April 7th of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the campaign has aimed to create awareness of specific health themes to highlight priority areas.
Over the past 50 years this has brought to light important health issues such as mental health, child care and climate change. The campaign is marked by activities which extend beyond the day itself and serve as an opportunity to focus worldwide attention on these important aspects of global health.
The theme for 2021 is 'Building a fairer, healthier world.' After living in lockdown for the past 12 months, mental health and well-being have become a top priority for all of us, in both our personal and professional lives and so Riada wanted to share with you some top tips our team follow every day to help be well and do well.
Drink more water.
You may hear this tip all the time, but it can make a big difference. Start by using a water bottle and bringing it with you wherever you go - practice good habits.
Don’t skip meals.
Skipping meals can interrupt body’s regular eating rhythm. It also leaves you lethargic, causing you to grab something high in calories and sugar instead of a healthier alternative like fruit.
This is always a good tip that we don’t do enough of. Smiling helps you feel more confident and good about yourself. When you’re feeling that way you’ll take better care of yourself and live a healthier life.
If you’re trying to start eating healthier, then you know that the afternoon or evening cravings can be your downfall. Make sure to always have healthy snacks close at hand. This will help you avoid the sweet treats or junk food.
Getting outside in the fresh air,can do great things for your mental health and your mood. Whether you plan a local trip or just go for a walk around your neighborhood, get outside, move, and feel better.
We often don’t allow ourselves to get the sleep our bodies crave. Getting to bed earlier will help you relax and be ready for sleep at a more reasonable time. Your body will thank you.
