To give your 100%, even 150% every day for your work (company, personal, etc.), you must have a proper plan to maintain your well-being, stay in good shape, and stay healthy. Right?
Enough sleep and enough eating are not sufficient though . Both ensure your personal needs, but won't ensure your resilience, speed, and flexibility 👀.
Thus, in this topic, I'll share my way of maintaining my well-being & healthy shape. And Yes, I am able to give my 100%+ every day wherever I work 😎.
Light morning exercise 🏃♂️
I'm a morning person. Yes, I go to bed at 12 AM and wake up at 7:40~8:00 AM every day (not really early lol 😆)
Every morning, I'll have a cup of water, then have some light exercises, my go-to exercises are:
Running on the spot
I usually exercise for around 5 to 10 minutes. After the light workout, it would make me fully awake, feeling bumps 💪.
Morning coffee ☕️
Yeah, I'm addicted to this, can't get away haha. My favorite coffee is Vietnamese Milk Coffee (I usually buy that from a popular store in Vietnam called Highlands Coffee) ☕️.
Coffee is good for your health too (read the research), just 1-2 cups a day and you'll be fine.
Stay hydrated 💦
I drink about 3 liters of water daily. Based on your weight & height, most people would recommend you drink > 2 liters a day 💦.
I have a small cup (around 250ml), when working and out of water, I'll have to go downstairs and get some. Thus, I have 2 birds with 1 stone, I can do some light walking (including stair climbing) and I can stay hydrated 😆.
Stay hydrated friends, water is really good for your health and organs.
Have lunch on time 🌮
There are people who skip lunch. There are people who eat lunch late (due to anything, e.g.: meeting).
But not for me. I always have lunch on time (12 PM every day) and I won't skip lunch.
On weekdays, I book the lunchtime (from 12 PM to 1 PM), mark it as OOO, and automatically reject any meeting invitation .

- Grandma of Kamen Rider Kabuto, once said
It is not healthy to have any meeting at your lunchtime. If that's the case, immediately contact your supervisor/engineering manager to solve that out .
Not only for lunch but for every meal, I'll have them exactly on time.
Workout after work hour 🏋️
After working hours, I usually work out for 30 mins to 1 hour 🏋️.
It helps us to release the stressful things after work. Working out gives you a peaceful state of mind. And yes, increase your stamina, strength, and flexibility.
Many birds with one stone, isn't it? 🏎️
Alternatively, you can go out for a long walk, running, or anything that you like. Physically training really cool and helps us a lot.
Hobby time 🎉
After dinner & spent some time with my family, I'll have some time left before going to bed. And that's hobby time 🎉
Having hobbies is really joyful. Doing what you like reduces stress & brings happiness 🥰.
Hobbies are varied. For me, depends on the mood, I would:
Watch superhero movies/episodes
Play video games
I usually play League of Legends (normal or ARAM) ⚔.
Recently, I've been playing Red Dead Redemption 2 again, after that, I'd check out GTA V (lol it has been around for 10 years and I haven't actually played it) 🤠.
Also, Minecraft, freaking love the game and build crazy stuff there haha 🧱.
Read/Research trendy tech stuff
Check out figures/cosplay (my newest hobby 😂 lol).
Then I'll call it a day.
That's how I keep up the pace and maintain my well-being state. How about you?
If you haven't thought about this, let's prepare some plan too. The earlier the better.
Maintaining well-being will help you persevere in the long run, remaining resilient, reliable, and strong 💪.
