Our Basics and Values
We devoted our first topic for explaining our opinion about The Daily Basics of a healthy lifestyle for all age and social groups. We all can realise it in our daily life without an extra effort.
Why The Basics? – Everything in our world starts from small, but strong basic things and actions, and everything happens in a specific order – without order there is no strong basis, there is only chaos.
For example, You can not start your training without warm up, because of higher risk of injuries, so the same in every other action in Your daily life – starting from good and enough sleep in night and positive first “Good morning” for better day. Maybe The Basic for Your day is that “Good morning” with a smile on your face … Think about it!
Of course, this is not a secret that nothing happens just the same way. You need to think about Your own health and body – it is Your duty to yourself and Your family, especially to Your children, because in family we are all one part of that strong basic.
As Buddha said:
“To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear”
Our Basics is also our values. Health is one of basic value in life. With a good and strong health you can work – and work is also an important value.
It sounds simple, but it is an enormous value – to work in all the ways You want (in Your job, in Your home, in Your training ect.).
And of course one of the biggest value in our life is our family, also our friends and all the good people around us. The Daily Basics can be integrated in your daily routine as well.
Do not forget Your closer people – they are the best gift and strength You need together with Your own motivation for doing good things and living better.
If You realize Your Daily Basics and Values, it is very simple to live healthy!
The Daily basic rules:
- Good and enough sleep
- Smile and positive attitude

Even more – sleep is as vital as regular exercise and eating a balanced diet. Qualitative and enough sleep prevents inflammation and physical and mental diseases, and obesity and weight gain, it stabilize and strengthen immune system, prepare us for the next day to concentrate and think better – so it clears our mind too.
The first step you can start with is enough sleep time – there are sleep time recommendations that National Sleep Foundation and World Health Organization recommend, for example younger adults and adults (18-64 years old) sleep range is 7-9 hours. This range differs depending on age groups. Recommendations You can find here: https://www.sleepfoundation.org/press-release/national-sleep-foundation-recommends-new-sleep-times
