Good health is not something that you buy from a drug store or a department store, but can be achieved only by practicing a collective pattern of health-related behaviors, based on good choices made from available options. You will need to set out a pattern for health, and operate within it consistently, as a part of your daily or weekly routine, patterns such as eating right and exercising. Other benefits includes: Reduced health care costs, reduced illness and injuries, reduced pharmaceutical costs, and reduced doctors visits.

Managing your weight is the key to attaining all of the health benefits. A weight reduction of just 10 percent will significantly reduce risk of heart disease and other obesity-related illnesses.

Obesity is the second leading contributing factor in many childhood diseases, and adult problems, such as orthopedic disorders, sleep apnea, type II diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure and cholesterol, skin disorders, emotional and psychosocial problems, and more. Weightbearing exercise such as walking and strength training helps prevent osteoporosis and some research shows that participating in such activities can actually build bone density and begin to reverse the disease.

Other benefits include weight reduction, reduced tension and stress, improved sense of well-being, enhanced self-image, selfesteem and improved physical function.

Although drugs alone can often bring cholesterol down to normal levels, diet and exercise provide benefits that drugs don’t. They’ll lower blood pressure, reduce weight, and lower the risk of developing diabetes, all without side effects which often setup additional problems.

A sedentary lifestyle is a dangerous risk factor for disease. Exercise and a healthy diet helps the body use insulin more efficiently and can help control, alleviate and prevent many diseases. Exercise, not smoking, eating a high-fiber, lowfat diet, controlling body weight, and learning to cope with stress, all reduces the risk of heart disease.

Wellness is about being comfortable in your space: your body, your attitude, and your environment. A healthy lifestyle can greatly increase a person’s longevity. Knowing that catching something contagious like a cold or flu is totally avoidable, opens you to know that many other illnesses are totally avoidable, also. The issue for a lot of people today is that they are so busy working or taking care of others around them that they neglect their own health and wellness. Also, some simply don’t know any better.

Make sure you are healthy in your heart, your bones, and your brain, by taking the steps toward a healthy lifestyle. The best way to ensure good health is by taking care of it yourself. The stakes are high but the potential rewards are great: preventing premature death, unnecessary illness, and disability, controlling health care cost, and maintaining a high quality of life into old age.

With a healthy lifestyle, you don’t have to be selfconscious about those things that you otherwise would be if you didn’t care about your lifestyle. With a healthy lifestyle, you have control over your sleep patterns so that you feel generally well rested throughout the day. With a healthy lifestyle, everything works together to help other aspects of your lifestyle make sense and benefit you. Science has proven that healthy weight loss, healthy eating and a fitness routine make dramatic improvements in health, and help control common chronic illnesses like high choles- terol, high blood pressure, diabetes, stress, chronic pain, and general lack of stamina.

Another benefit is a steady flow of stamina and strength; you can work, play, and exercise to your heart’s content, enjoying your body’s flexibility. With a healthy lifestyle you enjoy a balanced and varied diet that provides your body its needed nutrients and energy as well. You have strength for training to build the muscles that support the bones and joints; thereby decreasing the risk of falls and fractures.

Cardiovascular exercise, also known as aerobic exercise, strengthens the heart muscle, thereby increasing the heart’s efficiency. As we age, our bones naturally begin to lose mass and strength. Weightbearing exercise such as walking and strength training helps slow the onset of and prevent osteoporosis, as some research shows that participating in such activities can actually build bone density and begin to reverse osteoporosis.

The next, but not least important, is the intake of water in the diet. Water, clean, pure, and filtered water is important for all the body’s processes to work properly, and can reduce hunger quickly. Certainly you know that water regulates the body’s’ fluid balance and adjusts our temperature. However, you may not know, that water facilitates proper functioning of the endocrine system, or that fluid retention is lessened by drinking more water, that the body uses more fat for fuel as the liver releases it, but, only if we have enough water in the body.
