A healthy diet and exercise routine plays an essential role in boosting your overall health and quality of life. You can maintain optimal weight, cut down the risk of cardiovascular disorders, reduce the chances of certain forms of cancer, keep vital organs well-functioning and improve your mental and emotional health. Cholesterol, blood pressure and blood circulation can be better regulated and cardiac and artery health can be enhanced. Regular exercise and a nutrititious diet also make you fitter for routine day-to-day tasks. Exercising for about half an hour daily is recommended, be it brisk walking, cycling, swimming or yoga. If you face shortage of time, avoid being sedentary and take the staircase instead of the lift, walk to the grocery store instead of driving and participate in domestic chores. These minor adjustments will help provide benefits in the same way as active physical activities do. For diet, consider consuming loads of foods rich in vitamins, minerals and protein. Drink lots of water daily, check your portions when you eat and cut down on fatty, salty and sugary foods from your diet.
