The healthy lifestyle includes good feeding practices by eating a balanced diet, avoiding junk food… doing regular exercise…” (Landow, 76) Thus, adopting a healthy lifestyle is important to resist different kinds of health problems and it is only possible if we eat a balanced diet, exercise and avoid stress.
