While it is vital you follow social distancing advice, and wash your hands, there is a lot more to take on board. You need to stay happy and healthy at home, and we have some tips for you.
A balanced diet is essential right now
Most people know a good diet is the base of a healthy lifestyle. This is the case at any time, but right now, it is fundamental. You don’t need to follow a specific diet, and you don’t have to forbid yourself from eating certain foods, but you should try to find balance, and enjoy certain things in moderation.
It will be helpful to eat foods which contain complex carbohydrates. This includes whole grains, vegetables and fruit. By doing so, you offer sustenance to your mind and body, as well as releasing energy consistently throughout the day. This will help you to avoid spikes and troughs in your mood.
It is also important to enjoy green vegetables, with broccoli and spinach being great examples of food to add to your diet. You should also consider beetroot, poultry, fish, eggs and beans. These all contain Vitamin B, which helps you to feel more optimistic and positive.
Try to create a healthy sleep pattern
With so many people working from home, and not having to commute, it is easy to see why a lot of people will stay up later. However, you should try to get as much sleep as you can, and it will be helpful if you can maintain a regular schedule.
There have been numerous studies indicating sleep deprivation causes health problems. Also, a lack of sleep increases the likelihood a person will develop chronic health conditions. A good plan of action is to get up, get washed and dressed, open a window in your bedroom to freshen the room, avoid caffeine late at night and be active during the day.
It helps to be active
Being active will assist you in developing a sleep pattern, and it helps many people feel better about themselves. The trick is to find an activity that you enjoy because you will be more likely to maintain a regular workout schedule.
