Working towards a healthy lifestyle can seem daunting but it all boils down to getting started and taking those tiny steps towards your goals.
At BYJU’S, we believe that small actions can add up to a big change. In line with this, the February Mantra of the Month focused on some small steps you can take today, to become a healthier, happier YOU!
Open yourself up to new experiences and opportunities.
Try, fail, learn – step out of your comfort zone and watch your life change for good.
Practice saying NO to things you cannot or don’t want to do.
It isn’t easy but once you master it, you’ll find yourself more focused on things that really add value to your life.
Turn your ordinary walks into ‘awe walks’ – be mindful of small things around you during your walk like a blooming flower, the chirping birds, clouds in the sky etc.
Consciously observe these little wonders and amplify the mental health benefits of your stroll.
Make a green friend to improve your emotional and mental wellbeing.
Not only do they look beautiful, they also help in boosting productivity and creativity.
It’s proven that colours have an impact on mood.
So paint your room with a bright, energising colour of your choice.
Keep a tab on how exposure to social media makes you feel.
Does it make you happy or is it overwhelming? Cut down if it affects your mood adversely.
Preventive health checkups can help detect problems even before they start.
So get proactive and schedule them!
A little skincare routine can go a long way in brightening up your day!
Pamper yourself by taking care of your skin and enjoy that extra boost to your confidence.
Healthy snacking is key to a healthy body.
Be smart and plan your snacks in advance, so you don’t end up binge eating or eating unhealthy snacks at odd hours.
To-do lists can really set you up for success but don’t forget to celebrate your achievements.
Make a ta-da list for things you have accomplished, for that sense of pride.
And there you have it! A few simple steps for you to start your journey towards a healthy and happy life.
