On 7th April, the World Health Organization held their 70th World Health Day with the theme: Health For All. The organisation’s goal is to provide Universal Health Coverage, that is, access to everyone to the healthcare services they need, without having to worry about going into debt paying for them.
On this World Health Day , here are 10 different ways you can adopt or improve on to stay fit and healthy
Stay hydrated. Drink minimum 2 litres of water every day. Water helps in energizing your body and helps you get going throughout the day.
Indulge in your food – enjoy and eat! Avoid eating junk, fried and processed food as these foods do more harm than good. Eat healthy and stay healthy.
Work out for at least 45 minutes 3 days a week. It is as important as any other essential activity of your life.
Cut out all your distractions before bedtime. This will help you to get a sound sleep.
Say no to social media after 10 pm. Also, avoid drinking or smoking.
Learn to manage stress:
Meditation is the key to manage stress and depression. Whenever you feel stressed out, try to indulge in your favourite activities that can help you divert and relax your mind.
Say yes to breakfast:
STOP going to work without the most important meal of the day. Breakfast is essential as it keeps you energetic throughout the day.
Be regular with medical check-ups:
Get them done once every 3 or 4 months. If you experience any sign or symptom of any disease, consult your doctor as soon as possible.
Wash your hands after using toilet and before eating food. Sanitize, take a bath, wear clean clothes and eat clean food.
Don’t sit for too long:
Avoid sedentary lifestyle. Go for a short walk or stand up once for every 2 hours of sitting.
