Healthy people feel better and live longer. Our health depends on our lifestyle. We are, therefore, responsible for our own health. Here`s what we can do:
Have a balanced diet that will provide the needed minerals, vitamins and nutrients. Fresh foods are the best, including plenty of vegetables and fruits. Fatty, fried or sugary foods should be limited. Eat on a regular schedule, but not too late in the evening—and avoid the temptation to overeat.
Set aside time for daily exercise. You will be less prone to illness and obesity, as well as feel fiter and stronger. Choose an activity that you enjoy and that is not too strenuous.
Drink enough liquid every day - such as water, herf teas or juices.
Limit your time in the sun to avoid skin damage caused by the harmful ultra violet rays of the sun. Also, practise good hygiene and proper grooming.
Keep your mind in good order – for example, don`t succumb to bad moods or depression. Rather, try to be happy and cheerful – and smile more. Love and friendship are also very important for the well-being of our psyche.
Spend some time outdoors each day and breathe in fresh clean air.
Have about 8 hours of sleep every night to avoid feeling tired, weak or irritable during the day. For better rest, sleep in room that is not overheated and has some air circulation.
