Being healthy and fit isn't a prevailing trend or pattern. Rather,it's a way of life". A healthy way of life is the thing that eachfamily and individual tries to adopt. Everyb…ody needs to stay fitand healthy and live on with a long life, but simply wishing tolive with a healthy life doesn't have any effect.
You hear a lot about living a healthy lifestyle, enough that the phrase 'healthy lifestyle' may be one we'd like to permanently retire. The problem is, that phrase desc…ribes the life we need to live if we want to feel good and look good. So, what does it actually mean? Well, there are the obvious things that describe a healthy person: He or she doesn't smoke, is at a healthy weight, eats healthy foods and exercises on a regular basis. It sounds so simple, it's funny just how hard it is to do all of those things in our current world. The good news is, you don't have to change everything at the same time. In fact, the trick to healthy living is making small changes. Take more steps each day, adding fruit to your cereal, having an extra glass of water or saying no to that second helping of buttery mashed potatoes. So, what else can you be doing to live healthy? Your first order of business is to start exercising. Exercise One of the biggest reasons we're have a weight problem these days is because we sit around too much. We know we need to exercise, but we have so many excuses not to do it. We're too busy, don't know where to start, we're not motivated or we're afraid we'll injure ourselves or we're afraid that exercise has to be vigorous for what our bodies can handle. The truth is, everything counts and the more you move, the healthier you'll be. It's great if you can spend time exercising - Meaning you're sweating, working in your target heart rate zone and/or doing something to strengthen your body. But it doesn't always have to be that way. Moderate activities like chores, gardening and walking can make a difference. Just adding a little movement to your life can: Reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes Improve joint stability Increase and improve range of movement Help maintain flexibility as you age Maintain bone mass Prevent osteoporosis and fractures Improve mood and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression Enhance self esteem Improve memory in elderly people Reduce stress So, even if you opt for small changes and a more modest weight loss, you can see the benefits are still pretty good. One study has found that just a 10% weight reduction helped obese patients reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and increase longevity. In fact, you don't even have to have a goal to lose weight, especially if you have trouble stick to a program. Why not focus on being healthy to start and worry about the weight loss once you've got some healthy habits under your belt? Simple Ways to Move Your Body You can start the process of being healthy and weight loss now by adding a little more activity to your life. If you're not ready for a structured program, start small. Every little bit counts and it all adds up to burning more calories. Turn off the TV. Once a week, turn off the TV and do something a little more physical with your family. Play games, take a walk...almost anything will be more active than sitting on the couch. Walk more. Look for small ways to walk more. When you get the mail, take a walk around the block, take the dog for an extra outing each day or walk on your treadmill for 5 minutes before getting ready for work. Do some chores. Shoveling snow, working in the garden, raking leaves, sweeping the floor...these kinds of activities may not be 'vigorous' exercise, but they can keep you moving while getting your house in order. Pace while you talk. When you're on the phone, pace around or even do some cleaning while gabbing. This is a great way to stay moving while doing something you enjoy. Be aware. Make a list of all the physical activities you do on a typical day. If you find that the bulk of your time is spent sitting, make another list of all the ways you could move more--getting up each hour to stretch or walk, walk the stairs at work, etc. Learn about more ways to fit in exercise. Eating Well Eating a healthy diet is another part of the healthy lifestyle. Not only can a clean diet help with weight management, it can also improve your health and quality of life as you get older. You can use the new MyPlate to determine how many calories you need and what food groups you should focus on or, if you're looking for smaller changes, you can use these tips for simple ways to change how you eat: Eat more fruit. Add it to your cereal, your salads or even your dinners Sneak in more veggies. Add them wherever you can--a tomato on your sandwich, peppers on your pizza, or extra veggies in your pasta sauce. Keep precut or canned/frozen veggies ready for quick snacks. Switch your salad dressing. If you eat full-fat dressing, switch to something lighter and you'll automatically eat less calories. Eat low-fat or fat-free dairy. Switching to skim milk or fat free yogurt is another simple way to eat less calories without having to change too much in your diet. Make some substitutes. Look through your cabinets or fridge and pick 3 foods you eat every day. Write down the nutritional content and, the next time you're at the store, find lower-calorie substitutes for just those 3 items.

Making small changes in how you live each day can lead to big rewards, so figure out what you can to be healthy today.
A healthy lifestyle supports many of the human body's functions. Eating healthy and regular exercise provide optimal nutritional support for the nervous system.
What are the current European and national legislation national guidelines and local policies and protocols which affect the work practice relevant to pressure area care and risk assessment in support?
could you please answer the above question please The question, whilst valid, is all encompassing. Some points to consider about the question are European legislation and …enactments increases by many hundreds per day. It would need a full time lawyer to stay abreast of this. The same is true for national legislation. Local policies and protocols vary it would then be necessary to be aware of all variences everywhere. Not practical or possible. If you could narrow down the field somewhat it may be possible to give a meaningful answer. legislation on pressure care
the legislation is the safeguarding legislation such as the care standards act and safeguarding vulnerable adults as it states you have a duty to protect individuals from harm…, which includes protecting them from getting pressure sores. The GSCC code of practice also states this. NICE have clinical guidelines for the prevention of pressure sores and your organisation should also have a policy for this
Healthy lifestyle for me is having a balance diet, workout or exercise few times a week, and an active lifestyle free of any vices such as smoking or too much alcohol.
Here are some things you can do to have a healthy lifestyle: follow proper nutrition -- do a search for "food pyramid" to see how much of each type of food you should be gett…ing in your diet!stay away from "junk food" that only gives you "empty calories" - this means they just have starch or sugar and don't do anything but make you feel tired later, and make you gain fatstay away from illegal drugs entirelystay away from smoking entirelylimit your use of alcohol - a normal serving of alcohol (one glass, one small can or bottle of beer, one shot-glass of hard liquor) is fine, but more than that is harmfulget enough sleep - kids and teens need 10 hours a night and adults need 6-8 hoursexercise at least three times a week to the point where your heart rate goes up and you're breathing heavily - many people take a brisk walk every day or sosocialize - make a few good friends and go do healthy things with them (going out drinking is not healthy)exercise your mind - learn something new every day to keep your mind working at it's best
By getting them used to a healthy diet, and that exercise and activity is a normal part of the day.
cos u can true understatement of parenting is saying there is an importance of a children's routine. Routine establishes so many aspects of healthy living, good habits and g…ood behavior that even the slightest structure is necessary in day-to-day life. Really, kids need and even desire routine - even if they don't know it - and there are plenty of ways to get them going by building a schedule that works for the whole family. There are many positive side effects for establishing strong routines for kids. Kids don't have a lot of control in their lives and it can give them a sense of organization, stability and comfort. That, in turn, should help develop better behavior and some sense of personal control - always a challenge, especially with young kids. Doing things like bathing and brushing teeth as part of morning or nighttime routines can help establish good personal hygiene and health habits. Having built in chore time somewhere in the week or day, having them help pick up at the end of dinner or tidy up the house at the end of a day of playing establishes responsibility and work ethic. The list can go on regarding how one aspect of routine can affect another and lead to more positives. Morning Getting up and going can be hard whether young or old, kid or parent, in school or not. Maybe morning is harder on the stay-at-home dad than child or vise versa. No matter how getting started in the morning goes for a family, getting a solid routine established right off the bat means an easier flow to the day. Sticking to a similar wake-up call could mean all the difference between having a good day and having a bad one. Think about it, even if it's obvious, if the kids are used to waking up at 7:30 and for some reason rise an hour earlier or later you now need to figure out how to add an hour to the day or squeeze in a day's worth of routine in 60 less minutes. The tone of the day can be messed up. The implications are worse if the kids are in school or there is something taking place that morning. Having a solid morning ritual will maintain a good stress level for everyone. So whatever the process is, getting up, getting dressed, hygiene maintenance then off to the breakfast table, there is only one chance to get off to a good start. Mealtime When it's time to eat is a perfect time to establish good habits. Eating habits, specifically. Always eat breakfast, and a good one. Lunch and dinner are more of a given, but set times and structure for kids so there are no surprises and length between eating isn't so great that hunger takes over the family. That can lead to crabbiness or impulse snacking and dinner wrecking. Set standards for when snacking takes place and what kinds of foods are eaten. Don't indulge in food whenever a child wants something. The results should equal good eating and eating habits. Mealtime is also a good time to instill family into the kids. Always try to find time to sit down together, preferably at a table, to talk and eat. Additionally, have kids help get dinner started, set the table and clean up afterward to plant a bit of responsibility. Sleep Getting kids to sleep, whether it is for a nap or for the night, is one of the greatest challenges for parents. Those kiddos always think they are missing something if they have to shut their eyes, plus there is so much more fun to be had running around rather than lying down. Obviously, children who aren't well rested can throw a wrench in any lifestyle. Sticking to a solid sleep schedule may be one of the most important aspects of routine. Sticking to the same times and the same aspects will make this so ingrained that less fighting and whining will take place and hopefully better sleep will result. For bedtime, brushing teeth, going to the bathroom, taking a bath, reading a story and finally lights out can be comforting and rewarding for the kids. They know what the next step is and what the expected end result will be. Stray from whatever ritual you use and getting those lights off and eyes closed becomes more of a challenge. For younger kids needing naps, timing may be everything. Try for a nap too early and they may fight the entire time and never get to sleep. Go too long and they may be over tired, leading to more restlessness. Little things before a nap may help in the same ways as going down for the night - stories, tucking in, changing diapers, etc. Some flexibility may be OK around sleep times if special activities or events are going on, but a good sleep routine can keep a family sane. Play One area for stay-at-home dads and their kids that can, and maybe should, be flexible is fun activities. Changing things up can keep life fresh and interesting. As long as everyone knows there is activity built in to the day, there will be something looked forward to. No matter how the basic daily structure is set up, there always will be time for activity. A little planning can go a long way, trying last-second ideas to fill the schedule also can lead to stress. For older kids with sport practices or extra curricular activities there isn't much of a choice in having the time set aside. And that requires a whole new level of planning to make sure all the needs of the kids and the rest of the family remain being met. Morning or afternoon, ahead of naps or after meals, there needs to be time for fun. Everyone needs the release, and it could make things feel a little less structured, too.
Routines are important for children. If children are used to eating healthy foods (and not junk or fast food), then that will seem normal and routine for them. Children sh…ould also be encouraged to play outside as much as possible.

Thats what I'm trying to find out! >_<
Positive mental emotional health supports active healthy life style and vice versa. Without one the other is not possible. Two sides of same coin.
Often children and adults succumb to peer pressure. Blindly they follow their friends' advice, style and behavior. The problem arises when the lifestyle being copied is ag…ainst the person's ways and means. The opposition from family can take a serious turn when the person fails to understand the difference between good and bad, right and wrong. As stress and tension begin to build, relationships start falling apart.
