This should go without saying, but we’ll say it anyways: our health is the most valuable thing we have. Forget money, new clothes, Snapchat celebrities and other trivial things – your health is what should always be at a high point, no matter what.

However, is there really the best way to keep your well-being in check? While different people will swear by different things, we’ve decided to take a look at the three most popular methods of staying healthy. In that name, let’s dive into saunas, exercising and dieting in order to help you determine which health-preserving method is the best.

Sweating It Off

Saunas are probably the most popular part of the spa trend, seeing as many countries in the world have a rather developed sauna trend that keeps on gaining more fans as the years go by. But if you’ve thought a sauna is only good for making you sweat, you were wrong.

More than one research experiment has shown that the high temperature one can find in a sauna may actually help expand the blood vessels and in doing so give us a circulation boost while decreasing our blood pressure. Hypertension is a very real and very frequent problem for folks nowadays, which means the sauna is the place to go if you’re having heart problems.

Sweating in a sauna can also aid your muscles when it comes to strength and power, so if you’re in training, make sure to stop by a sauna every once in a while to get that much-needed boost.

Running for your Health

Everyone knows that in order to be healthy you need to stay fit and in order stay fit, you have to exercise. But which exercise is the best one?
Countless experts, doctors and gym-goers claim that running is by far the best possible exercise you can do. It’s an all-around activity that allows you to engage nearly every muscle in your body while also providing you with health benefits in regard to your heart, lungs, bones and more.

In fact, each and every exercise ever created has a certain benefit to offer. However, when it comes to giving as much as possible without requiring you to learn complicated mechanics and motions, running definitely takes the cake.

Smart Eating for a Healthy Body

Finally, we’re getting to dieting. Now, there are certain opinions that revolve around being big-boned or having obesity integrated into your genes in such a way that you’ll be fat and unhealthy no matter how much or how little you eat. Luckily, those of us who have common sense know that this is all just nonsense.

It’s a fact that your body will only be as healthy as you make it by being active and eating smart. In other words, if you keep gorging down on junk food you shouldn’t expect to have a six pack, clean skin or a healthy heart.

And while different foods can provide you with different benefits, there is one diet that’s probably the best when it comes to giving us as much as possible, much like running is among other exercises. The Mediterranean diet is the eating plan most nutritionists promote to be the healthiest because it includes almost all food groups and a large variety of foods and flavors.
