Tips To Help You Start Living Healthy In 2022

We’re all encouraged to live a healthy lifestyle, but what does that involve and how do we get there? Health doesn’t just entail eating right or exercising. True health incorporates other areas we might not give much thought to, like positivity and self-care. Here, we share with you seven fantastic ways you can get healthy – and stay healthy – in 2022.

1. Follow a Balanced Diet

The saying “everything in moderation” really goes a long way. A healthy diet full of a variety of fruits, vegetables, proteins, grains, nuts and healthy fats helps to keep our bodies and minds in proper working order. There are foods you’ll want to limit, though. Processed foods might taste great, but they often carry a hefty amount of salt which can trigger high blood pressure and heart disease.

2. Embrace Positivity

Negative people or situations can trigger disordered eating and low moods. Look at the people in your life and the things that take up your time, and if something or someone brings you a lot of negative feelings, it might be a sign you need to cut ties. At the same time, work to let go of negative self-talk. A positive self-regard leads to a more positive lifestyle. Visit

3. Keep Moving

Exercise has been proven to lower the risk of disease, increase bone density, and even help us live longer. But how much is enough? The general recommendation is to engage in 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity every day.

4. Know Your Stats

Having an idea of your overall health can help you identify areas you might need to improve. A blood test is a simple way of pinpointing any concerns. Your doctor can recommend particular things you might need to monitor or check, like your blood pressure, blood sugar levels and cholesterol.

5. Stay Hydrated

Without enough water, our bodies are unable to function normally, remove waste, and transport nutrients and oxygen. Adults need, on average, three litres of water a day. If you lose more water due to exercise, heavy perspiration or frequent urination, you will need to drink more regularly.

6. Talk About It

With mental illnesses like depression on the rise, more people find themselves feeling isolated and alone. Talking to a trusted friend or health professional about how you’re feeling can offer you the help you need to restore positive mental health.

7. Stop Smoking

Smoking is an addictive behaviour that carries no health benefits. Smokers are at greater risk of serious health issues, including lung disease, heart attack and stroke. Your family and friends can also be affected by inhaling second-hand smoke. It’s never too late to quit, and there are many support options available to help you give up smoking.

    The food was good and the haggis was tasty.
    However, Floata's service was not acceptable.
    1. We didn't get the Hoshin Sauce for the wrap
    2. Most dishes didn't come with serving spoon.
    3. We had to look for a knife to cut open the haggis.
    4. The presentation of the Crispy Chicken was terrible. The chef just tossed the chicken pieces back to the plate without trying to make it look like a chicken. I suspected that the Chef had pocketed a few pieces for himself. Not acceptable.
    5. They failed to give us clean plates after each course.
    6. They failed to bring us rice bowls for the fried rice.
    7. They should not have brought out the mango pudding in a plate. Every guest should get a serving of the mango pudding in a clean bowl with a spoon.
    8. The oil that used for frying the taro basket passed its prime. The oil was ready to turn into biodiesel.
    9. I don't know whether they paid any attention while cleaning the new glasses. I noticed a sticker was still intact with a wine glass.
    10. When a waiter took away an empty plate, he simply tossed the serving spoon to another plate of the food. Not acceptable.
    I hope that you will reflect that to Floata's management.

    Thank you for the comments. I will indeed be taking your comments to Floata management. We try our best. There are so many elements that go into the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner – food, music, poetry, audience participation. Every element is important. And “presentation” is also a big part of the dinner too – both on stage and on the dinner table.
    Management was given directions:
    – bring a knife with each haggis (table guests like to cut their own haggis, and do their own “Address to a Haggis”)
    – After the appetizers are served, bring each dish out every 20 minutes…. we waited about 45 minutes before the soup came out. This really affects programming, because we have blocked in “eating time” for the audience.
    – By the time the haggis came out, we had to revamp some of our programming. Because you can't dig into the haggis, without first performing “Address to a Haggis.”
    We did taste-test the food at a rehearsal dinner 2 weeks prior to the event. And the food was very good as well as the service. We did change some of the courses.
    There are always unexpected surprises to any large event. Our expected audience size jumped dramatically in the last week due to media stories. Rather than turn people away on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we opted to be inclusive and continue to accommodate late comers. After guests started arriving at 5pm, we still had to add 3 tables to accommodate guests – partly due to missing guest lists.
    Hopefully next year's event will sell out quickly, and we will limit the audience size ahead of time.
    I am thinking of re-imagining the 2010 Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner for next year. It doesn't have to be in a Chinese restaurant. It could be in a military drill hall… It could be in a hotel ballroom… It could be in Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria!
    And yes… the haggis was exceptionally good this year. Thank you Peter Black & Sons!
