To begin this is not a attempt at undermining covid. I see a lot of talk trying to undermine covid and the precautions we should take concerning it. So wanted to get that out of the way up front. This is also not about blaming people. That’s the wrong paradigm and not the angle I’m coming from.
Most people agree that a healthy immune system helps you stand a better chance against sickness. A lifestyle where good nutrition and exercise is part of can help people deal with stress, anger, boredom, and unhappiness. It’s not a bandage for problems, but can be part of the solution.
Good nutrition is very important. We require energy for everything we do. Plenty of books cover why a healthy diet is essential. It’s tied directly to disease of affluence. What you eat , what you don’t eat, and how much you eat can be a difference to a long active life or a early grave.
Fitness is often confused for health. But they are not the same. You can be very fit, but very unhealthy. Look at the mortality rates of very athletic people like NFL players or steroid stuffed lifters with high blood pressure. Fitness is about strength, flexibility, speed, and endurance.
My question is for those who are into health and fitness and makes it part of their life what are the rule of thumbs and routines you follow. Do you feel worse if you don’t eat healthy or workout for a while? What are some of the things that helps keep you motivated to stay healthy.
