Text 20. HEALTHY LIFESTYLE DEPENDS ON YOUR ACTIVITIES
“A sound mind in a sound body” fables the famous proverb. Unfortunately, we forget about this saying that is actually a key to health and well-being. How is this statement applied to our life?
First of all, healthy way of living affects our mood. You may have noticed that after doing some physical exercises you feel cheerful and full of energy. It happens because such chemical substances as endorphins flow to our blood and promote a feeling of well-being and also raise our mood (endorphins are also called the hormones of happiness). So sports is always worth doing, especially nowadays when the ecological situation is not satisfying. With each breath harmful air particles get into our body and therefore in our blood. When we do sports the blood circulation increases and our cells get more oxygen. And besides that, when the blood flow increases, all these harmful particles get washed out of the blood faster.
It’s not hard to exercise. There are scores of sports facilities at your disposal. You can jog or ride your bicycle, ski or skate in winter, play basketball or swim – it’s up to you! But if it’s raining outside or you simply don’t want to get dressed and go to a gym hall then you can purchase some exercise equipment. Machines for vibration exercise are currently gaining more and more popularity. They are easy to use, compact and highly effective. When working out on a vibration machine it:
· Increases your blood flow
· Makes you stronger
· Increases your muscle flexibility
· Provides your cells with more oxygen
· Improves your mood
· Improves your overall health condition
Vibration machines can be placed at home, even if you live in a small apartment. Moreover, vibration machines can be found in fitness centers as well.
Apart from going in for sports, eating well is also a crucial part of a healthy lifestyle. The fact that we’re always in a hurry leads to consuming a lot of junk food – sandwiched, hamburgers, pizzas etc. And often we’ll prefer buying coke and food from McDonald’s to buying fruit. Actually, eating healthy food is not more expensive, as many people think. What is more expensive: buying a pack of rice or some Italian pizza? If you follow this 4 simple advice, your overall well-being will improve, you’ll feel it:
· Eat fruit every day or at least several days a week. Don’t forget that “An apple a day keeps a doctor away”;
· Add more veggies to your daily diet;
· Eat low-fat diary;
· Avoid eating junk food and drinking soda (you also gain weight).
