Being healthy means having your physical, mental and social well-being in sync with each other. It is not about the absence of any disease or medical problem. That being said, a person can be heavy or thin but still be healthy. When we talk about health, it is the overall functioning of the body and mind, so your size, weight and fit of clothes should not define your health.
Every year on 7th April, World Health Day is celebrated with an aim to bring awareness about the current theme set by the WHO. The theme for 2021 is ‘building a fairer and healthier world for everyone. The thought behind it is a call to action to eliminate all health inequalities that have arisen during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Keeping the 2021 theme in mind, let’s take a look at the list of ways you as a responsible individual can celebrate World Health Day wisely.
Indulge in Healthy Desserts
Who said to be healthy you need to cut off from all the worldly delicacies. Enjoy eating your favourite desserts by removing the unhealthy aspects for better options. You never know, they might just end up tasting a lot better.
Send Fruit Hampers
World Health Day is not just about implementing healthy habits for one day, it’s a regular cycle. This day also involves motivating your loved ones to opt for better food habits. Thus, sending fresh fruit hampers to their homes will be a good start of a long journey.
Buy Premium Dry Fruits
Whether you buy good quality dry fruits for yourself or others, they are a great way to commence better dietary habits. Dry fruits are known to contain rich vitamins and proteins that help in building immunity. Eating almonds also helps in improving memory.
Fix Exercise Routine
Don’t exercise only on World Health day, rather make a time table with a regular fitness routine. Fix your workout session based on your current physical abilities and stamina along with a clear goal of what you want to achieve. Physical exercise not only helps in physical stability but mental as well.
Gift Health Tracking Devices
Gift yourself or your dear one a health tracking device that tells you how you are faring. Make this an early birthday or anniversary gift that helps your close ones stay fit. With a plethora of technological devices like smartwatches and phones guiding you, your health will surely be in the right hands.
Eat Home Cooked Meals
Who does not love to binge on junk food! However, to be fit you need to avoid the restaurant and processed foods and opt for a healthier option. Start cooking meals and snacks at home to help yourself get rid of unhealthy cravings. Once you cook your food, you will see a drastic change in your health and the size of your wallet.
Order Indoor Plants
After dogs, plants should be a man’s best friend. Order indoor plants like Money plant, Sansevieria, Hawthoria, Jade plants and many more to avail their benefits. These plants not only purify the air but help in reducing stress, give you a purpose and bring calmness to your life. Order these plants for those friends and family members who have been having a tough time lately.
With every year, the number of readers falls, which leads to a pool of people with poor knowledge and imagination. Novels are a unique world in itself, that makes you imagine every word you read. Reading can drastically help improve your mental stance and bring a sense of peace and fulfilment.
We are all addicted to our phone, aimlessly scrolling down the social media feed. Break this awful habit by installing some mind-boggling and brain-powering games. Simple games like Sudoku, crosswords and scrabble can do wonders to sharp your brain.
Make sure that you implement these activities in your daily schedule and encourage your loved ones to do the same. Keep in mind that health is wealth, for, without health, you can lose everything in the blink of an eye.
