Who doesn’t wanna be healthy! Everyone does, right? But the fact that not many people try to work hard to remain fit and healthy is definitely is a sad thing. There are also a lot of people who work really hard towards their fitness. However, some things go unnoticed when it comes to health and fitness.
So, these are the health mistakes you didn’t know you are making
1. Skipping the flu shot
Skipping on the flu shots or not taking any kind of vaccine shot might be one of the dumbest things that you can do. This way you are not just risking your body but you are also risking the health of the people around you. Taking these vaccines will help you avoid getting in bed for weeks. You will remain healthy and immune from various kinds of viruses and bacteria.
2. Taking pills instead of a walk
Walks are very important for your body and a person needs to walk at least 3000-4000 steps in a day. There is no substitute for a walk and taking pills instead of walking is very foolish. Pills are only going to weaken your body and they can never benefit you like walking does. Walking also has many mental benefits.
3. Underestimating your health
People often make the mistake of ignoring their eating habits and then they underestimate the seriousness of being healthy. People start avoiding their weight gain until and unless they are not fitting into their old clothes. People neglect their food habits until and unless they face some serious problems. So, never make the mistake of taking these things for granted.
4. Consulting Google
Sure, Google has all the answers but when it comes to your health and fitness, it is not smart to depend on Google or some other social media apps. These places very often misguide you; always try to consult a medical practitioner or a specialist over these things. It is going to save your health and might avoid something fatal.
5. Depending on organic for everything
We sure agree that organic is one of the best things that you can feed to your body, but in the time of seriousness or some major health-related problems, depending only on organic things might be a stupid idea. Not all organic food has all the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs. There are so many other healthy ideas that you can adopt for your body rather than only looking for organic stuff.
6. Being fit doesn’t need a lot of time and gym
There is a huge myth that you can only remain fit if you are going to the gym or you spend a lot of time on your body. Well, this is so untrue. A health-conscious person can work out even at their home or a park. Also, 70% of your health depends upon the kind of food you give to your body and eating is not time consuming at all. So, just make sure you are eating right and working out regularly.
7. Not having a routine
How many of you have a routine? And how many of you have a routine but do not follow it? I bet a lot of you do not even have one. This is how you are spoiling yourself and your body. Having a routine trains your mind and your body to do a certain thing at a certain time and this way, you remain more productive. Having a routine really has an important role in keeping your body and your mind healthy.
8. Eating healthy doesn’t cost more
Now a lot of people think that remaining healthy is for the privileged. Here, they are wrong. Neither remaining healthy is for rich and privileged people nor eating healthy is. There are a lot of food items available in the market which are absolutely healthy and full of protein and other essential vitamins and minerals and at the same time they are pocket friendly. For example, stick to seasonal fruits and vegetables, have eggs for protein, etc.
9. Mental health matters
Having a healthy body is very good but having a healthy body with a healthy mind is a cherry on the top. Never make the mistake of ignoring your mental health as it is the most important aspect of your life. A healthy mind can only help to make a healthy and fit body. Practice yoga and meditation for having good mental health.
10. Diet drinks
There is no such thing called diet drinks and these things only harm your body, nothing else. If you are substituting your healthy smoothie or some fruit juice with a diet drink, then you are ruining your body. The amount of unhealthy stuff in these diet drinks is only going to make you fat and unfit.
11. Skipping Holidays
Yes, you heard it right. Holidays play a very important role in keeping you healthy. It not only rejuvenates your body but also relax your brain. It brings you out of the hectic routine that you have been following and your body charges itself so that you can get ready for the grind once again.
