On April 7th, people from all over the world celebrate World Health Day to raise awareness on a wide range of important wellness topics. At freebeat, we celebrate World Health Day with our community and encourage healthy living for our happiness and wellbeing. This year's theme for World Health Day is "Protecting our planet Earth and our wellbeing."
Even though World Health Day is held once a year, you should look after your wellbeing all year round. It's not easy if you're busy or stressed, but finding easy ways to look after your overall health should be your top priority. Here are 3 ways to celebrate World Health Day 2022. Check it out!
Be More Active
An active lifestyle has many benefits including better sleep, greater health, and less stress. If you work at the office or spend all day sitting down, this can be detrimental to your health. Don't panic if you don't go to the gym often. Taking small steps every day, such as walking, can really make a difference to your wellbeing and planet Earth. Instead of driving, try walking to places or taking public transportation to reduce your carbon footprint. A little bit goes a long way!
One of the most clever things you can do is incorporate exercise into your daily routine and make it a habit so that you hardly notice that you are exercising. Here are a few suggestions: take a dance class, play tennis or start cycling to work. Read more here if you're unsure how to make working out into a routine.
Eat Well and Maintain a Healthy Diet
Now is more important than ever to be mindful of what you're eating and putting into your body. The key to your daily meals should consist of lean meats, proteins, yummy greens, nutritious grains, fruits, and vegetables. Yes, this will make your mind and body very happy. However, counting every calorie does not mean that you are eating a healthy and balanced diet. Instead, eat different nutritious foods and try to prepare all of your meals to save time and energy.

Learn When to Stop
Mental health is equally as important as physical health. Don't forget to take time to relax and unwind after a busy day at work. It is important to treat your body with kindness because your body is the fuel to keep your days moving. Some greats ideas for leisure time include a yoga class, indoor cycling, a bubble bath, or a simple walk in the park.
Moreover, you need to practice optimism and stop thinking negative thoughts. Brush them away!! Instead, try to do things you want in life from a different perspective and stop thinking like it's a chore. We're here for you.
