Questions for you
How many efforts should require to achieve a healthy lifestyle?
Do i supposed to go gym to stay healthy?
What are the factors should i need to care about to keep an active and healthy life?
I am sure once in a life these type of questions definitely popup in our mind.
Achieving a healthy life is possible but how much efforts it requires to achieve that is totally dependent on your current lifestyle.
In this article, I am sharing with you some hacks that help in improving your lifestyle.
We all have been listening lecture throughout our life about the lecture. When we’re young we never focus on this thing.
But scientifically discipline matters most and main factor responsible for our lifestyle.
I mean if you’re disciplined means you’re active and if you’re lazy means you’re dumb.
Some of the benefits:
- You’re never late for work.
- You sleep on time and get up on time.
- You always feel energetic and active.
- Laziness stays away from you
But how you make yourself disciplined?
It’s very simple starting by making a commitment that you need t change my routine from tomorrow.
Changing routine may imbalance your life but trust you need to stick with the change.
The most comfortable state in the world is sleep state. We all love sleeping.
But some persons love too much thus become lazy.
I still remembered when I was working in the night shift, my sleep routine will change in one day.
After steps back to home from work, I just see one thing in the house that is my bed. I usually sleep for the whole day and wake up just 30 min before my shift.
My sleep affects my lifestyle drastically. I don’t have any time for other things.
But then I have no way other than changing this routine.
I had tried many things but only this below strategy works:
I start reducing my sleep hours week by week.
Take small power naps multiple times rather than one complete sleep cycle.
Now in the present, I need just 3-4 hours of sleep which helps me to remain active whole day.
- Gym and Physical Activities
There always have an advantage of practicing the gym regardless of the age. But there is a point of life we all been to when we are too busy because of the job.
Even it is more difficult to crack some time when we’re married and having kids.
Because of the busy schedule, it’s next to impossible to figure out some time for the gym.
I always suggest to buy some basic gym equipment’s and practicing gym in your home.
But if you’re fat or planning to lose some weight then it’s impossible to buy a cardio machine at the home.
Then physical activities play their role. I mean from jogging to cycling and practicing yoga all helps to reduce fat and also increase your stamina.
15-20 minutes of yoga a day keeps you away from diseases. Also increases the flow of blood in the body which makes your skin glow.
Avoid lift choose steps.
Avoid vehicles for very short errands.
Hence this little bit effort makes your lifestyle healthy and active.
- Drinking Capacity
How often you drink enough water?
Well, I guess most of us don’t provide enough water for the body. I mean how I can always remember to drink a glass in some time.
Science suggests that every adult should drink 5-6 litres of water a day.
There are possible chances that we are able to provide enough calories to our body but fails to provide water to digest them.
Without drinking enough water, these calories are nothing but a waste.
But you can solve this problem and always get hydrated by some of the apps that you may find on the internet like “water reminder”
These apps remind you multiple times and tell you to go drink a glass of water.
The hydrating body possess many benefits like glowing skin, long and strong hairs, disease-free life, etc.
