Healthy Lifestyle/Living is all about keeping a regulator on body, mind, and habits. Right from the instant you wake-up, to how much you eat, how your surrounding, and your sleep schedule all of this move toward a Healthy Lifestyle.
Seating and Sleep Balance:
Each one of us works for 40-45 hours a week which is 8 hours a day. Working here is directly proportional to your deskbound in one place and working in front of the screen. What you need to do here is make a note of the time you sit down in one place and add 5 min of daily walking into it. Daily 8 hours of seating means you need to walk mandatorily for 40 minutes. This will keep your heart and body healthy which is severely affected by long seating.
Smile you are under 24/7 surveillance:
Keep a smile on your face no matter how tough the situation is. A smile does not give a resolution to your problems but will certainly give you energy and peace of mind to think.

Don’t hesitate to give smile to strangers, who know she/he might end up being your true connection.
Spend time with yourself:
I know this will sound insane but talk to yourself at least for 5 minutes every day. This will boost your confidence and self-belief. Spending time with yourself releases negative energy from the body which might otherwise get transferred into people around you. This correspondingly helps to know yourself better, and never get confused in between picks.
Ease your Sleep:
Sleeping early at night is a big challenge for most of us. Maximum of the people tend to become insomniac. Go to bed 5 minutes early and follow it every night. Continue this step until you reach a point where you get 7-8 hours of sound sleep. Avoid the use of gadgets before 30 minutes of going into bed. A fixed sleep schedule makes your body and mind synced and you feel refreshed even on a dully sunny day.
Use bright colors:
Your surrounding is the riskiest as well as favorable to your lifestyle. Choose bright colors when you decide to paint your house. Colors are everything, the world is full of colors and each and everything around you is interrelated to color pattern. Our eyes are the most active body part, what we see is what we feel. Like a pleasant visual to eyes will always command our mind to smile. Always give your mind a reason to smile with the use of bright colors.
Enjoy your exercise:
Workouts can be very lackluster at times. It requires an immense amount of dedication to regularly hit a gym or park for a workout. And, a gap even of few days leads to discontinuing it. To avoid all of this smartly shift to a type of exercise that you enjoy it can be dance or even playing your favorite sport. The reason for this is quite simple you tend to keep doing things regularly which you enjoy and even if there is a gap in your activity you don’t discontinue it. It’s as simple as if you like watching movies and could not watch a movie for few days, you don’t stop watching them.
Healthy Eating Habits:
Healthy eating habits are of the utmost essence in a healthy lifestyle. Here are the things you need to follow for healthy eating:
- Drink a glass of water before you start eating your meal. This will help you to control overeating.
- Use plates while eating package food. It will let you understand how much you need to eat instead of completing the entire packet.
- Once done serving take away the food. You will always end up eating excess if the food is having lovely eye contact with you.
- Use words like healthy and unhealthy for food rather than bad and good. Food is not a person it can’t be good or bad.
- Eat slowly and take small bites and chew the food. This will help in the quick digestion of food and avoid excess fat in the body.
A healthy lifestyle is never an option it should be a part of life. Habits make or break your personality, so start taking these baby steps one at a time and I assure you will undeniably end up having an amazing and super healthy living.
