How have the past few days of 2022 been? Hectic?
Well, balancing both work and your health is difficult. In between managing work, your health tends to take a back seat.
Before it gets too late and your jam-packed routine affects your health severely, it is better to pay proper attention to yourself from the start itself.
Staying healthy does not take much time and efforts. Here are some easy ways to maintain your health while managing everything.
Tips For Staying Healthy
- Exercise Regularly
A sedentary lifestyle could negatively affect your health. You need to stay active to stay healthy. Don't do much but exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes in the morning.
If you can’t block this much time in your busy schedule, squeeze exercise in some other ways like:
- Walk into your building.
- Take stairs instead of elevators or lift.
- Walk around your office after the meeting.
- Do certain house chores while standing.
- Do Not Skip Breakfast
No matter how busy your schedule is, never skip breakfast. It is the most important meal that prepares your body for the entire day. Skipping it can decrease your productivity & efficiency, make you feel tired & lethargic, and increase your stress level. If you don't want any of this to happen, consume a heavy protein-rich breakfast to stay healthy and full for longer.
- Manage Your Stress Level
While juggling with your busy schedule, stress is obvious. It could directly impact your body. So, to decrease your stress level:
- calm your mind,
- think positive thoughts,
- get yourself some rewards,
- pamper yourself,
- meditate, and
- do things that you like.
- Do Not Sit For Too Long
Most of our time is spent sitting either at home or work. Sitting for too long in poor posture can strain your neck, shoulders, back, and knees. It even increases the chances of severe health issues. So move or stretch a little at regular intervals at your desk itself.
Apart from this, improve your posture and prevent back problems by placing our Bael Wellness Coccyx & Tailbone and Lumbar Support Cushions on your chair. These seat cushions are an excellent way to support your back, relieve pain, correct posture, and eliminate all the risks associated with sitting.
- Get Adequate Sleep
Do you cut down on your sleep due to the busy schedule? Do not do this. Depriving yourself of sleep can make you even more restless, stressed and increase the chances of chronic illness.
For maintaining a healthy lifestyle, it is important to sleep between seven and nine hours. To improve your sleep quality, cut down your screen time before bed, ensure your bedroom is dark and noise-free.
- Stay Hydrated
Most of you might forget to drink water while you are busy. But to stay healthy, you need to stay hydrated. Dehydration can cut off your productivity to a great extent.
Drink at least two liters of water a day. When your body is properly hydrated, it functions well and fights the common internal problems that might come your way.
Balancing your health and work is no longer impossible. You need not do much. Just drink plenty of water, exercise, sleep, place the cushions on your seat, do not stress, eat a healthy diet, and you are ready for the busy schedule in 2022.
