I never knew what health meant until I got to experience and live in perfect balance. Seriously, I’m talking about a healthy condition of the mind, body and social life. Once you balance these three, or maybe you can make it four and add spiritual aspect, like what I do each day, you can make reassurance that you will live long everyday without feeling tired and stressed. I say ‘long everyday’ because we, human beings, tend to prolong the days when we feel like we haven’t accomplished anything significant in our lives yet and so the sense of urgency makes it look like the days are extending. Still, at the end of each day, we usually, if not always, feel disappointed searching for, perhaps, the biggest one-shot opportunity, wealth or power. I’m not saying dreaming these things to happen in someone’s life aren’t healthy. My point is, since we all are competing in this tough and rough ride, giving oneself the time to care for himself isn’t bad as the long wait for that huge break to strike.
As for me, I never forget to give myself a five-minute break for either sipping coffee while breathing deep on the rooftop of the office building or walk my bare feet on the sand when I was assigned in the West. At least one meal, I resign my tummy from eating meat and give it with fresh greenies or juicy fruits. The thing is, it’s not bad to eat protein because our body testifies its need for a certain amount of it. The trick there is to mix vegetables and fruits in your plate and chew them slowly to allow good digestion. Also, I want waking up in the morning, jog in the park and meet new people. If I will count the benefits I will get from what I’ve just mentioned, I will surely get discipline, good cardio and social interaction, all at an hour activity. If I can get healthy this way, you too can be healthy only in your own ways.
Eating better is the secret way in maintaining a fit and strong body. Here is the list of nutritious and healthy foods that I recommend in order to achieve optimum health and body wellness.
For fruits, I propose pineapples as a snack. In addition to its refreshing taste, it also contains high amounts of fiber which is good for digestion. I also suggest apples, oranges, bananas, cantaloupes, blueberries, peaches, grapefruit, strawberries and grapes. However, you have to avoid excessive consumption of fruits because some of them contain high sugar content.
Under whole grains, I advise multigrain cereals for breakfast which include oats, rye, barley and a lot more. Some of the other alternatives include brown rice and yams together with sweet potatoes, basmati, white potatoes and 100% whole wheat bread.
For vegitables, I suggest broccoli, tomatoes, onions, spinach, cucumbers, asparagus, mushrooms, peppers, zucchini and salad greens. There are also lean proteins such as chicken breast, turkey breast, egg whites, buffalo meat, lean ground turkey, flank steak, salmon and trout which can provide healthy source of protein for your body
There are various ways on how to modify dietary plans. I always put in mind to eat in moderation and do not try to over feed myself. I have also learned to cut down my consumption of low fat yogurt, skim milk and low fat salad dressings. It is also important to trim down sodium intake as well as red meats that are usually high in fat content together alcohol, brownies, full fat dairy products and a lot more.
You must exert time and effort when it comes to the foods you eat. It is essential to acquire some information regarding the right kind of foods that are available for various health conditions. In addition to weight, I also suggest to discipline yourself regarding the quantity and quality of food you consume.
