When was the last time you stood up to make a smoothie out of fresh fruits in your fridge? For most people, it’s hard to remember because nobody likes to make these efforts, especially when they have a lot of work to do, babies to watch, or study to do. Most people are into eating junk food, and these days, food delivery apps have made these things a lot easier. Well, whatever reason you have to give, there is no justification to compromise your health for any reason. It is advised to add green vegetables and fruits to your diet.

You can Google easy cuisines that can be prepared at home from common vegetables at home. You can consider adding smoothies to your daily diet and trust me, it takes no longer than five minutes to prepare a smoothie that will keep you going for the whole day. You can take a food sensitivity test, to see how your immune system reacts to different foods.
Exercising is extremely important for your body to stay active and functional for the whole day. Due to Covid-19, most people still are locked up in their houses, working from home, sitting all day. Being in the same position is not good for your joints and bones. Your joints get stiff and it’s hard to move them when you get up. Also, exercise keeps your blood flow regulated which means that cells are being transported at a faster rate throughout the body, thus keeping your body all healthy. You should add exercise to your daily routine. If you are someone who doesn’t go out of the house much often, it’s good to know that there are millions of workout tutorials available on Youtube which you can do at home easily.
Take Care Of Your Mental Health
Your mental health is extremely important for your body to stay healthy. How? Let’s get this straight, your brain is the control center of your body which initiates every process going on inside the body. How can you expect your body to work all fine when the center point, the brain, is not healthy?
People these days are not even aware of what exactly mental health is and how important it is. This is the reason why every year, millions of people fall victim to anxiety and depression. If you, at any point, feel like your mind is getting overburdened with work, or whatever going on around you, take a break! Disconnect yourself from negative energy, get a vacation, talk to your friends and family, and be open with them! Let your heart out! Trust me, it really helps to relieve the pressure on the brain. Mental and physical health, both are companions, so make sure you never set them apart, because both are dependent on one another.
