Rest. The body needs seven to eight hours every night to repair the damage of the previous day. Even a short nap (five to ten minute) during the day can be extremely revitalizing. Stress-reduction and body repair is the purpose of sleep.
- Exercise aims to raise the heart-rate above normal for an extended period of time, ie twenty minutes or more. Typically, this could include walking at a brisk pace, jogging, or playing your favorite game such as tennis.
- Diet refers to consuming a wide variety of healthful foods; paying attention to portion sizes; and avoiding eating foods that are high in calories but low in nutrients. A good diet is the right number of calories and their composition, appropriate to your lifestyle.
A very important aspect of diet is portion size. Most people seek to get most of their calories in two main meals resulting in the bulge of the belly. The better strategy, may be, is to consume five or so small meals throughout the day. Size really does matter!
It's never too late to start an exercise program. You can reap the health benefits of exercise whatever your age.
Combine a balanced, reduced-calorie menu with increased aerobic exercise and you'll be feeling and looking better for the rest of your life.
