In spite of knowing all the prerequisites for a disease-free life, we still fail to achieve it. Let’s take a look at the few essential health tips and tricks that can help you stay fit and healthy throughout your life on World Health Day 2022.

What is the significance of World Health Day?

It is celebrated to bring awareness to people’s overall health and well-being. It takes place every year on the 7th of April. An attempt is made to recognize the extensive contribution of medical faculty and their success. The term ‘Staying Healthy’ doesn’t only mean staying physically fit, it can also refer to your mental and social well-being. It’s proven that healthy people are happier, less stressed, and more productive. If you maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can live a long and happy life. Sometimes it is very difficult to find the time and energy to exercise regularly and prepare balanced meals. Nevertheless, your efforts will benefit you in a number of ways and for the rest of your life.

These steps can help you to live a long-term, healthier life:

  1. Exercise:

You should exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

Exercising can help prevent excessive weight gain or maintain weight loss. Burning calories helps prevent weight gain. Having regular gym visits is great, but don’t stress if you don’t have the time to go to the gym every day. Take the stairs rather than the elevator or start exercising while you do your household chores throughout your day so you can reap the benefits of exercise.

  1. Stay Hydrated:

Drink minimum of 3 litres of water every day.

You need water to energize your body and keep going throughout the day. Getting enough water is crucial to many aspects of health, including body temperature, nutrient transport, and brain function. Water is necessary for many reasons: to regulate body temperature, lubricate joints, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly.

  1. Have a sound Sleep:

It’s important to get a minimum of 6-7 hours of sleep.

Your quality of sleep at night directly affects your mental and physical health – and how well you feel during the day. An inadequate amount of sleep affects productivity, emotional balance, brain and heart health, immunity function, creativity, vitality, and even weight. Sleep isn’t just a time to rest your body and mind. Body functions continue while you sleep.

  1. Don’t Skip Breakfast:

It is the most significant meal of the day, it gives you energy throughout the rest of the day.

A good breakfast is the best way to refuel the body. During the night, our bodies use a great deal of energy to grow and repair.  Having a balanced breakfast gives you more energy, as well as protein and calcium for the rest of the night. People who skip breakfast may feel tired, restless, or irritable.

  1. Meditate to live a distressed life

The practice of living in the present moment is called mindfulness. Meditation and yoga allow you to have better relationships as well as maintain a work-life balance. This allows you to stay mindful. Your office stress will be left at the office, which allows you to enjoy time with your family. Meditation benefits mental health in several ways, such as improving focus and concentration, developing self-awareness and self-esteem, reducing stress and anxiety, and fostering kindness.

  1. Be regular with medical check-ups

In the past, people only went to the doctor when they were sick or dying. As people become more educated and empowered about their own health, preventative health care has become more commonplace. Make sure you have your health checked every three or four months. Consult a doctor if you experience any symptoms of a disease.

  1. Don’t sit for too long:

Set a timer once an hour to remind you to get up and move every hour. Get up from the computer and stretch. Taking structured movement breaks will make you feel better about your work. You may also be more productive, and you may also improve your health as a result.

  1. Develop a personal hygiene routine:

There are millions of germs and viruses outside that you come into contact with every day. It is possible for them to linger on your body, and in some cases, they can make you sick. Maintaining good hygiene will help you and the people around you stay healthy.

  1. Rethink Your drink

Sugary beverages like sodas, juices, and sweetened teas are the main sources of added sugar. The consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages is also uniquely harmful and may increase the risk of weight gain in children and adults. During or after exercise, grab some fruit (mandarins, melon wedges, or orange slices) and water to help you feel more energized.

  1. Make a conscious effort to stay connected. 

Relationships are one of the most important aspects of our lives that bring us happiness. The happier the person, the more likely he or she is to have a large, supportive circle of family and friends and to enjoy an active social life. Making relationships a priority is an extremely valuable investment. Make an effort to build and cultivate connections with others, and you’ll soon reap the rewards. In today’s busy society, it is easy to neglect our relationships while taking care of our responsibilities. One of the most common regrets at the end of life is losing touch with friends. Do not let this happen to you. Make an effort to stay in touch with the people who enrich your life. Contact them, write to them, or arrange to see them in person. It’ll make you happier.
