What does healthy living means to you? What does that concept trigger in your head? A healthy lifestyle can mean different things to everyone. For some, it may be perceived as something unattainable thinking that such a lifestyle is too difficult to maintain. While for some, it is already a part of what they practice regularly.
I personally think that there is some kind of an ideology behind the concept of a healthy lifestyle which makes it sound almost intimidating. So in my practice as a nutrition professional, I always put emphasis on realistic solutions. Let’s admit it, life is already challenging, so why make it more with choices that sound great on paper but may not be practical?
Because a healthy lifestyle is such a wide term, I thought that maybe I should dedicate the very first episode to my take on the basics of realistic healthy living.
I have come up with what I think to be the top 7 components of healthy living. These of course can be broken down into further files and folders but my intent is to keep it simple for now.
The following 7 components can serve as general points that we all could look into and see if a modification is in order.
