In our Healthy Vacation we don’t need only to relax, but we need to change

Being Healthy used to mean not getting sick. But today, being healthy means much more. It means a higher state of Fitness, which we as professionals do call “Wellness”. Wellness is an optimum state of health and well being which focuses on prevention rather than treatment. Living well means taking steps to prevent illness and to prolong and improve the quality of our life. Wellness also means balance among the physical, mental, social, intellectual and spiritual aspects of life.

While a balanced diet and lifestyle are essential to our wellness, exercise and physical fitness play a key role. Numerous studies have shown that exercise is one of the most powerful things we can do to improve our health and wellness.

‘Physical inactivity is one of the biggest public health problems in Europe.
It is clear that there are many health and functional benefits of participation in physical activity. Regular activity prevents the development of diseases such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, diabetes and colon cancer. In addition, people who exercise generally report enhanced moods, and older people can extend their function and preserve independence by staying active’.

We have to discover the benefits of exercise for ourselves. We will feel more relaxed and happier right away – even after our first workout. Within weeks, we will notice that we are less tired, feel stronger, have more endurance and can accomplish more each day.

There are four major components of physical fitness – cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, and body composition – and each plays an important role in improving the quality of our life.

A sensible exercise program can change our life. But the key word is “sensible”.
We should know what you’re doing and why you’re doing it in order to stay healthy.

You have to be able to manage life to manage your life.
