ABCs of Good Health

What Is A Healthy, Balanced Lifestyle?

Mostly, we understand the importance of a healthy, balanced lifestyle. It can keep our body fit and protect us against illness and disease. But it’s not only just about avoiding illnesses. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), a healthy lifestyle is also concerned with physical, mental and social well-being.

WHO believes that changes to our lifestyle and behaviour can improve our health and help us to live healthier, longer lives. So a healthy, balanced lifestyle should be high on our priority list. But are we sure that we know what one actually is? What changes in our behaviour do we need to make to have a healthy (or even healthier) lifestyle?

What Is A Healthy, Balanced Lifestyle?

A healthy lifestyle, according to the WHO, should include:

  1. Good Nutrition

    Nutrients are an essential part of how our body functions, so it’s important that we give our body all of the right ones. We should do this through a balanced diet, but supplements can help to boost certain key nutrients that we may not get enough of.

  2. Exercise

    Being active should involve some aerobic and cardiovascular activity every day. Even just a little daily exercise can help to keep us fit and our body mobile. It can also keep our brain healthy and boost our mood.

  4. Good Sleep

    We should be getting 7-9 hours of sleep a night according to The National Sleep Foundation. That’s because sleep is the time that our body spends rejuvenating and repairing. So a good night’s sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
