I am thankful for having a job in this pandemic period. Lots of my customers are currently experiencing weight gain, depression, stress, and loss of sleep. During this quarantine, most children are affected emotionally and physically not just adults. Nowadays, the weight gain in children are rampant because of lack of activities that could help them gain sweat. I have also explained to them that they are not alone and now is the opportunity to take charge of their health- emotionally and nutritionally. It is time to prioritize again and divert your attention to something more important that will influence your physical and mental wellness. I am hoping a few of those lifestyle changes help you attain a mind and a healthy and strong structure.
Fuel Your Body Consistently
At each meal, fill half of your plate with veggies and fruits. For examples: strawberry, squash or lettuce, one-quarter your plate should have a lean protein like eggs, fish, or beans, along with another quarter whole-grains, wheat, brown rice, or pasta. Snacks must be balanced using a protein like meat, nut butter, or fowl and a more complex carbohydrate like whole mango, celery or apple pieces. Your body consists of approximately 70 percent water. Thus hydration during the day is essential. Water helps regulate your body temperature and physiological functions. Drinking water helps your body eliminate toxins and waste during breathing, perspiration, and urination. You might believe you’re hungry once you are craving water if you are even slightly dried. Strive for 8 (8 oz ) glasses of water during the day and begin first thing in the afternoon.
Get Quality Sleep
Seven to eight hours of sleep every night is excellent for adults. If you are lacking sleep, then also the hormone leptin along with the hunger hormone ghrelin increases reduces, which may let you feel fuller than usual. Food options throughout sleep deprivation are usually high in fat, sugar, and sodium. Set on your phone an hour until you’d love to go to sleep. At night, make a different room to be charged in by apparatus. This may reduce your time on answering emails and networking from bed in the daytime.
Exercise often and aim for at least 30 minutes of activity five days per week and on more or two of these days include weight-training exercises. A sedentary lifestyle increases your risk of depression, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, stress, and obesity. Just like you would a consultation or lunch date, schedule exercise on your own calendar.
