With the advancement of technology that proves efficient with each developing year, the efficiency of machines to overpower the skill of a human is gradually increasing. With the advent of such efficiency, humans now find themselves glued to machines for very single work. The problem with this theory is that in the process of finding an easy way out, we are subjecting our bodies to an irreversible state of inefficiency.
The event of the COVID pandemic was the final nail in the coffin as the very basic need for survival is now to stay indoors. Classrooms have been replaced with mobile phones and laptops, teachers have been replaced by display monitors and audio devices, and the entire life of an individual is now spent sitting on a chair. These modifications in the daily lifestyle of people will only end up in the society being plagued with disorders like postural deformity, poor vision, lethargy, obesity and well, too many fights in the family as a clash of personal interests spending complete days in each others’ company.
However, all is not lost. Even under such alarming conditions, certain improvements in our daily activities are sufficient to bring significant changes in the outcome. The recipe to a healthy lifestyle is to incorporate certain habits that ensure longevity and a happy life.
How do I attain a healthy lifestyle when I am spending all my time at home?
The incorporation of the following changes will definitely help you to lead a healthy lifestyle:
- Maintain a proper sitting posture during your working hours. Do not slouch your shoulders or hunch your back. This might seem laborious at first but would really help you in the long run.
- Drink lots of water- precisely 3.7 litres a day for men and 2.9 litres a day for women. Hydrating your body is also a very important method to detoxify it.
- Eat healthy food instead of canned or packaged food. Cook your food and consume it while it is still fresh.
- Wake up early and take out some time for power yoga or exercises pivoted on your body weight. There are numerous videos uploaded on online platforms by trainers for working out at home which are really effective.
A healthy lifestyle starts from a healthy mind and good habits. Learn to prioritise your life and spend your time accordingly. Most importantly do what you like the most, because life is transient; so make the most of it while you still can.
