What is a healthy balanced lifestyle all about? Well, you probably know that it requires a decent diet, proper amount of sleep, and a little exercise. But there is more to it than that. You see, if you are sitting down all day long in a desk, you need to get up at least every 45 minutes and walk around, or at least stand up, because it’s not good to sit on your rear-end all day long. You probably do that enough already at home watching TV, or driving in your car during your daily commute.

It is also recommended that you walk 3 miles a day, every single day of your life. Yes, it’s okay to skip a day if the weather is really bad, but in that case you need to think of some other alternative way to exercise. Health experts agree that if you walk 3 miles every day you will live 10 years longer, and you will also live healthier during those 10 years. And yes a big issue is what you eat, there’s no denying it. And we all know that Americans are big abusers when it comes to what we should be eating. Indeed, America is getting fatter and fatter every year.

But that doesn’t mean you have to get fatter, you can beat the odds and beat the statistics by living a balanced and healthy life. If you’re watching five hours of TV, or sitting down and spending five hours a day on the computer, you need to cut back a little. Take an hour out and walk 3 miles. If you are eating too much junk food then consider some healthy snacks.

Additionally, sleep is a big issue, and most Americans just don’t get enough sleep. Your body needs good sound sleep, approximately 7 1/2 and 10 hours of sleep each night – it various with each individual and the quality of sleep matters also. Too much sleep isn’t good either, but too little sleep will make you old in a hurry and challenge your immune system. Lastly, it is very important that you get the proper vitamins in your body, the right amount of amino acids, and that you constantly have at least some of the super foods in your refrigerator and around your house.

Why not look up; super foods – on Google, and put them on your grocery list. Also find an excellent supplement to help counteract some of that junk food that you just can’t seem to find the willpower to get over. Yes, I think you can do this, I think you can live a healthy lifestyle without cramping your style. Sounds like a good New Year’s Resolution to me, how about you? Please consider all this.
