Does your ideal life have health in it?
Well, just think about this for a minute.
It is said that living a healthy lifestyle can help prevent chronic diseases and long-term illnesses.
It is also said that feeling good about yourself and taking care of your health are important for your self-esteem and self-image.
Some may say that your health is at the center of your life and that every part of your life relies on you having good health.
One study went so far as to estimate the link between only drinking alcohol in moderation, not smoking, exercising regularly, and eating a healthy diet can extend your life by up to 14 years.
When you exercise regularly, you will usually find you look and feel better, leading to a rise in your confidence. Higher self-esteem can lead to a more satisfying life.
Other studies have found that exercising can release hormones to your brain that enhance your mood and provide you with a sense of euphoria.
This sounds like if you were to live a healthy life that you are sure to feel better, look better, think better, have more confidence, have more energy and even live longer! You could say that by living a healthy life, you're almost sure to live a happy life.
That certainly sounds ideal to us.
