A healthy lifestyle is a set of habits and actions that help strengthen and preserve immunity and physical capabilities, eliminate factors that negatively affect well—being and the body as a whole. There is no strict concept of a healthy lifestyle, so people often perceive it in their own way. For some, this is a sport seven times a week, while others believe that they have begun to lead a healthy lifestyle by giving up alcohol and cigarettes. A healthy lifestyle is aimed at preventing diseases and promoting health. This is the basis for the development of all aspects of a person’s life, which helps them achieve active longevity, fully perform social functions, and preserve physical and psychological health. A person who adheres to the basic principles of a healthy lifestyle lives a long, active, harmonious and happy life.

Recent studies show that people who exercise regularly and on a long-term basis have healthier brains and cognitive abilities in older age. Cognitive function refers to a person’s ability to think, perceive, reason, and learn. With age, the brain’s abilities decrease, and physical activity can help preserve the brain’s capabilities and improve the quality of life in older age.

Firstly, exercise helps to improve blood circulation in the brain. Most important functions, such as memory, speech, and thinking, require a large flow of blood in the brain.

Secondly, gymnastics helps to reduce stress levels and improve mood. Fatigue and stress can lead to a deterioration of cognitive abilities over time, and physical activity helps to cope with the negative consequences of difficult work and the experiences of the modern world.

Eating ginger helps to cope with pain:

Ginger contains many biologically active substances that have an anti-inflammatory effect. Some studies have shown that ginger can help reduce pain from menstrual cramps, arthritis, and migraines. Ginger can also help to cope with other types of pain, such as abdominal pain caused by digestive disorders and headaches caused by migraines. In order to get the beneficial effect of ginger from pain, it is necessary to add it to food or use it in the form of tea or essential oil. However, it is worth remembering that ginger can cause side effects in people suffering from gastritis or stomach ulcers. For people taking medications, you should also discuss the use of ginger with your doctor.

A cup of coffee a day can help you reduce your risk of depression by 20%:

Coffee is a source of caffeine, which can improve mood, increase mental efficiency, accelerate metabolism and increase energy levels in a short period of time. However, drinking coffee in large quantities, as well as drinking coffee in the afternoon, can negatively affect sleep and artificially increase stress levels in the body.

Regular sleep of less than 6 hours leads to a decrease in life expectancy:

People who sleep less than 6 hours a day have a 12% increased risk of premature death compared to those who sleep 7-8 hours a day. It has been established that an adult needs to sleep from 7 to 9 hours a day to have good health.

A healthy lifestyle is a path, not an end goal!
