Being healthy requires effort. A lot of effort. You can’t just tread water with whatever condition defined your twenties and hope that will apply into your thirties. Systems of order fall into chaos. People age. Demise is always waiting at the fringes of life, and doing nothing about it won’t help. If you’re sedentary and isolated, it will chop decades off your life.
The good news is, getting in good shape, staying in good shape, and preserving that youthful experience isn’t impossible. You can look like you’re thirty until you hit about sixty, if you’re proactive about it. Following, we’ll explore a few tips to help you do so.
Eat the right foods. You need to avoid any GMOs—not because they’re necessarily bad, but because they’re an “unknown quantity”. There’s no way to know the full effects of such foods on human beings until individuals have been fed such foods and monitored throughout their entire lives. GMOs haven’t been around a full human generation. There’s no way to know.
Avoid anything unknown that’s touted as the be-all and end-all of health or nutrition. The right diet will include organic foods. Meats are fine, as long as they’re organic, they’re not laden with preservatives, there aren’t strange antibiotics that cause side effects, or anything like that. You’re looking for food that will spoil inside a few weeks if left unattended in the fridge.
Twinkies may last many years—of course they’re not good for you. You want natural oils, fats, proteins, vegetables, and fruits. These foods need to be eaten in proper quantities—even healthy foods will initiate obesity if too many are eaten too often. Your intake needs to match your exercise.
Garbage in, garbage out. If you’re watching nasty gory horror films, or vapid ephemeral reality TV cultivated to be junk food for the brain, those things are going to be reflected in your day-to-day activities. What you desire to do, how you want to live, who you want to be with—all those things will be influenced based on what you put into your brain.
You need to clean out your “brain food”. Focus on that which is beautiful, inspiring, interesting, engaging, educational, and which will ultimately make you a better person. Avoid “junk food” entertainment.
Thirty minutes of strenuous exercise five days a week is advisable for anybody. When you’re thirty, you need to push the envelope until you reach a physical zenith, then keep yourself there. Now you can work too hard—when you sweat, all the vital mineral nutrients of your body leak out. So you’ve got to replace them with healthy supplements.
There’s a balance here, hiring a nutritionist may be wise; at minimum, do some research online to see what you need for your age and gender.
If you’re in shape, and feeding your mind as well as your body properly, you may still deal with depression if you don’t have a strong social circle that you can plug into. Human beings are social consciousnesses, and that means you must respect the social element of society. Find the right people, build relationships with them, and keep those relationships going.
You should have medical solutions available for general checkups, maintenance, and emergencies. The right dental insurance can provide you discounts for annual or biannual tooth cleanings. Look for varying healthcare solutions.
Have the right medical solutions at your fingertips when you need them. Find and maintain strong interpersonal relationships. Eat the right foods. Exercise regularly. Put the right things in your mind. These five things will help you attain and maintain solid health into your late thirties and beyond.
