Top 6 Health Hacks. Here you go:
1. Manage your sleep-wake time
Our body has an inbuilt mechanism of timing and all body functions work synchronously remembering that particular timing format. When we disrupt that timing, we are likely to suffer from its consequences. The result- sickness, not feeling well, some disorder and a number of hospital visits.
Sleep is the most crucial part of our body balance. Our body needs a rest of minimum 6-8 hours. It totally depends upon the type of labor you are doing, the way you are managing it. Sleep time must be maintained no matter what. If you skip your regular sleep time once or twice a month, your body does not feel any trouble. But if you are habituated to alter the timings or throw yourselves on bed only after the midnight begins, you are at lose guys. Your body doesn’t accept that positively.
It is not necessary to stay awake till late night hours. Try to manage your work and sleep early at the same time daily. This helps your body to get accustomed to the timing and relax itself nicely.
Waking up on the other hand is equally important. Sleep and wake are both inter related, if you sleep late at night, your body won’t feel like getting up and holding itself early in the morning. Now the late morning wake-up disturbs the whole new day that follows, right from you skipping your exercise, breakfast and many other activities. Your routine suffers, and so does your body.
The super helpful health hack is to stick to the saying, Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise and this really works man!!!!!!
Schedule your sleep-wake time wisely so that you get nice hours of sound sleep. No distractions while you sleep. Keep your phones and electronic gadgets away.
Surprisingly, you won’t need your alarm if your bed timings are accurate.
So, sleep early, wake up early, if you want to stay healthy.
2. Exercise without excuse
It has become quite common to put forward a bundle of excuses to skip from exercise. You can never go around or even near the health horizon if you are an exercise –lazy guy. You need to pull up your shoes right now! Just go and exercise. Exercise helps our whole body. It has millions of benefit all summing up to your health and you really need to think about this, if you are the one who backs –off in the name of exercise.

3. Chew your food properly: Each bite has its value
Like petrol to the car, like food to the body. Food is the fuel to our body. The normal functioning of our body is ensured when it gets proper food and nutrition. Food satisfies our appetite but when the same food not necessarily promote our health. It is because we need to make sure our food turns into energy. For this, we must chew our food properly, chew it nicely multiple times, let the saliva in your mouth mix thoroughly with the food. Do not gulp down the food that is not chewed down. It will only fill up your tummy and come out as poop. The nutrition that it has to deliver to our blood is absent when we roughly chew the food. I always heard my granny say this thing to me whenever I used to ate in hurry, “Chew every morsel at least 32 times properly”, and I would say” I will turn old like you, if I did that way!” and we laughed. But now I understand, she meant to chew the food many times before letting it into the food pipe.
This helps in the smooth functioning of our digestive organs. It is also said that our immunity lies in stomach. It is not exactly what it says. But the fact is the person who has smooth and good bowel movements are more immune as their gut absorb most of the nutrition from the food and this is the reason they have strong immune power. Such people do not fall sick often and remain healthy. This health hack is surely going to add up to your body’s health.
So, What have you decided, Chew your food nicely next time, right, Yeah??
