If we look up the question “what is a healthy lifestyle”, we may come across answers that state that virtuous nutrition, regular exercise, and sufficient sleep are the fundamentals of healthy living. However, a healthy lifestyle isn’t just a nutritious one but one which is inclusive of numerous aspects such as good mental health, a healthy and stable social life, and a hale and hearty personal life.
Let’s take a closer look at these aspects.
- Healthy diet
A healthy diet isvital for good health and nourishment. It protects us from several chronic noncontagious ailments, such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Eating a range of foods and consuming a reduced amount of salt, sugars, and saturated and industrially produced trans-fats, are crucial for a healthy diet. Along with consuming a healthy meal, sufficient sleep and exercising is extremely important to achieve a healthy lifestyle as well.
- Good mental health
Mental health comprises one’s emotional, psychological, and societal well-being. Our mental well-being is imperative at every stage of our life, from childhood and puberty through maturity. Deterioration of mental health can cause us chronic disorders such as anxiety, obesity, depression, etc. Hence, keeping good and stable mental health is necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle
- Healthy Social Life
We all recognize that Human beings are social animals and they can’t function properly without the means of communication. But what goes beyond communication (which is a requirement for our survival) is interaction. We interact with one another not just to survive but to withstand life. But if our surroundings are affecting us negatively instead of positively, we won’t be able to uphold a healthy lifestyle. Hence, we must constantly surround ourselves with positive energy and avoid pessimistic individuals around us.
- Healthy Personal Life
Along with a healthy social life having a healthy personal life is equally important if not more so. It is necessary for us to spend some time alone and relax rather than constantly being engaged with chores and people because excessive contact with others can lead us to exhaustion and frustration. Hence maintaining a healthy personal life where we can make time for ourselves and things we like is required by every individual. Self-Love is a conception that is highly encouraged by people these days and has gradually developed to have become a necessity. It is a concept that everyone should embrace in order to lead a healthy lifestyle.
