Healthy lifestyle - Definition

May 2017


Definition


A healthy lifestyle, excluding any damaging influences, defines the positive and voluntary measures a person can implement to maintain good mental and physical health. This includes healthy habits in terms of diet, treatment of the body, sex, and the environment. A healthy lifestyle involves oxygenation, hydration, nutrition, physical exercise, and also avoiding stress, smoking, alcoholism, sexually transmitted diseases, and poor hygiene in the living environment. All these positive measures have a positive influence on life expectancy.
