If you had to pick one thing as the KEY to staying healthy, what would that be and why?
Impossible to pick just one. It's about physical, and mental/ emotional health. One can't just pick one,
It is difficult to choose but love might be that thing.
Stress management, I believe is the key to staying healthy. One can have everything going for them, but stress is probably the number one health issue that simply can cause more problems for individuals than anything else. It is one of the major causes for most ailments which are fatal to us.
Without question, diet and exercise are two best lifestyle changes that one can do to improve health. Which is more important is debatable.
Some health authorities believe that exercise is the number one thing that you can do to improve your... read more
Every parts of our body requires a minimum about of exercise so if we can maintain it then it will be a great way to stay healthy.
Making the right food choice because, as the saying goes, you are what you eat. Your body, brain and attitude cannot function without proper nutrition and this is what makes everything else balance out in life.
Be mindful of your acid/alkaline balance in the foods you eat. If the body becomes either too acid or too alkaline, disease will be the result.
My answer would be that there is no key, to staying healthy.
Everything is dependant, on everything else. We need a good dose of luck and strong genetic background, too.
I find that age is "Inevitable, Mr. Anderson".
Avoid saturated fats, salt and processed sugar. Do exercise, like walking. We are built as creatures, to walk. Our ancestors roamed the globe, by walking. It is gentle on the body and it's not by accident that an hour's walk is called a "constitutional" one.
My belief is that we need both a healthy mind and body; as do and have, many others. Meditation helps, as does keeping one's focus on today and not tomorrow.
Avoid saturated fats, salt and processed sugar.
Early to bed and early to rise; an apple a day, etc. These are all good maxims for avoiding sickness. There's many of 'em. They're all relevant and part of staying healthy.
Avoid saturated fats, salt and processed sugar ....... and get some exercise!!
In my opinion the greatest key to staying healthy is to get enough sleep. I am talking about at least, MINIMUM, seven hours a night. Eight is even better. Sleep is vital for our immune system. Someone who goes week after week without adequate sleep eventually comes down with a cold. If there is a flu going around, a sleep deprived person is more apt to get it than someone who is getting enough rest.
On the heels of sleep, I would make sure I took at least one Vitamin C tablet a day and one multi-vitamin a day.
I really try to do the above. I have not had a cold in probably twenty-five years. It's not that I'm not busy. Nor am I lazy. I have discovered sleep is not a luxury, it is a NEED.
Tired people are not fun to be around. They yawn every two minutes. I have had friends conk out in front of me sitting across the table they are that exhausted. Sleep deprivation can also be dangerous. Many times there is an article in the paper where someone fell asleep at the wheel while driving with tragic consequences.
I have found I can totally focus on the important things right away in the morning, accompanied by a steaming hot cup of coffee, if I have had a good night's sleep.
My concentration is so much better than at night.
As stated before, sleep is vital to the immune system. It renews the cells in your body, which helps prevent disease. Plus a good night's sleep provides energy for the next day.
I would say don't apply stress to yourself there is enough being applied by outside sources. So getting enough sleep but not to much dealing with what uou can and ask for help when you need it. But please try not to use medicationn unless it is really necessary.
Commitment. No matter what strategy you use to stay healthy, without commitment to pursue the health regiment; you won’t get anywhere.
'faith' (in God completely) ...as its the key to solving all problems....& we can stay healthy not only physically but spiritually as well !
