What do people think about this period? I thought this period was a good opportunity to change my life. Why did I change my life? Because my life has been unhealthy. I wanted to be fulfilled in my life and I don't want to get fat. I mean, I easily get fat, and it is difficult to maintain my body. So I have tried a lot of things.
At first, I changed my eating habits. I have never been careful about it. Most of the time, I was eating sweets, carbohydrates and high-calorie foods. These smells attract me. Therefore my health condition is sometimes bad, but I didn't try to change it because it's hard for me to limit my favorite foods. But this period gave me a good opportunity to rethink my eating habits. At the beginning of this period, I was feeling sick. Then I decided to change it. In particular, I tried not to eat carbohydrates, snacks and sweets. These are the fat factors. On the contrary, I tried to eat vegetables, protein, low calorie food and drink only water and a cup of coffee. These are generally good for human health and won’t make you get fat. So I try to eat these as much as possible. As a result, I lost a little weight. And my health condition became better than before. I have come to think about nutrition when I cook for myself. These dishes taste good and smell very good. Thanks to that, I can cook many dishes. Changing it had a positive effect for me.
Another thing I want to change is my sleep habits. Now, on weekdays, I go to sleep by 11pm and get up by 7am. On weekends, I go to sleep by 1am and get up by 9am. Before, I used to go to sleep at about 5am and get up in the evening. Usually the view I saw when I woke up was not blue. Or I didn’t get enough sleep. This affected my physical condition. It was difficult to spend time studying and exercising because I was too sleepy and lacked concentration. So I needed to change my sleep habits. After changing them, I could use my time effectively by making good sleep habits. And I saw a different view. It used to see a dark view but now I can see a bright view. That view changed me from a dark feeling to a bright feeling. Also I can set up a proper schedule. Therefore, I feel happy every day.
Next, I quit smoking about one month ago because I heard that smokers are prone to corona. Another reason is that I felt it wasn't necessary for a healthy life. When I was smoking, sometimes I was frustrated and lacking concentration when I couldn’t smoke. So I didn't think I could stop it, and I didn't even want to. Now that I have stopped it, my worries are that when my friend smoke next to me, I will want to smoke, and I sometimes get annoyed. But now I don't smoke anymore and that bad cycle is lost.
I can feel every day is fulfilling by changing my life, and I can spend more time studying and exercising. Corona has many negative effects, but it was a good opportunity to change my life. People tend to have bad lifestyles during this period, but it's a good period of opportunity depending on their own consciousness, so I think it was good to make an effort. I will continue to live a fulfilling life.
