Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important, in today’s scenario. It is common to hear about some or the other problem related to health faced by individuals. Your sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical exercise are the two major contributors for lifestyle disorder.
Here are 9 habits you can include in your daily routine to lead a healthy lifestyle.
MAKE BALANCED FOOD CHOICE
You should include variety of food in your meal. Our body needs more than 40 different nutrients. Eating same food everyday doesn’t give the required nutrients to the body.
It is important to have a balanced diet which will provide multiple nutrients required for your body.
EAT PLENTIFUL FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Fruits and Vegetables are good source for vitamins, minerals and fibre required by our body. We should include at least 4-5 servings daily. E.g. A glass of juice in the morning, one portion of fruit during snack time and rest (vegetables) can be taken during lunch and dinner.
EAT REGULARLY BUT CONTROL YOUR PORTIONS
The key to remain healthy is by eating regularly and in the right amount. You should never starve yourself. Skipping a meal like breakfast, will lead to out of control hunger. And this will further result in binge eating or over eating of food. While, eating in-between the meals will help you to control your hunger.
You can carry keep unsalted nuts, fruits, yoghurt, dry fruits as snack items with you.
Also, you should pay attention to the portion you eat. Eating in right amount will help you to enjoy your food without having to eliminate it.
DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS
Drinking plenty of fluids keep your body hydrated. An adult requires 1.5 liters or 8 glass or more fluid a day. Water is the best source for having fluids but you can also include fruit juices, milk, tea etc.
