How To Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle?

Health is something that we Indians have been compromising with for a very long time. There have been many instances in and around us which clearly show how ignorant we Indians are when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We only act when it’s too late or when we actually feel the need to pay attention to it when it hampers our daily work and chores. The thing is awareness. Proper awareness amongst people of all age groups is necessary and key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When it comes to health of an individual, it comprises both mental and physical health. Being emotionally and mentally fit along with a healthy body is necessary. It not only gives one enough strength to do daily chores, but also elevates one’s self esteem and make them confident about themselves.

Maintain A Healthy Lifestyle

 Let us not look at how one can actually maintain a good and healthy lifestyle.

  • Regular exercising routine: This includes a wide variety of things to do like going to gym, going to nearby park for a stroll or even working out at your home itself. If none of that is feasible, at least doing Yogasana for half an hour 5 to 6 times a week can prove very beneficial in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
  • Maintaining healthy diet: This is one of the biggest grey areas for us Indians when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We tend to eat excessive calorie rich food and do not step out even for a ten-minute walk. I know it’s not possible to start eating healthy items altogether, but baby steps are required. First, start with reducing your consumption of junk foods to 3 to 4 times a month, thereafter, simultaneously start introducing more fruits and veggies to your diet. When you’re comfortable, start following a stricter diet.
  • Invest more time in your hobbies: Hobbies and interests are something that one enjoys doing in free time. So, investing more time in your hobbies means eventually giving more and more time to yourself. It surely boosts your morale. makes you a confident person and keeps you engaged. A working mind is a healthy mind.
  • Seeking help: There’s nothing in seeking an expert’s opinion when it comes to health. That expert can be anyone; your friends, family, co-workers. Do seek help if at any point in life you feel things are not working out. Mental health is something that has been, for very long, underestimated by the Indians. It is therefore important to keep your mind at ease.

Finally, do not rush into these things, take your time, and gradually bring smaller changes rather than a big change altogether. Invest in your mental and physical health and it surely yields a very long-term benefit.
