What are the Benefits of Living A Healthy Lifestyle?

What does it mean to live a healthy lifestyle? It means eating healthy and exercising regularly . Which can be challenging for almost everyone. It's tough to find the time and motivation to devote to a healthy diet  . Eating healthy mainly consists of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grain foods, lean proteins and some low fat or nonfat dairy products.  Also Exercise and physical activity are great ways to feel better, boost your health and have fun.

       For most healthy adults, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends these exercise guidelines:

  • Aerobic activity. Get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a week, or a combination of moderate and vigorous activity. The guidelines suggest that you spread out this exercise during the course of a week. To provide even greater health benefit and to assist with weight loss or maintaining weight loss, at least 300 minutes a week is recommended. But even small amounts of physical activity are helpful. Being active for short periods of time throughout the day can add up to provide health benefit.

  • Strength training. Do strength training exercises for all major muscle groups at least two times a week. Aim to do a single set of each exercise using a weight or resistance level heavy enough to tire your muscles after about 12 to 15 repetitions.
