Health is influenced by the way of life. If we want to be well, if we want to be fit we have to have a regular daily routine. It means we have to get up at the same time, we have to go to bed at the fixed time. We have to have a rest too. If we want to be well we would better walk to school not go by bus, or by car. We would better not take the lift, but walk up the stairs an down the stairs.
One of the most effective ways of keeping fit is do some sport. You needn't be a professional sportsman. Taking exercise is very healthy.
