Whenever we are talking about successful people, who achieve more than something extraordinary in their life. They have one thing in common, a healthy balanced lifestyle. Do you often get up “on the wrong foot” and your every day does not go so well? All you need to do is stay active, efficient, cheerful and from the very morning. Yes, as soon as your alarm rings.
Here is how you can make it happen:
1. Make a Healthy Snack
Green vegetables, especially leafy ones, are very healthy. They contain many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other substances your body needs. They also contain chlorophylls, which have antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Now do you understand why including as many green vegetables as possible in your diet is such a healthy habit?
Of course, eating salads with every meal can be difficult. So, we hasten to remind you about a wonderful smoothie drink. By the way, we recently wrote about green smoothies. There are many recipes for vitamin cocktails are hidden at once, lifting mood and energizing.
Want to be active during the day? Feel free to beat fruits, vegetables, berries, herbs, water, yogurt, milk or juice in your blender. And in a minute a hearty snack or dessert is ready (or maybe lunch, if you add a little oatmeal to the mixture). Take a bottle with you and fill your body with vitamins all day.
2. Recharge yourself
It’s no secret that sports are good for physical and mental health. They also improve mood, improve performance, help relieve stress, and promote longevity. If you don’t exercise regularly because all these squats and crunches are intimidating to you, it’s important to find some kind of activity that you enjoy.
Yoga? Dancing? Tennis? Swimming? Pilates? Choose what you like the most and go for your workout early in the morning! If you don’t have a lot of time, you can do any home workout without additional equipment.
Remember, exercising has a positive effect on mental performance and has a positive effect on blood sugar regulation, which means it helps you to be more active, creative, efficient and, finally, slim.
3. Put your gadgets aside
Many people are so used to being online 24/7 that they never part with their mobile phone. And some even sleep with him in an embrace. That is, the first thing they (read: all of us) see after waking up is a mobile phone screen, unanswered calls, unread messages, notifications of new comments, likes, work emails, and so on and so forth.
British scientists have found that 67% of people constantly check their phone, even if they are not waiting for any important calls. They, as they say, have a fear of falling out of the information space. Be that as it may, this is not the best way to start the day, but only harm to health.
It is much better to put all your devices aside in the morning (yes, it is better not to turn on your iPhone, iPad, and even the TV) and spend time with your loved one. This will not only set you in a positive mood, but it will also improve family relationships.
If you live alone, devote this time to building relationships with yourself: do meditation, yoga, exercise, read an interesting book, or just stay in the shower for a while. Within a few days, you will notice that if you do not bury yourself at the phone screen, barely opening your eyes, during the day you will be more active and efficient.
Numerous studies have shown that meditation can help relieve stress and bring thoughts and feelings in order. In addition, it is very beneficial for health: meditation strengthens the immune system and reduces pain and inflammation at the cellular level. And, of course, they cheer up and teach self-control. Many people suffer from various addictions in their daily life. This activity helps with alcohol addiction treatment as well. Many experts believe that for staying sober, it’s quite effective.
Set aside at least 5-10 minutes a day to sit in peace and quiet. By the way, the morning is perfect for this. After a few days of daily practice, you will notice that you get less tired during the day, it becomes easier for you to concentrate and you are in harmony with yourself. And this, in turn, will help you make decisions faster, be more efficient and satisfied with your life and yourself.
5. Plan your day
If during the day you are engaged in business and requests that colleagues, relatives and friends constantly throw up (and they will never stop doing this!), You can hardly always keep everything under control. Be more active and courageous – plan your day ahead.
There are tons of time management techniques and books that describe them, so pick whichever you like best. The key is to make sure you understand exactly what goals you want to achieve today, and don’t let other people lead you astray.
Another important tip – try to use email and social networks as little as possible during the day, this will increase your productivity at times (unless, of course, your work is connected with mail or these very social networks).
6. Come to work an hour early
Come to the office earlier than your colleagues and immediately get down to important things. Firstly, this way you will do more things, and the load during the day will be less. Second, it can impress your superiors.
But most importantly, one hour of work in silence is productively equal to several hours of work in a normal noisy office atmosphere, when phones are constantly ringing, the boss asks a bunch of questions, and e-mail reports new letters every minute.
If you want to be successful or achieve anything big in your life. A health lifestyle is a must. Its all upon you how you deal with it. All you got to do is make the right choice for yourself. Decision is yours to make.
