Fashion has its charm forever, but nutrition and fitness are fast picking up on the same lines as fashion-people fall head over heels in love with anything that is introduced in the market such as a new diet, some quirky superfood or an exercise routine. This might work out with fashion but when it comes to health, changing from one diet to another or likewise will never benefit our health. Instead, we need to create and stick with a diet and exercise routine that will have a long-lasting impact on our body.
When we have the motivation in us to create the change, this motivation stays as the strong cause that keeps us grounded to our objective in times of difficulty. For this, we need to define our objectives clearly and question ourselves whether our habits fulfill these objectives and if so, how. No goal is achievable without proper planning, commitment and execution. Once these three are firmly done in a systematic manner, no one can beat us to our target.

The five low-risk factors include:

The study emphasizes again and again on the importance of following a healthy lifestyle for improved longevity. Sadly, not many people are eager to pursue a healthy lifestyle ignoring all the fancy foods and beverages available. It’s high time that people begin to assess themselves on these five parameters and set their goals accordingly. You might exercise and avoid smoking but you party every weekend and indulge in drinks which raises your calorie intake rapidly. Otherwise, it might also be that you exercise daily and avoid smoking and drinking but food is one thing that devastates all other efforts. Analyzing and determining your area of weakness helps you focus on this particular area and set things right. You can start with one weak area and progress towards the rest one after the other. Some workable and interesting tips to start off include:
