New seasons are the best time to introduce new routines and habits in life. The practices don’t need to be seasonal or weather specific. These are to spruce up your daily habits and improve a healthy lifestyle now and then.
We know that doing the same routine every day for a long time tends to get boring and monotonous. But this year, the pandemic and lockdown have made things much stressful. With no place to relax and enjoy after working from home on weekdays, people are getting more irritable. But categorizing life and doing new things continue to cheer up people and give them a healthy lifestyle. And what a good time to do these things with autumn just around the corner.
People don’t need to let 2020 end to make new resolutions to follow and do whenever they want. Keeping all that in mind, these are some examples to begin your day in a better and different manner. These are aimed to condition your mind and better concentrate on everyday goals rather than getting restless.
A small everyday detail
Beginning the day by placing the right foot first is an excellent detail to add in a routine. But some people are more of the ten steps to start the day. Whichever of the two a person is, many say that making and cleaning your bed is a good thing. According to many feng shui teachers, this practice gives people a perspective of creating order out of chaos. And this small activity reflects on the rest of the day.
Another thoughtful tool to improve attentiveness
Everyone knows many different uses of deep breaths and how they can be beneficial. So a regular practice of this exercise can alter and improve your entire day. Though it’s a slight similarity to meditation, these are two different things altogether. This technique generally helps with quick fixes for releasing pain, stress, sadness, anger, and also lethargy. Another good thing is that it can be done at any time required. Being such a beneficial tool, it is has a lot of available techniques, but the 4-7-8 is the most popular. This technique requires you to breathe in for 4 seconds, then hold it for 7 seconds before exhaling out for 8 seconds through the mouth.
The quick meditation
This year has been stressful for all, and most of the learning and exercise sessions are getting carried out online. But the typical hectic day or schedule can be done away with a quick meditation practice. This daily practice will help keep you calm and going for the rest of the day.
A few minutes of workout or yoga
Doing a heavy workout and following the routine might not be possible. But people can try doing a daily 5-10 min mixed workout or yoga. The practice not only helps their body from fatigue or pains but also energizes them. There are a lot of resources, influencers, and applications available online for daily short workouts.
This year is stressful and challenging, but people can still make something positive out of their days. So without waiting for a new year, start adding healthy habits to your daily life this coming autumn.
