A healthy lifestyle is a way of living that lowers the risk of being seriously ill or dying early. Not all diseases are preventable, but a large proportion of deaths, particularly those from coronary heart disease and lung cancer, can be avoided. Scientific studies have identified certain types of behavior that contribute to the development of non communicable diseases and early death. Health is not just about avoiding disease. It is also about physical, mental and social wellbeing. When a healthy lifestyle is adopted, a more positive role model is provided for other people in the family, particularly children. Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine believed health was achieved via balance of mind, body and environment. It is true that our thoughts and emotions play a critical role in all aspects of our health. This means that by taking care of our psychological well being, we will be able to prevent medical illness or speed our recovery when we are sick.  Health and wellness coaching will facilitate you to connect with your inner self and explore various dimensions of wellness.
