The 4 principles of how to live a healthy life

As a physician, I believe a healthy lifestyle has 4 essential building blocks. And, by incorporating these 4 aspects, we are able to make lifelong changes much easier. Healthy changes that benefit the health of our body and mind.

  1. clean eating
  2. clever drinking
  3. happy body
  4. happy mind

What a Healthy Lifestyle is not

Living a healthy lifestyle does not need to be complicated. It certainly has nothing to do with a ‘diet’, calorie counting, weighing, strenuous exercise routines or difficult to follow recipes.

It simply means to understand and incorporate the 4 building blocks above into your daily routine as best you could.

And, no, the healthy lifestyle police are not going to give you a fine when you enjoy a piece of cake at your child’s birthday party! Living healthy is never supposed to take the fun out of living.

Just know the basic principles and follow them as well and as often as you can.

A good healthier lifestyle fact to remember

It is not as much about what you eat, as it is about how much and how often you eat what!

Now, let’s have a look into the detail behind those 4 building blocks of how to live a healthy life.

1. Clean eating

Clean eating is a combination of knowing the foods you should always include in your diet and also those you need to limit.

It is NOT about avoiding certain foods, it is simply eating more healthy foods and less processed foods.

Remember to

In other words, make sure every meal includes
  • some protein
  • good fats and
  • lots of fresh veggies

Its that easy! And, if you need a bit more guidance on how to live a healthy life by eating clean, check out this great healthy living bundle and learn how to implement these rules successfully and easily.

2. Clever drinking

Clever drinking has two parts. The first being to consume enough water and yes you guessed it, the second to limit your alcohol intake.

Drinking enough water every day has lots of benefits including,

  • boosting metabolism and helping with weight loss
  • energizing your muscles
  • boosting energy levels
  • helping with stress relief
  • promoting healthy skin
  • boosting immunity
  • flushing kidneys
  • improving bowel  digestion

3. Happy Body

We need to be active to keep our bodies happy. It does not mean, spend an hour a day in a gym, although, if that’s your thing, go for it!

Being active should be fun and easy. Great ideas include

  • family activities
  • spending time outdoors
  • cycling with the kids
  • playing ball
  • dancing
  • doing yoga

4. Happy Mind

Feeling tired, stressed and miserable has a huge impact on our health. You will already be more healthy from being active and eating well. The last healthy lifestyle step to incorporate is creating a happy mind.

Easy ways to do this include easy actions like

Knowing how to live a healthy life and the resulting benefits

Of course, your next question should be, but why do I want a Healthy Lifestyle. And, the answer is two-fold:

Clean eating, clever drinking, and a happy body and mind ensures

  • feeling healthy, happy and energized day-to-day, and
  • longevity
    • as it protects you against diseases like obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, and even cancer

And, who doesn’t want that?

But, doesn’t a healthy lifestyle mean dieting and eating no carbs?

No, it does not! Everyone has jumped on the low carb/keto/paleo bandwagon and I know this comes to mind when talking about a healthy lifestyle.

However, following the 4 building blocks discussed above is all you need to live healthily.

That being said, the keto lifestyle certainly has many benefits. Ones I will go into more detail in a different post. Remember to subscribe when you want to receive the new healthy living posts directly to your inbox.

And although I do recommend

  1. A low-carb body cleanse
    • to get  your healthy lifestyle changes going
  2. Kickstarting your healthy lifestyle
  3. Living healthy for life

I also believe

low-carb eating should only be followed for a limited time. There is no research proving that a low carb lifestyle has longterm benefits. And, there is a lot of side-effects like constipation, hormone changes, tiredness and irritability to keep in mind when sticking to a low-carb diet.

Therefore, I suggest you start the process as described above and then follow a clean eating routine, including limited carbs.

The question should never be whether or not to eat a certain food group like carbohydrates, rather how much of it.

That is the secret of how to live a happy life naturally!

When you want to body cleanse or lose some weight, by all means, go low carb! For a long-term healthy lifestyle simply eat clean, drink clever and have a happy body and mind! In other words, follow the 4 building blocks!
