Just as life is a great gift from God Almighty, so is good health an invaluable gift of nature. Fitness plays an important role for us to take full advantage of the joys and pleasures of life. Only a healthy person can fully enjoy the blessings and pleasures given by Allah Almighty.
Our body’s automated system of protecting itself
Nature has devised an automated system in our body to protect our health and maintain our body for a certain period, which when considered, makes the human intellect stunned.
Inside the human body, an automated immune system is always active, which automatically eliminates the many diseases that occur in our body. For example, our mouths produce a lot of germs every day that are very harmful to various organs and especially our hearts. But when a person walks fast and when he opens his mouth to breathe fast, many dangerous germs are killed as a result.
It is as if proper exercise gives our body countless benefits that are not usually known to us.

Research seems to prove that as a person becomes old, their arteries begin to harden and create hurdles in their veins. Hardening of the arteries can also lead to heart disease. Light exercise not only softens the muscles and clears the mind, but also enables the veins to dilate more.
Therefore, proper exercise should be made a routine of life. For older people, just walking around the house may be enough.
A healthy and proper diet can do wonders
Every human being wants to live a healthy life with himself and his loved ones. A good and proper diet, along with many other factors, is essential for living a healthy life.
Therefore, a diet that is full of nutrients should be part of your daily life. The human body needs water, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals daily for better growth. Therefore, one should try to use the same food which is prepared according to the principles of hygiene.
For good health, if one lives by keeping some basic things in mind, one can avoid many complications. For example, cleanliness and hygiene are very important for the good development of human health. Eating and drinking times, work, and balance in work and eating a balanced diet can be very beneficial for human health.

What healthy eating really means
Healthy eating does not mean that a person eats full plates and does not leave room for breathing.
Some people pay a lot of attention to meat, while a burger of beef a week or a large stack of meat a month is considered very much sufficient for the needs of the human body. You can also eat some fish and chicken once a week.
The rest of the protein the human body needs should be supplemented by vegetables. Fruits and vegetables should be an essential part of our diet. Proper use of all the different things that nature has created for us can be useful in maintaining human health. Therefore, instead of consuming more than one thing, you should eat a variety of foods so that the body gets the nutrition it needs.
A study shows that a diet rich in fiber is very useful for humans. Researchers say that the human diet should include 25 grams of fiber per day, while 30 grams of fiber is more appropriate. Fiber naturally lowers the risk of diseases such as heart attack, stroke and diabetes. It also helps control weight, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. Fiber can be obtained from fruits, vegetables, bread, pasta made from peeled grains, pulses, lentils, fruits, and seeds.
A normal-sized banana contains about three grams of fiber. Half a cup of barley contains 9 grams, a large slice of brown bread 2 grams, a cup of cooked lentils 4 grams, cooked potatoes with peels 2 grams, a carrot 3 grams, apples with peels 4 grams of fiber.

Our health is related not only to our bodies but also to our emotions

Therefore, adopt good morals and avoid bad morals. This can be extremely useful for human health and its soul

So use pure foods for the purification of your soul and the health of your body. Incorporate pure words and positive attitudes into your thoughts, intentions, and ideas so that our body and our soul become pure.
