Take time to cook
Too many people in developed countries rely on convenience food, when cooking is a lot easier than many think. Not only is cooking a wholesome, nutritious meal good for our health, the process involved can be very relaxing. And there are few more rewarding activities than preparing a tasty and nutritious meal for friends and family.
Ready-made meals and convenience foods are often laden with salt, sugar, fat and preservatives. So, loosening up in the kitchen could drastically improve your overall well-being. What’s more, cooking can be a social event – making it the ideal way to spend quality time with those closest to you. At least once a week, cook a nutritious meal that can be shared with the people you love.
Make time for exercise

A regime of regular exercise – along with a healthy diet – will help you to regulate your weight and keep yourself happy and full of energy.

This 12 weeks fitness plan means there is now no excuse for not getting the exercise your body needs.
Take time to relax
