You can slather on as many creams and serums as you like but when it comes down to looking young and healthy, your lifestyle makes a huge impact. Often it’s those small changes you make that can transform your life. A small change in your daily routine with a sprinkle of positivity and motivation can help you feel younger, more active and emotionally balanced.
1. Drink more water :
Hydration is the key to a healthy life after all the brain is made up of around 70% water. An average adult should consume a minimum of 2 liters of water daily, to help flush out salt and toxins from the body. You can also infuse your water with fresh fruits or herbs if plain water bores you.
2. Eat Well :
Eat breakfast like a king and you will be charged through the day. Having a healthy and wholesome meal in the morning prevents you to binge on unhealthy snacks later on in the day. Try to replace the parantha and excess butter with some oats, eggs or smoothie for a good balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. Add green to your diet, could be leafy vegetables or green tea, they have immense health benefits. Eating slowly helps our brain to process how much food our body needs a mistake most of us make, which leads to overeating.

3. Regular Exercise :
Create a morning ritual that you can look forward to! Start by taking the stairs or parking away from the door so you are forced to walk. Once you have a routine in place, work out 3-4 times a week to see the benefits. Taking long walks or doing yoga with the extra 10 minutes you have in the morning are baby steps you can take to a healthier lifestyle.
4. Sleep :
Most of us often forget how important it is to relax. Our body gets worn out from all the stress and tension our mind and muscles carry, so lie down relax and clear your mind of all the negative thoughts. Our body talks to us and it’s time we begin listening to it. As we rest and get our well-needed sleep of 8 hours, the body repairs itself, after which you can work and enjoy harder. Self-care is an important thing, focusing on our body and mind improves not just our physical but also mental strength.
Take a resolve to become healthier this World Health Day.
