Following a healthy lifestyle may seem like a bit of a task and it is. Leading a healthy life can start with changing the smallest of habits that you and I in today’s day may not even realise we indulge in. We’ve listed 8 small lifestyle changes you can make to be happy and healthy.
Start your day as early as you can
Start your day as early as possible and end it as early as possible. 7 AM is the best time to wake up, eat and go about your day. It’s energy-boosting, a motivational push to have a productive day and the most obvious—gives you more time to do more things.
Do not hit the snooze button
The temptation to squeeze in those extra 5 minutes of sleep that gradually turn into 10, 20 and 30 may feel heavenly for those few minutes but will leave you feeling drowsy. It’s what hitting snooze does. The best thing to avoid this is to wake up the very instance your alarm rings or your natural body time wakes you up at. This will also help you regulate your sleep.
Don’t check your phone the first thing when you wake up
You’d be lying if you said it’s not the first thing you do. We’re so madly addicted to checking those notifications the minute we get them, we often forget that time is slipping away. By not checking your phone first thing in the morning, you’re letting your own thoughts take over your mind, you’re thinking just about yourself and your day ahead and most importantly, saving time. The moment you spiral into scrolling through those endless number of stories and posts, you let the external world take over your mind before you’ve got the time to think about your own self.
Drink at least 2 glasses of water after waking up
Start with one glass if you’re new to this practice and then go to two. Try it. But throughout the day, don’t forget to drink 8 glasses of water.
Get that 7 AM – 9 AM sunlight
But most importantly, it’s your direct source of Vitamin D which strengthens your immune system and helps you get your nice and long beauty sleep.
Don’t skip your breakfast
Why wouldn’t you want to feed yourself first thing in the morning? If you don’t, it’s going to slow down your metabolism and that’s going to cause weight gain and weight gain will lead to a host of other problems, hair loss, headaches and more. So eat your first meal of the day without fail at the right time and eat well. Pro tip: include soaked dry fruits and fruits for more energy in the day and improved health in the long run.
Have your meals at appropriate hours
We dump most of the blame on our work for not eating healthy and on time but we really need to rethink our priorities. Not eating on time not only has its fair share of physical harms, but it also slows down your productivity rate, makes you foggy and cranky. It’s a no-go in any situation. I agree, for some of us, having a lunch leisurely is an unaffordable luxury but that’s really something to be fixed. Otherwise, it’s not going to benefit you in any way.
Never miss a workout
Not going to bore you with what you already know. If you work out on a daily, it is going to boost your mood, productivity and happy hormones like never before. More than making you healthy on a physical level, the mental effects of exercising is amazing.
