Let’s see what are those healthy habits that we can incorporate into our daily lives:

1. Healthy eating‍

Eating a balanced diet does not respond to a short-term goal; it is rather a healthy lifestyle. Providing your body with macronutrients (protein, healthy fats, carbohydrates) will allow it to function properly and, therefore, have a better state of mind, good performance at work and in your daily life.

Eating healthy foods and maintaining a healthy diet applies whether you want to lose fat, gain muscle fat, or simply maintain good health and prevent long-term disease.

Make sure that more than 70% of the food you eat is organic and unprocessed. Search for fats in nuts, avocado, olive oil and keep away from immersed fats. Include protein in most of your meals. Among healthy habits, it is recommended to reduce sugar consumption, in general, and lower the portion of carbohydrates at dinner, since these provide energy that you will no longer need and can be stored as fat. Maintain good hydration, around 2 liters a day. Eat consciously, until you are satisfied.

Listen to your body. He knows how to tell you what things are good for him and revitalize you, and what are heavy and less beneficial for the body.

2. Physical activity

It sounds cliché, but physical exercise, together with a healthy diet, is the key to good health that lasts over time.

Strengthens the immune system; prevents cardiovascular diseases; creates a hormonal environment that improves mood; avoid risk factors for certain types of cancer and other chronic diseases; controls anxiety; raises self-esteem; improves concentration, and we could go on infinitely. The human being needs physical exercise to stay in good health, both physical and mental. At any age, a sedentary lifestyle is a health villain, and to combat it, we only need 30 minutes a day of physical activity.

3. Have a routine in your life

This is one of the healthy habits that have great power in our state of mind and our mental health.

On the one hand, anxiety and stress increase when thoughts, responsibilities, and concerns are disorganized and form a kind of fog, which does not allow us to see the panorama. We feel that we have a thousand things pending, the load and the demand are oversized, and we become paralyzed, instead of acting.

On the other hand, the feeling of “having nothing to do” for a prolonged period can affect our mood, because it brings about a questioning of the meaning of the days and a loss of interest, not finding any clear goal or expectations. This can bring health problems and becomes fertile ground for bad habits.

In either case, no matter how simple this routine is, it allows us to start the day, get going, organize ourselves, distribute time and increase our security and satisfaction by completing those small goals that we set for ourselves. A healthy life needs a certain order that feeds good habits and keeps us from self-sabotage.

4. Set goals for a better life

Incorporate healthy foods into our diet, exercise 3 times a week, sleep at least 8 hours a day, improve hydration, reduce time on social networks, read more, etc. No matter the complexity, it is important to have goals. Goals are an engine to start every day; they help keep our why and our meaning clear; they allow us to move forward; they help us improve, by being able to measure our process, and all this translates into a healthy life and a better daily experience.

Sometimes we think that saying “goals” means big goals. A goal can be to make the bed when we wake up; call a friend with whom we have time without talking; finally, see the movie we want; In short, any goal, no matter how big or small. One day translates into small actions. Goals allow these small actions to be a little more conscious, to maintain coherence with a final objective and prevent less beneficial things from getting through along the way, taking our attention and taking us away from what we wanted.

5. Recognize you

Giving ourselves credit is super important to improve our self-confidence. We give a lot of attention to what does not work out so well for us; to the things that we still have to achieve and what about those things that we have achieved? To date, you have won several victories, small or large, and living with this awareness boosts your confidence to fight new battles.

Acknowledge your weaknesses, but also acknowledge your strengths. Let’s be fair to ourselves.

6. Feed social life‍

Among the healthy lifestyle habits, the social and affective fields must be present. Healthy social relationships increase the quality of life, without a doubt.

Maintaining healthy ties stimulates our emotional and mood state, reinforces our sense of belonging; it allows us to be through the relationship with others; exchange points of view and expand our minds. The human being ends up drawing himself through the reaffirmation or denial concerning others.

It is important to make space for social encounters, recreation with others, and healthy interaction.
