We have all heard the phrase ‘Health is Wealth’, but how often do we take this seriously? All of us at some point or the other have taken our health for granted. Only when our health begins to deteriorate do we realize how long we spent leading it to that stage, despite knowing that our actions would lead to severe consequences.
Being healthy does not mean just looking thin or fit. An individual is healthy only if he is physically and mentally healthy.
- Physical Health:
Physical health is majorly related to what keeps the body functioning effectively, it depicts the external well-being of an individual.
- The importance of consuming a healthy balanced diet is enough stressed upon already. A balanced diet is one comprising of essential fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, and dairy.
- Avoid junk food completely. Indulging and giving into your cravings is acceptable once in a while. However, it is recommended to cut off completely from oily, fried and fatty foods.
- Do not follow fad diets and avoid eating the essential nutrients your body requires. A balanced meal is one that contains essential elements from all food groups. Most people tend to believe that carbohydrates are fattening and avoid them completely. It is important to know the difference between good carbs and bad carbs and consult with a dietician who would best recommend a suitable diet.
