Eat Healthy

EAT HEALTHY FOODS.

Eating right provides the body with various vital nutrients (proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates, fats, roughage, etc) needed by the body to function properly. It also helps you feel more energetic. A diet rich in nutrients consists of eggs, poultry, fish, whole grains, lean meats, low fat dairy foods (yogurt, fortified milk), unsaturated fats (olive oil, avocado). Processed foods typically consist of saturated fats and sugar and should thus, be avoided. They don't have much nutritive value and can leave you feeling tired as they cause the blood glucose levels to rise and drop very quickly.

Regular Exercise

REGULAR EXERCISE.

Regular exercise is as important for the body as is eating a nutrient-rich diet. It helps in maintaining a healthy weight, strengthens your bones and muscles, contributes to a better mood and overall mental health. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that moderately intense exercise is advisable and harmless for almost everyone. At least 150 minutes of workouts with moderate-intensity is important for everyone. If you have health issues, you must consult your doctor first.

Sleep enough

GET ENOUGH SLEEP.

To not only excel in daily life but also keep good health throughout your living years, getting adequate amount of sleep is very important. Repair of the heart and blood vessels occur only when you're asleep. Sleep helps in balancing the hormones of your body and also plays a vital role in the body's growth and development. The immune system of our bodies is greatly dependant on the amount of sleep we get, in order to function properly. It is important to provide the body with as much sleep as it requires at the right time. Seven to eight hours of sleep everyday is required.

Reduce Stress

REDUCE STRESS.

Stress management in our busy, hectic lives contribute to a healthy body. Although stress is inevitable, suffering from it is optional. When stress is excessive, and not treated, it can lead to health problems like high BP, inefficient immune system; mental problems like depression and anxiety and lack of concentration. Effective ways of managing stress and keeping the body healthy, are yoga, meditation, exercise and stress-reduction programmes.

Hydrate

DRINK WATER.

To not only keep the body healthy, but also to survive, keeping the water well-hydrated is very essential. Water is needed by each and every cell of the body in order to function properly. Water regulates body temperature, acts as carrier of the nutrients and waste materials of the body, keeps the blood pressure in check, and lubricates the joints and cushions the various organs of the body. The water lost by perspiration and respiration everyday must be replaced in order to avoid dehydration. A good thumb rule for estimating the amount of water needed by the body is to calculate in ounces, the half of your total body weight. For example, if you weigh 140 pounds, you need to drink 70 ounces of water.

  2. Quit alcohol consumption
  3. Avoid drug abuse
  4. Stop speeding
  5. Don't get into physical fights
  6. Never perform unsafe sex

little lifestyle changes

MAKE LITTLE LIFESTYLE CHANGES.

There isn't any point making big gestures to health and avoiding the minor, simple ones. Instead of exhausting yourself at the gym 3 days a week, help yourself more by walking the dog more often, taking the stairs instead of the elevator and the like. Instead of eating veggies and also snacking non-stop while sitting in front of the television or computer, a lot specific timings to each meal and avoid eating without thinking. Get your new trees of new habits to grow by nurturing them from the roots down.

  • Everything must be done in moderation. There must be a little of everything in your new lifestyle. Getting accustomed to anew lifestyle by bidding most of the things which played an important role earlier can not only make you feel suffocated but can also cause you to fall off the wagon. To satisfy your new choices, it is advisable to reward yourself when you accomplish a goal which you had set at the gym and so on. Understand your emotions. It is important to realize what you feel. When you are in contact with your emotions, you'll not only find yourself acting to situations more emotionally but also being able to empathize with others in a more mature fashion. Knowing yourself well contributes to better mental health. It is important to know when something saddens you, so you can scrap it out of your life right then. It is equally important to know what makes you happy. Surrounding yourself with people who make you feel optimized, is important in molding a happier, healthier life.
  • Go to a meditation center and learn how to focus on the positive.
  • Converse with a therapist who will help you deal with your emotions.
  • Get admitted in an emotional awareness programme which helps you to recognize, understand and most importantly accept your emotions.
  • It is important to learn to cope with emotional pain and also emotional abuse at times. Talk to a therapist or any trusted close one. If you bottle up your feelings it will only make your mental state more clustered and disturbed.
