A healthy lifestyle can be achieved by doing the following things on a regular basis:
Exercise -- striking a balance between cardio (aerobic) and Strength/Resistance Training
Eating healthy foods -- fresh fruits and vegetables, high fiber whole grains, and lean sources of dairy, fish, meat poultry
Avoiding unhealthy foods -- especially processed foods high in fat and sugar
Managing your stress levels -- engaging in relaxing hobbies and recreational pursuits
Getting enough sleep -- in most cases 6 to 8 hours sleep per night
Drinking sufficient plain water -- in most cases at least 8 glasses per day
Keeping an optimistic view on life
Laughing, having fun, and keeping a sense of humor!
The rewards of leading a healthy lifestyle are too numerous to mention. Working with a good Personal Trainer can help you re-focus your life and begin to address developing some of the above habits in your life.
