Today, I will talk about a few things I am doing, which in my view are healthy. These things are realistic, and I won’t be sharing anything, that’s unique or unheard of. My primary objective with this blog is to tell people how small things can bring a major impact on life.
And, do not worry, this is not a guest blog. This blog is entirely written by your favourite health blogger, in association with me and powered by myself.
Let’s not focus much on the introduction as I don’t like lengthy intros, so let’s start with this blog.
1: Sleeping and waking up at a fixed time
This is something, I am doing, and I get a good sleep with it. I generally sleep at 10:30 pm (sometimes at 9:30) and wake up at 5 am. This helps my body to set a cycle, and it will start demanding sleep at a fixed time. However, many times I wake up at 4 am (if I sleep at 9:30) and I think, that’s even better as I am thinking to start doing something useful with that time. I don’t need an alarm or anything, as my mind now knows when to wake me up.
Also, I have noticed that, when I avoid my phone completely prior to sleep time, I get up full of energy. Drinking warm milk with turmeric is another helpful thing.
I have read a lot of blogs and people complain that they couldn’t sleep well. I suggest them to make a schedule and try to follow it. I promise you will see good results. I am not saying, you have to sleep and wake up at a similar time as mine, but set a routine for your body.
2: Started reading books
I have started reading books and I feel very peaceful with them. In the morning around 6:15-7:30 am, I dedicate my time to book reading. I feel, that’s a very peaceful time and I can give my undivided attention to the books. Earlier, I used to “waste” my time on the cellphone, and that drained me mentally. With books, I am finding peace and I feel very relaxed with it.
In the comments, tell me if you like to read books and can recommend me some.
3: Following a specific diet
I have never talked about any particular diet here, and I won’t do that. But, speaking specifically about myself, then yes, I follow a specific diet. I got help and got a diet made according to my goal, which is weight loss (at the moment). In this diet, I have to eat more protein, salads/fruits and less of everything else. I haven’t stopped eating anything. As people might remember from some of my previous blogs, I suggest eating everything in moderation. So yes, I am still doing that.
I never preferred junk food or street food, so not having that in my diet is okay for me. However, I can still eat many things, but that should be in moderation.
I have also purchased a food measuring machine. Some people may not be aware of this concept, but if you are following a diet with a certain goal in mind, you need to be very disciplined about it. For example, if I am supposed to have 80 gm paneer (in 1) meal, then it has to be 80 gm.
4: Going gym regularly
It’s been 4 months since I shared a blog about Why I am joining the gym……again? , so people can check it out. I am going to the gym regularly, and I have lost 9 kg (and still going). I have noticed a decent change in myself. My energy levels are very high, I am able to do a lot more with my body and I don’t get tired easily.
With this, I have increased my workout a lot more. As I have more energy, I really enjoy what I am doing. I want to see what more I can do. If you want to achieve any goal like me, don’t make excuses and start today. If you think, you want to lose some weight (or gain some), just make a plan and start working on it.
5: Writing and researching
I won’t say I am a terrific writer/blogger, But I enjoy it a lot. I started last year in August, and I love this a lot. This experience is great, because I research a lot for a specific topic, and for writing a blog I spend a great amount of time. Then making infographics and presenting my blog makes me very happy. I call this healthy as it’s fantastic for my mental health.
Last month I wasn’t able to share much due to 4 guest blogs and that disturbed me somewhat. That’s why I have decided not to share any guest blogs for the next 6 months or more. Unless my favourite blogger writes for FGW. For that, I have to muster enough courage to ask her about it.
Unhealthy things that I am doing
There are a few things, That I’m doing, and I am not proud of them.
I use my phone a lot, and I know this is not healthy. I am obsessed with checking WP again and again. I watch tons of videos on YT and I know these are unhealthy for me. I also see other apps (something personal).
Not getting good responses on my blog, also makes me upset. I work really hard on my blogs (we all do). I feel disrespected when any of my followers just like (without comment) or even ignore my blog completely. I am following many people, and I read and love their work, but in return, I am not getting the same response from them. When I see their names on my reader, I get upset. This is not good for my mental health.
I think that’s pretty much it for this blog. I haven’t mentioned anywhere that you have to follow these things, but you need to start getting involved in the things that can keep you healthy.
In the comments do tell me what healthy things you are doing. Even if it’s a small thing, let me know in the comments.
Until next time, Remember to smile.
