What is better for health … exercise, good food or good sleep?

Auckland: Whether it’s physical exertion, a balanced diet or a good night’s sleep, all three are considered important for good health. But now New Zealand medical experts have discovered that a good night’s sleep is the most beneficial to our health.

The online study, which ran from 2018 to 2019 in the United States and New Zealand, involved 1,111 volunteers between the ages of 18 and 25.

During the research, participants were asked about their daily routines and health conditions through various questionnaires.
The study, conducted by Shay Ruby Wickham and colleagues at the University of Otago in New Zealand, was published online in the research journal Frontiers in Psychology.

The second number is physical exercise, which includes everything from walking to regular exercise; The third is a balanced diet that is a proper combination of all the important nutrients.

All of the study participants who had a good night’s sleep had significantly better mental and physical health than those who were eating the same balanced diet and exercising more or less the same amount of physical exertion. Were.

The study found that physical activity, diet and sleep were only clearly linked to mental and physical health, so a more comprehensive and long-term study was needed to examine the effects of these three aspects on general health.
