7 Healthy Habits to Adopt in Your Twenties
The trial and error period of our life also known as the 20’s is the one that impacts our future most crucially. The habits you develop in this decade of your life, in the 20’s, decide how well you will age. While living healthy is not our priority in this decade, here are a few healthy habits to adopt in your twenties for a better lifestyle:
Get 7-8 hours of sleep:
Being in my early twenties myself, I know very well, that our nights do not end before 4 a.m. and sleeping halfway through the day isn’t possible, so we cut back on sleep but do not cut back on the fun.
While the fun lasts, you won’t notice how vulnerable the lack of sleep leaves your body, weakening it.
Not to forget those eye bags that make you look like a zombie. Trust me, no one likes them, not even your better half. Create a sleep routine and get at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Start your day fresh, and make the most of it. Remember, sleeping more is as dangerous as sleeping less, so, don’t risk it.
Care for Your Skin:
Beauty might not be your strong suite but taking care of your skin should be your priority. You don’t have to be a beauty expert to take care of your skin. Just put on the sunscreen when you go out in the sun, don’t forget to moisturise in winters, don’t pop those zits and don’t ignore strange marks. All fun and no care makes Jack an Ugly boy.
Cut Back On Sugars
Gaining weight is the easiest thing in this world, and Sugars are the primary source of it. To cut back on sugars, avoid your excessive sugar intake in the form of aerated soft drinks, cereals with added sugars, etc. Why? Excessive sugar intake can cause disease as dangerous as diabetes along with making you obese and even heart diseases. That should be reason enough to ditch your sweet tooth in your twenties, isn’t it?
Set and Follow an Exercise Routine:
Staying fit is the utmost necessity to live a happier and a longer life. Go to the gym and lose those extra pounds. If you’re not comfortable or can’t go to the gym, you can try Yoga or Zumba; I hear they are much more fun. Set a routine aimed at your fitness goal and follow it religiously at least four days a week. Give yourself a break on Sunday. Trust me; it’s worth it.
Be one with Nature:
Nature offers immense beauty, for free! Leave your gadgets behind and spend a day with nature. Go to a park or see the sunset, get a taste of the fresh air and relax. Let all the stress go away. It is the best therapy that there is.
Look after your body:
Your body is your heaven, and if you take it for granted, the horror it’ll leave you with will be too horrible even to imagine. The adrenaline in your body is bound to be high in this decade, but that doesn’t mean you put your body at risk for the sake of that momentary adventure that might or might not result in a good memory. Don’t let your body scar, don’t go crazy over scary selfies. Go for a morning walk, go hiking, trekking, give your bones enough movement to make them stronger.
Make A ‘Things Not To Do List.’
This ‘Things NOT TO DO list’ should contain all the things that you do that make you unproductive. To make the most of your time and talent, this is an absolute requirement. Put everything on the list that doesn’t result in making your productive. For example, binge watching your favourite shows, playing games on your PS or PC, spending time on social media, etc.
So, these are seven healthy habits to adopt in your twenties to make your coming decades better and beautiful. Pin it:
