The Ultimate Guide To Health makes it easy to build healthy habits into your day-to-day life. You’ll find easy-to-understand nutrition tips, age-specific physical activity guidelines and exercise strategies.
The human body is an incredible specimen given the right nourishment and healthy amounts of physical strain. This book explores the ways in which these choices help support a strong, resilient immune system.
From America’s top health expert, a TV and radio regular, and the author of the Ultimate Sourcebook, this guide gives readers all the facts about protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Its unique, comprehensive approach cuts through the nutrition myths that abound (saturated fat is now good for you, coconut oil is a miracle cure-all, meat is the only source of complete proteins) and helps readers eat nutrient-dense foods in ways that fit their lifestyle.
This book offers strategies, tips, and recipes that can help readers make healthy eating a priority in their lives. It discusses the different types of diets (including vegetarian, vegan, low-carb, and Mediterranean), and explains the pros and cons of each. It covers all of the basics of a balanced diet, rich in nutrient-dense foods and filled with filling meals and snacks. It also provides information on how to eat in moderation and avoid overeating. Whether a reader is starting on their healthy eating journey or looking to fine-tune existing habits, this guide will help them feel their best.
Moving your body and stepping outside of your comfort zone is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It helps alleviate muscle soreness, improves flexibility and promotes a healthy weight. You can do this by taking a walk around the park, going for a bike ride or joining a dance class.
You should make exercise a priority and try to incorporate it into your daily routine. Ensure that you find something that you enjoy doing, as this will motivate you to keep doing it. Also, it’s helpful to find a workout buddy or group who will encourage you and support your journey.
Optimize your weight and heart health; increase strength, flexibility and aerobic fitness; manage diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, arthritis and joint pain, and pregnancy through exercise and nutrition; and monitor, evaluate and tailor your exercise program for optimal results. Includes step-by-step instructions and full-color photos for the most effective exercises, sample workouts, practical advice, age-specific physical activity guidelines, and strategies for incorporating healthy eating and exercising into even the busiest of schedules.
Mental health is an integral part of overall well-being and influences how you respond to stressors, engage in relationships and make choices. It is a foundation for emotions, thinking, communication and learning as well as resilience, hope and self-esteem.
A mental illness is a health condition involving changes in mood, thinking or behavior that cause distress and/or difficulty functioning in daily activities, such as work, school or home life. Symptoms can be temporary or long-lasting, and may be present at any age.
Getting mental health treatment is important, just like any other medical condition. The key is finding the right balance of psychotherapy (talk therapy) and medication to manage your symptoms. Talk to your family doctor about your symptoms. They can help you find a mental health provider and make an appointment. They can also provide referrals to community support groups and other services for people with mental illnesses.
