Your first stop in the pursuit of better health and well-being.
Living a healthy lifestyle means pursuing self-wellness in body and in mind in an effort to be healthy both physically and mentally.
Why live a healthy lifestyle? … pretty simple. When you’re feeling good – on top of your game, you do better, think better, even look better than when you’re run down and out of shape. Good health means your immune system is stronger, your stamina is higher, and you can get more things done in less time. A healthy lifestyle can have a positive effect on everything you do; on your employment; on your relationships with others; and on how you feel about yourself.
Everyone wants to be as healthy as they can be. The problem is that life is so fast-paced, the effort to eat right and exercise seems to be difficult, if not impossible. As a result, obesity in the U.S. is at its highest rate ever. Diabetes is at record heights. Heart disease is soaring. Add in environmental toxins, cigarette smoke, excess alcohol intake, and a sedentary lifestyle, and we have the perfect recipe for poor health.The good news is that we can do something about it. All it takes is a decision to pursue a better way.
The focus of this site is to explore wellness related topics, and to provide diverse opportunities for self improvement. If you’re interested in improving your health and overall well-being, you’ve come to the right place.
The human body is an amazing organism that can take a lot of abuse and still function quite well; not optimally, but quite well. Just as a car that should have 93 octane gasoline will run on 87 octane, the body can run on junk food instead of quality food, just not as well, and over time the effects will show. We don’t run on gasoline however, so what do we need to power our engines?
This is the question we will do our best to answer here.
We will be covering topics relating to nutrition, exercise, and attitude just to name a few. So browse around and take a look at the articles. You will find information on the basic nutrients: water, carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, as well as on vitamins, minerals, and other micro-nutrients that are essential to keep health at optimum level. You will also find categories for weight loss, workout strategies, and more.
We hope you enjoy your time here, and we hope you benefit from the information you find. We love comments, so feel free to leave feedback, good or bad–it’s all constructive.
To your health!
