Which way would you like to take in order to improve your health?
A. eat more healthy food or healthier food
B. do more exercise
C. reduce stress
People who want to healthier may have nutritious and balanced diet or exercise more. However, there is an alternative option which I think is more efficient in achieving this goal. It is relieving the pressure in our daily lives / The reduction of stress contributes to improved wellbeing.
Most people find it difficult to maintain a healthy diet since it requires people to restrain their appetite for unhealthful yet delicious foods. Rome However ，many of the foods may be so mouth-watering that people are unable to resist the temptation. Those people who seem to have the strong resolution are however likely to break the fast, ironically 。It thus follows that making dietary adjustments is not recommended, since it can hardly be executed. For example, I used to try this method, and failed however, because the diverse tempting foods lured me into havinga feast at every meal.
Physical exercise indeed enhances our fitness and overall health; the function of our organs improves; our muscles and joints are strengthened; and our minds unwind. This optimal effect is achieved if we are focused on the exercise . However, so many of the us, busy professionals or students, in so many cases are actually absent-minded during exercise, and hardly can the mechanical movements of our body, without our heart put in them, improve our health.
Either infeasible or futile, those two methods areunadoptable, and theeffectual one is decreasing our stress levels. Having unstrained nerves and mind makes a healthy person. Not feeling nervous, one can haveunobstructed train of thoughts, a healthy state of mind, or with the mind cleared,a person’s body functions well. Take myself as an example, I used to suffer from a lot of stress, lacking vigor and feeing exhausted.I tried mediation, a popular stress-reduction therapy, which diverted my attention from the daily struggles and vacated my mind. Gradually, my nerves are loosened and revitalized, as a result.
Admittedly, the other two ways may be adopted by some people. My choice is however different. Stress-reduction has proven to be an effective way of improving health in my case.
