A healthier lifestyle:
When we decide that we want to be healthier or have a healthier lifestyle, we tend to set big goals for ourselves. What we don't realize is that it's not the big goals that get us results. Only our lifestyle can give us results.
Our lifestyle is a process that is built up from many small habits and therefore our energy should be spent on building better habits - not on chasing better results.
It is therefore not about focusing on the big goals, but about starting with small actions and small steps, which are put into a system and in the long term can make a big difference.
1. Prioritize your sleep
Sleep is crucial for your profit and it is therefore important that you get enough sleep. Many of us do not. 7-8 hours is enough for most people and it is important to prioritize. It can be difficult to build new good habits if you lack surplus. You can quickly experience symptoms such as fatigue and reduced ability to concentrate if you are sleep deprived. In the long term, lack of sleep can lead to a weakening of the immune system, a negative effect on mood and psychological disturbances. All these factors have an impact on our activity level, dietary habits and a number of other factors. That is why it is super important that you prioritize your sleep.
Movement gives you energy and energy. It improves your health and reduces the risk of developing a number of lifestyle diseases. Try and see if you can't make a good structure of which days you want to train and get it prioritized. Remember that it must be realistic so that you experience success and not defeat. So we are not saying that you have to run a 10 km trip every time, a gentle workout or a walk can also do that. It's never too late to get started!
3. Drink water
The majority of our bodies consist of water and it is therefore the most important nutrient for us. During the day, you lose water through the skin, lungs, digestive system and kidneys. This is to ensure that waste products leave the body. You must drink at least 1-1.5 liters of water per day. If you are active, however, you may need more. Buy yourself a large drinking bottle (1 litre) that you always have with you, so that it is natural for you to take a sip of water once in a while and so that you can keep an eye on whether you are getting enough water.
4. Fresh air
It is really good for your mental health to get fresh air once a day. Get out and go for a walk in nature and put your phone away in the meantime so that you are present. Not only do you get to clear your head and increase your mental well-being, you also get to move your body. So you kill several birds with one stone! Your daily dose of fresh air can also be cycling to work. It gives good energy to start and end the day with a little fresh wind in the cheeks.
