Living a healthy lifestyle prevents diseases and lengthens your lifespan. You may say, “It’s not that easy.” But let’s not forget that a journey of a thousand miles begins with just a single step. Here are some tips from famous Egyptian health coach Dr. Nourhan Kandil…

Healthy lifestyle in­volves a way of living that lowers the risk of becoming seriously ill as well as lengthening one’s lifespan. Scien­tific studies have identified certain types of behavior that contribute to the devel­opment of non-communicable diseases, and which even lead to early death. Good health is not just about avoiding illness. It’s also about physical, mental and so­cial wellbeing. When someone adopts a healthy lifestyle, they can in turn serve as a positive role model for other people in the family, particularly children. Here’s my advice for how to transform your life into a healthier one…

Manage Your Time: Learning to manage your time more effectively can reduce stress. Use a day planner to schedule your activities. This will help you see if you’re taking on too much, and will also help you make time for the things you need to do. Remember to make sure to schedule some time for relaxation and fun activities for each day.

Become Active: Exercise is a powerful tool for managing stress and anxiety. However, it can be hard to start a regular program. So, start small and work your way up. Aim for at least 20 minutes of physical exercise three to four times a week. You’ll be more likely to stick with a program if you choose something you enjoy (such as skiing, hiking, gardening, or dancing). Try joining a gym, signing up for an exercise class, or finding a workout buddy. Find little ways to increase your physical activity. For example, park farther away from the door, or take the stairs.

Eat Healthy: Having a well-balanced and healthy diet can make you feel better. Eat consistently throughout the day and don’t skip meals. Your diet should include a variety of foods. Wondering how to eat healthier? Try to reduce your salt and sugar intake, eat more fruits and vegetables, and drink more water. Aim for three meals a day and one to two snacks. By the way, you’ll find out more about healthy eating habits in my article that will appear in next month’s issue..
