Healthy Living and The Health
Healthy Living is all that we all desire this, and to have health, wellness, quality of life and obviously success. The Health is primordial element so that we have a healthy life full and logically the health, because as we know without it everything becomes very limited, we lack the driving force of the vital energy in our body this and, in my point of view, the person healthy and whose functions of the organs are in perfect operation, and can therefore enjoy all the benefits that life can grant us.
A lot people have this question – How can we make it possible to permanently acquire the merit of health in a chaotic world, with so many things to do that makes time so short for us to devote ourselves to work, family and ourselves? We see that time is nowadays a priority. Exactly, I agree, but the solution is to know how to manage it wisely. But to reach these goals we must observe the environment in which we live, nourishment, habits, physical activities, our body and our mind “mens sana in corpore sano“. The set and balance of these goals will lead us to the good result we are looking for.
We have to take time to take care of ourselves. This is our survival. Firstly how is this really our health? For this we must adopt Preventive Medicine – doing annual check-up and follow the guidelines everything that is determined by the clinicians. Nobody better than our own to know our body, so for better diagnosis we must report everything we feel, ask for all the clarifications if we are feeling some abnormality, including propose alternative methods, called Alternative Medicine, that help in the treatment, if it is the case, such as Yoga, Hidrogym , Acupuncture, Reiki and so many things …
This is very important when we become the doctors our best friends, because after all they are the professionals who have all the infrastructures necessary to keep our health perfect.
What are you eating for your Health?
It is also very important to observe our eating habits. Step by step we must learn to nourish our body with healthy foods, avoiding excesses of fat and sugar ingested in the fastest meals found in self-services, snack bars, on the streets, that in the run of life we think they are the best and cheapest, even comes often accompanied by the offer of free soft drinks. We think that’s great – but it’s not. We only noticed when those clothes from last year, which we liked so much, we can no longer wear so tight. As a consequence the increase of cholesterol and the high sugar in our organism. Then we get crazy.
The healthy diet is an excellent option to keep our health balanced and our body in good shape. Organic foods, although more expensive than regular ones but they are the best. The fruits and vegetables do not contain agro toxins, gluten-free cereals ; meats, eggs, milk and their derivatives without hormones.
These foods are more expensive, we know, but we do not want to buy all the stock of the supermarket, because it would ruin or lose its validity. We must make a list of everything we really need for our consumption, so we do not commit excess or unnecessary waste. As we well know nowadays we should save money, although there is never much investment we make to our health.
Health Fat Foods
Fats are also part of healthy food, that are so-called mono and polyunsaturated, are responsible for the supply of energy, used in everyday life as they are also part of the constitution of our cells and hormones. They are found in vegetable oils such as olive oil; fish; avocado; and oil seeds such as chestnuts, walnuts, almonds. Particular attention should be paid to essential polyunsaturated fatty acids because the body cannot synthesize them and must obtain them through food. They are found in fish (mainly salmon, anchovy, sardines, tuna, herring); seeds and oils of canola, corn and sunflower; linseed; nuts. Omega 3 fatty acid has beneficial effects in the prevention of chronic diseases (cardiac, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis). Omega 6 fatty acid helps in reducing the levels of LDL (bad cholesterol) and total cholesterol and hormone regulation.
Saturated Fats – Saturated fats should account for less than 10% of the calories eaten during the day. These fats are present in foods of animal origin such as meats, milks, eggs, cheeses (especially the yellow ones), sweets, industrialized spices, besides being produced by the frying of vegetable oils. In this way, one should prefer cooked, roasted or grilled foods, avoiding frying; remove any apparent fat from meat and poultry skin prior to preparation; avoid consumption of sausages; read the label of foods, preferring those containing lower saturated fat content; prefer white cheeses and natural spices
Benefits of Water – Hydration in our body
Water – H2O – “The Nectar of the Gods“- We must have the habit of consuming this precious liquid at the rate of 2 liters or more daily. As we all know, the human body is made up of approximately 70% of this liquid, so the importance of always staying hydrated and replenishing fluids in our body. The water in addition to helping to hydrate, also eliminates toxins, like kidneys, because the greater ingestion of liquids increases the volume of urine passing through the kidneys, which dilutes the concentration of minerals, reason why they are less prone to crystallize and to form agglomerates the called kidney stone. As in the intestines, the water will “solve” the fibers consumed in the feeding, causing the excrement in our intestine to increase and to have an easier consistency to be evacuated.
The lack of water in the human body causes dehydration, which depending on the degree can be lethal.
We should always have a bottle of water with us, which will greatly help the habit of daily water consumption
According to Aristotle – (384-322 BC) important Greek philosopher, one of the thinkers with the greatest influence in Western culture, “Happiness and Health are incompatible with Idleness”
Physical fitness is associated not only with good nutrition, but also with physical activity. According to the World Health Organization, we must reserve at least 150 minutes of physical activity daily, and we can divide them in the best way possible during the day, whatever the exercise that suits our body better. It is very important to understand that to get a body fit is indeed commendable when one considers health and self-acceptance a priori.
ATTENTION: Take care your body – We cannot forget that health is a human right so must love and watch over our body like a baby, this perfect vehicle that was given to us for our evolution, with an immeasurable source of healthy energies in all our cells, atoms and molecules, a wonderful treasure, bequeathed to us all.
