As the very challenging year 2020 comes to an end, we all move forward together towards 2021, taking with us many important lessons of life. Highlight of which undeniably remains the importance of living a healthy life and having a healthy body.
Health is of preeminently of utmost importance, but many of us conveniently take our good health for granted, do not prioritize eating well and exercising until our health deteriorates. We don’t genuinely acknowledge how amazingly complex and highly-effective things our bodies do and we tend to ignore them until it’s too late and we get unwell or old, hence, our bodies cease to function properly.
On the other hand, when our bodies are maintained in healthy working condition by eating right- timely- nutritious food, following a regular workout regime as well as by avoiding unnecessary stress, every aspect of our life experiences the benefit of it and we look and feel good. The positive effects of this good health adds greatly to our overall happiness and aids in living a better life. We must strive to live in a balanced state so that we can be at our optimal best level in each and every aspect of our lives and live a more fulfilling life. However this can happen by making the right choices regarding our health.
So here I am sharing 20 healthy lifestyle quotes to help inspire you and kick-start afresh a new thriving and flourishing way of living.
“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.”Mahatma Gandhi
“To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.”Buddha
“Happiness is the highest form of health.”Dalai Lama
“Healthy citizens are the greatest asset any country can have.”Winston Churchill
“Health is the crown on the well person’s head that only the ill person can see.”Robin Sharma
“If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with.”Deepak Chopra
“Health is a state of complete harmony of the body, mind and spirit. When one is free from physical disabilities and mental distractions, the gates of the soul open.”B.K.S. Iyengar
“Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.”Plato
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”Hippocrates
“When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot manifest, strength cannot fight, wealth becomes useless, and intelligence cannot be applied.”Herophilus
“To insure good health: Eat lightly, breathe deeply, live moderately, exercise, cultivate cheerfulness, and maintain an interest in life.”William Londen
“A further sign of health is that we don’t become undone by fear and trembling, but we take it as a message that it’s time to stop struggling and look directly at what’s threatening us.”Pema Chodron
“No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.”Moses Maimonides
“The gut is the seat of all feelings. Polluting the gut not only cripples your immune system, but also destroys your sense of empathy, the ability to identify with other humans. Bad bacteria in the gut creates neurological issues. Autism can be cured by detoxifying the bellies of young children. People who think that feelings come from the heart are wrong. The gut is where you feel the loss of a loved one first. It’s where you feel pain and a heavy bulk of your emotions. It’s the central base of your entire immune system. If your gut is loaded with negative bacteria, it affects your mind. Your heart is the seat of your conscience. If your mind is corrupted, it affects your conscience. The heart is the Sun. The gut is the Moon. The pineal gland is Neptune, and your brain and nervous system (5 senses) are Mercury. What affects the moon or sun affects the entire universe within. So, if you poison the gut, it affects your entire nervous system, your sense of reasoning, and your senses.”Suzy Kassem
“Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness.”Edward Smith-Stanley
“A feeble body makes a feeble mind. I do not know what doctors cure us of, but I know this: they infect us with very deadly diseases, cowardice, timidity, credulity, the fear of death. What matters is that if they make the dead walk, we have no need of corpses; they fail to give us men, and it is men we need.”Rousseau, Jean-Jacques
“A healthy body is a guest-chamber for the soul; a sick body is a prison.”Marcus Valerius Martialis
“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.”Ann Wigmore
“The human body is incredible. Part of what makes it so impressive (apart from the concept of consciousness and self awareness) is its ability to regenerate itself. Your outer layer of skin, the epidermis, replaces itself every 35 days. You are given a new liver every six weeks (a human liver can regenerate itself completely even if as little as 25% remains of it). Your stomach lining replaces itself every 4 days, and the stomach cells that come into contact with digesting food are replaced every 5 minutes. Our entire skeletal structures are regenerated every 3 months. Your entire brain replaces itself every two months. And the entire human body, right down to the last atom, is replaced every 5-7 years.”Brent Lambert
“Your mental state should always remain calm. Even if some anxiety occurs, as it is bound to in life, you should always be calm. Like a wave, which rises from the water and dissolves back into the water, these disturbances are very short, so they should not affect your basic mental attitude. If you remain calm your blood pressure and so on remains more normal and as a result your health will improve.” Tenzin Gyatso,The Dalai Lama
