Have a good sleep – Sleep is an unavoidable interval in the 24-hour day, says Merril M Mitler, PH.D, of La Jolla, California. Sleep is a very essential part of our day, not only in comforting ways but also in terms of health. Our body needs 7-8 hours sleep daily in order to function properly but due to our workload and many other reasons. We are not able to have such amount of sleep. A healthy sleep has many benefits such as:
a. It energizes you and makes you more active.
b. It will help you to decrease tension and make you happier.
c. It repairs the body
d. Reduces the risk of heat stroke
e. It relaxes the mind
f. Sleep has never ending advantages and you should not neglect it at any cost. So if you are not getting a good amount of sleep and feel that your health is going down, you need to change your routine and make healthy sleep a #1 priority.
- Keep yourself hydrated – Drinking plenty of water in a day will bring positive changes towards your health. Drink at least 7-10 glasses of water in a day. You will feel a big difference in your health. You will find your energy levels raised and it will boost you mentally.
It also aids in losing weight as it makes you feel full and suppresses appetite. Do you find yourself with an aching head very often? It can also be due to dehydration. So if you are on the side of people who drink less water, switch sides immediately !
Eat slowly – Yes , you read that right. We do not realize but we end up eating more when we eat which leads to weight gain. Eating fast also does improper digestion and makes you feel hungry very fast. Eating slowly is one of the most simplest yet the most powerful things you can do to improve your health.
Take stairs – Who would want to take stairs when the lift is present right at the side? Humans always put comfort over hard work. We have produced so many gadgets based on our comfort and without even knowing, we are harming ourselves. Take my word and make stairs your best friend. <br>According to step jockey.com
a. Climbing just 8 flights of stairs a day lowers our average early mortality rate by 33%.
b. It reduces the half risk of heart attack over 10 years.
c. It reduces weight.
Meditate – You have no idea how much meditation can change your life in the most positive way. We are so consumed in our daily schedule that we fail to connect with our true selves. Start doing meditation after waking up and before going to sleep, even if it is for 5 minutes. You will feel relaxed, calm and it will change your life.
Start your day early and practice positive affirmations – We all want to end the chatter in our mind and be calmer, more confident or anything you want to be. Starting your day positively is the best thing you can do for yourself.
Exercise – When it comes to health, who would forget exercise? Exercise is the best thing you can gift yourself. No matter if it is for weight loss, for being fit or any personal reasons. Make exercise on your priority list.
