“Good health and good sense are two of life’s greatest blessings”, said Pubilius Syrus. Some people say that sayings are just there to entertain us. Really though, sayings can be very empowering. In order to keep those laudable blessing with us, we have to maintain our healthy eating, cleanliness, injury and illness prevention, exercise, and of course, other healthy habits. You can stay super healthy surprisingly easily.
Eating healthy is one easy, fun way to stay healthy and by doing that, you can do and eat anything in moderation, because remember, moderation is always the key. Just keep in mind not to skip meals. If you do skip meals, then you might become anemic or have anemia. Being anemic means that you don’t have enough iron in your diet, which can put you in a weak state. Another thing anemia does is that you might be in a poor condition even before you knew you had it, which can’t do justice for you. Especially not for kids. Water is more critical than you think too. Without water for three days, you can die! Water purifies your skin to help prevent acne. Like almost everyone is my family says, “Hydrated skin is happy skin, and happy skin, is clear skin.” An average 5th grader needs 7 to 8 cups of water a day, and that amount increases as you get older. A good way of keeping healthy is not by eating that much junk food. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat junk food, but not exactly junk food is always junk food. Unhealthy food is called junk food if you eat it almost all the time. Like a cookie is okay every once in a while, but maybe not fries every day. By doing this, you can still eat good stuff and stay healthy. A very good thing to keep in mind is to eat fruits and vegetables for vitamins and minerals. All the amount of vegetables you need are 2 ½ cups per day. For
