Our lifestyle is the way we live. Essential components of a healthy lifestyle include: what we drink, what we eat, level of exercise, quality of sleep, etc.
There are some tricks to manage our stressful life and ways to adapt to a stressful situation. According to a recent study, less than 3% of American people meet the criteria of a healthy lifestyle. The study showed that only 2.7 % of American adults got a perfect score on the basic criteria for healthy living. Just 13.8% met three of the criteria and 34.2% met only two criteria. Women scored better than men.

Most of us think we do a fair job of maintaining our health with good eating habits and physical activity. But, is that enough to be considered “healthy? The answer is No..! To lead a healthy lifestyle, it’s important to learn how to identify the effects of our own emotions on our body and health and learn the tricks to effective workouts that could bring invaluable changes to our lifestyle.
The following are the 3 essential elements of a healthy lifestyle
1. Eat Balanced diet
The three main nutrients in a balanced diet required for healthy living and building muscle tissues are proteins, carbohydrates, and fats. The best diet plan should include six servings divided into pre-morning, morning, pre-lunch, lunch, pre-evening and evening meals. It must be remembered here that different individuals with different body types (ectomorph, mesomorph or endomorph) have different requirements and should be fulfilled accordingly.
2. Daily workout
Daily workouts are essential, particularly if you are living a 9-5 desk job lifestyle. Problems like lower back pain, wrist strain, neck and shoulder pain are common in people working in such environments. The daily exercise shouldn’t be limited to only physical activities such as the gym and sports, you should also exercise your brain.
3. Enough Sleep
It turns out that sleep is crucial for strength training & recovery and helps with muscle repair after a strenuous workout. On the flip side, inadequate sleep can interfere with the body’s ability to recover after lifting weights and inhibits the body’s ability to build maximum muscle strength.
