The health jigsaw

Need some guidance to a healthy lifestyle? You could view healthy living as a jigsaw puzzle made up of many different pieces, all crucial to the finished picture but all of different shapes and sizes. If one piece is missing entirely, the overall picture isn’t complete. For example, you could be a fitness fanatic who eats healthily and never drinks alcohol but you haven’t found a way of coping with the high levels of stress your job brings and you can’t remember the last time you went for a health check. Or you could be someone bursting with energy, who survives on four hours sleep a night, thrives on stress and never gets ill but who lives on junk food and caffeine.
