World Health Day, a global health awareness day is celebrated on April 7 every year and commemorates the foundation anniversary of the World Health Organisation (WHO). Every year there is a different theme that is selected to highlight a priority area of health concern across the world. The theme for World Health Day this year is Our planet, our health and is focused on keeping people and the planet safe and healthy. It aims at creating a world where clean air, water and hygienic food are available for all and economies focus on well-being and health.
World Health Day matters now more than ever and the reason for that is as clear as day. We are in a better place but until a few months back we were dealing with a deadly pandemic that claimed many lives. The Coronavirus has exposed us to another realm of diseases and health hazards and it’s very important for us to stay healthy and promote the same. Here are some ways for you to stay healthy and fit.
Your mom was right. To focus on your health & fitness one of the first steps you need to take is to start sleeping and waking up early. What this does is that it gives you a head start on the day and will help you stay energetic throughout the day.
One of the tips that healthy people swear by is drinking a lot of water and staying hydrated. Although often overlooked following this one thing can do wonders. Since our bodies are made up of 70% water it’s important to drink enough water. Being dehydrated might make you feel tired, can lead to headaches and fatigue.
This Health Day take a pledge that you will always take care of your body, make an exercise routine and follow it diligently. Working out regularly will not only help you achieve the kind of body you have always dreamt of having but will also keep diseases at bay and will also keep your emotional well-being in check.
Another thing that you should focus upon this health day is fixing your sleep schedule or if it’s already in good shape then making sure that you get a sound sleep for at least 8 hours. Often ignored this one thing helps your body to restore to health and rejuvenate and refresh itself. Getting plenty of sleep is one of the first steps in your fitness journey.
This is more of a fact that you know rather than a way to stay healthy or a tip to follow. Try incorporating this into your lifestyle. Have whole grains, lean protein sources such as beans, poultry, and some varieties of fish. Also, make sure you are taking carbs, fats and proteins in the recommended quantities.
On this global health awareness day don’t just invest in your physical health but focus on your mental well-being too. Mental health is a bigger and wider concept than we think. In fact, the simplest way for you to understand how big it is is to reflect on hows many times you feel stressed, frustrated and irritated during the week? Well, there’s your answer. However, some really simple lifestyle changes and eating healthy and working out is a great way to keep your mental health in check and help your brain to function properly.
