Healthy living is a choice! Here’s how to make it work

healthy living

Healthy living involves more than healthy eating. It’s a balanced lifestyle that revolves around a stable state of mind – and enjoying the results it brings to your private relationships and professional life. Here’s how to make it work!

Enjoy the sun

Sunlight gets us in a good mood. Boosting the production of endorphins or ‘happy hormones’, vitamin D has a great influence on our hormone system and reduces the chances of winter depression. And there’s more. Natural light also does wonders for the skin and the immune system, so be sure to spend plenty of time enjoying the fresh air outside. Don’t hesitate to relax under your patio cover, though. Too much direct sunlight can be harmful.

Plan your me time

If you’re always busy, busy, busy, planning your me time well in advance is a must. Make the most of it by kicking back at the spa, having a relaxing stroll in the woods or simply enjoying a book with a delicious cuppa in your hand. The ideal place to unwind? Why, your own garden, of course! Sometimes all you need to clear your head is a fresh breeze and the sound of birds chirping …

Exercise as much as you can

Living healthily and working out go hand in hand. Good for both body and mind, exercising gives you more energy, makes you less prone to illness and reduces the risk of joint pains. Exercising together makes it all the more fun, so drum up your friends for a bike ride or a trip to the pool and have a great time!

Healthy living in healthy surroundings

Your surroundings, too, directly affect your health. So, take care of the environment and try to save energy whenever possible. When summer comes around, why not go to work by bike instead of taking the car? Nature (and your body) will thank you!
