On World Health Day, Let’s Promise Ourselves To Follow A Healthy Routine
World Health Day is celebrated every year on the 7th April to promote awareness on different health topics. Today I am choosing to write about a healthy routine which we all must follow for a healthy lifestyle.
We all know that a healthy lifestyle leads to a longer, happier life with decreased risk of chronic diseases.
As it is said that, “Health is the Wealth” hence, start planning your day and start it on a healthy note.
Here, I have tips for you for a healthy routine from morning to night.
6:30-7:00 AM – As you wake up in the morning, drink a glass of warm lemon water. Water fires up your metabolism, hydrates you and at this time the temperature of the water matters the most. Having warm water in the morning can help you in flushing out the toxins from the body, which helps digestive system to work better.
7:00 AM – Do yoga or go for an early morning walk, as it helps to reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
7:30 AM – Have your breakfast, make it simple & healthy. Add oatmeals, nuts, eggs, sprouts & a glass of fresh juice to your breakfast. Eat fresh fruits like, banana or papaya, you can even make Parfait for yourself using hung curd or have different kind of smoothies. Do not delay breakfast later than 10 AM.
12:30-1:00 PM – Keep atleast a 4 hours gap between your breakfast & lunch. Have a protein & vitamin packed lunch. Add on lentils like Ahrar, Moong to your plate with fresh green vegetables. Enjoy your food with light buttermilk. Avoid too much of spices & pickle.
3:00-4:00 PM– Keep this time for healthy snacking. You can have a cup of green tea with oat biscuits, nuts or some light snack. You can also have fruits or fresh juice in summers.
6:00 PM– Go for a 45mins brisk walk. If you are in office or college, take out time and walk around for atleast 30mins.
7:30 PM– This is the best time to have dinner. You should keep a gap of 3 hours between your dinner and bedtime and do not delay dinner later than 10 PM. It might affect your sleep.
Dinner should be lightest, eat a ‘no-carb’ dinner. This allows your system to digest food properly.
10:00 PM – Go to bed with lights off. Avoid snacks post dinner.
All the above points & information has been collected from different magazines & reputed websites. I hope these tips will help you to lead to a healthy life.
