What Is the Secret to a Healthy Life?

By Donna Stark

Have you been wondering what the secret is to living a long and healthy life? Do you feel as if you are missing out on some key information that the rest of the population already knows? If so, keep reading, because there is a secret. But don't get too excited. The parts that make up this secret are probably things you have already heard about. Want to know what they are? It all begins with the choices you make every single day.

Well-Balanced Diet

Eat the rainbow, you are what you eat, fill your body with clean energy ... you've been told these things over and over again so it shouldn't come as a surprise that a nutritious, well-balanced diet is part of the secret to good health. A healthy diet can lower the risk of serious medical conditions, such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and cognitive decline, so do your best to eat plenty of fruit, vegetables, fatty fish, and heart-healthy fats. Alternatively, try to avoid trendy diets, processed foods, and sugar as much as you can.

Quality Sleep

Get one step closer to optimal health and wellness by improving the quality of and prioritizing the amount of sleep you get every night. Sleep is the time your body uses to repair damaged cells, restore energy, and flush out toxins from your brain. You can improve the way you sleep by keeping your bedroom cool and dark, following a consistent bedtime routine, and minimizing distractions with a white noise machine.

Daily Exercise

What kind of lifestyle will you have if you don't engage in regular exercise? An unhealthy one, that's for sure! Daily exercise is one of the most important components of a healthy lifestyle. It can help reduce the risk of certain cancers, heart disease, joint dysfunction, and depression, and fortunately, it doesn't require much time or effort to do. With as little as 30 minutes a day, you can improve your chances of achieving the life you have always dreamed about.

Self-Discipline

Without some strong self-discipline in your life, you may find it difficult to reach all of your health and fitness goals. Discipline is important because it will help ensure you are making the right decisions for both your present and future health. No longer will that double-chocolate brownie pie sundae tempt you into entering a short-term love relationship with it, because with your self-discipline, it will be easy to stick with those apple slices and nut butter instead!

Learning the Secret

From the moment you wake up to the second you lie back down, your overall well-being depends on the decisions you make every single day, so make sure they are good! Doing so really is the secret to a long and happy life!
