5 Healthy Habits To Keep In The New Normal

What are healthy habits to keep in the new normal?

  1. Eating healthy
  2. Exercising more often
  3. Regular breathing and stretching routines
  4. Spending time outdoors
  5. Brush up on a new skill

Routines influence our daily life — both at work and at home. There’s no doubt that the pandemic has modified our daily routines. But the question is: should you keep these pandemic-induced routines? Yes, you should! The routines you built during the lockdown period are crucial to maintaining your health in the long run. It is known that the coronavirus still exists. Here are some of the new normal healthy habits you should keep. 

Eating healthy

Eating healthy

One thing that stuck with many families over the last two years of the pandemic is cooking at home. While much of this was caused by restaurant restrictions, cooking at home should be a habit that everyone should maintain even as the local society fully recovers from the pandemic.  

Those who frequently cook meals at home eat healthier. The key to continuing to eat healthy in the new normal is balance. 

Maintain a healthy, balanced diet with a wide variety of foods, and try to buy ingredients fresh from your local market or grocer. We also recommend cooking new dishes on weekends to keep cooking at home interesting.

The best thing is that you can still enjoy the occasional take-out. You can still order the restaurant dishes you love to eat, but do so in moderation.

Exercising more often

It is well-known that exercising regularly is good for the body. If you aren’t the kind of person who loves going to the gym, don’t worry! Getting active nowadays is not a problem. There are many beginner-friendly workout videos online. You can do these with minimal equipment at home. 

Of course, you can also get your heart pumping by exercising outdoors. There are many jogging trails and basketball courts where you can burn some calories at. Just be sure to wear the right gear and do a proper warm-up and cool down.

Regular breathing and stretching routines

If you have little free time in the day to squeeze in a workout routine, then at least set aside ten to twenty minutes to do some breathing and stretching exercises. 

Doing this daily can help clear your head from the stress of the day. It can also prevent body aches from staying seated in one position for hours, which is common in the common work-from-home situation. 

You can also involve the whole family in this exercise to foster mental and physical wellness. Even kids need some quiet time to unwind and doing breathing and stretching exercises can do just that. Use this time to take a break from the hustle and bustle.  

Spending time outdoors

Spending time outdoors

With all the limited options for socializing, many of us have found refuge in spacious, green areas. Parks, trails, and outdoor function areas have been a safe haven for many families during the pandemic and there’s no need to shun this change, even with restrictions easing. 

Now that we can venture out more often, there’s no better time to appreciate and spend time in the great outdoors. People need to be near nature and enjoy being close to it. 

Even in the new normal, you should continue going for strolls around your neighborhood, or have an afternoon picnic at the park. These are safe and fun ways to socialize with family and friends.

You can also use outdoor spaces to meditate and enjoy some alone time. Try going out after work to get some exercise in, or just watch the sunset while in your garden. Whatever activity you choose, use this time to clear your mind and connect with nature.

Brush up on a new skill

At the start of the pandemic, most of us found ourselves with a lot more free time than usual. As a result, we started to pick up new hobbies or took the time to work on new skills. From experimenting in the kitchen to starting a home garden to trying out activities like knitting, we all found new ways to kill time at home. 

Even now that we are transitioning into a new normal, we encourage you to take the time to brush up on new skills. A few popular activities to try are hiking and biking. These are entirely beginner-friendly options that are both mentally and physically stimulating. And, many townships and villages in the Philippines, like Pueblo de Oro, offer great trails for you to try!

Now is the perfect time to find new outlets to have some fun. You may even feel that you’re more productive and can channel positive energy toward your everyday routines once you find new, enjoyable hobbies. 

Key Takeaway

With pandemic restrictions easing country-wide, we’re returning to a sense of normality. Now more than ever, it’s time to keep up with the routine you’ve worked hard to establish. Keep these healthy habits in the new normal!
