Importance of right nutrition for healthy lifestyle.

The very first thing that one should prioritize in his/her life is Health and Fitness. It takes you on a path to create a healthy lifestyle of your own.

One of the basic yet important thing our body needs is energy. But that’s not all that’s needed, our body requires certain nutrients and minerals to perform well.

In today’s life, most of us have improper eating habits, right from the timing to the quality of food. Eating proper and healthy means to have simple food which is less in calories, more in fibers and has essential vitamins and nutrients.

Having meals at right intervals is one of the key factors when it comes to maintaining a good digestive system. Our gut (stomach) is the primary factor which is directly connected to our mental health. So, question yourself if you are consciously following these rules or not.

Trouble sleeping?

Sleep heals and replenishes our body

We have always heard “go to bed early” from our parents and elders. Well, it is the right thing to do for our well-being and quality of work life.  

Our body needs 6-8 hours of daily sleep, varying from person to person. According to ancient Ayurvedic text, the right time to go to bed is 9 -10 pm and the sleep between 10 pm – 2 am is the best for our nervous system.

Now, it comes to the clothes that we wear while we sleep. Being comfortable is everyone’s priority, and also the body asks for it. This is one of the main factors that affect sleep. Always wear clothes which are loose, breathable fabric, light and soft. Doing some yoga, calming poses, meditation, having warm milk, listening to peaceful music will help to sleep better.
 
There are certain things which depend on your lifestyle. For a normal man, 6 hours of sleep is enough. But for a body builder 7-9 hours of sleep is necessary because the body needs to rejuvenate. As you age, the sleep decreases. Children naturally need more sleep for their overall growth.


Address your mental health.

Stress, depression
Control your mind and emotions.
The physical and mental health are interlinked. If you have a sound body, you will have a sound mind. And a sound mind will keep you happy, motivated, relaxed, calm and fresh which in turn will make your physical life better.
 
Now, there are some foods that affect your mental health which you shouldn’t be consuming on a daily basis. And if you consume the below mentioned foods in an improper way or time, you might create a problem for yourself:
 
Empty stomach: spicy food, junk food, citrus fruits.
 
Before sleep: chocolate, ice cream, pasta, pizza, citrus fruits etc.
 
Morning: white bread, pancakes, muffins, or oily items.
 
And these are a few things you should avoid: sugar, caffeine, soft drinks, refined food, saturated fats, salt etc.
 
 

Diet

Diet is key
Now that you have made up your mind to burn calories to maintain your health, diet plays an important role to replenish your glucose in your body. But hey, that’s not enough, you need other nutrients to build your broken tissues and muscles and to restore vitality of your body.
 
So, having fruits, nuts, clean water, complete foods such as milk, yogurt, cheese, ghee, potatoes, kale, salmon etc will be a key part in your diet. As mentioned above, right time to have food is important for your body to absorb it properly without any hindrance.
 
Make sure to have multiple food nutrients in a meal. Try to have a meal consisting of carbohydrates, proteins, fats as macros and vitamins, minerals and fibers etc. Don’t just have carbs or proteins or as such at a time, mix them.
 

Daily Workout Routine

Fitness, workout
Train your body.

Exercise is the first thing that comes to our mind when we say fitness. There is yoga, sports, gym and certain exercises to be fit and have good health.

In our busy lives, we don’t have much time to hit gyms, going to yoga classes or play a sport. Those who are doing these, you guys rock. But those who are not able to do it, at least spend 30 minutes doing any kind of exercises that you feel comfortable in the morning or in the evening. The link shared below would help to decide which workout routine you could take on.

 Choose which fits your lifestyle and get going.

Alright then, you have planned to eat good food, exercise, right supplement. Now its time to have a sound sleep for better health. Without sleep, you seriously cannot have a healthy lifestyle. As your body needs good food, it needs sound sleep.

So, understand the human body, how it functions and its maintenance which can be a great way to address a good and healthy lifestyle.
