I notice from my parents and their friends that nowadays many adults are really into sports and sports communities like running groups, cycling groups and even triathlon. It’s as if it’s a trend to exercise during the weekends as a group, go on sport outings, or have simple morning exercise routines during the weekdays. I am really impressed by how much dedication they can put into sports, and sometimes it got me thinking about how at a younger state as a 2, I should be able to maintain a healthy sports routine like that as well. Although I do some exercise in a week, whether yoga (following a YouTube video) or some thai boxing, I have never actually made one a hobby or passion. I realise, however, that I should start making exercise a hobby and do more of it, because eventually once you start doing it more often, you’ll learn to enjoy it even more and see the difference it can bring in your bodies.
Aside from exercise, I am well aware of the fact that what we eat now affects us in the future. Maintaining a healthy diet from now can result to improved overall health, mood and minimise the risk of sicknesses in the future. Let’s remind ourselves to eat more vegetables and fruits, and minimise the intake of high fat and sugary food.
Sleeping is also a very important thing that we should pay attention to and not underestimate. Lots of people tend to sacrifice their sleeping time to do work or go on TV series marathons but actually getting enough sleep is just as important as exercising or eating healthy. One should at least get 6 to 7 hours of sleep in a day to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
So, let’s start living healthier and make sure to eat right, do some exercise and make sure to get enough sleep.
