There are a number of positive lifestyle factors that can encourage good health if you want to live a long and healthy life. Making the right choices related to diet, activity, and sleep can reduce your health risks. Some of the factors of good health are:
Eating a well-balanced diet: Diet plays an important role in maintaining good health. The quality of the food we eat and the nutrients it contains determines whether we simply survive or thrive
Regular Physical Activity: The key to overcome our lazy lifestyles is doing more physical activity, by sitting less, standing and walking more, housework, and gardening, and finding opportunities to move whenever possible.
Getting an adequate amount of sleep: Scientists told us several times that people need 7 to 8 hours of sleep to function properly. Yet many of us are now getting less than 6 hours of sleep every night. Not getting enough sleep is linked with every disease from obesity to diabetes to autoimmune disease to Alzheimer’s.
Maintaining a healthy body weight: Obesity is related to a shorter lifespan and it also increases the risk of many other chronic diseases. A normal range of body mass index is between 19 and 24.
