No matter how much you want to be healthy, it feels like there isn’t much time for making healthy choices. But what if we tell you that it’s actually possible to be the busiest and healthiest version of yourself? While it’s easier said than done, a few simple changes can do an immense favour to your mind and body. Add some of these healthy habits to your day-to-day routine, and see how much better you will feel about your health, energy, mood, weight and more.


  1. Eat Your Meals At the Same Time Every Day

One of the major stressors in life is not having a regular routine. Even as simple as eating lunch or dinner an hour later than your usual meal time can spike up your cortisol level and disrupt your body’s ideal state. As much as possible, eat, exercise and sleep at the same time each day.

  1. ‘Close’ the Kitchen After 7 P.M.

The body needs a break from eating to repair its metabolic functions. Skipping the night-time fast and going for a midnight snack can increase blood fats and blood sugar, as well as speed up cell aging. To eradicate all these, mentally ‘close’ your kitchen after having your dinner, ideally seven in the evening.

  1. Open the Windows

The stagnant air in your home could be more polluted than the air hazy air of Singapore. There are so many possible sources of indoor pollution—candles, hairspray and fumes from cookware. While they are harmless in small amounts, the pollution they create together can raise blood pressure, harden arteries and turn up inflammation. Open the windows during milder days and turn on the fan to circulate the air and reduce indoor pollution levels.


  1. Avoid Driving in Slippers

Slippers and sandals can easily slip off and get stuck under the gas pedals and the brake. Driving is the most dangerous activity a man des on a daily basis. Why would you want to make it more dangerous by wearing the wrong footwear? The next time you get behind the wheel, wear shoes or go barefoot instead.

  1. Turn Off Your Tech

With all the social media buzz—from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more—it’s hard not to stay online 24/7. When at work, increase your productivity by putting away your phone or at least turning off the pop-up notifications. At home, relax your mind by entirely turning off your computer and tech devices. Instagram and Facebook will still be there tomorrow.

Start with the simplest and work your way up to the most challenging ones. And if some of these tips just seem impractical, you can completely ignore them and find something that works for you.
