Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living being. In humans, it is the general condition of a person’s mind, body and spirit, usually meaning to be free from illness, injury or pain (as in “good health” or “healthy”)
Those who don’t make time for their health will sooner or later have to make time
for their ailments.

It’s hard to be happy or successful if you are, quite literally, sick and tired all the
time. Living a healthy life provides the energy to do what you want to do and
what you need to do to live a great life. The following simple tips have been
compiled to remind you of the key principles of healthy living.

  • Exercise regularly. Even a short walk and taking the stairs each day can
    help. The more activity you do the healthier you will be. The healthier you
    are the more energy you’ll have. Ideally, engage in some form of
    appropriate, strenuous exercise at least 4-5 times each week.
  • Eat a balanced diet. As with exercise, a healthy diet will help provide you
    with the energy and zest you need to lead a really great life. There are
    many good sources of nutritional information available but in very simple
    terms, eat more fruit and vegetables, and fewer foods that are high in fats
    and salt.
  • Minimise caffeine intake (and ideally avoid altogether after about 4.00
    p.m.). As well as coffee, this includes tea, and most of the “soft”
    carbonated “fizzy” drinks that also include large amounts of sugar.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol. Although moderate amounts of alcohol have
    some advantages for health and wellbeing, excessive alcohol
    consumption is definitely not good. So stick to the safe drinking limits of 2-4 standard drinks for men, and 1-2 standard drinks for women, with at least2 alcohol free nights each week (note: a standard drink is much smallerthan most people think!).
  • Ensure you get enough sleep and rest. Most people realise that diet and
    exercise are important for health but many don’t realise how crucial good
    sleep is. If you don’t wake up refreshed and energised most mornings
    then seek help for this very treatable problem (see “Sleep Tips” handout).
    In addition, regular meditation or relaxation can provide enormous
    benefits for most people, as can taking time out on a regular basis to
    engage in pleasant and enjoyable activities.
  • Address the pressing issues in your life. If you have problems at work,
    problems with your partner, or anything that might cause you to feel
    stressed or worried, sorting them out is vitally important. If you are
    depressed or anxious, seek professional help. Remember, there are
    effective solutions for these problems.
