Healthy Lifestyle

Let’s define what we believe a Healthy Lifestyle is all about. What do we understand when we say healthy lifestyle or healthy living? Can we be healthy at any age? YES – there is no reason why you can not be fit and healthy and enjoy your life.

Overall health is best achieved through a combination of mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being and living a life of moderation in all things.

Physical health is where we refer to the total health of the body and the best way to achieve this is through a regular exercise program, eating a healthy diet and having the correct amount of rest and sleep each day.

Mental health can best be described as a measure of our emotions and the absence of any mental disorder. This requires that we try and reduce our stress level or at least learn to cope with the stresses of our every day living. A natural way to reduce stress is have a regular body massage.

Social well-being is mixing and enjoying the company of family and friends. We all need inter-action with other people, as conversation is one good way to stimulate our brain. The maintenance of strong social ties with friends and family is often linked to good health and longevity.

It is very important when thinking of a state of healthy living to consider other factors such as environment, lifestyle, relationships and our access to medical services if we do get ill. Environmental factors have to be considered because it can have a devastating affect on a person’s health. We are all aware of the people who have been exposed to radiation as in Chernobyl and the problems now, found with workers who were exposed to asbestos, who now suffer from a multitude of problems including mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Enjoy Your Job

Another important part of your life that can affect your health is your job or your workplace. Having a job that you enjoy and where there is little or no stress, is very important. You spend most of your waking hours at your place of employment. Stress has a negative effect on the body and causes high blood pressure and this in turn can cause diseases such as stroke and Type 2 diabetes.

We spend most of our lives at work so the best thing we can do is look at what we are doing now and what do we want to do in the future. If you want to change careers, it is as easy as planning and setting goals, to acquire the new skills you may need. It may take a few years but you can achieve anything you want. Think about it, if you think it will take time to development new skills or improve on those that you have – you are right, but if you do not do anything to improve, you will be stuck in the same place with the same problems and the same frustrations. This is not good for your health.

Healthy living today is just that. Follow your dreams and enjoy your life and following a healthy diet and a regime of exercise and fitness that will allow you to maintain your good health.

Your Eyes

You eyes are very valuable and we need to care for them to help maintain our vision. It is advisable to rinse our eyes with water every day and if you are experiencing any irritation you may want to rinse them more than once. Rinsing them regularly will help detoxify and remove anything that could irritate them. This is particularly important if you live in a dusty or polluted area.

Wearing sunglasses, when out in the sun or when driving, will also help protect your eyes. It is also a good practice to carry out eye exercises. They will help strengthen the eyes.

If you are experiencing any difficulties with your vision, make an appointment with an optometrist and go and have your eyes checked. It is not painful in any way to have an eye examination and it could prevent you from having trouble. You will be asked to read a chart and an Optometrist will examine your eyes to see that your eyes are healthy, inside and out, and they will also check for diseases such as cataract and glaucoma.   If at the examination, some type of problem is detected they will formulate a plan to remedy it . If you fail to be able to read the chart, you will be prescribed glasses.

Having a healthy lifestyle will also help protect your vision. Some people go through life and never wear glasses while sometimes children are prescribed glasses very early in life. Children should also be encouraged to rinse their eyes and wear sun glasses when exposed to the sunlight.

Unfortunately some of us inherit our eye problems from our parents but that should not prevent us from taken as many precautions as possible. We now have people who are looking at computer screens all day as part of their work routines. This is where you must take regular breaks away from your computer.

Always get a good nights sleep as this is also a time when you eyes need that rest and relaxation as well as the rest of your body.
