Health and Activity
The secret to a long and happy life is in a healthy and active lifestyle! No, that doesn’t mean you have to spend the rest of your days chewing on carrot sticks, all it takes is being a little more conscious to change your physical and mental wellbeing.
There are several aspects to leading a healthy lifestyle, diet is important, obesity in UK men and women has risen by 10% in the last eight years, meaning a healthy diet is key. Our bodies crave energy given to us by good foods in order to get through long and tiresome days. Exercise is just as important, keeping active is not just for diets but should be a regular feature of our lives, just half an hour’s brisk walking three or four times a week will stop you feeling lethargic and is much healthier than a mug of coffee!
Mental health is just as important as physical health, try to avoid unnecessary stress and if you feel things getting on top of you, speak to someone. Stress can have serious and unnecessary health effects such as stroke or heart disease, regular exercise and a decent diet can help to reduce these risks.
