The 7 Habits of Healthy Living

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as "a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being", which means that this concept goes beyond the existence or not of one or the other disease. Consequently, more than a healthy life, it is necessary to speak of a healthy lifestyle, which includes food, physical exercise, prevention of health, work, the relationship with the environment and social activity.

From this perspective it can be determined that the habits necessary to lead a healthy life are the following:
   

Balance diet:

A healthy diet is governed by including all the foods included in the nutritional pyramid, but in the appropriate proportions and in the amount sufficient (no more) to maintain the nutritional needs of the organism based on the energy consumption that it performs with daily activity. The daily energy value of the diet should be 30-40 kilocalories per weight wire. Carbohydrates should occupy 50-55% of the nutrients, with no more than 10% of simple sugars. Fats must be 30% of the total energy value, distributed as follows: 15-20% of monounsaturated fats, 5% of polyunsaturated fats and no more than 7-8% of saturated fats. Proteins consumed should not exceed 10% of the diet. Finally, it is necessary to give the organism about 20-25 grams of vegetable fiber.
  

Toxic habits: 

Tobacco, alcohol, and drugs have a very negative effect on health. The only tolerance refers exclusively to wine or beer, of which even the consumption of the equivalent of a daily drink is recommended.
   

Physical exercise: 

The general recommendations determine about 30 minutes daily of physical activity, being sufficient to walk at a rapid pace during this time. It allows you to burn off excess calories and strengthen muscles and bones, but it also helps control blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels, as well as help eliminate stress and help you sleep better, gain a state of relaxation And avoid mood swings, improve self-esteem and personal satisfaction. It can also be a good way to develop a healthy social activity when the exercise is done in the company.
  

Hygiene: 

Adequate hygiene avoids many health problems: from infections to dental or dermatological problems. The concept of hygiene refers not only to cleanliness and cleanliness of the body but also affects the domestic sphere.

Toxic products: 

Many products to which the exposure of the organism, punctual or continuous, can result in a serious risk to health. Environmental pollution of cities is considered as one of the most important risk factors for health.
  

Mental balance: 

It does not refer to the existence of mental illnesses, but to the state of emotional and psychological well-being, necessary to maintain and develop the cognitive capacities, the social relations and the coping of the personal and professional challenges of daily life. Stress, fatigue, irascibility, anxiety are, among others, some of the signs that indicate that the mental state is not entirely healthy.
  

Social activity: 

Social relations are a fundamental aspect of the health of the human being and, consequently, for a healthy aging. Social isolation can lead to a gradual and irreversible deterioration of physical and mental abilities, including physical incapacity and dementia.
