Health comes first even for a poker player!
The world of poker is full of glamour and extravaganza but, in order to maintain growth in your career, you have to be physically and mentally fit. The players who are successfully running their career for a long time work on the same principle- health comes first!
A few aspects to focus on to lead a healthy life:
- Maintain a daily schedule: As many high-end poker tournaments are hosted during the late night hours, it becomes a necessity to have a proper work-sleep schedule. After calculating the hours you put in for actually playing the game and learning the skills, you should have a definite sleep schedule. Although we know it is easier said than done but, it won’t take an arm and a leg to achieve this goal!
- Have a balanced diet: Eat your veggies, mate! Sitting on your gaming chair for long hours is essentially the reason behind players getting unfit. Dull skin and bags under the eyes is the consequence of this lifestyle. So no matter what process you choose, make sure you take a balanced, healthy diet.
- Pledge to be physically fit: Abstaining from alcohol and exercising daily should be a pointer on your to-do-list. With more technologies surfacing, we have a plethora of options to choose from such as Zumba, Pilates, yoga, cardio exercise and many more. Physical activities work both for the betterment of physical as well as mental health.
- Always try to take long breaks: Not many players realize the importance of breaks and vacations from their regular life as a professional poker player. Taking breaks not only rejuvenates the mental health of a player but also aids in leading a happy family life.
Following a healthy regime does sound challenging and demanding but, it could do wonders to both your personal and professional life if you manage to reach the end goal. A few months down the line, you will be in a happy place, definitely!
