How A Healthy Lifestyle Can Give You More Years To Live
Being healthy entails more than just eating a salad once in a while or going for a hike once every other week. These habits are advisable but need to be patterned in such a way that guarantees maximum wellness. Consistency is the key to sustained health.
You need to put extra effort into other important spheres of your life that amount to total wellness, making it your lifestyle with time. You could try reordering your pattern of hiking and diet, fitness exercises, and social activities for at least a month until your body gets accustomed to it. To improve your lifestyle will take effort and commintment, and you’ll certainly need to make some changes, but it is not beyond your reach. So then, what are the basic requirements for living a healthy lifestyle?
The phrase “You are what you eat” is not farfetched, as the food we consume basically determines the pattern of our growth, be it obesity or leanness. Hence, it is important that we pattern our eating in such a way that guarantees maximum intake of quality nutrient whilst satisfying the taste buds. This patterning of our eating is what is termed dieting, and it is not a decision that can be rushed into. It requires the consultation of your doctor who may refer you to a dietician for a diet specially designed for you, yourself, and you.
Though you may not be a gym freak, exercise still makes up a considerable part of your lifestyle, should you desire to stay healthy. Exercising builds up the body’s systems in such a way that our endurance and tolerance for illness is greatly increased. Consistent exercises such as taking a hike each morning, jogging, or working out in the gym (whether personal or local) not only build up your body’s immunity but also add finesse to your physique, much to the admiration of folks around.
Here are a few tips about exercising you should know;
[otw_shortcode_unordered_list items=”4″ style=”with-icon list-style-1″ item_1_name=”Always start and finish your workout with stretching: Gently stretching your body warms up your muscles for your workout session and helps them relax afterwards. This is also useful in hiking, as your legs need an encouraging stretch session before starting the jog or hike. You could try stretching your calves by standing at arm’s length away from a wall and putting your right foot behind your left foot. Bend your left leg forward, but keep your right leg straight and grounded on the floor. Hold the position for about 30 seconds, then change to the other leg. Other stretches you could perform include the hamstring stretch, side stretch, arm stretch, and a whole lot of others.” item_2_name=”Visit the gym 2-4 times per week: You should work out in the gym for at least 30 to 60 minutes, combining both cardio and strength training programs. At least two and a half hours of moderate aerobics is recommended weekly. All in all, you visiting the gym and meeting others working out at the gym will spur you to workout even more. More often than not, we tend not to do things (especially working out) on our own due to distractions. Hence, if you’re not a gym person, you could regulate your visit to the gym as it suits you, while keeping in mind your end goal of a healthy body and lifestyle.” item_3_name=”Your Neighborhood – Your Number 1 Exercise Ground: Besides hitting the gym, your neighborhood is the first practical gym center you have around you. It costs nothing to take a jog around the block and finalize your daily exercise with a stretching session at your doorstep. Take advantage of this and go for morning jogs through your neighborhood or take your dog for a walk. Make sure that you move at a moderate pace for at least 30 minutes while breathing easy.” item_4_name=”Walk to Live: Rather than continuing the monotony of driving or taking the bus to work, take your time and go where you need to go on foot. The walk builds up your muscles for subsequent times when you’ll really need to use your legs. If you have to use public transportation, you could get off a couple of stops early and do the rest of your route on foot.”][/otw_shortcode_unordered_list]
