Living healthy life style actually means according to me leading an active life without any serious sickness mentally and physically as well.
That to me is exactly right, but how does one actually get to the point of living what is known as a healthy lifestyle. It is very true that so much goes into capturing that feeling. I really just wondering how others go about getting to that point.
Its for me like feeling happy with life and all healthy from inside. That's what matters most for me. I try to feel the abundance of Universe from inside and when have that content with life feeling I am happy to know that, I am healthy.
Can just feeling happy from inside and with your life be all though? Just being happy won't allow the body to function correctly. Being satisfied with life has no effect on if the body is going function correctly. So much really goes into it.
I agree completely . When one feels happy one have to be physically and mentally fit and sound according to me. Thank you.
Exactly right. I am an exercise science major and just want to get other peoples perspectives on what they believe leads to a completely healthy lifestyle. I want to see what other beliefs are.
When you do things that are positive for your body, and minimize any things that are taking from your body, you are living a healthy lifestyle. Things that are positive for your body: nutritional foods- think fresh fruits, veggies, non-hormone meat, organic free-range eggs, lots of filtered water; exercise- anything active that you enjoy and gets your body moving and your blood pumping; limited time in the sun- boosts Vitamin D levels; minimize stress and learn to handle it better; balance hormones; and detox to rid your body of toxins that keep it from functioning optimally.
When you can sleep well, have good energy, have healthy skin that glows, rarely get sick, and feel whole, you are living a healthy lifestyle and can help to teach others how to live healthy as well.

Absolutely right. It is amazing how many people believe that being completely healthy means only exercising and eating right, when actually many more aspects have to go into it. Family, home life, happiness with career, overall happiness, etc.
I couldn't agree more jfleck24! All areas of our life contribute to us leading a healthy lifestyle or not.
Healthy lifestyle means to me as eating the right balance diet and doing some form of exercises.
I have regular supplements, walking for at least 40 minutes a day and eating less fatty food.
Healthy lifestyle means that we are careful about our health in all aspects of life activities. The lifestyle with utmost importance to physical and mental health means healthy lifestyle. if you want to lead healthy lifestyle always ask yourself following three questions:-
Is this food item is good for health or not?
Am I exercising adequately or not?
What steps should I take to manage stress?
Is my working/living environment is healthy or not?
jfleck, the answers are going to be highly subjective - both as to what it means and how to get there - with just some common themes. Most would probably agree that to stop smoking would be a step towards living a healthy lifestyle. Yet when we moved to Germany three months ago, we were surprised by how much and how many people smoke here. We started talking about the smoking with two newly-met people in a bio store (like a natural food store in America). The first said his mother is in her 90s and smokes a pack a day and has an active mind and body (so that means smoking is not unhealthy.) The second person excused the smoking as people just wanting to be cool. In another bio store, the owner said he smokes three cigarettes every day, but they are organic from America.
One of the respondents in this Q & A thread referred to eating a certain type of meat. That is fine, but for me, a former meat eater, eating any type of meat would not be living a healthy lifestyle. I don't want to put the dead, rotting flesh of animals into my body. Whatever people say about their humane treatment, using animals for food feels not right. Neither to take the milk of goats or cows which is intended for their young. Still I eat some goat cheese, yet it is not my ideal.
Not self-righteously, we just bought a mega blender and started making smoothies from fresh whole produce and others from tofu and cocoa powder. That feels the best diet for us, so far, in general. Another general tip is to ignore the rules of nutritionists and listen to your own body first as you may already know. I found the 'Eat Right for Your Type' suggestions to be pretty right on with my experience.
There is much more to address in living a healthy lifestyle. It goes beyond eating and exercising habits as you said. My recent hub on 'How to Live a Fulfilled Life - Authentically' goes into more depth. Best to you on your inquiring journey.
Yep your answer gets into exactly what I am saying. Like I said there is so much that goes into being healthy that nobody even thinks about. I like your point that different things will work for different people and yes everyone has their own ideas.
Let us say for the sake of this discussion that we are both body and spirit. It follows that we need to feed both. The inner feeding is based on love of truth or Something Higher, call it what you are comfortable with. Feeding that aspect of the being requires spiritual practices: Prayer, love, service, praise, singing, scriptures and the like.
The body, being an insrument or temple of the spirit, would obviously need to be looked after. So food (balanced), clothing, warmth, shelter, cleanliness, air and exercise, as well as social interaction, etc, are very necessary. All these would help with a healthy lifestyle.
As we go higher up the ladder, we will realise that everything outer depends on the life lived in God and so purity, human decency and other aspects of life that make us strong, are also necessary. Narrowness is death, expansion is life. Always walk towards the Light and away from darkness; anything that makes you weak, reject like poison. This will enhance a healthy lifestyle or a life lived in God.
