To understand Life style,one must understand what is Life!!
Life according to the source wikipedia..
- Homeostasis: Regulation of the internal environment to maintain a constant state; for example, electrolyte concentration or sweating to reduce temperature.
- Organization: Being structurally composed of one or more cells, which are the basic units of life.
- Metabolism: Transformation of energy by converting chemicals and energy into cellular components (anabolism) and decomposing organic matter (catabolism). Living things require energy to maintain internal organization (homeostasis) and to produce the other phenomena associated with life.
- Growth: Maintenance of a higher rate of anabolism than catabolism. A growing organism increases in size in all of its parts, rather than simply accumulating matter.
- Adaptation: The ability to change over a period of time in response to the environment. This ability is fundamental to the process of evolution and is determined by the organism’s heredity as well as the composition of metabolized substances, and external factors present.
- Response to stimuli: A response can take many forms, from the contraction of a unicellular organism to external chemicals, to complex reactions involving all the senses of multicellular organisms. A response is often expressed by motion, for example, the leaves of a plant turning toward the sun (phototropism) and by chemotaxis.
- Reproduction: The ability to produce new individual organisms, either asexually from a single parent organism, or sexually from two parent organisms.
Ohh so complicated meaning for life..
Let us simplify it.
It means there is a system which has its own way to function and carry the body /matter as a living/alive.
Now if we have a system we need to run it smoothly,service it at times,maintain it for a purpose.
That maintaining way is called style in Living.
It is not a luxury but a necessity.
Thus lifestyle is a necessity.Coming to the point If some thing is so important in our life why do we ignore it?
Why do we take ourself for granted,our body keeps working whole day and night,why don;t we think of giving some pampering!!!
What is pampering??Don’t we pamper our childern,spouse,boss,associates,friends etcc.One may say why do you say that I pamper myself by treating myself with a chocolate,icecream,dine at a star hotel..
Let us think are we pampering,are we making its existence easy?
