Is hectic lifestyle affecting your health

In today’s fast-paced and hectic lifestyle life isn’t a walk in paradise anymore. Hectic lifestyle of today is affecting our health in more ways than we can imagine of. The main aim of people today is doing more but they forget that the whole point of success is to be able to do less and still maintain a quality lifestyle. Some of the ways in which our life is being affected as the busy lifestyle takes a toll in our lives:

Sleep Deprivation

We all have emergencies to greet and deadlines to meet, following which we are often sleep deprived. But, we must make time to get sufficient rest. The whole body starting from the central nervous system to the respiratory system gets disrupt if the body doesn’t get adequate sleep.

Lack of Physical Exercise

People that live in hilly areas have healthier bodies because the terrain calls for onerous exercise that could be intended or unintended. Exercise should be an integral part of your daily schedule. Hit the gym, practice yoga or put on your dancing shoes, take out time in whatever way the exercise fits in your schedule.

Skipping Meals

We all work hard to earn ‘bread and butter’ but how many of us eat that bread and butter in peace? We tend to skip breakfast that leads to stomach disorders, weight loss, hair fall, lethargy, obesity, weak eyesight and more. Many studies have linked breakfast to the most important meal of the day. It kick-starts your metabolism and helps you burn calories throughout the day.

Excess Stress and Anxiety

Stress is a part of our life. Things that happen around you and to you put stress on your body. Stress can be distinguished in two types:

  1. Positive Stress
  2. Negative Stress

 

Positive Stress: This stress helps in coaxing out the best performance out of people. Stress that enables us to give our best is termed as ‘positive stress’.

Negative Stress: Negative stress results from the poor attitude towards a stress or (being reactive), poor time management practices, family problems among others. This stress is the cause of many psychosomatic disorders. We must try to keep the stress at bay by taking the necessary steps as it’s the root cause of many illnesses.

Excessive Smoking and Drinking

Drinking is not bad as far as it’s done in control. But, excessive smoking and drinking harm the immune system and the reflexes. They both are the root cause of various complications ranging from mild to life-threatening. We must take care of our body and try to keep it healthy as it’s the home to our spirit.
