A healthy lifestyle is essential to a healthy, happy and disease-free life. You can significantly reduce your risk of a variety of diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, kidney diseases, sleep disorders, mood disorders and many more. In one of her recent Instagram reels, nutritionist Lovneet Batra quotes Jean-Pierre who says, ”Eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously.” She further explains how these 4 factors are essential to following a healthy lifestyle. She writes, “Nutrition, sleep, regular exercise, and meditation are four pillars of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Keeping them balanced helps us achieve good health & well-being.” Here are 4 factors to a healthy lifestyle to keep in mind according to the nutritionist:1. Eat HealthilyHealthy eating is important for many reasons, including fuelling your body, acquiring necessary nutrients, lowering the risk of diseases, increasing your longevity, and promoting optimal mental and physical well-being. Healthy eating does not have to be complicated. It is only meant to nourish your body while also tickling your taste buds.2. SleepGetting a good night’s sleep is incredibly important for your health. In fact, it is just as important as eating a balanced, nutritious diet and exercising. Healthy sleep is important for cognitive functioning, maintaining physical strength, and good mental health. It is advisable to get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night for optimal health.3. Practice deep breathingWhile breathing mindfully may be a simple process, it carries numerous benefits. Whether you’re trying to reduce your depression and anxiety or strengthen your immunity; you’d be surprised at what you can accomplish simply by paying attention to your breathing. Regulate your breathing with 10 minutes of meditation a day.4. ExerciseExercise is not just good for our physical health, it also reduces anxiety and stress. Plus, physical activity is a tool to fight depression, along with various other common health problems. Exercising boosts our “feel-good hormones” and endorphins. At the same time, it reduces stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Try and go for at least a half-hour walk every day.Look at her reel:View this post on InstagramA post shared by Nutrition.by.Lovneet (@nutrition.by.lovneet)Keep these points in mind if you wish to follow a healthy lifestyle.
