There are many small but significant changes that you can make to your lifestyle, making your life more enjoyable, riding on the wave of great health. Improper lifestyle habits can lead to problems like snoring, fatigue or nervous problems, just to name a few.
While most people fall prey to these habits without completely unawares, there are still many more who either lack the right motivation or are just too easily seduced by some of the more obnoxious habits adopted by the contemporary human! Why not get rid of these obnoxious lifestyle habits, adopting more salubrious ones? Here are some smart choices.
Quitting smoking and drinking is the first step (or leap?) to success
Everybody knows that these are the two great perils to one’s health; hearing this over and over, it causes nothing but irritation. But have you ever thought that smoking can take a toll on your auditory system? It sure can. It has many more threatening effects—however small they may seem to be—other than its carcinogenicity.
And heavy drinking can cause acute anemia apart from cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Smoking often threatens people with erectile dysfunction and alcohol’s relation with cirrhosis is age-old.
But one of the strangest facts about both of these is that they are catalysts for snoring, the most common and sleep-sapping trouble around us! So quit these immediately, if not for yourself but for your partner for sure.
Sleeping position is a subtle matter
Different people prefer different sleeping positions. So, are your sleep positions really healthy? It depends. If you are a snorer, then you have to quit sleeping on your back, and that’s also recommended for people suffering from sleep apnea.
In addition, there are certain solutions available for these in case you control your sleeping position. A left-aligned sleep is generally recommended as it reduces the chances of heart-burns and is also advised in cases of pregnancy.
It’s very difficult to change your naturally favored sleeping habit and sometimes this over-consciousness results in a bad quality sleep, keeping you fatigued and drowsy throughout the day. The intent to change is to stay healthier, and if it’s not fulfilling its sole purpose, then it’s always good to revert to normalcy.
Activities in action
Are you a procrastinator when it comes to exercises? Okay, start with a 10 minutes brisk morning walk. When you’ll start to get better day by day, your own motivation will stretch the schedule to 15 minutes or so.
But 30 minutes of safe exercise a day, keeps the doctor away – remember that. Activities can act as antidepressants reducing severe stress. They also combat heart diseases and diabetes too. If you’re afraid or want a perfect activity plan for your age and health condition, contact a medical practitioner.
He/she can advise you the safest exercise routine to follow which can also cure chronic diseases like gout and arthritis. And who can deny the weight losing capacity of any activity routine?
Take challenges to change—but only for good
It’s important to take challenges in life to keep it interesting enough. Don’t let your habits gnaw at you. Be the captain of your ship and the master of your fate! There are people around you, who depend on you and they are but your support system in return.
People tend to take the rewards for granted and seek for newer adventures. But adventures can only turn out good if its intent is noble. So respect the people who have always been supportive to you.
Ultimately what make you healthier are your thoughts. If your mind is healthy, it’s bound to reflect something on your health as well. So prioritize your life the best way and there’s no richer being on earth than you!
