They say that too much of a good thing isn’t good after all. This is true of most everything in life. People aren’t perfect, and you will make mistakes, but the best advice you can follow may be to practice moderation in all things.
Food is wonderful, and necessary to live. However, too much food will make you overweight and unhealthy. Likewise, too little food will leave you malnourished and overly thin.
Starving yourself, or depriving yourself of the foods you love the most may result in going on a harmful eating binge. So allow yourself a small slice of cake, and just don’t let it tempt you into eating the whole thing. Eat a handful of chips, if that’s your guilty pleasure, but save the rest of the bag for a friend, or at least for another day.
Sleep is another wonderful thing that must be used in moderation. Either too much or too little could be harmful to your health, so you must make sure you get the rest you need without going overboard.
You can apply this advice to almost any aspect of life. Balance your levels of work and fun, of exercise and rest, of work and family, of fun and seriousness, and you will do well.
