Living a Healthy Lifestyle

Having a healthy lifestyle means living a balanced life and finding joy in your intellectual, physical and spiritual well being. Many people developed a host of unhealthy habits that are useful for coping with the stresses of everyday life.

It’s very important to leave bad habits behind. It takes a long time to get to that goal. Try to practice your new healthy habits for about 3 months. If you do, you’ll be living a much healthier, satisfying life. Quitting smoking is the easiest and fastest way to improve your health. The sooner you quit, the longer you’ll live. Also it is very important to eat well to stay well. Nutrition, especially a diet high in saturated fat, red meat, dairy products, and junk food can lead to cardiovascular disease, the number one killer of men.

You should cut down on many fatty foods, avoid eating large amounts of junk food and eat more fruits and vegetables. A nutritious diet is based on generous amounts of filling, energy-rich food such as bread, pasta and rice and plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits. For protein choose lean meat, fish, legumes, and low fat dairy products. Avoid butter, and stick to moderate amounts of low-fat versions of milk, yogurt, cheese and ice cream.

Choose olive oil or granola and low-fat, oil based products such as margarine instead of butter. Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration since we constantly lose water through urinating, sweating, and breathing. You should always keep a bottle of water with you during the day.

Exercising helps you live longer, relieve stress, helps protect you against diseases such as flu and cold. Doing some forms of aerobic exercise like swimming, biking, jogging or walking are all beneficial as well as swimming, biking, jogging or walking. Before starting a fitness program, make sure to consult with your doctor first. Maintain a healthy weight, because being overweight aggravates high blood pressure and can lead to heart disease.

Have a positive attitude and learn to laugh as well. See your doctor for regular checkups and do self-exams monthly.

    I came across your site from twitter,you have some good info here for people to start thinking about getting healthy,i just wanted to make one comment about people quitting smoking.This is very hard for most people,one of the best ways i found to make it easier to stop smoking is the person needs to start detoxing,all that nicotine in their system needs to come out so they can handle the reaction better,
    take care
