Staying active is essential to maintaining a healthy weight, a healthy heart and an overall healthy life. So make no excuses, find at least 15-30 minutes every day to do some exercise and get your heart-rate up. If you can’t get to the gym, just do some exercise from home. Some suggestions include: taking the stairs instead of the lift, walking instead of driving your car etc.
It is a well-known fact that maintaining a healthy body often helps to maintain a healthy mind. However, with the pressures of life, we often do not realize that we are neglecting our emotional and psychological health. Some additional tips for maintaining a healthy mindset include:
- Get help when you need it – if you are feeling stressed, anxious, sad etc. please consult your family doctor and talk to him/her about it.
- Support – try to socialize and surround yourself with family and friends.
- Relax – relaxation exercises and prayer can improve your state of mind and outlook on life.
