most appropriate for theirown lifestyle. Personally, in order to keep healthy, I eat well, exercise, and get lots ofrest.Eating well is an excellent way to keep healthy. If one is constantly drinking pop oreating fried foods, they willnot be able to keep a healthy weight. One must eat lots of vegetables and fruit, andstay away from all foods thatare high in cholesterol. In order to maintain a low level of cholesterol in my diet, Itend to eat more fish rather thanheavier meats. Fish is much healthier than red meat, and I find it much tastier as well.Exercising is also very important to leading a healthy lifestyle. One should exercisefor at least half an hour,three to four times a week. Exercise can include anything from going to the gym to"work out", to going on a longwalk around the city. If I am particularly busy, I will walk up the Stairs to myapartment rather than taking theelevator. This provides me with the minimum amount of exercise necessary to stay fit.The third thing I do to keep healthy is sleep well and often. I typically sleep forapproximately eight and a halfhours every night. Sleep is very important, as your body uses this rest time to healitself. If one tries to live for longperiods of time without sleep, they will quickly become haggard and disheveled.Sleep is absolutely necessary fora healthy life.In conclusion, I find that eating well, exercising and sleeping often is the best way forme to keep healthy. Ifa person can change their lifestyle and incorporate these three ideas, they will bemuch better off for it. A personwho leads a healthy lifestyle will be less likely to get sick, and they will live longer.
