2020 was a year where our lives were turned upside down. The new year signals a good start to turn it around.
It’s important to know that your health and well-being will depend on your habits. Remember that getting into a new habit not only takes time but requires dedication as well. Do what will work for you! Below are some suggestions to start off the year.
1. Get a good night’s sleep
The pandemic may have disrupted our day-to-day routine including our sleep schedule but establishing regular sleeping hours can get you back on track.
Don’t underestimate what a good night’s sleep can do to our body. Not only does it give us energy to tackle a new day but it also significantly lowers our stress levels
TIP: Avoid taking caffeine after lunchtime. Caffeine is known to upset the body’s ability to balance sleep and wakefulness.
2. Keep your workspace clutter-free
You’ve probably heard this so many times, “a cluttered desk gets less work done.”
Since we are spending a lot of time at home, it’s important to keep a clean desk as clutter takes away our ability to focus, making us less productive.
TIP: Fix your workstation at the end of each working day.
3. Do a social media detox every now and then
If you need to set limits on your social media use, go ahead. You may start with not bringing any of your gadgets with you to your bedroom and turning it off instead to be retrieved the next day.
When we don’t take tabs at how long we consume social media, it can be detrimental to our mental health.
TIP: Set a time dedicated for social media browsing.
4. Eat healthy and take supplements
Vitamin C supplementation plays a significant role in keeping our body free from illnesses that weaken our immune system.
Calcium-Cee is a non-acidic, high-absorption Vitamin C supplement that incorporates Calcium, the mineral that is essential for bone health and the perfect complement to the collagen-building properties of Vitamin C. Each tablet contains 605.3mg Calcium Ascorbate equivalent to 500mg Ascorbic Acid. Calcium-Cee is available at Watsons, Rose Pharmacy, Mercury Drug and Merry Mart for more or less Php 8.00 per tablet.
TIP: Take your supplements after breakfast so you would not forget.
Change starts even with small yet consistent steps and keeping at these habits can go a long way in helping you be on track with your health goals this 2021.
