Forces? Will? All these excuses we’ve heard a thousand times, and will not talk you urgently to go to the gym and do push-ups a hundred times. For a start do this: try a part of the journey to the work to be done on foot, or go up to the third floor stairs, ignoring the elevator. You’ll see how much better you will feel with regular light exercise.
A varied and balanced diet is one of the main conditions for your well-being. Your body must receive all necessary for normal life of nutrients.

The main thing — remember that without regular and continuous sleep you are unlikely to fully enjoy life: gradually begin to dwindle the body, to shatter the nervous system, and is athletic and toned beauty, at you in the mirror will look tired of life young lady with dark circles under the eyes. But you’re not trying, right?
The last point is perhaps the most important. Why eat right, exercise and monitor health? Correctly — to get fun from life and enjoy every day. That is why you need to indulge yourself sometimes.
And most importantly, do whatever you like! If a friend came in perfect shape, lifting iron in the gym, it does not mean that you need to do the same. Choose an activity that is sure to be making you happy — whether that be yoga, Biking, long walks or hiking. Neither the activities nor the balanced diet should not be a burden — otherwise it loses its meaning. Enjoy everything from food, drinks, training, communication with interesting people, because it is a pledge of your emotional state!
