Living a healthy lifestyle


In today’s fast paced world many of us struggle to find the right formula on how to lead a healthy lifestyle. One of the main factors contributing to a healthy lifestyle is the way we eat. Yes, the way we eat.

In our country eating outside has become a norm, as we can frequently see many Malaysians eating outside at restaurants and hawker stall with families especially on the weekends.

What we fail to realise is eating healthily plays a vital role in contributing to a  healthy life.

There are many ways we can improve, even by simple methods like consuming food at a slower rate.

A balanced diet is also essential for a healthy life.

Food such as butter, whole milk and cream, animal fat and cooking oil high in cholesterol should be avoided at all cost.

Home cooked meals are essential for living a healthy lifestyle.

We all must have probably heard countless time that a healthy body comes with an excellent mind. Most of us will agree with that statement . But a healthy body comes when we  do our exercise regularly. Exercising regularly is very good for us to keep our body active and stay alert all time.

Getting the right amount of exercise can actually boost up our energy levels and improving our mood. Studies also have found that by doing our exercise regularly can help women and men as well keep their bone strong. This is important for woman especially because women are prone to a medical condition call osteoporosis, a condition that weakens the bone structure when aging.

We also will feel better and stronger if we do our exercise regularly.

Another unhealthy habit that common in our society now is smoking. It is not something new for any of us that smoking is actually bad for our health but yet millions of people all over the world choose to ignore the warning that just cannot be disputed.

Smoking, has been directly linked to various disease that can kill human. Chronic disease such as lung cancer, heart failure and emphysema are one of the many diseases that can befall to us if this smoking habit cannot be contained.

A healthy lifestyle is built from a sound religious and moral knowledge. This factor is important in our effort to lead a healthy lifestyle. A good practice of religious and moral value among us will create a balanced and stable lifestyle. In practicing religious and moral value one should have moderation in our daily life. This includes moderation in eating, moderation in socializing and basically in our life.

We also can instill the religious and moral value in our way of life and be thankful for what we already have. In this way we can recognize and appreciated for what others had done for us and for what we have done to our self. Then with our God given ability we will strive to do more in cultivating our energy towards the greater goal in completing our life as a a good citizens with a  definite objective.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle will help us to contribute efficiently to our surrounding. It is also keep our spirit alive and provide us with much needed energy for us to work and give the best effort to our country that we love.

At the same time our continuous healthy lifestyle will surely give the country an extra boost to increase country income . Last but not least take a few moments to chill out and give you some time out from the buzz of your busy life. It can help ease your stress level and this will sure help you a lot. Until then I wish you all in a good health always and hopefully after reading this each one of us will put our best effort to go towards a healthy lifestyle for the betterment of our future and also country progress towards a healthy community.
