People want to live longer and healthy so they can enjoy their lives and get to see their great grand children. Not everyone will agree to this statement but most of the people will. Living longer and healthy at the same time is the life long goal of almost every human being. Not everyone is lucky enough to achieve this goal. There are many ways one can try his or her best to take a shot at it.
Have a positive attitude towards life. Enjoy every bit and every moment of the day. Life is too short to worry about things. The positive attitude has physiological affects on your body and mind. As long as your body and mind are at ease you can guarantee yourself a stress less journey.
Eat healthy diet. It can include all the fruits, vegetables, nuts and, minerals and, nutrients you need. More diverse your food intake is more you will receive out of it. Adding herbs and antioxidants to your diet can greatly help you to keep your arteries clean, your skin smooth and, make you look younger. You will also feel younger and full of energy ready to do anything. There is a famous saying “You are what you eat”. Indulging your self with lots of food is also not a good idea. You should always eat as much as your stomach could handle. It is best to stop eating while you are still a bit hungry. This strategy is followed because the message of satiety is received by the brain a bit later while you are eating.
Exercise is the key to a healthy life. A healthy lifestyle will take you a long way in your life. Stronger your health is longer you will live. Exercise makes your body stronger, so it is beneficial to exercise. How much you should exercise depends on your current body condition. One should start with a little exercise and increase the amount bit by bit. It should be a pleasant experience for your body and not some extremely strenuous regiment of training. Regiment training will only be beneficial if you are training for a sport or competition. It is great to take part in sports and physical competitions but you need a balance in your life. Keeping a fine balance in all the activities of your life is the key to success. Current research shows that even exercising with your brain for example playing chess or mental games will keep a person from developing dementia like Alzheimer’s disease.
