Health and Nutrition

Health and nutrition go hand in hand - one is incomplete without the other.  One cannot be healthy without proper nutrition and not to forget the role of regular exercise to maintain our health in optimum condition. Let us go through each of them in detail.

Good nutrition

Good nutrition means consuming the necessary nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that the body needs to work its best. Plan your daily meals and snacks to include a variety of nutrient-dense foods that besides giving proper nutrition arelow in calories as well.  Here’s your good food guide

·       Eat plenty of fruit and preferably whole fruit instead of juices to get the benefit of natural fiber in fruits

·       Add a good amount of all varieties of veggies to your meals every single day.

·       Make sure to eat a sufficient amount of whole grains - at least half of the cereals, bread, and pasta you eat should be made from whole grains.

·       Go for low-fat or fat-free milk – these are rich sources of calcium and vitamin D to help keep your bones strong

·       Choose lean meats with less fat and fewer calories but are good sources of protein. Also try other sources of protein such as beans, tofu, fish, etc.

 Along with good nutrition, exercise plays a major role to keep you fit inside-out. The health benefits of regular work-out are hard to ignore. Everyone benefits from exercise, irrespective of their age, sex, or physical ability. Plus, the benefits extend beyond the physical health to our mental health as well. Regular exercise not only helps lose weight but also aids to maintain a healthy weight. Besides, it helps combat various health conditions, improves mood, promotes better sleep, sparks up your sex life, and more.

 Lastly, good health is incomplete in the absence of optimal mental health. in today’s society, stress is our constant companion and we often end up asking ourselves how we should manage stress. It is very important to manage stress as it can have an overwhelming effect on our physical and mental well-being. Learn to manage day-to-day stress in your life by practicing regular meditation, deep breathing exercises, and connecting with others among others.
