Coping with the fast track routines of ours, we all get tired. Without the desired repair to the body and mind, we get drained, day by day. And as it is used to say, “you cannot pour from an empty cup” eventually you are left with nothing to offer, to others as well as yourself. It has happened to all of us, at least once in our life-time, isn’t it? Self-care is not selfish. It is the way to get your powers back.
There is a saying, “What you eat, you become”. Believe it or not, along with the healthy habits and healthy lifestyle adaptation, your diet is the gateway to the healthy life, body and mind. If you have never considered to start a health care routine or do not used to stick to one, there is a good news, it’s never too late to try again. This is definitely true when it comes to nutrition, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. So, let’s get started, today. And here is the simple plan to follow.
Set your biological internal clock at its natural timings. Try to wake up early morning before the sun rise. The body tends to perform more efficiently this way. It keeps you on track, you will find yourself more productive and hence it will keep you from the stress and depression of deadlines.
Plan your day with an exercise routine. Kick start your day with yoga or meditation, spare few minutes for exercise before lunch and offer your body some stretching exercise before going to bed. It will help you to get through your day with a lot of ease.
Try to drink detox water as much as you can. It will keep you hydrated purify your body from harmful toxins and give a boost to the digestion and immunity.
Make a habit to take a good breakfast with almost 40% of your daily calorie requirement. It is better if eat something light for dinner, preferably 4 hours before going to bed. It prevents the peptic acid disease and GERD, gives the food plenty of time to digest properly.
PACK YOUR LUNCH
The food from the restaurants and take away is mostly unhealthy, full of additives and preservatives. It is preferred if you pack your lunch, snack or coffee with you.
There is no way to calculate the results if you do not keep the tracks. Track your every day performance according to your plan and make the adjustments as you go.
If you are doing great, you should reward yourself to encourage this behaviour. Take a bubble bath may be, binge watch your favourite show, or whatever you like. Make sure that it doesn’t interfere with your routine.
MAKE IT FUN
Do not impose the health care routine as restrictions on yourself. You should know it clearly that why are you doing this! why you need to do it ! and why you should not quit!
Do not over burden yourself. You can add more habits and steps to the plan, bit by bit, according to your comfort. With the health care routine, give yourself the same care and attention that you give to others, and watch yourself bloom.
