ARE YOUR HABITS BRINGING YOU RELIEF?
- Share on
Any action or behaviour you engage in your daily activities is considered a habit, from waking up early to having lunch on time or doing some daily work.
A few habits can promote mental and physical health while some may have a negative impact on your everyday life. By pushing yourself with a little effort, it is possible to change habits and transform them into healthier ones.
Quiet often people are reminded to take care of themselves. Yet it is common for people to react to stressful situations.
At such times what people do is grab their favourite piece of chocolate, a cup of caffeine, watch tv shows or turn towards cigarettes or alcohol. This is when one goes in the wrong direction.
We all must gather the courage to face such situations and avoid them from becoming habits. Once such things turn into habits it is really difficult to break them. Here are a few healthy habits to treat yourself:
1. Eating Habits
• People might often neglect eating habits and may consume less nutritious food but they might not know that these habits will lead to having an impact on their physical as well as mental health. Some healthy eating habits are as follows:
• Avoid a lot of junk food.
• Consume healthy fruits as snacks during work instead of grabbing junk/street food.
• Have meals on time and avoid skipping them.
2. Productive habits
• When a person chooses to be productive it helps him manage his work better and complete it on time and reach his goals.
• Making a to-do-list for completing tasks
• Concentrating on important work
• Avoiding distractions
• Trying best to complete the difficult tasks
3. Communication habits
Habits that improve your relationship with friends, family, and colleagues are as follows:
• During a conversation, we must patiently listen to others. Even if we don't agree we must wait for our turn to speak.
• Making eye contact
• Offering smiles and gestures during a conversation
4. Preventive habits
It is always said “Prevention is better than cure” There are many small habits that may promote a healthier life by biding away unwanted health problems.
• Brushing your teeth twice a day can prevent cavities
• Washing hands before eating can prevent entering germs through food
• Applying sunscreen daily before going out can reduce the risk of sunburn and skin cancer.
How can habits benefit you?
When we repeatedly perform some tasks we are more likely to stick to them. Similarly, if a habit benefits your life, you get good outcomes from it and it motivates you to follow it.
For example: If you are preparing for a dance performance. Making a habit of practicing a few steps daily can make your final performance much better. From this, you come to know that you get motivated to stick with a new habit and keep working towards your goal.
It is essential to know which habits benefit you and which cause harm or trouble. You must find new ways to enjoy new healthy habits. At the same time, you must get rid of things that may add stress to your life. Making proper changes to your daily habits could be helpful in making you feel better. Also, remember that anything which is fruitful doesn't materialize overnight, you need to be patient and consistent.
Habits play a significant role in various aspects of our life. It is always possible to make changes and develop positive habits. The key is to have patience throughout the process because developing a habit and making it regular can take time but in the end, it is surely going to bring you relief.
