Healthy living is a chosen journey of personal development aimed at increasing quality of life, 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 now undergoing a revolution in healthy thinking, with the idea that a vigorous lifestyle and a good sound body are the basis for a strong mind. What is more, they can help us to be more productive and prolific at work and in life.
Conversely, our hectic pace of life often serves as an excuse for our inability to focus on our 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 healthy food. The synergy between both brings the body and the mind back into balance.
