Better Mental Health

Our mental health can be influenced by many factors.

Depression is one of the most common mental health issues that people suffer with.

More Studies are being conducted these days and they are finding that a nutritious diet (1) is not just good for the body, but that it is also good for brain health.

Our diet is possibly the most powerful intervention we have. By helping people to change their diets, we can improve their mental health (2) and decrease their risk of psychiatric disorders.

Exercise can help you to concentrate better and for longer enabling you to make better decisions also helping you to chill out and relax easier, which aids with mental health disorders

 

Sleep Better

Being physically active requires you to use more energy, and that then helps you to feel more tired and ready to sleep at the end of the day.

Research shows that exercise especially regular exercise, can help you to sleep for a longer length of time as well as improving the quality of sleep.

What you choose to eat and drink on a daily basis effects how well you sleep. Drinking chamomile or Passion flower tea, if you are not a tea drinker then you could have milk instead eating almonds, walnuts, bananas, turkey and fatty fish are all ideal if you struggle to get enough sleep.

 

 

 

Live Longer

As we go through life we tend to do certain things, the vast majority of people have children and when they grow up they have kids of their own. By staying healthy you are adding years onto your life.

This means you will have a better chance of seeing your children, finish school, go to college, go to University, get a job, get married.

You will be around when your grandchildren and great-grandchildren come along.

By eating healthy and taking regular exercise you will still be able to run around with them and play. This will be very enjoyable for you all. You may even see them get married and have their children.

People who do not look after their well-being can still live to a ripe old age, the difference being in the quality of life. Are they on oxygen permanently, are they riddled with Arthritis, are they bed bound.

There are no guarantees except taxes and death. Following the advice gives you a much better chance of being around and being able to enjoy it more.

 

 

Avoid Disease And Illness

If, you follow Medical advice throughout the ages there are certain things that have not changed, Exercise and eating a healthy diet.

A healthy lifestyle helps you to avoid hypertension (high blood pressure), promote healthy cholesterol levels, reduce the risk of diabetes, and keep your heart in good shape.

Another benefit is your skin will be a lot healthier with less chance of getting pimples or acne.

In my opinion one of the best reasons to do exercise and practice healthy eating is it can help to reduce free radicals as well as promote the release of toxins associated with disease and infections. Meaning you feel healthier, there is nothing worse than feeling unwell on a regular basis.

 

More Energy

I’m Pretty certain that when you are feeling tired, the last thing you want to do Is to exercise, but even if all you do is a quick walk around the block, participating in a Zomba class or a gentle yoga class can give you the boost that is needed to keep going through the day.

The main reason for this is Exercise stimulates the release of the feel-good endorphins that not only make you feel better but also up your energy levels.

Eating more fruits and vegetables as opposed to sugary foods also boosts the energy levels.

Another important factor is to keep yourself hydrated, preferably by drinking lots of water.

 

 

 

Less Stress

By eating a diet to include Complex carbohydrates, such As oats, barley, sweet potato, brown rice, black beans, green peas and fruits, can help you to reduce stress by encouraging the brain to increase serotonin production and stabilizing blood pressure.

Exercise as well as other physical activity’s produce endorphins which are chemicals in the brain that act as natural painkillers that help with the ability to sleep, which in turn reduces stress.

 

 

 

 

Lose Weight

Eating a balanced diet and doing regular exercise helps to keep you at your ideal weight.

Not everyone eats healthy all the time or takes part in regular exercise, if you don’t do these things you can gain weight.

As, you get older it is much harder to lose the weight.

 

 

Keep Medical Bills Down

Living a healthy life style means you are not visiting the Doctors on a regular basis.

Eating a healthy diet and partaking in regular exercise will lead to a much healthier lifestyle, therefore you will not be so susceptible to picking bugs and other common illnesses up that are going around.

Studies have shown that Even if you live longer than someone who is clinically obese you will save money, because an obese individual is going to have a lot of health issues, therefore spending more time in the doctors or hospital.

 

Health Matters

 

Inspire Others

Younger people are often inspired by their grandparents, especially those who are still active physically and mentally.

Grandparents tend to spoil their grandchildren and they have more time than the parents to do fun activities with.

Children love to hear stories and look at old photos, seeing their Nan or grandfather in different clothing styles and hearing about life at that time is fascinating as well as inspiring.

I loved dancing with my grandparents, being taught by them to waltz, foxtrot, jive and do the Charleston.

 

 

 

Better Sex Life

in a study carried out with 600 men, conducted by researchers at Boston University, it was found that walking for 2 miles per day can significantly reduce the risk of erectile deficiency (ED). Eating a healthy diet can also lead to a better sex drive.

For example, a diet rich in heart-healthy Omega-3’s (from fish and leafy green vegetables) and foods rich in L-Arginine, such as cashews, walnuts, root vegetables, garlic, ginseng, soybeans, chickpeas and seeds can help boost circulation and therefore can improve erectile response.

My Final Thoughts

Staying healthy can help you in a myriad of different ways.

Exercise and diet play such a huge part in the physical and mental health of everyone as well as aiding you to live longer, having a better sex life, helping you to stay at a healthy weight or to lose weight, also giving you more Energy, less stress and improved mental health.

  1. Lisa, great post! Excellent information. As someone who owns a nutritional supplementation company and has been around the fitness and nutrition industry for over 25 years, you have nailed these 10 reasons to make your health and wellness a priority.  Unfortunately, as you know, most people have a very shortsighted approach to their lifestyle and typically do not think of the long-term benefits or effects of making their health a priority. 

    If it any point you would like to consider collaboration of some sort, please let me know. We are always looking to work with like-minded people to spread the word. Keep up the great work. Stay healthy.

  2. I can totally relate to your post. Many years ago I was burned out because of stress and insomnia. It affected my whole life. It made me think how important our energy is. Without it we can not do much. To get energy you need to do all the advice you give in your post. You need sleep, exercise, healthy food, connecting with others to feel well and healthy. It can be difficult, but it is all a state of mind. A decision to be healthy. Great post.

    This is a very engaging article you have written here and equally excellent 10 reasons you provide for all of us to be eating right and doing daily exercise and that as you rightly say are the most important two things we should do to obtain the benefits you enumerate. Unfortunately, this requires great will power on the exercise side and increasingly affordability on the diet side as food prices are increasing at a rapid rate. Hence the obesity levels around the world. If everyone listened to your kind advice then we would have happier people living more fulfilled lives. Great Article!
