There are hard times in our life when we don’t feel like doing anything. As a result, we end up ruining our mental and physical health and sometimes go into depression. If you are going through this phase of your life, then give a read to this conversation. Why? Because this conversation has got solutions to all your problems. So let’s talk about some habits that you need to adapt to get back to the healthy “YOU”.
1. Cut Off 99% of Sugary Items
Taking care of your health is the first step to improving your lifestyle. If you are concerned about your mental health, then I recommend cutting off 99% sugary items from your everyday routine. I know it may sound very difficult but believe me, it is not impossible. If a person is determined about something, nothing is impossible for them.
Though It would be difficult in the beginning but trust me, you can do it! The reason why I am suggesting you stop consuming all the sugary items is because sugar loses its consumers’ heads. In simple words, it lowers down the blood pressure of a person. As a result, the person feels unwell and has difficulty breathing.
2. Start Working Out
Doing physical exercise for at least 45 minutes every day relieves stress and depression (if one has). Not only this, but it also keeps a person healthy and fit. So start doing exercise for only 5 minutes in the beginning when you don’t have much stamina.
As your body gets used to it, increase the exercise duration by adding five more minutes to it. Now keep repeating the process until you reach 45 minutes. And as you see your body getting in shape, you will start loving your life and have a positive feeling towards it! So make it a habit and see the positive changes in your personality.
3. Drink Plenty Of Water
The average quantity of water a human body needs is eight glasses a day. But unfortunately, in this busy era, we don’t drink the adequate water that our body needs to function properly. So increase your water intake to let your brain function even better. Once you do that, you will see a big change in the functioning of your brain. So make it a habit of carrying a one-litre water bottle with you everywhere you go.
4. Take Care Of Your Skin
Taking care of your skin can make you feel good about yourself. There are many ways in which you should take care of your skin to keep it healthy. I am writing down some skin care tips which you should make an everyday habit to keep your face looking good.
- Use A Facewash
If you use soap instead of facewash then it means you are not doing justice to your skin. If you want to keep your skin fresh and healthy, purchase some known brand’s face wash according to your skin type and use it twice a day. Facewash washes away all the dirt and dust that your skin.
- Applying Face Mask
Face masks also play an important role in keeping your skin healthy and fresh. If you are a young girl, then you should apply a normal face mask such as a mud mask. It is quite cheap and can do wonders to your skin! On the other hand, if you are an aged person, using a peel-off mask can help you tighten your skin a lot! So from today, make it a habit to apply a face mask at least once or twice a week.
- Use A Cleanser
Your skin absorbs dirt and dust throughout the day, which results in having blackheads and making your skin hard and dull. To keep your skin soft and glowy, buy a skin cleanser and make it a habit to use it every day. You just need to take a cotton ball, put some skin cleanser on it, and gently rub it onto your face and neck. You can also use it at the areas around your neck including the backside of your neck as these areas also absorb dirt and dust.
- Get Facial Treatment Every Month
Take out some time and get facial treatment from some reliable beauty salon every month. It will not only cleanse your skin deeply but also help you relax for an hour or two. If you can’t afford it, buy all the necessary facial products and give yourself a nice service at home.
- Change Your Pillowcase Weekly
There are many reasons why people have pimples all over their faces. One of the reasons is using the same pillowcase for a couple of weeks. So make it a habit to change your pillowcase every week to prevent your face from having pimples.
5. Purchasing New Clothes
According to a survey, buying new clothes makes women feel good about themselves. So if you are a woman, buying new clothes every month can improve your mood and make you feel positive about yourself. Dressing plays a very important role in helping a person relieve stress. So you should do it frequently to make yourself feel as a new you!
Talking about clothes, let me tell you that a shearling leather jacket womens is the best option to wear this winter. And there are many online stores out there that have these jackets these days. So go and check them out before they go out of stock as they are in high demand this season!
6. Write A Diary
In general, writing a diary is a good and healthy habit. And it is more beneficial when it comes to a person who is depressed or sad for some reason. Psychologists recommend their patients to write a diary whenever they feel like. So make it your habit to write down all your thoughts in a diary to make yourself stress-free. This is one of the most effective tips to heal yourself.
7. Play Sports
As we all know that playing sports keeps a person physically healthy, therefore, you should make it a habit to do this activity once a week. It will not only keep you active but also help you feel stress-free.
8. Do Travelling Often
Traveling is a very healthy and good habit. And if you love traveling then things will go in your favor. Whenever it is convenient for you, travel as much as you can to reduce stress and have a change in your life. And as much as you travel, you will get to meet new people and visit new places which will in turn make you want to live each day of your life fully!
9. Listen To Radio Shows

And no matter how busy you are, you can still listen to radio shows while doing activities like driving, cleaning your house, etc. So add this activity to your daily routine and enjoy listening to them!
10. Set Your Goals And Note Down Your Achievements
Set monthly and yearly goals, list them in your diary, and work hard to complete them. When you achieve them, write them down in the diary. It will motivate you to accomplish other goals and make you feel proud of yourself!
11. Meet A Friend
Having a long conversation with some of your friends is the best way to heal yourself! Go and meet a friend every week. And spend two or three hours with them, have a good conversation, and laugh together to get relief from daily stress. Conversing with friends is the best aid to treat any mental disease as per me!
12. Sing A Song
Singing is one of the best stress-relieving activities as per research. No matter how bad your vocals are, sing out loud and visualize all your worries going away from you! So don’t care about what people will say, and feel free to be yourself!
13. Dance With All Your Heart!
Dancing is not only a fun activity but is one of the best stress-relieving activities! So dance with all your heart and enjoy this moment! But don’t forget to warm up your body before executing this physical activity, or else you will end up having some muscle injury.
14. Do Cleaning Of Your House
Make it a daily habit to dust off things like bookshelves and other furniture in your house. This activity will instantly make you feel relieved from mental heaviness. This is another extremely effective stress-relieving physical activity to do. So give it a try and see the quick positive results!
15. Go Outside
Getting out of your comfort zone can be very useful for you to reduce stress and depression (if you have). So go out, sit in a park, see the greenery, read a book, and make new friends to make yourself feel good. If you can’t take out time to do this activity on a daily basis, make it a weekly habit.
16. Cook Food
Even if you don’t like to cook, DO IT. The reason for recommending this activity is that it motivates you to perform other endeavors in your everyday life. And as you finish cooking a dish, you will automatically feel motivated to have this thought that “YOU” have made this!
17. Write Down Your Qualities And Blessings
Write down your qualities and blessings in a diary after every day or two. It will motivate you to keep going. If possible, write each quality of yours on small chits and stick them all over your room. Whenever you see them, you will feel confident about yourself.
18. Read A Novel
It is a fact that the trend of reading books has almost gone in this era, but some people still do it with great interest. So, make it a habit to read novels from now on. Don’t have an interest in reading books? No worries, I just want you to start with two pages daily and after some days, you will automatically have the interest to read more.
Since we are talking about novels, there are many genres in novels such as mystery, suspense and romance. And each one of them takes their readers to another world! So start reading books by picking up some famous novel first, so that there won’t be any chance of having a boring one.
The Ending Lines
So these are some of the habits which you should adopt to add charm to your life. And I am pretty sure that you are going to act upon the instructions that I have given you in this conversation.
