Simple Lifestyle Changes towards a Better Health

Updated on April 9, 2020

I am a physiotherapist and healthcare has always been a major domain for me. I love sharing my knowledge to create awareness on healthcare.

Importance of Optimal Healthcare

Each day we humans are on the verge of running behind some or the other thing. Either it is running behind money or running behind time. And the rush for these two is never over as if we all are in a race to stand first and catch that one hour and that one dollar! But in this race of life we all are forgetting that our health is more important than anything else. If we are unable to maintain an optimal health then we may fall prey to different physical ailments. And what is the use of an ill body stressing itself to achieve things. Neither can you take care of your own health nor can you achieve your goals.

What are Lifestyle Changes?

Lifestyle is the way you live your daily life. Your lifestyle includes your habits, the way you perform your daily work, your way of simple things like sitting and standing and also your daily diet. And the changes in this lifestyle are those which you can make for the betterment of your health. Do not worry, I am not asking you to create some big changes in your daily routine. These are just minor ways to keep you healthy and fit despite of continuing your routine the way you always do! So are you ready to take a step towards small change for your own health?

Work Ergonomics

Ergonomics is designed to give you comfort while you perform a particular work. If you are an IT professional, your work will count long hours of sitting in front of the computer and continuous typing. If you are a professor, your work will be more of standing and walking, usage for writing board. Imagine the amount of microtrauma you are causing to your body by faulty methods in your daily work. But ergonomics plays an amazing role here. If you have a sitting or sedentary job, you need to have enough back support on the chair. If you have standing job, then you need to have insoles so as to prevent occurrence of flat feet. These small changes can be very helpful.

Work hard and make a great living

But do not forget to care for your health!

Incorporate Exercise in Routine

In today's world, there is no one who do not how important exercises are. So rather than explaining you the importance of fitness, let me help you with incorporating exercises in your daily routine. Now how to do that?

1) If your workplace is at 1 or 2 kilometers distance, walk instead of using a vehicle.

2) During your sedentary job, get up every half an hour or one hour, walk around in your office and sit again for your work.

3) Use stairs instead of life.

4) Do some 5 minute breathing exercises before going to bed and after you wake up.

5) Do spot marching during continuous standing.

6) Before getting up from bed in the morning, just do at least five easy exercises which you can perform in lying position.

Try these out!

Modify Nutritional Habits

Diet and nutrition counts for a major part in shaping your health. Your food intake needs to be balanced and at the same time healthy too. But it considering your food cravings and lack of time if becomes difficult. So how to handle it? Having junk food is not wrong but having it in unhealthy way affects your health. Choose a place to have less oily and less spicy food. Or best option, prepare your favourite dish at home once a week. Intake of fruits and green veggies is very important. Make sure you do not miss on these.

Be Aware of your Posture

Posture is the root of all the aches in body. So it is important to always be aware of your posture. The way you are sitting, standing or even simply lying down makes a lot difference in your entire body. A small tip for the same. Consider where you spend most of the time in a day. For example if you are spending most of the time in your workplace, you need to be more aware of the posture you sit or stand in, at your workplace. A slouched sitting posture is prone to cervical pain. Long hours of standing in inappropriate posture is prone to lower limb joint pain and also varicose veins. Your slight change and awareness about your posture will save you from your future physical ailments.

Chin Up

Spine Straight

Stand Tall

Walk like a King!

What would you choose to change in your lifestyle?

See results

I hope you find these small lifestyle changes useful. Try these out and do tell me what results you get! You will not see immediate results because we do take time to adapt to changes. But I definitely assure you of great results in long term. In case of any doubts with respect to health and fitness, please feel free to reach out. Take care of your health and stay healthy wherever you are!

      The change in lifestyle has really impacted our lives in a negative rather than a positive way. Apart from finding a work-life balance, we must also incorporate a better nutrition diet, and take out at least one hour's time for doing regular exercise. .

      You've really explained all these healthy lifestyle benefits in a simple yet effective way. Thank you for publishing such valuable hub.
