‘A healthy body has a healthy mind’ is a common saying. By keeping fit one can achieve many things in life. The two most important ingredients for healthy living are exercise and nutrition. A good walk everyday in fresh air and controlled diet can keep you healthy all your life.

Businessmen and Industrialists enjoy a good run or jog before going to their boardroom. This keeps them alert in their negotiations. Any form of exercise like walking your pet or working out at the gym or a good swim at the pool can refresh the mind as well as body.
Exercise removes the extra flab in your body and allows blood circulation. After the age of forty we tend to put on weight and this slows down the pace of work. A good exercise routine can keep the weight in check and help you carryout your daily chores with ease.
Working out at the gym can also help in keeping fit and healthy. Spinning is a good form of exercise and fifteen minutes a day pedaling at the cycle can keep you fresh and active through out the day. This also helps in exercising your lower body where we generally tend to put on weight after middle age. Aerobics and yoga are also different forms of exercises which can help you lead a hale and hearty life.
Another aspect besides exercise is to eat healthy food. A balanced diet can help in keeping body weight in check.

Fruits and vegetables keep a person healthy and help to maintain the minerals and vitamin intake required for the body. At the same time it does not increase the body weight. Sugar and butter can be supplemented. Avoid full cream milk and instead go in for skimmed milk where there is no fat.
