What is Health?
People often misinterpret health for something else. Namely, they believe that being healthy is the same as having a healthy skin or being fit and exercising regularly. Surely, all these things contribute to the overall effect, but there is much more to being actually healthy. Instead of focusing on single factors regarding our well-being, we should look at a broader plan, since our health depends on various other things. Therefore, in order to be in excellent shape and to consider yourself healthy in the first place, you need to have perfect body, mind and spirit areas of yourself. These three all influence each other and you need to nourish all of these aspects in order to achieve a satisfying overalleffect.
How Can Lazy People Stay Healthy?
First of all, in order to achieve perfect health, you do not have to spend a lifetime in the gym or overindulge into some radical changes you are to introduce in your lifestyle. Rather, taking it easy, one step at a time, but staying persistent in your changes can truly make a difference. Since, as it was mentioned above, everything is connected, your diet can influence your need for exercising.
Thus, let us start with eating. Your average meal should not be more than the size of your two clenched fists. The first fist should represent proteins which can be found in low-fat, lean meat. The other, however, should consist of carbohydrates found in rice, potatoes and similar food which you are to bake or steam cook, avoiding frying in oil at all costs. Even though these meals may seem small, you may have about 6 of these a day. Then, you will be full all the time, but will never eat too much, helping your organism digest the food properly and using all of its nutrients adequately. This will make you lose weight, believe it or not.
If you happen to lack all the time necessary for preparing these meals, pay a nutritionist a visit and ask him/her for a valuable alternative. There are many shakes which are easy and quick to be made, but are incredibly rich with all the good stuff your body craves for. Taking multivitamin tablets will also get you covered.
However, you still should not neglect exercising completely. Even though you need not spend hours in the gym, occasional walk or jogging session for 10 minutes 3 times a week can be more than excellent for your health.
Always drink plenty of water, especially when you are exercising and, if you want some lean muscle mass, opt for a weight training every now and then.
