Health And Lifestyle
Live a Healthy Lifestyle You hear a lot about living a healthy lifestyle, but what does that mean? In general, a healthy person doesn’t smoke, is at a healthy weight, eats healthy and exercises. Sounds simple, doesn’t it?
The trick to healthy living is making small changes…walking, adding fruits and vegetables to your daily meals, drinking more water…these are just a few ways you can start living healthy without drastic changes.
Exercise One of the biggest problems in America today is the lack of activity. We all know that it’s good for us but avoid it like the plague because we are afraid that exercise has to be rigorous to make an impact. The truth is, the more you move, the healthier you’ll be. Even moderate activities like chores, gardening and walking can make a difference.
Just adding a little movement to your life can:
- Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes
- Improve joint stability
- Increase and improve range of movement
- Help maintain flexibility as you age
- Maintain bone mass
- Prevent osteoporosis and fractures
- Improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression
- Enhance self esteem
- Improve memory in elderly people
- Reduce stress
Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to mean drastic changes. In fact, drastic changes almost always lead to failure. Making small changes in how you live each day can lead to big rewards, so figure out what you can do to be healthy today.
