We live in a world where not many of us have time to keep healthy or stay fit. Is it really that important to eat healthily? The answer to that question is yes! And it is much easier than you’d first think!


Healthy living is a combination of so many things, some psychological, some physical. The first step to living a healthy life is to think positive. The next is the need to motivate your self to take part in any fitness-style activity. It is all very good and well saying, “I will take up fitness as part of my every-day routine,” but you need to actually motivate yourself to do it (Null 2007).


Fitness is one of the first steps you can take to live a healthy lifestyle. Just a small amount of exercise everyday, whether it be taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or walking to the next bus stop, will make all the difference. You don’t have to be a fitness freak to be healthy; you just have to partake in a small amount of physical exercise everyday to maintain a good level of fitness. Not only will it improve your lifestyle and make for a healthy living, but you will also find that this added amount of exercise will also increase your energy levels, meaning you will feel less lethargic during your day.


You may not enjoy spending hours working out at the gym or running for hours on end, and the news is, you don’t have to, there is a physical activity out there to suit everybody. Swimming is not only relaxing, but also good for not only losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle; it also improves muscle definition and provides a healthy, toned looking figure.


Exercising is only way in which you can obtain a healthy living. Eating correctly and providing your body with right levels of nutrition is also good. In today’s society, so many people just simply do not have the time or money to buy and prepare fresh, healthy food everyday. However, it doesn’t have to be as difficult as you would first imagine ( 2007 [online source])


Something simple, like swapping your mid-day chocolate bar or fissy drink to a fruit juice or an apple, will again, improve your health and help you maintain the right level of calories that your body needs.


You don’t have to starve yourself to death in order to be nutritious. It’s just a case of eating the right foods. Obviously, eating a lifetime’s supply of chocolate in under a week is never going to get you the body, or level of fitness you desire! It’s basically down to common sense. Fruit and vegetables are healthy; therefore you should eat more of them. You should ideally be aiming for at least five portions of fruit and vegetables per day. You should also aim to drink at least eight pints of water per day (Jensen 2000).


Being nutritious is not as hard ad you may think. Changing a few simple things will do you the world of good. Cut down on sugar in your tea; change from butter to margarine, even something as small as having low-fat versions of drinks and condiments will make a difference.


Obviously, what works for everybody else, may not necessarily work for you. If you want to get the optimum levels of nutrition for your body, you could see a dietician that will tell you, explicitly, what you should be eating, and what you should be cutting down on. You can also read books and websites dedicated to helping you lose weight and reach optimum fitness. All you need to do is find a way that works for you.


Nutrition and fitness is essential for a healthy living. Not only will you look and feel good, but by eating the right things and doing the right amount of exercise, you could also lower your chances of getting some pretty serious life-threatening diseases. Heart disease, for example, is one of the biggest killers in overweight people. It’s your decision, at the end of the day, whether you want a healthy living or not, but you should be aware, that it is not difficult and you can do it!
