WHAT IS A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE?
A healthy lifestyle is comprised of the daily choices you make, which will help you to maintain or improve your overall health and wellbeing. These choices include your sleep, stress, happiness, exercise and nutrition, which are all largely within your control. We have developed a set of healthy guidelines below based on the latest research from leading institutions, lifestyle medicine experts and behavioral scientists.
RENDLE’S HEALTHY LIFESTYLE GUIDELINES:
· Sleeping at least 7 quality hours per night
· Walking a minimum of 30 minutes per day
· Consuming at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day
· Engaging in strength training 2 or more times per week
· Not smoking
· Not drinking too many calories
SLEEP, STRESS, HAPPINESS, EXERCISE AND NUTRITION are linked
There is a common misperception that a healthy lifestyle is just exercising and trying to eat healthily. When you are sleep deprived, very stressed and/or unhappy, you are missing key components of a healthy lifestyle. We believe a healthy lifestyle starts with investing in the quality of your sleep, stress management, mindfulness and positivity. That will pave the way to sustainability.
What is healthy LIFESTYLE LITERACY?
We define HEALTHY LIFESTYLE LITERACY as the degree to which an individual has the capacity to obtain, communicate, process, and understand the basic facts that enable them to make healthy lifestyle choices.
WE MEASURE AND eliminate lifestyle ilLITERACY
HEALTHY LIFESTYLE LITERACY is a prerequisite for sustainable lifestyle improvement and is a leading indicator of a population's likelihood to change. Our metrics measure the levels of healthy lifestyle literacy within organisations. We’ve created tools and data analytics to help you raise literacy levels. Try a pilot and see how you can improve.
HEALTHY LIFESTYLES ARE A SERIES OF DAILY CHOICES
The key word is "choices."
We all have the ability to change our lifestyles, for better and for worse. Over time, positive lifestyle choices lead to happier and healthier people.
CHOICES START WITH KNOWLEDGE
Making the right lifestyle choices starts with HEALTHY LIFESTYLE LITERACY. We’ve created RENDLE RULES, a series of short and simple guidelines that will help boost literacy levels across your population. As we mentioned before, sleep, stress, happiness, exercise and nutrition are all linked. RENDLE RULES will help people understand how these different lifestyle components are connected and what they can do to positively impact their health and happiness on a daily basis.
