We usually take good health for granted – as long as we’re fit and healthy! However, especially as we get older, we need to pay more attention to our body and our health needs to ensure we stay that way. But even when we’re young, we still need to stay fit if we want to enjoy life to the full – and continue living to enjoy it!
These pages are filled with snippets of help and advice to help keep you fit and healthy.
If we were to boil down all the tips into a few concise pearls of wisdom, they would be these:
- Exercise regularly, preferably every day
- Eat a balanced diet
- Avoid junk food and processed food, too
- Don’t smoke and avoid smoky areas
- Drink alcohol only lightly and not every day
- Drink plenty of fresh water
- Avoid stress
It’s basically common sense, simply things we know we should do but implementing just a few of the tips will be of benefit.
We’ve arranged the tips in these pages into categories but there is some overlap.
You will also notice that some tips seem to contradict each other! The reason for this is interesting. Many researchers are sponsored by specific companies who have, er, an agenda. So quite often researchers are looking for a particular result and will gear their research towards producing that result. If you see what I mean.
This does not necessarily mean that their results are incorrect or invalid. Its possible that two or more research teams could look at the same thing in two different ways and come to different conclusions. A good example of this is chocolate. Dark chocolate can be of benefit to your heart, they say – but eating too much will certainly be detrimental.
So, when looking through the tips, be sensible – and stay healthy!
