Healthy Living Habits make up Healthy Lifestyle. What is a Healthy Lifestyle? A Healthy Lifestyle constitutes each and every parameter which promotes health and well being of an individual. Most of the people associate healthy lifestyle to just healthy eating. Though healthy eating is included in the factor which leads to healthy lifestyle, there are other factors also.
The other factors which promote a way towards Healthy Lifestyle are-
- Physical Fitness
- Personal Hygiene
- Good Sleeping Habits
- Health Education
- Healthy Relationships
- Absence of Alcohol Addiction
- Absence of Smoking Addiction
- Strong Immunity
So, now the question which needs to be addressed is `How can one adopt a healthy lifestyle’? Well, one has to work on above listed factors including healthy eating to adopt a healthy lifestyle. One can start adopting healthy lifestyle by starting to adopt healthy eating as the primary step. As healthy eating is the easiest step you can follow to engage yourself in making yourself a good beginner towards your journey of Healthy lifestyle.
So ,what does healthy eating involves? Healthy eating involves eating balanced diet. Balanced Diet contains carbohydrate, fat and protein in equal proportions so as to fulfill the requirements of nutrients in a balanced and healthy way. So balanced diet may seem a futile exercise if you do not follow Healthy Eating Habits. Healthy Eating Habits are inculcated in children by their parents. Thus Healthy Eating is the most significant teaching lesson which a parent can bestow upon their children. Healthy Eating is the first brick on the wall of healthy lifestyle.
The second brick on the wall of Healthy Lifestyle is Physical Fitness. Physical fitness is governed by the strength, stamina and endurance you built by doing regular exercise or going for workouts in gym or doing some yoga asanas. This healthy habit of regularly working out is not developed in a one day but is a process of regularly working out daily so as to make your body adapt to new exercise/workout schedule. Seventy percent of the people quit after three or four days of their new exercise schedule. Thus their sole aim of being fit hangs over someone due to lack of patience and thus expecting the results quickly.
The next parameter is Personal Hygiene. Taking Bath Daily, Washing Hands before and after the Meal, brushing your Teeth regularly are some the major insights of personal hygiene.
Good Sleeping Habits are the next important steps in marking your healthy lifestyle journey. Early to Bed and Early to Rise is still the best hit sleeping schedule you can follow for a healthy life. Taking good sleep of 6-7 hours at night helps in making you stay active and efficient during the day.
Health Education should be the subject in a School Curriculum. A good health education makes the society aware of importance of healthy habits thus helps in building up healthy vibrant society. This healthy vibrant society fights successfully to any infectious disease endemic or pandemic.
Healthy relationships make your Life Loving and Happy. So, healthy relationships are antidote to stressed and depressed lives. It is important to share if you are facing any kind of depression. We should learn from the example of Actress Deepika Padukone when she opened about her depression in front of media.
The next strong brick on the wall of healthy lifestyle is saying bye bye to your addiction to alcohol and smoking. The leading chronic diseases like throat cancer and liver cancer are related to it.
Last but not the least the last brick of Strong Immunity. So if you follow and learn to adopt the above factors in your lifestyle you automatically land up in developing strong immunity. A strong immunity implies being less prone to catching up minor infections and thus smooth healthy functioning of human body.
So, Are you ready to follow Healthy Habits for Healthy Life? If not, make up your mind because Healthy Habits pave a way towards Healthy and Happy Life.
