7 Healthy Habits to Regain a Healthier Life

In Hong Kong, we are living in a world filled with unbreakable commitments, stressful encounters, and unhealthy lifestyles. However, to quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, "The first wealth is health."

With all the noise out there to take in, we picked seven proven ways for you to gain control of a more healthier life: 

  • Try Yoga
  • Say goodbye to Caffeine
  • Give juicing a go
  • Cut down on tech
  • Stop people pleasing
  • Get creative
  • Appreciation

Try Yoga

If you’ve never tried yoga before, don’t worry – there are plenty of classes for beginners and you can watch easy videos online to get you started. It’s a safe and effective way to increase your physical activity that focuses on strength, flexibility and balance.

NHS Choices notes the evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain – depression and stress. It’s also popular with people with arthritis to improve flexibility, strength and mobility.

Moby created a list of awesome ambient music just for yoga, and the best part is, it’s totally free to download the entire list of music. Feel free to check that out.

Go easy on caffeine

Personally, the only thing that gets me out of bed is the good old coffee trick. Perfect 100 degrees of steamy boiling water brewing that lovely Geisha in a gigantic red Tim Hortons mug, serving with a shot of 2% milk and a spoonful of Canada's best windflower honey.

However, according to researches, too much caffeine a day might cause insomnia, nervousness, restlessness, irritability, an upset stomach, a fast heartbeat and even muscle tremors.

You might want to go easy on the coffee instead of drowning yourself, deep diving into a sea of caffeine.

Juice it up

Trying to fit five portions of fruit and vegetables into your diet can be a struggle sometimes – and with recent suggestions we should actually aim for 10 portions which makes the task even more difficult. Luckily, juicing offers a healthy solution to add more valuable nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants into your diet.

Vouchercloud suggest having a juice in addition to your normal diet, or in replacement of a meal – such a carb-heavy breakfast – to help you to hit your fruit and veg target easily. Cooking fruit and vegetables can destroy some of the great enzymes, nutrients and antioxidants but juicing the raw ingredients doesn’t have the same effect.

What’s more, the process of juicing extracts insoluble fiber, meaning it’s easy on the digestive track and nutrients are better absorbed by your stomach.

Here is my favorite juice recipe: Carrot-apple juice. The sweetness of apples and the flavor of bugs bunny's favorite snacks goes hand-in-hand, plus it's Martha Stewart's recipe so what's not to like.

Cut down on Tech

You can't put a price tag on health, but neither likes and loves on the recent update you've posted on Facebook with your S/O on your way to Disneyland.

“All this digital technology — this explosion we’ve all seen in our hands — is it doing more harm than good?”

Stay untethered for half a day, swim in the pool of thoughts which you have been racking up since your last alone time.

Stop people pleasing

Lookout for yourself. Just be, you.

Get creative

Being creative might sound like a nightmare to a lot of us, which the only creative thing we could come up with a gazillion different ways of asking the same question, "how do I even start." or, "what am I suppose to do now."

Part of being creative is the mindset of taking things "as it goes." Not to be "trippin' balls" by how many mistakes one can make, or what sorts of Kraken have been summoned from the bottom of the creative pit, but to embrace the happy, calmful mind flows that appreciates nothing but peacefulness.

Enjoy the randomness, the spontaneous, the uncontrollable. Be there for nothing else but yourself.

Appreciation

“When people feel appreciated, they are on top of their game; they are resilient, loyal, and generally fun to be around.”

Appreciation brings out the best out of everyone, instead of focusing on (just don’t dwell on the mistake and prioritize on improving the situation) mistakes that had been made, why not concentrate on those that are plausible and positive.

Plus, it’s one less thing to be angry about, and being possessed by fury is nothing but a tiring experience. It drains the energy away from you and people around you, creating a vicious cycle that will eventually come haunting you in your darkest days.

It will take a while before greatness comes

The great Rome was not built in one day, so as a healthy life. The key to a healthy life depends on the healthy mindset with love and supportive thoughts, a consistent schedule of healthy exercise and a healthy diet with balanced ingestion of all the desirable nutrition, and the most important are to follow the plan.

Persistence is the key.
