Studies tell us that people you follow these two things well are the ones who feel better and live a healthy life.
For Sleep: One of the most important things that most people neglect is a proper sleep schedule. We know that everyone’s sleep timings are different but the ideal time to aim is for at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep. This helps you to balance the stress and your adrenal load. Try not to use gadgets before sleeping as it radiates harmful waves and always try not to keep any type of electronic gadgets by your side while you are sleeping.
For Eating: Food and nutrition are the two things you need to follow along with your sleep schedule. This means eating at popper time, eating healthy food, and avoiding junk food. Regardless of the pattern you choose, aim to eat at least every four hours, which prevents blood sugar from crashing and can lead to overeating. It’s also recommended to make a list before going to the grocery store so that it prevents you from buying unwanted stuff. Plan your every meal and make it in a way that it becomes healthy and it must have protein, starch, and other nutrition.
Not necessary that you should go to the gym but instead of the gym choose walking, running, and cycling. Fact that you should follow the basic principle of social distancing and making an ideal distance of around 6 feet from everyone. Many gyms and fitness and yoga instructors are also offering virtual classes right now. You can use different household items for weights. There are plenty of exercises that you can perform using different things but the only thing is that you have to be creative and have to maintain a good form to reduce possible injuries. And take comfort in the fact that physical activity doesn’t have to mean a gym-style workout. Many studies show that everyday activities like walking, gardening, and cleaning slash your risk of premature death and improve your overall health.
Following all the above things and missing this one would be a great mistake. Postponing your regular check-up avoiding consultation is not a great idea. If you think Covid-19 is stopping you from visiting hospitals and clinics then it’s better recommended to call your doctor’s office or hospital before arriving, as they may direct you to follow certain containment procedures. These things add up to more serious consequences when ignored. It’s also important to prioritize self-care.
So these were some of the most important tips while you are preparing your wellness routine. Try to maintain the same level of dedication throughout the schedule. Morning is a nice time to start integrating things you didn’t have time for previously and following the things you have written down for today. Always shut down your day with a bit of yoga so that it will help you to drain away all the toxic vibes from your body and will help you to remain calm for the rest of the time till the next day
