Keep stress away by taking frequent breaks during work. Plan work in advance so that deadlines and meetings do not leave you hassled.
Do not miss out on sleep. Switch off your phone or put in on silent mode when you go to sleep. Half of your stress is technology induced stress.
Don’t take refuge in pain killers. A large number of young professionals are in the habit of popping pills to suppress migraine, which is a bad idea. Reliance on pain killers can lead to kidney and liver disorders.
Get moving. Use stairs instead of the elevator. Work out, run, walk, dance, cycle, swim. Do whatever you enjoy. A sedentary lifestyle can wreck your body in the most shocking ways.
Say no to junk food. Carry tasteful, homemade food with you.
Replace aerated and artificial drinks with healthy refreshing drinks such as nariyal paani or nimbu paani.
Cut down on salt.
Include fish in your diet. It is good for your cardiovascular system.
Avoid red meat and fried food.
Do not over eat. Practice portion control.
Munch on citrus fruits, watermelon, black and green olives and figs.
Kalonji (black cumin), garlic, ginger and apple cider vinegar are good for your health.
