Leading a lifestyle that translates into good health means not just eating right, but also balancing your caloric intake with adequate exercise. Let us take a look at some quick tips by which you can get your health in order and stay clear from lifestyle diseases and other health concerns.

Eat healthy

Make sure your diet is a balanced one, consisting of all the food groups. Equally important is colour, so fill up your plate with brightly coloured fruits and vegetables that are high on antioxidants, minerals and other goodness that is essential for the body. Go low on carbs, fatty food and don’t indulge your sweet tooth excessively, and you will have a good thing going.

Walk on… and on!

This is one form of exercise that can never go out of style. Whatever be your age or health constraints, you can aim at getting fitter by incorporating a brisk walk into your daily routine, be it early in the morning or at bedtime.

Workout sessions

With the emphasis on fitness being as much as it is today (and which is only a good thing!), most of us do tend to include freehand workout sessions as part of our exercise regimen. So, whether it is dips, lunges or push-ups, pick the routine that works best for you, or mix it up to keep it interesting and stay motivated.

Stay positive

Stress is another factor that indirectly takes a toll on our systems. Hence, staying calm and trying to stay as positive and stress-free as possible will also translate into a healthy mind and body. Do not bring work home with you on weekends, for instance, and devote as much time as you can to yourself; maybe even enjoy a relaxed evening with your loved ones.
Now that you know what to do (and not!), checking these quick tips and tricks off when you plan your health and fitness routine should see you on your way to good health. But remember, while these are changes you can make to your lifestyle, you also need to keep in mind that at some point, should a health emergency arise, you should be well prepared.

Think healthy!

Of course, no one wants to fall ill, and given the rapidly escalating medical costs today, it is probably not even affordable to fall sick! And if unfortunately, your illness requires hospitalisation, then you’re looking at additional costs – not just related to the hospital and possibly surgical costs, but also ancillary medical expenses. It is only prudent then, to avail of a robust, comprehensive health insurance plan from a reputed health insurance provider such as Aditya Birla Health Insurance. With health plans that centre around the individual, you can select one that suits your requirements the best, and ensure that whatever be the medical contingency, your loved ones are taken care of, financially.

Unique to their range of Activ Health plans are HealthReturnsTM, which reward you for staying healthy. How it works is pretty simple – know your health, work regularly on improving it, and get rewarded. You gain Active DayzTM by undertaking certain forms of exercise such as cycling or working out at a fitness centre. On collecting 13 Active DayzTM a month, you can earn back 30 percent of the annual policy premium as HealthReturnsTM. Further, there is also a special Chronic Management Programme to help you stay healthy by managing any conditions you may have. Staying healthy has just been made more rewarding with the Activ Health plans!

If you are wondering whether this is the right time to avail of health insurance, remember that you can never protect yourself and your family either too early, or too late. After all, sehat hai, toh zindagi behad hai. To know more, log on to https://www.adityabirlahealth.com, and give yourself and your loved ones a healthy start!
