Keys to living a healthy life

Being healthy is one of the greatest gifts a man can have. To be healthy we as humans need to groom ourselves constantly. Many of us think that being physically fit will keep us healthy and strong. This could not be more further from the truth. In order to be healthy a person needs to be fit physically and mentally. Both these aspects need to be maintained at a high level in order for a person to be living a healthy and comfortable life.

Being physically healthy is of great importance if a person is to live a healthy life. Being strong and fit is very important. When I say strong and fit it does not mean that you need to develop your body like a body builder or a martial artist or a well defined athlete. When I say strong and fit it means that you need to have a body in overall good condition.

Working out is very important if you want to maintain a good physic. Every human being does not have the same body or the physical fitness level, so go meet a couple of trainers and see what they recommend. Try out some local gyms, if they try to sign you up immediately make an excuse, see how the other gyms provide facilities. Meet your family doctor. He/she will know about your physical fitness level better than any one else. Ask for you doctors guidance. Yoga is a good exercise method that not only keeps you fit physically but keeps your mind relaxed, strong and sharp. It has been recommended by doctors and trainers all over the world for any age. If you have any physical conditions please keep your trainer informed. He will give you a schedule accordingly.

Get a full body medical check up at least once a year. You will know exactly where you stand in terms of your health. Having a balanced diet is also very important especially if you're a little over weight. Eating healthy will keep your body clean and in running order. Eat a lot of green vegetables, fruits (fruits like oranges, apples, bananas, papaya etc), milk products (unless you're over weight or lactose intolerant). Keep it as natural as possible. Drink a lot of water. Water is one of the most natural cleaning agents in nature. When you drink a lot of water it will flush your body of all unhealthy chemicals and substances and will keep your system clean and clear.

The physical part is the easy one, being mentally fit is the though part. To be mentally fit, strong and sharp you need to be happy with who you are. Be at peace with your self. Too much stress and pressure from work and society could take you down faster than a rock going under. Keeping your mind strong can be a challenge. Meditation is one way you can keep your mind strong and fit. Yoga, archery, martial arts will help discipline your mind. Take up a hobby, relax, spend time with your family, listen to music, watching your favorite TV shows etc. will help you to refresh your mind. All said and done the best way for you to keep your mind healthy is to be happy with who you are and what you do. Once the mind is healthy and strong you body will follow and you will be living a happy and healthy life.
