General Healthy Living Guidelines

 

Your body is where you live; look after it.

 

 

Diet and Eating

 

What you choose to eat will make a huge difference to your well-being, the length, and the quality of your life. There is plenty of advice about good eating habits: find it and use it.

 

 

Exercise and Breathing

 

Moderate physical exercise is good for you: it helps you avoid high blood pressure, helps with weight control, helps with sleep, helps keep your mind active, helps you feel good about yourself, helps with positive thinking, and helps alleviate stress.

 

 

Sleep

Sleep is vital to overall well-being: physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Be calm, be calm, be calm. And don’t slouch.
