Here are a few ways to try and maintain your health while following a busy schedule:
1) You’re only human:
Do not push past your human limitations. You’ll falter in all your daily goals if you don’t rest sufficiently. There is always so much that you can do, and to exceed that is putting your health at risk. Rest; give yourself breaks in between work and all your daily activities. Put an adequate leisure period in your daily schedule.
2) Eat healthy:
If take aways and dine outs are totally necessary considering your schedule, avoid junk food, fried edibles and processed/synthetic meat, unhealthy fizzy drinks and excess sugar. Although it’s best to eat clean, healthy home made organic food, but if it is inevitable, at least be honest to yourself and eat healthy outside.
3) Mild Exercise:
If a proper gym routine is not possible, try to fit in mild exercises to keep a healthy heart, such as walking short distances instead of driving or taking the bus. That would keep your blood pressure in check and walks are also extremely therapeutic. You can multitask while you walk, like make that important call, or listen to your academic lecture, so it’s not wasting your work hours entirely.
4) Take it easy:
Avoid stress. Stress is everything that is wrong with the world these days. Avoid stressful thinking and stay away from pessimism. Giving an optimistic approach to matters is not only healthy; it is also a much more productive way of figuring out better solutions to your problems.
Make a schedule and put in sufficient sleeping hours. Sleeplessness destroys your brain functions, causes blood pressure imbalances and fatigue that’s both muscular and psychological. So sleep ample amount of hours at night, or at the right times, to keep your mind and body functioning in their prime.
6) Avoid Unhealthy stress relieving tactics:
Smoking, excessive caffeine; coffee, tea and other health adversaries, destroy your immune system, digestion, blood flow, processing capabilities and create temper issues, insomnia, fatigue and a thousand other health issues. Stop or avoid smoking as much as you can, especially during stressful work. You don’t need it. Your mind is playing tricks on you. It does not resolve anything at all!
7) Keep tabs on your vitals:
Keep a regular check on your vitals; blood pressure, blood sugar, platelet count (once a while) and even if you do not deem it necessary, get a proper blood test done every few months to avoid any complications and do not let go of any seemingly little anomaly that may appear. Consult your physician immediately.
So to sum up, follow these healthy habits and make it a part of your lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle will go a long way in keeping your health at optimal level. Eat healthy, eat on time, sleep, and give yourself a break!
