8 EASY TIPS FOR A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE

A healthy life is all about balance- be it diet, physical indulgence or psychology. It’s perfectly fine to have a piece of your favourite Apple Pie in dessert as a treat- but what must be kept in mind is when to stop yourself from taking things a bit too far.

In this workaholic ambience, where people don’t even have ample time to sit down and have a sip of coffee, they often forget how important it is to eat and stay healthy for a longer life. Seeking vigorous counselling from a personal nutritionist is not always in the budget. So, let’s pull up those socks and unlock some keys to a healthy lifestyle.

•    COOK FROM SCRATCH

This one is pretty significant, as it allows you to keep a track of what goes into your bowl. You are the complete supervisor of what to eat and what to avoid.

•    A BALANCED DIET IS THE KEY

A balanced diet is the ultimate compilation of vegetables, fruits, water, nuts, fibre and roughage being taken in appropriate proportions. Make a time-table with small portions of food and snacks included for a steady diet. Nutrients like vitamins, minerals, protein, and good fats are necessary for a fit body.

•    DON’T SKIP YOUR BREAKFAST

Breakfast is the “most important meal of the day”, as said, and helps in kick-starting your day and metabolism. Try adding nuts to your bowl of milk and flakes, or fruits. Drink one glass of fresh pulp juice regularly.

•    VARIETY IS KEY – EAT THE RAINBOW

Fill your diet with a versatile range of food items such as fresh veggies, meat, juices, fish, eggs, seeds, pulses, nuts, whole grains and low fat dairy foods top maintain an interest. Don’t go monotonous on your diet.

•    PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES ARE A MUST

Sweat it out regularly, either in gym, outside or home. Pick up a new physical activity as your hobby, and incorporate it in your daily routine. Try hiking, cycling, and rope skipping or boxing apart from your regular stretching. You will meet new people with same interests and you may end up making new friends.

•    DRINK MORE WATER

Water is a vital part of your daily diet. Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day to maintain a steady water level in the body. Avoid fizzy drinks, energy drinks carbonated juices with added sugar.

•    READ THE SMALL PRINT

It’s important to check the ingredients correctly. Go through the mentioned proportions of the items used, what kind of components are being used and how good are they for your body and health.

A good, sound sleep can drain you from all your worries and tensions. It is a significant part of your daily routine, which helps our body to repair all the wear-and-tear it has gone through.
