"World Health Day is an amazing way to bring awareness to public health issues that affect people in all corners of the earth. I believe that bringing awareness through education is the first step in fixing the serious health issues problems that our world faces," says Dr. Brian Dixon, executive director of health and science education at USANA. "Taking a widespread approach to your health — from supplementation, to diet and exercise, to meditation and sleep — can make a huge difference in how people feel every day both mentally and physically."

Here are some tips from Dr. Dixon on simple things you can do to improve your overall health and wellness:

  • Drink water. The most fundamental element to life is water and drinking upwards of two liters a day can improve your immune system, mood and energy.
  • Take time for yourself. Having some quality "me" time every day where you don't think about any of the negative energy in your life and be mindful on the positive can improve your mood and outlook on life.
  • Embrace nature. Spending time in the sun, soaking up the beneficial vitamin D it provides and breathing the fresh air can clear your mind and boost your disposition.
  • Invest in vitamins and supplements. We don't always get all the nutrients we need from diet alone, and taking your vitamins to fill in the gaps will provide your body extra support to keep you healthy of both body and mind.
