It seems this topic keeps coming up for me in one form or another. I could repeat old posts or try to find something new to talk about.
What is a healthy lifestyle? That really depends on who you talk to.
Good health is not just the absence of disease or illness, it is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being.
This means eating a balanced diet, getting regular exercise, avoiding tobacco and drugs and getting plenty of rest. (BBC)
Consequently, more than just healthy living, we must talk about a healthy lifestyle that includes food, physical exercise, preventive healthcare, work, the relationship with the environment, and social activity. (My Parla)
A healthy lifestyle is one which helps to keep and improve people's health and wellbeing. Many governments and non-governmental organizations work at promoting healthy lifestyles. They measure the benefits with critical health numbers, including weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, and blood cholesterol. Healthy living is a lifelong effect. Being healthy includes healthy eating, physical activities, weight management, and stress management. Good health allows people to do many things.
A healthy lifestyle also incorporates a balanced diet. This does not mean cutting out important food groups of your diet or limiting yourself on the amount of calories per day. A well-rounded diet involves employing mostly all of the food groups into every meal. Meats, dairy, fruits and vegetables are all important components of a meal that will ensure your body is full while still staying healthy. Wikipedia
This is what I have on my fridge as a reminder:
I printed it out about a year ago intending to make 2020 a much healthier year than all that had gone before. But then the shit hit the proverbial fan and I was unable to. I am hoping to start working on it again by the end of November but it depends on Covid and the government.
