You may not pay much heed to your general lifestyle choices but these affect your health and relationships to a great extent. Right from your sitting posture, your office timings to your alcohol consumption, smoking habits and so on, everything has its own impact on your life. Check out why is it important to be careful while making these lifestyle choices, so that you don’t have to repent later.
Alcohol Consumption: Drinking has become more of a status symbol these days but it’s up to you to decide how much alcohol you need to consume in a day so that it does not affect your social behavior. Excessive alcohol consumption affects your body organs and hampers your sexual performance too.
Smoking Habits: Smoking cigarettes everyday is an easy way to reduce years from your life. And are you sure you want to be a candidate for terrible suffering due to lung cancer? You must not make smoking an addiction, which is tough to quit because it not only affects your lungs and heart but also affect the health of others who become victims of passive smoking.
Office Timings: Some of you might love to do graveyard shifts whereby you spend the late night hours in office, reach home late, sleep during the day and then again go to office the next evening. Such a lifestyle hampers your personal growth and you tend to detach yourself from your social circle.
Sitting Postures: The way you sit during the daytime has a lot to do with your overall health. If you keep sitting upright for several hours without a break, it will affect your spine and give you cervical problems. It’s suggested that you take breaks after small intervals, get up from your seat and walk around and stretch, so that you are not sitting in the same posture for more than an hour.
Sleeping Hours: Your time to go off to sleep and get up in the morning is a big factor, which you may not consider much. If you are not able to have a sound sleep in the night, it would affect your eyesight, your mood, make you feel fatigued all through the day and you will fail to perform well at work. Therefore, you are advised to have proper sleeping time, so that you manage to get at least 6 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Screen Time: It’s understandable that in today’s internet driven generation; most of your time is spent in front of your computer or laptop screens doing your office work. Moreover, you would spend several hours watching television, which again is harmful for your eyes. It’s best to reduce this screen time and if you can wear protective spectacles, it would help you in the long run.
Eating Patterns: You love to eat but you don’t really believe in healthy eating. Gorging on fast food is a way of life these days but you often forget the harm it does to your health. Make it a point to have home cooked food as much as possible and avoid junk meals.
While making these lifestyle choices, it doesn’t really matter whether you are a male or a female. Bad habits not only affect your social, professional and personal relationships but are a leading cause of serious health problems like obesity, heart disease, diabetes and erectile dysfunction among others. All it takes is a little discipline to make and stick to the right decisions about your lifestyle; and not only prolong your life but live a healthier and happier life on all fronts.
