In addition to eating well and being active, true health includes getting enough sleep, practicing mindfulness, managing stress, keeping your mind and body fit, connecting socially, and more. A healthy lifestyle includes a balanced diet. This doesn't mean eliminating important food groups from your diet or limiting yourself to the number of calories per day. A complete diet involves eating most food groups at every meal.
Meats, dairy products, fruits and vegetables are important components of a meal that will ensure your body is healthy. Living a healthy life is based on participating in the world around you. People who lead healthy and fulfilling lives live actively rather than simply being alive.
