Getting the right work life balance for a healthy lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle doesn’t depend on managing your weight through eating less and fitting in exercise on an irregular basis. A healthy lifestyle requires a healthy body and a healthy mind, often the two can be done in conjunction but either way you need to make sure you have time when free from the stresses and strains of work.

It may seem difficult to find time but remember that a healthy lifestyle may actually make it easier for you to concentrate at work and for your brain to be working as well as it can due to proper rest.

Exercise should be regular, every day if possible even if only twenty minutes or so. Exercising for a couple of hours each week won’t have the same effect and running a marathon once a year won’t make you that healthy.

Exercising can do a lot for you mentally as well as physically, endorphins that are released make you feel a lot more happy and positive and exercise is great for winding down from a hard days work. Exercise is also good for your immune system and a healthy heart and lungs will get more oxygen going round your body improving your brain power and how you feel. Exercise and enjoying yourself are both important but they can be the same thing, many people force themselves to the gym but dread it, try and fit in exercise you enjoy and can do with friends. Even if you can only get to a gym during the week try and fit in some activities with friends that are a little different and even adventurous. Variety is the spice of life so if you do have a few sports you mainly stick to try some others every now and again. Hiking is a great sport that many people can do but often don’t think of as a sport, it is great calorie burning and endurance building exercise though.
