The Pillars of a Healthy Lifestyle

Living a healthy lifestyle is not easy, especially in today’s world! Many of us work sedentary jobs and use public transport or drive, our food is full of unhealthy additives and preservatives, and we don’t have enough hours in the day to worry about exercise!

We know that the struggle for health is one that billions of people around the world suffer through on a daily basis, so we thought we’d create this quick guide on the basics of a healthy lifestyle. Here we’ll identify the most essential aspects of health and fitness and for each will give you one example of an easily manageable way to implement a good practice in your life. Let’s take a look:


Diet is one of the fundamental foundations for the rest of your health. The food and drink you ingest has to supply you with nourishment, give you enough energy for the day, and promote healthy biology through gut bacteria and things of this nature. Everybody knows that your diet is important, but many struggle to make meaningful change.

Next time, instead of going for the full-on keto diet or creating an entire weekly food plan, try the anti-cheat day! Just choose one day a week to ensure you eat healthy, nutritious meals with low fat and sugar. Opting for just one day helps to manage the stress and ensures that you can keep up the habit! Once you’ve achieved success you can add in another day, and so on, gradually changing your eating habits.


Exercise is another obvious one that everybody acknowledges but few are able to make time for! But the importance of regular exercise for our physical strength, endurance, and for the general health of our bodies and important organs like our hearts and lungs, absolutely cannot be overstated!

If you’re struggling to keep up with a routine, maybe try slotting micro-work outs whenever you have a few moments! Kettle boiling? Throw out 20 push ups. Waiting in line at the bank? Start sprinting the perimeter! Okay, maybe not that, but you see the point. If sticking to a healthy lifestyle is difficult, then fitting these tiny sparks of exercise into your day may be a more manageable and sustainable approach!
