5 healthy living habits
Do you wonder how you can lead a healthy life? There’s no magic formula for it. The key is knowledge and education. In changing the harmful habits that are part of your daily life for new dynamics that are much more characteristic of a healthy life, and here we have to refer back to that fundamental basis that will help us to build a healthy life: healthy eating, moderate physical activity and adequate rest.

- Take care of what you eat and base your diet on legumes, fruits and vegetables.
- Avoid sugary drinks and hydrate yourself in a healthy way.
- Stay active! Sedentary life is public enemy number one: exercise moderately at least three days a week.
- Don’t forget to rest, and sleep, at least eight hours a day.
- Avoid the “toxic trinity”: tobacco, alcohol and coffee.
How to achieve a healthy state of satisfaction and peace of mind?
Obviously, there are a lot of other, much more specific, indications that will help you maintain a healthy lifestyle but, in general, these three pillars encompass each one of them. It is very important to emphasize that we should not confuse habits with temporary diets or certain activities that do not last a lifetime. Joining the gym for a couple of months in January, resting only during the holidays or going on a diet, does not help to generate the right conditions to achieve that healthy state of satisfaction and peace of mind that we all desire.
How to encourage healthy habits in children and adolescents
In the case of food diets, it is even counterproductive. What is important is not to develop more or less healthy behaviours for a given period of time, which is usually short. The habit has to be maintained over time throughout our lives. Therefore, the healthy habit must necessarily be internalized, automated, so to speak. For example, once we learn to ride a bicycle, we no longer need to think about anything in order to move forward on the pedals without losing our balance. We have automated the movements. With habits something similar happens, the development of a healthy and wholesome life needs a certain degree of prior knowledge and awareness that ends up being automated in the day to day.
The example of the bicycle is very good because it evokes childhood, and if we want to know how we can lead a healthy life ideally we should focus on childhood. Encouraging healthy habits for children and adolescents is one of the main battle horses of any advanced society. 80% of obese adults have also been obese as children!
Paradoxically, despite the healthy lifestyle campaigns promoted by the health ministry and the increasingly accurate information we find on the subject, the figures for child overweight and obesity are growing year by year. The WHO describes obesity as an epidemic, and it has every reason to do so. Childhood overweight is critical because it determines and largely conditions people’s health for life. Behind overweight and obesity among children and adolescents we do not find “just” a few extra kilos, we find a failure to incorporate the healthy habit into the life of a child who will soon be an adult.
