The sport and its execution is something that we are always defending. It is important to do sports activity to be in perfect condition and keep us active. It is true that playing sports will help us improve our health considerably and feel stronger, energetic and young. But not everything is to practice a sport without more. There are other precautions that we must take into account and for this reason, on this occasion we want to see if our lifestyle is more important than doing sports when it comes to gaining health.
The benefits of sports are well known and it is highly recommended to carry it out. But in the long run the habits of life are much more important. Above all, there is an important point to consider, such as food. As we have said on previous occasions, almost all the results we are going to get when it comes to training and being healthy have a lot to do with eating and living habits. Therefore in this post we want to highlight the importance of them over the simple fact of sports.
Sport is essential for the body
It is true that sport activates the metabolism and makes the circulation and muscles that make up the body are in perfect condition to respond to any contingency that we suffer in day to day. But the muscles are not a part of an automaton, but they nourish and respond according to how we are. That’s why our way of life will weigh more than the training we do.
Food, a very important habit
First let’s focus on how important it is to follow a healthy and balanced diet . Eat balanced foods in which the doses of nutrients are adequate in fundamental when it comes to getting a body in better condition. Fruits and vegetables, vegetables, high quality proteins, essential fatty acids that can be found in olive oils, avocados, nuts … It is important to take care of food and opt for natural foods prepared by ourselves, leaving aside those of industrial origin.
Caring for food will help us feel much better , more energetic. Besides being helping to have a stronger health, we will achieve much more. At the end the feeding is directly linked with the performance. If we are well fed we will achieve a better performance when practicing any sport activity. Hence, not only sports makes us better at a general level.
Rest, another habit to keep in mind
Rest is another point that we need to take care of. It is a habit of healthy living that we can not ignore. Resting the correct hours daily is essential for the body to function properly. The average daily sleep must exceed seven hours . During sleep our body releases a series of hormones that wake up we do not release and that make us recover from fatigue. In addition, these are necessary for proper neuronal and muscular functioning.
Caring for food and sports is essential, but allocating hours to sleep is equally important and that is why we must include it in our daily plans . It is a good habit that needs to be acquired. In addition, the dream will help us regulate the metabolism, make us give much more, feel and see us younger, make us consume less food throughout the day …
Eliminate vices such as alcohol and tobacco
Among everyday habits we should rule out alcohol and tobacco. Both the only thing they do is increase the levels of toxins in the body, which intervene in the malfunction of certain organs. In the case of tobacco, the circulation of blood and the state of the respiratory system will be affected. With alcohol, it is the kidneys and the liver that are directly affected, since the overload to which we subject them is high.
In short, we must keep in mind that not only does sport help us to be healthy. The sport is a part of that whole , but the different habits of life are equally important when it comes to getting a health in perfect condition. After all, sports activity is another habit that should be present in our lives and that will contribute its bit. It will not do much to do much sport if we are not well fed and rested. The ideal is to achieve a perfect balance between all of them to feel in perfect condition.
