Health, Wellness & You: Tips for a Healthy Home

In today’s fast-paced world, health and wellness have taken center stage. We are bombarded with countless tips and tricks promising a healthier lifestyle and improved well-being. However, it’s important to understand the distinction between health and wellness before embarking on this quest.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, extending beyond the mere absence of disease or infirmity. On the other hand, the National Wellness Institute describes wellness as an active process where individuals become aware of and make choices toward a more successful existence. Health is influenced by various factors such as social, economic, and physical environments, as well as personal behavior. Wellness, however, focuses on the lifestyle choices we make to enhance our overall well-being.

The demands of our busy urban lives often hinder our ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Choices such as skipping breakfast, consuming fast food, leading sedentary lives, battling anxiety, and experiencing erratic sleep patterns have negative impacts on our overall health and well-being. It’s essential for us to recharge both our bodies and minds and embrace a lifestyle that nurtures our physical, mental, emotional, and social growth. At Prescon, our homes offer a serene environment combining urban living with nature, providing the perfect setting to unwind and rejuvenate. For the urban citizen spending the better part of their day indoors, here are a few simple ways to ensure we remain at our best.

Start Your Day on the Right Foot

Establishing a morning routine helps regulate our circadian rhythm and boosts our confidence. The age-old adage of “early to bed and early to rise” still holds true. Witnessing the sunrise, engaging in early morning yoga, breathing in fresh air, appreciating nature’s beauty, meditating amidst the melodious chirping of birds, enjoying a protein-rich breakfast, and staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water sets the tone for a productive day.

You are What You Eat

A consistent schedule should be complemented by a well-balanced diet. Even in our fast-paced culture, small steps can be taken to ensure a nutritious intake. Incorporate an ample amount of fruits into your daily diet, prioritize greens, monitor fat and calorie consumption, stay hydrated, and opt for organic options whenever possible. Following a personalized diet plan can be a great starting point.

Make the Most of Your Indoors

Urban citizens spend more time indoors whether at the office or at home, than they do outside. Further, with Work From Home being a more common option now, we must make the most of our indoor space. Develop a hobby, indulge in reading that long-awaited book, explore your artistic side with colors, dance to your heart’s content, bake your favorite cake, unleash your inner chef, engage in a game of chess, enjoy a karaoke session, or connect digitally with friends and family. There are countless mindful and simple lifestyle choices that can help maintain and improve our mental, emotional, and physical health.

Our health and well-being are invaluable assets. There has never been a better time to cultivate a lifestyle that not only enhances our own health and well-being but also positively influences those around us. And, as with all good things, it all begins at home. A home surrounded by nature yet offering the modern luxuries of city life — a home by Prescon.
