Everything in life has parameters that you need to abide by if you want the most favorable outcome. For instance, when you’re driving, you need to stay between the lines and obey the traffic signs if you expect it to make it from point A to point B in the best condition possible.

Well, the same is true when it comes to your health. There are certain parameters, or rules, that you want to follow so that you can enjoy a life full of happiness, energy, and wellness. What are these rules? Although there are many, here are the four most essential:

Rule #1: Eat a Lot of Fruits and Vegetables

Your body requires a number of vitamins and minerals in order to function effectively, most of which are packed in the fruits and veggies that you eat. Therefore, you want to include these two food groups in your diet often, consuming the recommended nine servings per day.

Rule #2: Drink Enough Water

Every system in your body requires water, from your circulatory system responsible for the blood that flows through your arteries and veins to your digestive system that is tasked with removing toxins and wastes. This makes drinking at least 8-10 glasses per day essential if you want to enjoy complete and total health.

Rule #3: Get Your Recommended Amount of Nutrients

The best way to ensure that you get the right amount of nutrients for your body’s health often requires that you take supplements. These will enhance your intake and absorption of the substances you need to stay active, energetic, and free from disease.

Rule #4: Create a Menu Before You Shop

Ever find yourself at the supermarket, putting items in your cart that aren’t the least bit healthy for you simply because you have no idea what meals you’ll make that week? This situation can be easily avoided when you create your healthy menu for the week prior to heading to the store.

Follow these four rules and you’ll be on your way to stellar health.
