Hello Beautiful Souls. Gorgeous Humans. I hope you are doing good! Happy Winters!
Well, it is not so cold yet here in my city, but I can sure speak for your cities! The fact that it is November now, tells us that time flies, and so let us embrace time by taking care of ourselves and being happy!
I have been talking about the changes that have happened in my life in the past few months, and today, I am excited to share with you few healthy habits I have adopted in my lifestyle! Please let me know if you tried to adopt these habits too. We can have a great conversation over this!
1. Little to No Sugar:
Having been the kid who used to consume 4 spoons of sugar in almost all drinks, I now understand what is healthier for my body and ensure that I take little to no sugar. I have been doing that since a year, however, it’s only recently that it has become a habit.
2. 10 mins of workout:
I came across 2 videos on Youtube: Exercises for Flat Stomach & Ab Exercises and I have been doing them almost regularly. It is making a difference as my body has toned up. I found out that these videos have worked for me. In case you wish to start working out, try to understand which video you think suits you the most! And enjoy the process.
3. Avoiding Deep fried food items
In India, we have got various deep fried food items, some of which I find quite delicious. (see: Samosa). However, I told myself to take control of my eating, especially the deep fried food items. I already know they are not always healthy to eat, and hence I made a decision to cut down on my consumption. Thanks to the people around me, I have been successfully doing that.
4. Taking in more nutrients
I am going to thank my flatmates again, it is them who are always trying to make sure that they meet the nutrients requirements for their bodies. I consume eggs and milk almost daily. Since I turned vegetarian (I eat eggs) about 11 months ago, I realized that I must consume certain foods in order to get the required nutrients. Although I am yet to learn a lot more about nutrition, it feels nice to be aware of our basic body needs.
5. Drinking enough Water
I had always known this to be a healthy habit, but was never able to adopt it! It is simple, yet it took me quite long to implement it in my daily routine. I do not always have enough water (2 liters) everyday, however I try to have as much water as I can. I have also started taking green tea. The taste isn’t so pleasing for me, but it does feel refreshing!
I am also making efforts to include fruits in my diet. I generally do not like having fruits, however I feel they are too important to ignore. My favorite fruits are pomegranate and bananas. Let me know about yours.
I hope you found this post helpful. Writing this post has helped me become more confident and aware of my choices and will let me continue to practice these habits, and also begin to adopt new ones.
