Sleeping habits are crucial for healthy living. We kept busy doing lots of stuff daily, running errands, coping with work stress, completing to-do list tasks, and much more. It would be best if you had time to take off time and rest for some time. Sleep helps to energize you and get prepared for the next day’s struggle. Improvising your sleep routine also helps in getting your schedule to align appropriately. A standard healthy lifestyle demands 8 to 10 hrs sleep every day.

Exercise and Yoga:
Want to stay healthy and lose some pounds fast, which you might have gained in quarantine. Regular exercise helps to de-stress and keeps you joyous and healthy. No matter how much effort we put, but somehow we end up eating harmful food; also, loneliness and change of routine has made us stressed, uneasy, and depressed.

A thirty-minute exercise every day helps to adjust hormones and get you relaxed after a long stressful day. As a start, you can begin with ten minutes.
Connect and de-stress:
Loneliness and keeping yourself away from others is harmful. It increases the level of stress in your life. Get connected with the people you love. Meet your parents; make a plan with friends – when you are in some confusion, consult with those close to you. Sometimes we cannot solve a simple problem, and our near people show us in the right direction. You can also consult with the experts to get out of trouble. When you connect, you will have increased happiness, better health, and longer life.
Find me time:
Sometimes we get too busy fulfilling our responsibilities that we forget we need some time to vent out – a particular time to relax and have a fresh start. A daily repeat schedule affects our mental and physical health. You can fulfill this task only by:
- Try to allocate a specific short time for yourself daily. At this time you can watch your favorite show, read a book or just relax on your sofa.
- Try to meditate, do yoga, or anything that feels relaxing to you regularly.
- Take a day off for the spa and massages and get relaxed.
- Make plans with friends, meet them for lunch, and have fun in your life.
Health is crucial for a joyous and happy life with full zest and amusement. And you can achieve the goal by paying a little attention to your lifestyle and bringing a few changes to your life. Stay healthy – Stay Happy!
