extremes are bad and for example, choosing a diet that is too strict to lose weight or starting a fad diet can be a behavior that puts our health at risk.

2. Eat natural foods. Reduce consumption of processed and ultra-processed products, have a balance in the consumption of fruits, vegetables, legumes, dairy products, foods of animal origin and fats.

3. Have a correct sleep discipline. Establish a regular time to go to sleep and wake up, avoid excessive alcohol intake four hours before bedtime, and not smoking, avoid caffeine six hours before bedtime, this includes coffee and some types of tea.

Other points would be to look for a suitable temperature in the room, eliminate as much light as possible, this understood because there are hormones that are secreted at night in the presence of darkness, among other things and hence it is important to sleep from six to eight hours a day, this for adults, with adequate rest; that is to say, it is not the same I went to sleep but I did not rest, I slept and rested.

4. Perform physical activity. The new guidelines of the World Health Organization on physical activity and sedentary habits in 2021 establish that adults should accumulate a minimum of between 150 and 300 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week, either a minimum of 75 to 150 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity, or an equivalent combination of moderate- and vigorous-intensity activities.

The adults should also perform moderate-intensity muscle-strengthening activities or higher to work all major muscle groups two or more days a week.

5. Drink water. It is established between 1.5 to 2 liters approximately, however, this also varies greatly by weight and the number of calories you consume in the day, among other factors.

6. Mental health. This includes the psychological, emotional and social well-being, which goes hand in hand at a certain point with reducing stress, since stress generates important changes in our body that affect both our health and our nutrition.

Therefore, leisure activities such as dancing, singing, listening to music, painting, going for a walk, getting to know new places and people, among others, are fundamental, in addition to those already mentioned throughout the previous points. A positive and resilient attitude towards the situations that happen to us on a day-to-day basis will be another key point for maintaining balanced mental health.

As a final point remember that it is very important not only to nourish the body but also the soul.
