What is the best way to stay healthy in Australia?

OSHCstudents- Staying healthy in Australia, like anywhere else, involves a combination of adopting a healthy lifestyle, and accessing quality healthcare. Here are some healthy tips you should consider when living in Australia.

Get adequate sleep

Aim to get 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night. Avoid binge-watching shows late at night and keep your bedroom cool, dark, and quiet to promote better sleep. The melatonin production has always been taken for granted. Melatonin is an enzyme with anti-oxidant properties, which is produced by the body from 9:30 p.m. onwards and subsides at around 4 a.m. This is the time when the cells undergo repair work at their best. The perfect time to rest and allow the body to heal.

Eat a balanced diet

Choose foods that are high in fiber, protein, and vitamins. Avoid processed and sugary foods. Incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet, and try to limit your intake of saturated fats.

Stay active

Aim for 30 minutes of exercise per day, such as walking, running, biking, or swimming. Try to add in some strength training exercises such as weight lifting or bodyweight exercises.

Drink plenty of water

Staying adequately hydrated is important for your overall health. Aim for 6-8 glasses of water per day. You can also drink herbal teas and other non-caffeinated beverages.

Manage stress

Take time for yourself and make sure to practice stress-relieving activities such as yoga or meditation. Make sure to take breaks from work and technology throughout the day.

Get regular check-ups

Make sure to get regular physicals and screenings to catch any health issues early.

Stay positive throughout the day.

This will help keep oxygen levels high, consequently keeping the body cells healthy because cells would die off when there is a lack of it. On the same note, oxygen is necessary for detoxification to take place.

The above might seem daunting to most people. The key is to begin small steps but with consistency.

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
