The way we choose to live our life dictates just how much we get out of life. Harrogate certainly promotes healthy lifestyle choices with no end of vegan, vegetarian and healthy menus when you go out. Open park spaces, local council awareness campaigns for youngsters and adults combating the fatigues of stress at work… trying to get that work – life balance.
Poor lifestyle choices will ultimately end up with a poor level of physical and mental health, fatigue, dissatisfaction, low self-esteem and even diseases.
What exactly are the right lifestyle choices for our overall wellness and how does your town help with this?
The concept of healthy living nowadays is based on the perception that “wellbeing” is closely related to regular exercise, while for others it means taking care of yourself, i.e. to attain a balanced lifestyle with as little stress as possible, without necessarily having to devote oneself to hours of exercise. Some of us jumble up the concept of “wellbeing” with healthy food, i.e. eating lots of fruit, vegetables and fish, topped with a genuine desire to eat only organic and local produce.
All these concepts are moving in the right direction. The Wellness dimension of “Lifestyle” is all about your choices – making sure you eat healthily and get plenty of rest and sleep is part of it. Making sure your interact socially and look after your emotional wellbeing is another aspect. Harrogate caters for this with numerous community groups for all ages and walks of life and its countless social and leisure offers.
