These healthy lifestyle quotes all inspire holistic health of the body, mind and soul.
While the traditional view of a healthy lifestyle tended to focus only on healthy foods and exercise for disease prevention (which is still of course great!), a more holistic view needs to focus on so much more, including how we also maintain a healthy mind and soul.
What does a healthy lifestyle mean to you?
It could be many things.
For some people, it means going for a run in the morning. Others may say that what you eat is more important than your level of physical exercise.
Some people might think that they are leading an adventurous life by traveling or climbing mountains, while others may consider themselves healthy because of their level of social interaction with friends and family. Or how often they meditate. Or how little they smoke or drink etc.
No matter how each person defines health, there are numerous benefits associated with living a healthier lifestyle. The intention of this post is to inspire us all to think about what a healthy lifestyle means to us, so that we know what we are aiming for.
