A healthy lifestyle requires a balance of health-related factors. It includes not only physical factors, but also emotional, psychological, and spiritual ones. This means taking time to exercise, time with friends and family, quiet time, leisure time, and keeping a balanced diet.
Today’s workplace is crowded with pressures that leave little space for a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Over the decades Americans have become increasingly busy with less and less given to true recreation. This has resulted in more time shopping, a diet with overly-processed and often very unhealthy foods, more driving, less time with kids, and more television, video games, and other computer-related activities.
Remember to go for walks in parks. Read books. Play games with your kids. Listen to beautiful music. Visit with your neighbours. Garden. Make meals at home. Take pictures. Tell Stories. Be kind. Recycle. And remember to breathe.
