All You Need to Know About World Health Day 2020by Swati Khandelwal Health And Fitness Writer At FITPAS
World Health Day has been celebrated for 7 decades to raise awareness about the importance of health and wellbeing. The event is organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) annually to spread awareness on specific health topics. Earlier, World Health Day has covered topics like food safety, depression, and diabetes among others.
The World Health Day 2020 is all about nurses and midwives and all the other health professionals who are working to prevent coronavirus as well as helping those who are affected. The goals include appreciating these professionals as well as boosting their careers in addition to increasing support for them.
Wondering how you can support them? While appreciation and charity are the obvious ways, you should incorporate a healthy lifestyle to stay healthy. Stepping out is prohibited but working out at home is not. Try FITCOACH for dynamic workout recommendations based on your needs and preferences.
How to Stay Healthy
Health and wellness is an eternal thing. It would not work if you care for your health one month and then take a break next month. If you don’t know where to begin or are busy or stressed, start small. Health should be your priority and start taking small steps towards a healthy lifestyle. Stay active and eat well.
- Stay active
On a scale of 1-10, how active are you? If you sit on a chair and work in front of a desktop or laptop, the answer is most probably below 5. And we guess you know that it is not good for your health. A decade or two of sedentary life doubles your risk for early mortality. It doesn’t mean that you have to quit your job, you just have to make some changes in your life.
There’s no need to worry if you like working out at the gym. You can use your body weight and workout just the same at home. You do not necessarily need the equipment found at gyms. You can checkout workouts online and do them at home. 150-300 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise every week is enough for your body to function properly.
- Eat healthy foods
The idea is to eat the right foods, not less. A balanced diet will do it for you. You are what you eat – if you eat unhealthy foods, you will be unhealthy and at a higher risk of health problems like diabetes, stroke, etc.
Your diet should include foods that supply a wide variety of nutrients. Have more veggies, fruits, grains, lean meats, seafood, eggs, and healthy oils. Apart from these, you should avoid eating saturated fats, trans fats, added sugars, and sodium. Stay away from high-sugar foods, processed foods, and avoid the extra salt on your meals. Finally, do not deep fry your food.
- Limit alcohol and smoking
Smoking and alcohol consumption affect your immunity. While alcohol is alright occasionally, it is even advisable in moderate quantities, you should never overdo it. Smoking should be avoided completely. While it might not be possible for regulars, you should try to reduce your consumption.
- Learn about yourself
Since you have a lot of time these days, learn about your DNA ancestry, body type, the effect of age on health to be informed on what works for you and what doesn’t.
