21st century has made many things simpler and possible. Despite all things it had brought in to our lives, one thing that has not made any progress is our personal health. We all are chasing after rules and guides that will make our life healthier on a daily basis. Once we are able to plan and structure our day in a healthy way, and give due importance and focus to small things, it will pave way to achieve bigger things in life. Here are the list of 10 things that will make our day beautiful and help us to lead a healthy lifestyle.
Waking up as early as 5 am to 6 am is essential. Exercising our eyes, practising breathing exercise and yoga will help to calm down the mind and helps it to focus better on things for the rest of the day.
Using small plates
Using small plates for meals is a good practice. It will ensure that we eat less and also eat only to satisfy our hunger. Similarly giving a 30 minute break between two session of meals will ensure that you are eating only to your stomach’s satisfaction, if you do not feel hungry after 30 minutes, you can skip the second session completely. Drinking 2 to 3 litres of water a day is a must for adults.
Practicing to stand up
Most people work by sitting down for almost an entire day. Sitting for the whole day is bad for health. So standing up for 5 to 10 minutes between your work is a must. While taking on phone or while reading something, it can be done standing up. This will ensure proper blood flow through out the body and also doesn’t make you to look awkward standing up during your working hours.
Switch off your mobile two hours a day
Almost entire day is spent with a mobile phone. This could lead to depression. Though we do not realise it directly, we always have a siren beeping all the time inside our brain. We keep giving too much work to our eyes and brain all the time while using mobile phones. Its a hard part for many to not to use mobile phones during the day time. So its better to switch it off during the night, just two hours before you get to sleep, this will make sure you spend some valuable time with your family and also have a peaceful sleep, this will help to calm down your mind and body.
Being idle for 5 to 10 minutes a day without doing any work can be helpful, we can spend this time to think about our dreams and ambitions in life, this will ensure there is a positive vibe around you. Do avoid negative thinking during this time.
Vegetable a day
We hardly include much vegetables in our daily meal, so its a good practice to include one vegetable in to your diet, like monday is for carrots, tuesday is for cabbage and we can chart 7 vegetables for 7 days a week and this chart can be changed on a weekly basis.
Hit the bed before 30 minutes
If you plan to sleep at 10 every night, make sure you are in your bed room before 30 minutes, its better to leave your mobile phone in the hall. More peaceful and deep sleep will ensure productive day that follows.
Maintain a journal
Maintain a journal and note down your entire day’s activities in it, like the help you lent to other people and how it made you feel, what are things you learned that day, make a small notes of your experiences. Reading these notes again will make you feel better. Try to avoid noting down unnecessary things in to journal and also read those entries once a week.
Going for a walk during morning or evening hours is a must. Not doing it like a workout in a treadmill and going for a walk in the open air does more good. Exposing yourself to mild sunlight will ensure you get the necessary supply of Vitamin-D. This will ensure your bones stays strong, also it frees your mind.
Cleanliness is more important
Tidying up your bed after waking up is a must. Being lazy and soggy after waking up will make our brain difficult to function. So we can clean up the bedroom the first thing after waking up and start our day. Taking bath in cold or warm water every day is good for our body.
