Top Six Rules to Keep a Healthy Living Style


In today's busy life style, you are probably buried in intense
schedule, work stress, family duties etc.... No longer do you have the
leisure of relaxing at beach, spa or simply your favorite places. How
can you still keep a healthy life style in this busy schedule? Here are
the top six rules you need to follow:
[LIST=1][*]Eat Healthy Food - 20 Minutes Cooking for a One Day Healthy MealIf you dine out because of work schedule, do not go for heavy
cheese, butter, or cream foods. You should pick seafood or meat
together with vegetables. A combination of vegetable is a MUST in all
your meals. Avoid fast food places; go for dining places that has
varieties of selections. Couple of best restaurants that I recommend:
[URL="http://www.elephantbar.com/"]Elephant Bar[/URL]

Elephant Bar has varieties of Asian fusion foods at great prices. No
matter what age you are or what type of foods you prefer, you can
always find things that fit your taste. Senior and child have discount
prices. The restaurant has great settings for family, business
gathering or dating.
[URL="http://mayflower-seafood.com/"]MayFlower Seafood Restaurant[/URL]

Mayflower Seafood Restaurant is one of the best Cantonese style Chinese
restaurants. It also offers Cantonese dim sum on weekends. Dishes are
of authentic Cantonese style which you probably don't have the skill to
make at home. Desert is free.
If you do have have 20 minutes before your lunch or dinner, here are some great yet simple recipes (http://healthbeauty.requestfill.com/recipe.php - broken link) that you can make delicious dishes at home.[*]Exercise at Least Once a Week - No Matter How Busy You AreFor people who excuse themselves on "no time to exercise", this
excuse does not make sense. Let me ask you, do you have time to take
shower? Yes you do, and that takes 20 minutes. Do you have to buy
grocery? Yes, you do as you HAVE to buy it and that takes more than 20
minutes. So you should have another 20 minutes for something you have
to do -- that is EXERCISE. Ok, so now you can set aside 20 minutes for
exercise, what's the best exercise for 20 minutes or longer? First go
outdoor rather then staying indoor. Oxygen exercise is much better than
indoor exercise. Several exercises are excellent:

Tennis is one of the best whole body exercises
you should have on regular base. For people who look to shape their
body, Tennis is an excellent whole body balanced exercise. If you can
be persistent on playing tennis for 1-2 hours a week, your muscle will
be tighter and body shape will be much nicer in a few weeks! If you
just exercise by yourself, find a court that has the tennis wall so you
can hit the ball by yourself.
Badminton is the similar as tennis, but its
running scope is much smaller, and most of the courts are indoor. In
terms of exercise effect, it's secondary to tennis.

Be a 24 hour fitness member! Swimming is another balanced whole body exercise.
Running by yourself could be boring, but it's again a balanced whole
body exercise, and you don't need to go to a court, just run nearby
your house or around a park.[*]Detoxify Your Body - Go to Spa or Sauna at Gym If you do exercise outdoor, then you can go to gym for Spa and
Sauna. Spa and Sauna makes you sweat and detoxify your body. Skin pore
will open which fades out dead skin layer.[*]Take Foot Massage by SpaAccording to the principles of reflexology, different parts of the
foot correspond in actions with different parts of the body. A toe
massage can assuage sinus pain, while applying pressure on the arch
soothes a tummy ache. The chart here (http://www.learnfootmassage.com/foot_massage_chart.htm - broken link)
can help simplify the complex healing art of reflexology. However, be
aware when looking at this chart, foot massage and foot reflexology are
different topics. Foot massage leans more toward using rubbing and
manipulation versus applying direct pressure on specific points of the
If you go to spa, use the spa pressure to massage foot pressure points.
[*]Sleep 7-8 Hours a DayTake a hot bath before sleeping. Sleeping enough hours is one of the
most important elements in keeping a healthy life. No matter how well
you eat, if you don't sleep well, you WON'T feel good.[*]Avoid Smoking and DrinkingSmoking and drinking is your health enemy. Stay away from them.[/LIST]
