These days we all are keeping busy with laptops, phones, etc as these all are becoming are best friends in our new normal lifestyle. Recently met one of my friends who want to make some healthy lifestyle changes in her life like these days she is feeling very stressed, tired by the overburden of work and eating junk all day and she is very keen to change her lifestyle.
So got some inspiration from my friend and thought to share with you all some very minor lifestyle changes that can lead you towards a healthy and stress-free life.
1.Start your day with a glass of water :
We all are aware of the benefits of water and if we start our day with a or two glass of water every day it will immediately rehydrate our body after the long hours of sleep. It will provide you with the wake-up charge and gives you the instant energy required to start a fresh day.
Just have the glass of water right after you wake up before brushing your teeth and you will surely observe some positive changes in your body.
2. Eat right:
One of the very crucial factors that determine our health is what we eat in a day. One thing that we should follow is to have home-cooked fresh food only. Eat what is cooked in your home avoid everything that comes in a packet. You should focus on the quality of food instead of quantity, Quality here means you should know what you are eating on a plate. Cut out the portion from your plate but the amount you are eating should be high in protein, high in fibers and less in carbs and sugar.
3. Walking or Exercise:
These days we all spent most of our day sitting in front of laptops, computers, and moreover in front of the TV. A recent study proved that working professionals are spending 70% of their waking time in a seated position only.
Now the question comes how can we improve our physical activities, one very simple tip is to stand from your place every hour, stretch your body, walk some steps for just 2-3 mins only. You can also use stairs instead of a lift.
Just remember only 25-30 mins of walking/day can contribute to your physical activity and soon you all will transform your life towards a healthy lifestyle.
this pic tuely says our story, we all are so much busy in our lives that hardly sleeps for 4-5 hrs daily whereas it should be 7-8 hrs daily.
A good night’s sleep is very important for a healthy life, it just provides with as many benefits as by healthy eating and exercising.
But these days again our mobile phones, laptops are interfering in our sleep pattern at night we spent time with our phones, etc which depriving our sleep pattern.
so if you wants to transform your life in a healthy way just indulge in a good sleep pattern, put down your phone away before half an hour going to bed, and meditate for 5-10 mins for a good sleep.
5. Say no to sugar or processed foods.
Yes, you read it right “no to sugar or processed foods”.
Do you all know how we are getting dependent on processed food these days like chips,cookies, chocolates, etc? These foods have long term bad effects on our body, also refined sugar offers no nutrition, a recent study proved that more than two tablespoons of sugar a day takes a toll on your body and leads you towards imbalance in blood sugar level. Moreover, sugar also contributes to weight gain because sugar is responsible for elevated cholesterol levels in the body, so if sugar has so much of bad effects than imagine what processed food does to your body which has a good amount of sugar in them.
Just replace junks with healthy nuts or dried fruits like raisins, almonds, walnuts, figs, dates, etc which also helps in lowering down your sugar cravings also and provides you with good fat and protein which is very essential for the overall development of the body.
so if you want to achieve a healthy body with an active mind them please try to follow the above-mentioned points I’m sure sooner you will see positive changes in your body.
