Here are five lifestyle guidelines which can help you feel more energised, more positive and in charge of your health. With simple changes, you’ll be taking a giant step towards preventing lifestyle diseases.</p> <span> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Inline%20Images/Health%20-%20Five%20Pillars%20-%20Inline%20Graphic.jpg" alt="" style="width:602px;" />​ </figure></span> <span> <div class="mobile-scroll">​​ <table> <caption><strong>​The five pillars of good health</strong></caption> <thead><tr><th colspan="2"></th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td> <strong>Pillar 1:</strong> Eat a balanced diet </td><td>A healthy diet involves eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, choosing whole grains over processed foods, avoiding junk food, limiting sugar, salt and alcohol, and drinking lots of water. It also means quitting smoking! A healthy, balanced diet helps us to get all the nutrients our bodies need, giving us energy. </td></tr><tr><td> <strong>Pillar 2: </strong>Exercise regularly</td><td>Moving is good for the body and for the mind – and it increases your energy levels. Limit the amount of inactive hours in your day and make exercise a fun part of your daily routine. Choose an activity you enjoy, or join a team sport. Even a brisk daily walk of 30 minutes makes a big difference.  </td></tr><tr><td> <strong>Pillar 3</strong>: Stay positive</td><td>Research suggests that thinking positively boosts the immune system. This helps fight diseases. Being positive involves setting goals in life, believing in yourself, looking at the bright side of a situation, spending time with positive people, doing activities/hobbies you enjoy and reaching out to someone when you are feeling down or unhappy.</td></tr><tr><td rowspan="1">​<strong>Pillar 4:</strong> Reduce stress  </td><td rowspan="1">​Ongoing (chronic) stress affects your physical and mental health significantly. Lower your stress levels with different relaxation techniques like deep breathing or meditation. Make time for fun and laughter, and try to avoid stressful situations. It’s best not to manage your stress with substances like cigarettes, alcohol or drugs. </td></tr><tr><td rowspan="1">​<strong>Pillar 5:</strong> Maintain a healthy weight </td><td rowspan="1">​This will be much easier to do if the pillars above are strong. If you need to lose weight and are struggling, speak to a health care worker at your nearest clinic. Losing weight is much easier when you have support! </td></tr></tbody></table></div>​​</span><br><span> <div class="infographic bg-font-adjust-bg">​​​​​​​​​ <figure><img class="responsive" alt="placeholder" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Inline%20Images/Health%20Staying%20Healthy%20Five%20Pillars%20-%20Thumbnail.jpg" /></figure><figcaption> <p> <span class="infoGraphicSpan">PDF</span><span class="infoGraphicSpan">​​<strong>five pillars of health</strong></span></p> <a title="5 pillars of good health" class="btn dark-blue" href="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/documentcentre/Documents/Graphics%20and%20educational%20material/Five%20Pillars%20of%20Health%20-%20Poster.pdf" target="_blank"><i class="icon download"></i>Download PDF</a> </figcaption> </div></span> <span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​Visit a treatment facility​​​​​​​</h2></span> <p> <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Departments/City%20Health%20Department">City Health</a> aims to maintain and improve the health of all communities in Cape Town by providing free and professional primary healthcare services. </p><p>Working closely with our local and provincial partners, we pay special attention to the most common infectious illnesses in our city, like <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/Personal-health/Contagious-and-chronic-diseases/TB">TB</a> and <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/Personal-health/Sexual-health/Hiv-and-aids">HIV</a>, as well as chronic illnesses like diabetes and hypertension. </p><p>If you are sick, you can visit one of <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/See-all-City-facilities/Our-service-facilities/Clinics%20and%20healthcare%20facilities">our clinics</a> for primary care.
