Feeling tired? Sleepy? Dizzy? Exhausted? Lost?
Didn’t have enough sleep at night?
Well, you might be running out of good habits and indulging more in bad ones. You need corrections to be made.
Daily life should be filled with activity and rest. Unless your everyday routine is a pre-scheduled one, you won’t be able to cope up with time and fail miserably. Your every day should consist of proper exercise, work, rest, socialization, and interaction. All these elements contribute to well-being. Be it a home stayer or a worker, routines are for everyone.
What is well-being?
Well-being is defined as the state of being healthy, happy, and fit.
It isn’t a one-day process. It takes many days of practice and dedication to attain perfect health.
Why is it important?
It is important to sustain a healthy and happy life. Without being well we can’t focus on any other work we are doing.
Below are the listed best ways to reform yourself for a better tomorrow.
1. Maintain good sleep habits:
Sleep is very important for our body to function properly. Work and rest are basic needs. Sleep hormone reduces anxiety and promotes good blood supply throughout our system. Just think about the days when you couldn’t have proper sleep at night and had to rush to the office in the morning. The worst exhaustion ever. Proper sleep helps our memory to grow and helps us think of new ideas.
2. Exercise and meditate regularly:
Not only sleep but also proper exercise and mediation are needed for a healthy body and a healthy mind. Research says that people who exercise and meditate every day are less prone to diseases both physical and mental. A rising problem in youth and working professionals is mental stress due to academics or work. Meditating for 20 minutes every day in a peaceful environment can help reduce stress and increase productivity.
3. Go for evening walks:
Walking is yet another form of exercise. A walk into nature can help fresh things come in. Nature has a healing process. Scientists believe if we spend 30 minutes of our daily schedule with nature, it will help clear our minds.
4. Take 8-10 glasses of water every day:
Water is the fundamental need to exist. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day. It helps to maintain our body temperature as well as the basic metabolism processes. Some people don’t feel thirsty at all, which is a bad sign. Our body has a specific need for water and if that is not fulfilled you won’t stay fit.
5. Get more social publicly and less on social media:
Being social only on social media platforms has nothing to offer. You might feel why?
It is because the typical platforms share negativity and are sometimes impulsive. Rather than surfing them, switch off your cell and go out. Maybe a park or some nearby area. Hangout with friends and other people. Interact with them more often. Being social out in the public will help you gain more knowledge about people’s lives in real life and is far better than virtually witnessing them.
6. Avoid using too many devices (phone, tablet, PC) throughout the day:
For work, most of us have to use smart devices. Although they ease our work, they make us addicted, inefficient. Lazy and unfit. So you see, a thing which has so many uses also carries so much adverseness in it. Stop reading e-books. Go for actual books. Too much device usage will affect your eyes and optic nerves. The radiations from these devices are harmful and will make you feel more exhausted than you are.
7. Make a to-do list before going to sleep at night:
Preparing a list of things you are gonna do will simplify things. It will save time and give you more minutes to think and reframe activities. You have to think less and have extra time to save. Maintain a diary writing habit along with this. It will give you a depth of insight into your whole day movements.
8. Take evening naps of 5-10 minutes:
Oh! Evening naps are a lifesaver. Most of our work schedules are such hectic that we get very tired at the end and aren’t left with anything but stress. An evening nap of 10 minutes will help you get refreshed and much less sleepy. You can even work actively after that.
Just make sure your boss doesn’t catch you dozing!
9. Take a shower, a couple of hours before going to sleep:
Quality sleep is crucial for an active whole day. Taking showers before a night’s sleep is healthy. It helps to decrease body temperature and promote good sleep. A hot bath is preferable.
