Writing is a hobby which I have picked up again after being away from it for four decades actually, while I was busy with a career.

The word optimum is an adjective that means the best, or most advantageous. When you think of this word with respect to health, what one is trying to indicate is the sort of lifestyle that is the best for maintaining good health? What then are the optimum health basics that can assure a person, which if followed will enable any person to be relatively free of sickness and disease.

Health Basics

Every person comes to life with inherited genes that determine the body structure, and its ability to remain free from injury and disease. Even so, it is possible to create an environment that helps to build immunity and thus govern one’s physical condition. These can come from:

  • The air you breathe

  • The water you drink

  • The food you eat

  • Exercise

  • Relaxation

Proper Breathing Is an Essential

Air is the first essential of life and care must always be taken to see that the air you breathe is free of pollutants. Many eastern cultures also emphasize on the need to breathe properly as this is what is believed can give you vital life force energy. It is suggested that deep breathing exercises practiced for 10 minutes, twice a day, can go a long way and be very beneficial to health.

The Water of Life

Every living cell in our body does require water, besides air and nutrients. This water acts as a solvent for the toxins that do enter your body from food, air, and other means, and allows the body to flush out unwanted waste. Make sure the water you drink is always the purest, even if this means that you have to install a whole house filtration system to ensure this.

Nutrition for Energy

A body needs nutrition for it to get the energy needed for daily activities and even for the body’s own processes of digestion, cell growth and elimination of waste. This nutrition can come from the food that you eat, and the secret to optimum health is to eat food that has a high nutritional value and the right combination of vitamins and minerals. Processed food is deficient in these and has many other additives, which cannot be of any benefit to the body. You also need to eat the correct proportions of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, so that your body gets all the energy that it needs. Fruits, vegetables, and meat can provide all this, along with cereals. Decide on the combinations that you find the most palatable and never overeat or go on a fast.

Exercise Regularly

A healthy lifestyle that constantly strives to ensure that the calories you consume are all used up, can only come from a regular regime of exercise. To maintain optimum health, it is important that you exercise daily. This will ensure that your muscles are also in the best of shape, and this, in turn, can lead to better metabolism that can ensure that you have enough energy.

Rest and Health

The body cells need to be constantly replenished, and this process is assisted if your body gets enough rest and relaxation. Every human body has its own rhythms, and its need for sleep and you must ensure that you never interfere with these rhythms and see that you sleep at regular times and allow all the tenseness to go from your muscles, through the rest that they get.

In Conclusion

Ensure that you are always in control of these basics and there is no reason why you will not be able to maintain your body in very good health. Breathe the right air and breathe properly, drink the right amount of pure water, eat food that is of good nutritional value, and get enough sleep, and there is no reason why you will not be able to enjoy good health that can also be of help to you in your career.
