Are you someone who gets tired easily? Does travelling or even shopping knock you off schedule, making you tired for at least two days after? What about common colds; do you find yourself catching it more often that those around you?
If you answered yes to the questions above, then chances are that you’re not taking very good care of your health. This is a common thing in today’s busy world where everyone’s competing against time. Here are a few ways to get your health back on track.
Make arrangements for better sleep
We know that for most busy people, sleep is a luxury they often have to skip. But the lack of sleep can be the start of many problems. Apart from making you feel like you are always short of energy, lack of sleep can also damage your immune system. This inevitably results in you falling sick more often than you’d want. Aim to get in at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep every night. If you’re feeling very fatigued, don’t hesitate to grab a power nap. Trust us, they are not only for babies!
Train yourself to exercise regularly
If you’re getting enough sleep, and feeling a little more energetic, then it’s best that you start making preparations to include regular exercising into your daily schedule. We know that when people are really busy, they don’t really have time to hit the gym. And while going to the gym is great, it’s not the only way to get in a little exercise each day. You can work out from home, at a fixed time that suits your schedule. Even jogging or regular bicycle rides are a great way to keep in shape.
Find out if you’re eating correctly
Even if you pick up a bike at the next bicycle sale in Singapore and ride it regularly, you’re not going to get great results if you are not eating the correct things. Try to get in your 3 main meals somehow, regardless to how busy you are. Cook your own meals if possible, so that you know what’s going in to your meals. As tempting as it is, try not to skip breakfast too often. If you’re someone who feels uncomfortable after a big breakfast; grab something simple. This will give you the correct start for your day, inevitably helping you to get in your daily exercise, and then the required sleep.
Form healthier habits
If you truly want to get healthier, and that too, fast; then apart from the above three tips, you also need to form a few healthy habits. Stop snacking on unhealthy food; reach for foods that provide you with energy and nutrients instead. Take the stairs whenever possible and avoid eating at your desk; not only will it make your desk messier, it will also rob you of the chance to free your mind briefly from work related stress, and also the little exercise that walking to the corner deli gives your legs…
