Healthy Lifestyle For a Healthier Life



A healthy lifestyle consists of holding beliefs and engaging in activities that create better health for you in regards to social relations, consumption, entertainment, and other activities or habits.

The behaviors and practices within lifestyles are a mixture of habits, conventional ways of doing things, and reasoned actions which generally reflects an individual's attitudes, values, or world view.

For example, a "green lifestyle" means holding beliefs and engaging in activities that consume fewer resources and produce less harmful waste (i.e. a smaller carbon footprint), and deriving a sense of self from holding these beliefs and engaging in these activities.

The lifestyle, activities, and beliefs you choose are directly reflected in your quality of health and wellness. If you want health you need to hold on to beliefs and engage in activities that promote health and disregard those that tear down.

Living a healthy lifestyle might or might not increase your maximum or average lifespan, but it certainly can increase your quality of life.

Average lifespan is determined by vulnerability to accidents and age-related afflictions such as cancer or cardiovascular disease.

Extension of average lifespan and a "better" quality of life can be achieved by good diet, exercise, a good night’s sleep and avoidance of hazards such as smoking or other tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, drug abuse, and excess eating of sugar-containing foods.
