Healthy living is a journey of personal development aimed at increasing quality of life, cognitive personal performance and inner contentment. Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, said,
“The wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings. Let food be your medicine.”
As far back as 470BC, when Hippocrates was a physician in ancient Greece, the healing and healthful properties of food were well understood. Other civilizations similarly adopted a holistic approach to good health, with a special emphasis on the curative properties of food.
Our generation is only recently undergoing a revolution in healthy thinking, with the idea that a vigorous lifestyle and a sound body are the basis for a strong mind. Moreover food can help us be more productive and efficient both at work and in life.
Conversely, our hectic lifestyle often serves as an excuse for our inability to focus on health and overall wellbeing. In fact, there is much that we can adopt to be healthier, happier, and to enjoy a richer, more rewarding life. A healthy lifestyle means being physically active and eating nutrient-rich food. The synergy between the later two brings the body and the mind back into balance.
