Health is wealth and fitness isn’t a fad, it is a lifestyle. Series of similar, repeated actions done each day is what makes for a healthy and fit life. The accumulated effort stretched over time is the goal and yet, it is what’s particularly difficult to do.
If you’ve ever wondered if you have the grit to stick to healthy choices so that it becomes what you do every time, not just sometimes, then this list is for you.
Yes, the year is almost at its end but positive lifestyle changes can still be made now. Why wait for 2019? Explore the following pointers. You just might latch on to one or more. Start 2019 earlier.
It’s not just important, it is necessary. Healthy people get quality sleep, which amounts to 7-8 hours- at night. During sleep, the body rejuvenates itself, worn muscles heal and become stronger and other vital body functions take place. Under sleeping is as bad as insomnia, the condition suffered by sleep-deprived people.
Healthy people stay hydrated at all times; during the day, at night before sleep and first thing when they wake. The habit of drinking water has multiple benefits that assure overall health and can’t be ignored. Our bodies are made of more water, water is life.
Some experts advise that the recommended time period for getting optimal sleep is between 8 p.m – 10 p.m and 4 a.m – 6 a.m. Regardless, individuals sleeping time vary depending on lifestyle and other vital factors. The point; it’s a general rule to go to bed early and wake up early too. Healthy people are up before the sun or with it.
First off, there is no rule to what time is best for an ideal morning workout. But, starting your day with some routines is a great way to begin your day with energy. And it is common news that exercise juices you up to have a very active and energetic day. A quick 20 – 30 mins workout early in the day before seven is a fine way to keep a healthy routine. A simple run, a visit to the gym or some yoga stretching in the house will do. Choose a healthy obsession.
Health goes beyond the physical, it is also mental. Healthy people take time to feed their minds as much as, if not more than the body. Of course, quiet hours of the day are the best for meditation. Whether your interest is to take stock of your life, ponder philosophical thoughts, or engage in some other spiritual exercise before seven in the morning works best.
Spirituality is an important part of existence. And what is more, it’s not an exercise for only religious people. Every conscious person can invoke the object of their veneration at any time of the day, many feel at dawn is quite perfect. Healthy people pray too, yes they do.
Set their Intentions
Healthy people don’t just jump off the bed and go. They think first. The same way it helps to empty the head by writing down thoughts before sleeping is how arranging your thoughts before you start the day is. Healthy people plan their day and it’s among the first things they do once they wake up.
Start out on a path of gratitude
Gratitude propels a vibe that permeates the whole day with positivity and kindness. Healthy people start their days being grateful. More importantly, they seek opportunities to express such gratitude either by doing a loved one a favour, sending a thank you/good morning text etc.
Take in Motivational information
Because they know how disrupting negative energy can be, healthy people, stave off the darkness by seeking out clean energy. Listening to a productivity hack, some comedy or other inspirational podcasts is helpful. For bibliophiles, reading a great quote or a few paragraphs from a book may be all that’s needed to fill their energy space with all the right feels.
Healthy people are very imaginative people. They dedicate more time to exploring their crucial insides before consuming external information. This involves centering their psyche, emotional state, flexing their psychological and mental muscles etc Healthy people feed their hope and invest in their minds’ eyes.
It’s never too late to start a good thing.
