365 days a year, 24 hours a day and a whole lot of things to learn and do. We live in such a fast paced world that we need to be constantly updated on what is happening where. A small miss and we are made to feel weaker. We have so many things in hand, yet we see it escape through the gaps. There is so much wrong with our generation that we are forgetting how to make things right. In the race of being better than the best, we forget to pause and take time off for ourselves.
A little lifestyle change to cope up with the fast paced environment is more than a promise you make to yourself. Analytically speaking, its and investment you make for yourself for a better future. The more confident you are about your schedule and your lifestyle, the better balance you create in your universe, the healthier you get and the smarter you plan for your future.
We have come up with a list of things you must follow in order to ensure a healthy future:
1. A Disciplined Sleeping Schedule:
‘Early to bed and early to rise’ might not seem practical to you, agreed. But a proper 6-7 hour sleep is necessary for the body to function healthily. You might be tough enough to pull off all-nighters but you need to start paying attention to your body clock. Your mind needs rest as much as your body. A disciplined sleep schedule helps relieve stress.
2. Work Hard, Play Hard:
It might seem impossible to follow this mantra but you need a balance between your work life and your leisures. You surely don’t want to miss out on your social life because of your extra working hours.
3. Indulge in Physical Activities:
It is easy to sit on a couch and munch on those calories with a beer in hand, but it takes extra effort to utilise that time to move your body a little. Your muscles need some stretching just like your mind does. If working out is not your thing, play some outdoor sport. Working out or simply exercising at home for half an hour a day can do wonders to your body.
4. Eat Healthy:
This is the most basic and the oldest mantra for a healthy body. And yet it tends to get ignored the most. Cut down on your calories by avoiding mid-work munches. Instead include more fruits and juices in between the long work hours. Junk food can wait until weekends.
5. Pursue Your Hobby:
This is a great stress buster. take time in between your work life to pursue what your heart is into. Be it singing, writing or kickboxing. It doesn’t matter even if you suck at it as long as it relieves you from your stress. After all, not all of us are blessed with a job that’s our passion too.
6. Make Travel Plans With Your Family/Friends:
Its human nature to take things for granted when given easily. And mostly you take your families for granted thinking they would ‘understand’. Well, they do understand but you need to take some time out for to appreciate their effort. The best way to show appreciation is to make travel plans with them. If not more, travelling will give you a break from your hectic life and who knows you might as well find a hidden explorer in you!
