What do we mean by healthy living?
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
For me healthy lifestyle means first of all less stress (controlling as much i can), less chemicals into my daily care routine, sport as per my body health condition, exposing to sun after 4:00 pm, taking care of my daily hydration and eating healthy, a varied diet like: Fruit and vegetables –at least 5 portions a day, Whole grains bread, pasta, cereal, potatoes and other starchy roots- why? because whole grains are packed with nutrients, including protein, fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants, and trace minerals (iron, zinc, copper, and magnesium), Organic Meat, fish and/or meat alternatives such as eggs, peas, beans, soya and nuts, Natural source of milk.
I am avoiding too much fat (especially saturated fat), sugar and salt, i limit drinking alcohol and i never smoke.
I am, as much possible, physically active, because i know this builds muscle strength and fitness, encourages better mobility and balance, increases appetite and burns up calories, helps to prevent conditions such as constipation, heart disease and osteoporosis and has been associated with better mental health.
I am active, i care, i help, I spend my time with people i like and i love, specially with my little angel, i keep in touch with friends and family, talking with them about my feelings, ask for advice or help and always i am taking a break from thinks makes me tired and do something i like the most or i am good at.
I am not perfect, and sometimes i skip so many thinks from my healthy routine but i am trying my best.
