The chaos of the city life, the busyness of work, and your private life that you have to carry out besides all these… Do you feel that you have difficulties sometimes? Unfortunately, your answer is "Yes." You are not alone; many people are tired of the exhausting city life. Scientific research shows that people living in cities are 21% more likely to develop anxiety disorders and 39% more likely to have mood disorders than those living in rural areas. Considering that 66% of the world's population is expected to live in cities by 2050, the impact of city living on mental health is more important than ever.
It is normal to get stressed from time to time in the chaos of the city, but you have to be careful to prevent this problem from going deeper. So here are five suggestions to protect your health against the tiring city life!
Get Sufficient and Regular Sleep
Remember that regular and quality sleep is crucial to combat stress during the day. A good night's sleep boosts your defense against stress and supports your psychological well-being and overall cognitive and physical performance. Therefore, it would help to regulate environmental factors to improve your sleep quality. For example, you can use blackout curtains, earplugs, or an eye patch. In addition, you should not forget that excessive interaction with digital devices negatively affects your sleep patterns. For this reason, it may be beneficial to limit your digital device activities, such as computers, tablets, and mobile phones, close to your bedtime.
Consume Healthy, Fresh, and Organic Foods
One of the most critical factors that will support you in the fight against city stress is to gain regular eating habits. Thanks to many applications developed with fast delivery options, it is possible to access any food you want 24/7. At this point, you should make your choice not from fast-food restaurants and unhealthy foods; to use healthy, fresh, and organic foods. "Accessing organic food in the city is not as easy as in the countryside." But, you do not think that many applications are developed for this. You can benefit from these applications by turning your life at the city's focal point and digitalization into an advantage. A diet that you will create from healthy, organic, and homemade foods; will put you in touch with nature, and making it a habit will make you feel better.
Get a Hobby You'll Love
Doing the same things every day gets tiring after a while. Get a hobby to get away from your business life and the chaos of the city and spare time for it during the day. You can start playing a musical instrument, learn to paint, or enroll in a cooking class. Remember, there is no age limit to discovering and realizing your talents. It's never too late to find activities you enjoy doing. Listen to your inner voice and act now for whatever you want to do!
Don't Skip the Sport
