You Will Be Happier
Healthy people are generally happy people. Regularly eating healthy foods such as oily fish, oats and nuts can boost mood and make you feel happier and less stressed. Maintaining a healthy diet and body weight can also regulate hormones meaning you’re less likely to experience mood swings and can even help improve mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. These conditions can be made worse due to a lack of certain vitamins and minerals, and so eating a healthy diet ensures that you’re not deficient in any of these things. Exercise is also a well documented mood booster as it releases ‘happy chemicals’ endorphins into the body. Maintaining a good exercise routine is also a healthy way to reduce stress, and many kinds of exercise also double up as a hobby so you get the social and enjoyment aspects of them too. Eating healthily and exercising makes you feel generally more alert and energised, so you’re able to get the best out of every day.


You Will Reduce Your Risk of Disease and Illness
Living a healthy lifestyle improves immune function, meaning you’re less likely to get ill from opportunistic illness and infection. Healthy diet and regular exercise can also prevent things like certain cancers, heart disease, type two diabetes and stroke. By investing in your health you protect yourself against a whole host of serious long term illnesses. Even bad sleep routines and not getting enough sleep can have disastrous effects on the body, and so as well as eating well and exercising you should take this into consideration too.

A healthy lifestyle can even prevent illnesses such as Alzheimer's and dementia and even Parkinson’s disease. So not only will you live longer, but you’ll also live much more comfortably and healthily in your old age. You’ll have more time to spend with your family, and generally make the very most of your life.
