Why You Need to Develop These Healthy Habits

What is a habit? It is a routine of behaviour repeated frequently even subconsciously. Habits can be good or bad/ healthy or unhealthy depending on the outcome experienced after engagement. Healthy habits improve your quality of life; mentally, emotionally, socially and economically.

Some of these Healthy habits include;

  • Having a healthy diet
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes a day
  • Setting time out to relax and recharge
  • Having a sleep schedule
  • Time management; plan your day activities

Here is why you need to develop healthy habits;

Improve your Health Status

Routine exercise boosts cardiovascular health and improves your balance, agility and mobility — all things you need in everyday movement. Having a clean balanced diet provides your body with healthy nutrients, maintains healthy amounts of good cholesterol, provides fibre which is great for digesting and waste elimination and increases your energy level.

Improves Mood

A common ground that all healthy habits have is mood improvement. Physical activity stimulates the production of endorphins; brain chemicals that relieve stress leaving you happier and more relaxed. Ensuring that you have a well-balanced diet and exercising regularly leads to a better physique, which in turn boosts your confidence and self-esteem. A routine of healthy habits gives one satisfaction and certainty.

Brings Balance in Everyday Activities

Coming up with a sleeping schedule and following it consistently, relaxes your mind and body making you more productive! Ensure you have at least 8 hours of sleep. Planning your daily activities brings order and minimizes rush incidents; you’ll end up seeing your accomplishments and improves your accountability. Time management balances your work-life relationship, and in addition to that, helps one spend less time in less productive activities like scrolling through social media at the wrong moment.

Increase Chances of Longevity

The healthier your habits are, the healthier your physical, mental and emotional health flourishes improving your quality of life and adding a few more years to your tab. It’s been studied and proved that those who walk at least 30 minutes a day, had a lower risk of premature death compared to those who did not exercise. A well-balanced diet lowers one’s risk of getting diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis and other metabolic organ diseases.
