Here are healthy lifestyle tips you can incorporate into your daily life to promote your health and well-being. Some are tips that you should implement on a daily basis and others are minor changes you can make to your life to foster healthy living, said Rachana Kalpekar, Dietician, Zulekha Hospital, Dubai.

Exercise on the go

If you work in an office, get up every one hour and go for a walk. If you have an office with stairs, run up and down the stairs every couple of hours and avoid using elevator.

Plenty of fluids

Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water daily it will help you with the digestion of food, absorption of nutrients, and the elimination of toxins from your body.

Have good sleep

You should sleep six to eight hours per day. This will help your body to replenish itself and gives your body time to rebuild its cells. Lack of sleep makes you feel tired and affects your eating habits.

Simplify your choices

Instead of being excessively concerned with counting calories or measuring portion sizes, think of your diet in terms of colour, variety, and freshness. This way it should be easier to make healthy choices.

Start slow on changes

Changing everything at once usually leads to giving up on your new habit. Make small steps like switching from full fat products to low fat and high fiber. Once you are habituated to one change, add a new one.

Moderation is key

Eat everything but in moderation. The goal of healthy eating is to develop a diet that you can maintain for life, not just for a few weeks or months.

Dont skip your meal

Skipping meals lowers your blood sugar which brings on cravings for high carbohydrate, high calorie foods.

It is far better for you and your diet to eat three to four, even five small meals a day than one or two large meals.

Carry handy snacks

Snacking on something filling and nutritious beforehand can cut your hunger and also helps you not to skip meal. Always carry some fruits, snack bars, mixed nuts, low fat yoghurt with you.

Plot your goals

Believing you can achieve your goals is important, but you have to act too, by changing your eating habits, increasing your physical activity and so on.

  1. Healthy Lifestyle? I usually go on a medium intensity run for 60 minutes a day, four to five days a week. In addition, I do a total of at least 150 push ups and sit ups in each work out. I don’t consume more than 1500-1600 calories a day. I eat little to no junk food, and take my vitamins. I’m 18, male, and weigh about 164, around 14 to 15 percent body fat. Do I lead a healthy lifestyle? If there are ways to improve, let me know.

      Two of the healthiest diets in the world are the Mediterranean diet and the Okinawa diet.

      Yoga often helps for anxiety and depression as it promotes mental and physical wellbeing.

      The computer is not a healthy lifestyle for people. It programs us to thinking we can find everything on here. Jobs, pay bills, shop, everything! We can do that ourselves and it seems technology is taking the chores away from us, that can be easily done by human themself. The computer can help us though when we need to find information, imformation fast. Websites help us retain information, advertisements are just like commericals there just trying to sell or maniupulate us to buy whatever their advertising. The computer is not improving our healthy lifestyle. Peoples eyes can go out of sight and hurt very badly(like mine and i’m only 15 years old.) from years and years staring at the computer. The worst thing to stare at is a computer screen — I don’t know why I still do it for hours at end, but I do. The computer will never promote the quality of healthy lifestyle, its just not possible. The computer can convince people to stop drugs and alcohol but if you think about it would you rather have an obsession over the computer for hours at the day, you have to be near the computer you have to be on it then doing drugs or alcohol? The computer is just as bad addiction as alcohol and drugs. The computer cannot HELP us other then give us fast information when we need it. The computer although has so much information and so many untrusted sites you never know if what your reading is a lie. And I hope I get 10 points because I just wasted my time answering this long question, I hope you weren’t just asking this for the heck of this — I hope it was for some essay lol.

      Take care bye

  5. What Are Some Healthy Lifestyle Changes To Make? So I’ve started drinking more water. I drink Green, White, and Chai tea. I also bought the stainless steel water bottle, and I bike for about 20-30 minutes a day. I consider these healthy lifestyle changes. I was wondering if you could provide more suggestions along these lines.

      There are 5 elements in a healthy lifestyle.

      1. food
      2. exercise
      3. sleep
      4. happiness
      5. extra healthy things

      1. Food, we don’t really know that much about nutrition, we do know a blanced diet, with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables is good for you. Meat is pretty good, if it is lean and not eaten too often….ideally I might eat meat once or twice a week. A good healthy diet can include some indulgences.
      2. Exercise, you should do some. Though I don’t recommend routine exercise, cycle 2 or 3 times a week, join a social sports club, eg, tennis, go hiking on weekends, swimming is one of the best exercises for the whole body. If you vary your exercise, then you will enjoy it more and do more.
      3. Sleep. A lot of evidence says if you don’t get enough sleep you will have problems, eat more, metabolise your food differently and die young.
      4. Be happy, enjoy your life. Drink dance, eat chocolate, but not all day, everyday.
      5. Then there are all the little extras. eg, green tea (there is no such things as Chai tea….chai means tea, it is an indian word derived from the chinese word Cha, meaning tea), red wine, brocollie and beetroot, lots of things than can boost your body, ginger, garlice and hundreds of other things that you can add to your diet to make things a little better.

      Don’t obsess, don’t live by a book or a routine, just be healthy.

      Being unhealthy or sick stops you doing things you want to do. Being sick when you could have avoided it is a waste of other peoples time if they have to look after you

  7. What Would Happen If Everyone Started Living A Healthy Lifestyle Tomorrow? I’ll start the list:

    + Monsanto would go bankrupt.
    + McDonald’s and KFC would go bankrupt.
    + There would be a huge decline in heart disease and diabetes.
    + There would be a huge increase in commercial and private organic gardening.

    What else would happen if tomorrow everyone learned how to eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle?
