Did you know that we make health decisions every day? In most cases, we will do this unconsciously, without considering the health consequences or benefits. Every time we use French fries instead of apples instead of snacks, or when we decide not to use sleep and stay awake on TV at night, we make decisions that affect our health.
Experts point out that it is important to develop good habits, because habits will become our automatic behavior. The impact of daily decisions on our health is not immediately visible, but in the long run, the impact of small habits will continue to accumulate. From today to tomorrow, no one with obesity problem will become obese. After a week of exercise, no one will become muscular.
The good news is that we can make decisions based on our own habits. First, we need to understand the current habit and compare it with the habit we want to develop. This is also how you consciously make informed decisions about your health.
From a very young age, our parents taught us not to eat while watching TV. Now we know they are right. When we eat with a TV or smartphone, our attention is no longer on feeding. This action becomes automatic and unconscious, we don’t like the taste of it, and we don’t know how much we actually eat. It takes about 20 minutes for our brain to receive the signal that we are full. When we eat fast without knowing it, our brain only realizes that we are full. Therefore, eat slowly and consciously, chew and pay attention to the smell, taste and texture of the food. You will enjoy more food, which is good for your health in the long run.
Also, organize your kitchen to encourage healthy eating habits. When you shop, make a shopping list and stick to it. Don’t linger on the shelves with sweets and snacks. They will not attract you when you are not at home. Put healthy food in a prominent place, on the refrigerator shelf, at the eye position, and then put the washed fruit in a bowl that is often visible. When you arrange space to support healthy eating habits, it is much easier to stick to these habits.
Whenever we choose to watch another episode of the series before going to bed, we make a decision. This decision may lead to lack of sleep and tiredness the next day. For some people, this also means trying to wake up and activate higher levels of caffeine in the body and brain. Insomnia will reduce our work efficiency, we will also become irritable, easy to conflict with relatives. To avoid these situations, please be consistent and maintain sleep hygiene. Follow a sleep and wake-up schedule. Make sure you go to bed early enough so that you can enjoy at least seven hours of quality sleep. Avoid exposure to strong light and electronic equipment at least half an hour before going to bed. Develop a relaxing habit at bedtime, and you will be grateful when you sleep better and increase energy for all activities.
Due to our busy lifestyle and commitment to juggling, we sometimes ignore the signals our body sends to us to warn us of certain problems. Please pay attention to the importance of listening to the body and make a serious and regular medical checkup decision.

Every cell in our body needs water to function properly. Water can help us regulate body temperature, normalize blood pressure, stabilize heart rate and many other functions. Although we know that hydration is important, we often do not pay enough attention to it due to busyness or forgetfulness. The first step in deciding to drink more water is to obtain a reusable bottle that you will always use at work, at work, in the car or at home. Place the bottle in a visible location near you, it can also visually remind you to drink water. If you find it difficult to force yourself to drink water, you can install a fruit infuser on the bottle and add lemon, orange or fruit to flavor the water as needed. If you are particularly forgetful, associate drinking water with another habit. For example, every morning after waking up, drinking water after meals and after meals.
