Default Health and fitness

Health isn’t only about not being sick and fitness isn’t only about not being overweight. There are many com­ponents to health and fitness. To be healthy you need to have com­plete physical, mental and social well-being. A ‘healthy’ person will generally have right emotional ma­turity, social skills and intelligence for their age. However being healthy also means eating well. This means incorporating the 5 main food groups Fruit and vegetables, Starchy foods such (rice, pasta, bread and potatoes) Meat and other animal products, Dairy and Foods containing fat and sugar into three meals a day. You should eat a wide va­riety of foods in these groups and drink lots of water.

It is easier to eat healthily during the day if you have a healthy breakfast. When you miss break­fast you are left craving food for the rest of the day and you will most likely re­sort to getting a quick and unhealthy snack, in particularly at night which is the worst time to be eating, as the body has trouble having a restful sleep when it is busy digesting food.

Mental health is con­nected to your physi­cal health, for exam­ple the body does not “need” fatty foods or sweets, it is purely psy­chological and this need can be filled with an activity you find en­joyable. You will also find your­self in a better mood if you have eaten and slept well.

Staying healthy means getting a good 10 hours sleep, eating 3 varying meals a day and being happy and sociable. You should also do 30- 60 minutes of exercise a day to burn off energy that you have eaten.

Being fit is of course linked to health, physi­cally, mentally and socially. There are three main benefits to being fit, linked to physical, mental and social health. Firstly when you are exercising you are us­ing up energy which is stored by fat this stops you from gaining ex­cess weight. Secondly by being fit and doing exercise you release a hormone called endo­morphines which make you feel happier so ex­ercising in the long run will increase your men­tal health and Thirdly participating in sport opens you up to new opportunities to meet new people especially if you are participating in a team sport.
