to those of us who already find daily life to be a juggling act, the idea of incorporating some regular time outdoors may seem literally impossible. However, nothing is impossible and spending time outside is definitely something worth trying out. Being outdoors during the day connects you to the sun, the world’s greatest provider of the very powerful vitamin D -which helps to fight certain conditions from osteoporosis to cancer to depression.

Even when the sun isn’t shining, outdoor air is more often than not the cleanest air you can breathe. To help incorporate this into your life don’t be afraid to start small, a quick 5-minute walk or a few minutes of fresh air after a meal can do more than we might give them credit to.

3. Take Time Away From Technology

Technology is at the core of pretty well everything that most of us do, our computers, cell phones and televisions always seem to be playing some form of a role in every moment of our lives. In speaking to those who are the healthiest and happiest, I’ve found that most of them ensure that they spend a sufficient amount of time away from these devices daily.

Ideally this time away would be both substantial and uninterrupted, but given how dependent most of us have become even something much less significant would probably feel fantastic. Easy ways to incorporate this are opting to read rather than watch television, choosing to prepare or eat meals without some form of entertainment on, or if you have kids, playing with your children.
