Today we lead a fast-paced life where what matters most are time, money and materialism. Instead of enjoying life the way it is meant to be, we rush through our lives and thereby allow the beautiful moments to pass by like the blink of an eye. We sacrifice our health and family for those pleasures that add no meaning to our lives. We forsake the present to make our future secure. We cram our already packed schedule with more tasks and fly around like headless chickens trying to get those things done. Hence, we do not see our precious lives slipping through our own hands. However, by the time we realize there would be nothing left to be salvaged.
People need to realize that life is more precious than anything else in the world. Hence, it is our responsibility to enhance the quality of life through healthy living. Our sedentary lifestyle, improper food habits and increased stress and tension make us prone to diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart diseases, high cholesterol, hypertension, anemia, and so on. Hence regular exercises, proper diet and sound sleep are prerequisites for a healthy body and mind.
Proper nutrition and a healthy diet are essential for overall wellbeing. A healthy diet comprises of macronutrients (fats, proteins, and carbohydrates), calories and micronutrients. Hence, the diet should involve vegetables, fruits, cereals, pulses, rice, milk and milk products, egg, fish, meat, and so on. But how many of us can prepare delicious homemade dishes that can help us forget about fast foods?
