Health is just like wealth. Until we lose it, we don’t understand its real value. When there are some major issues going on related to our health, only then do we say “No! Now I have to take care of my health”.
If we take care before we get ill, then we don’t have to face the pain of diseases. The time and energy you spend daily on your mobile phone, if you invest only that amount of time and energy on your health, then you have no idea how much your life can be improved.
So, in this week’s article, I will share with you 5 simple and easy-to-implement tips which are much more effective. So, let’s get started on How To Be Healthy In Life? with the Smart idea.
1: Sleep On Your Left Side
This picture clearly demonstrates that why we should always sleep on our left side. According to the structure of our stomach, if we sleep on our right side then the stomach acids can cause a lot of problems in our health.
Like improper digestion, problems in blood flow, heartburn. On the other hand, if we sleep on our left side, the stomach acids can do their work more efficiently and as a result, digestion happens very well.
2: Water Drink Reminder
In our busy lives, most of us totally forget to drink water from time to time. Or just when we feel thirsty, we drink a little bit to quench the thirst.
Which is not good at all for our health. There is an app named water drink reminder. I have given the link. This app can solve this problem.
Using this app you can easily keep track of when and how much water you are drinking daily and also this app will remind you to drink water from time to time by giving you notifications on your mobile. In childhood mom used to do it, now the app is doing it!
3: Walk More
According to WHO that is World Health Organization’s recommendation we need to walk 8000 steps daily in order to stay healthy and fit. How many steps do you walk on a daily basis?
I think most of you can’t answer the question correctly. Lord Kelvin said, “If you can’t measure it, you cannot improve it”, so to measure your daily steps you can use a fitness tracker. I personally use Mi Band 2 Hrx edition.
It will help you to get an exact idea of what is your current daily average steps and how much you should increase them.
It is not necessary to buy the band to walk. If something is necessary, that is awareness. Find out any excuse to walk more. Use stairs instead of the lift, or you can just walk here and there in your house also, little is more.
4: Chew Your Food 32 Times
According to Ayurveda, the root of every disease is our stomach. If we can keep our stomachs healthy, then we can easily stay healthy.
The main two things that are needed for a healthy stomach –
- Avoiding junk foods,
- Have good digestion power
In both two cases, it will be very helpful if you can eat your food after chewing it 32 times. Any junk food, if you chew it 32 times and then you swallow it, you will notice it will not feel so tasty anymore.
On the other side, if you chew any healthy food 32 times, it will be tastier to eat. So if you can make it a habit of chewing your food 32 times, then automatically you will no more like to eat junk foods at all.
And also 50% of the digestion process is supposed to happen while the food is in our mouth. The remaining 50% is in our stomach.
If we swallow the food quickly, then the part of the mouth remains incomplete and as a result, we suffer from different digestion problems.
So if we can make it a habit of chewing our food 32 times, then we can easily overcome many of these problems.
5: Create A Healthy Environment
If your all close friends are like this, that they all day keep eating junk foods, for whom being lazy is cool and doing exercise is boring.
And they used to smoke 10 to 12 cigarettes daily, also many often they celebrate with alcohol party, if all of them follow this kind of lifestyle, then it is common for you to adopt the same kind of lifestyle to cope up with them.
On the other hand, if your close friends are health conscious, who regularly exercise, avoid junk foods as much as possible, then it is common for you to adopt a similar lifestyle to them.
So if possible try to choose your closest 5 persons in life with whom you spend most of the time in a day, who are health conscious.
Who understand that “Health is the real wealth” and also practice it. Also if your freeze is all time packed up with a lot of junk foods like Cadbury and cold drinks, then stop doing this.
Because if your own room is full of junk foods then it is meaningless to try to be healthy. Because it will become too hard for you. So try to create a healthy environment around you, which will always motivate you to lead a healthy lifestyle.
In the end, let’s quickly sum up the whole article. To easily stay healthy –
- Always sleep on your left side
- Use the water drink reminder app and drink the right amount of water daily
- Walk 8000 steps daily
- Chew your food 32 times before swallowing it
- Create a healthy environment around you
