Updated on July 17, 2016

There is no perfect time to start living a healthy life than doing it now. It may be a struggle because of the many temptations such as food, being lazy, too much work and even poor lifestyle is just around the corner. I have fell for these traps many times but every time I took the fall, I just pull myself back up and back on track to living holistically.

Drinking Water

Though you can hear it from a Nutrition Inspector that you need to drink about 8 glasses of water, you can actually drink more depending on your personal condition. Your day-to-day activity can be dependent on the amount of water you drink. So if you are exercising more then you may require a lot drinking. This is true if you are also sick to constantly rehydrate your body and fight infection. However, you should only drink as much as you can and as your body needs because too much of it can also be harmful.

Focus on Proper Exercise

Doing an exercise is essential to keep you healthy and at the same time help you lose weight, gain muscles and build strength. It is very important to avoid being overweight, having heart problems and it also aids in proper digestion. But most of all, exercising at least 3-4 times week can help you have a peace of mind and have your mind and body attuned together.

Re-establish Your Game Plan

Although doing exercises can help you achieve your goals but if you have been doing the same set of exercises over time, you may want to reconsider your game plan. Lately, I thought of why I keep doing the same activity until I reached a plateau. So for you not to reach this period, think again why you’re doing this. Do you plan to be a body builder and have develop more muscles? Are you aiming for developing your speed that’s why you are doing cardio exercises? Experts say it is best to have an idea on what your goal is so that you can focus on achieving it while doing exercises.

Use of Balanced Diet

A balanced, healthy diet is very important to live a healthier and fitter lifestyle. There is no other alternative when it comes to consumption but you need to have a balanced diet. Make sure your food choices have the right amount of carbohydrates, protein and fats you need. Choose vegetables and fruits more over a lot of meat and pastry. There are different kinds of diets coming out these days and all you need to do is choose the best that works for you.

Taking Rest

Everyone needs to have a break once in a while. Break away from your busy work schedule and take time to enjoy your life. There are different kinds of pampering that may work for different types of people so do what makes your heart happy. For instance, take a break from the city that has been intoxicating your and go for a road trip and have camping with friends in the woods.

Proper Sleeping

Sleep is vital for you to be on top of your game when you go to work the following day. You need to have about 8 hours of sleep so that your body can function well and avoid diseases and illnesses. An adequate sleep will not only boost your immune system but it can also help you in the beauty department- lesser eyebags and glowing skin.

Today, there are a lot of exciting and modern tips for having a healthy lifestyle but I prefer to stay with the fundamentals. These are for me, the building blocks of achieving your optimum health.
