Living Healthy – 3 Secrets to Healthier Living

Life is all too short.  Find ways to really live and enjoy it to the fullest everyday will help you make the best of every precious moment of it. Here are 3 secrets to living a longer healthier life.
 
Eat Well – What you feed your body determines how you feel, how you look, and how you feel about yourself. And all of these and directly related to how much and well you are able to really enjoy doing the things you love.
 
The term eating well has been used so often, it’s sometimes hard to define exactly what that means. A balanced is first on the list. This includes fruits, vegetables, high fiber, multi-grains, and lean meat, fish, and foods that are low in sugar and salt. Organic foods give you the assurance that chemicals have not been used in growing or manufacturing, and sumptuous taste is well worth the additional cost.
 
For those of us who love to eat, this kind of diet can sound limiting and even harsh. But a walk down different aisles of your supermarket will yield a pleasant surprise. There are delicious vegetable burgers, tasty low fat hot dogs, and dozens of yummy choices for dessert that are lower in calories but not in flavor. Gelatos, sorbets, and frozen yogurts are just a few delicious alternatives waiting for you to try.
 
You’ll find that a body that you thought was losing it, can look healthier, and younger again as you start thinking outside the box about the foods with which you fuel your body.
 
Keep Moving – A hundred years ago, daily life demanded physical activity. There were very few cars, elevators, escalators, washing machines, vacuums, or any of the other modern conveniences that make our lives so easy now. So there was no need to go to the gym because daily living required constant activity.
 
Now with vacuums that move on their own, multi-car families as the rule, subways, high rise buildings that demand use of an elevator, and remotes for everything, you can go through a whole day without moving very much at all.
 
Lack of movement may seem like a convenience, but is really hazardous to your health. If you don’t use it, you lose it has never been more true. What do you lose? Muscle tone, endurance, and energy are greatly decreased with limited activity. 
 
But with such a busy lifestyle, how can you work in activity without adding hours to the day that you just don’t have? Use half of your lunch hour for a walk. Park further away from the store and walk. If you love to work in the garden, do it often. Consider getting a bicycle and riding with your children. Dance with the vacuum as you clean the house. And my personal favorite, get a dog and go for a walk every day.
 
Breathe Fresh Air – An 88 year old perky friend of mine keeps her house absolutely frigid. Even in the winter her windows are always open just a little. She attributes her long life and good health to breathing fresh air. Wow I thought.
 
But where does one get fresh air these days? Depending on where you live, opening the windows may let in more pollutants than fresh air, but the concept of always introducing new indoors is a healthy one.
 
If opening your windows is not a possibility, a high efficiency particle arresting (or HEPA) air purifier is and excellent solution for keeping the air inside your home fresh, clean and healthy.
 
HEPA air purifiers can remove pollutants as small as .3 microns includes household dust, dust mites, mold and mildew spores, pet dander, and bacteria and viruses. All of these are known to trigger respiratory conditions such as allergies and asthma. And filtering your air 24 hours a day is even better than opening the windows because it allows you to keep the temperature comfortable all the time.
 
Making changes in these three areas of your life with make living healthier fun, and will make life more fun to live.

An excellent HEPA air purifier to help you live a healthier life by removing pollutants from your air is offered by PurerAir.com– the HealthMate Air Purifier

Strategies for healthy living

Do you want to lead a proper life? Many individuals are now interested to move towards a healthier life pushed mainly by the campaigns that are made for a better nutrition. Indeed lots of our current health problems are caused by our wrong diet and may have been prevented if we eat properly. For example by reducing our consumption of meat and rather concentrate on more vegetables, you can definitely reduce the risk of developing some health conditions. The goal of this post is to provide you more details on the changes that you can make and I hope that itâ??ll be useful for you.

Firstly it might be important that you consume some balanced diet. Some of us have a diet that looks like that of wild animals as evidenced by the amount of meat we eat. People can indeed benefit more from the consumption of more vegetables and fruits. This may prevent us from accumulating too much fat within our body and at the same time provide all the nutrients needed for the good working of our body. You can have a look at our French internet site on cuisine () because it carries some useful point.

Eating vegetables and fruits may also help in healing some health conditions. There are lots of individuals who suffer from flatulence and may benefit from altering their diet. In fact flatulence is mainly caused by poor digestion and changes in your diet can certainly be helpful in order to cope with such condition. Definitely reducing your intake of certain food can bring some additional benefits for you personally. Recently I have come across this French article on flatulence () and should be interesting for you to take a look.

If you really enjoy the changes to your diet you can also be interested to share it with your friends and relatives. I have been to some receptions where only healthy food was offered. This can be a good way for you to help your mates by altering their lifestyle. And if you know how to do it properly you may also make some savings on the cost of arranging your reception. In case you require more information about this topic you can take a look at this French article on reception planning () since it features some useful point.

In order to live a proper life then there are some changes that you will have to make to your way of life. And in many instances you simply must make some changes to your eating habit. For example you might like to reduce your consumption of meat and preferably increase your intake of fruits and veggies. Over time youâ??ll really reap the benefits of this change. This post has only supplied a short list of modifications and there are plenty more that you may find by searching on the internet.

Q&A: How do I keep healthy at a Scottish music festival?

Question by Evou: How do I keep healthy at a Scottish music festival?
I’m going to a 3 day music festival in June and I’m currently on a high protein “bulk up” diet. I work out 4-5 times a week whilst eating as best I can and would like to keep this up!

I will obviously be drinking a great deal but that is a must ;p

I’m just looking for any tips as I’m kind of new to the whole health/diet/work out thing.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best answer:

Answer by Julie
Try to limit your drinking, have something like tonic water instead of an alcohol beverage. You can also pack some healthy snacks and take them along with you, and be careful what you order, no really fat foods if this is possible.

Enjoy the festival and once its over get back on your work out routine and stick to the bulk up diet.
