    I don't see hobbies and other interests. While the problem-solving may be creative, it may not provide enough freedom for self-expression. Additionally, I don't see anything of a spiritual nature.

    I think that these are two components that serve to improve the quality of ones life. Aside from this the food, sleep, exercise, and relationship categories look healthful to me.

    This is healthy to me as long as you aren't smoking or drinking. I would take some vitamins.. protein as well, because without the meat and fish, you are forfeiting a lot of good things.. and also try taking Iron or you might become anemic..

    Your lifestyle looks perfect to me, so I would say: Keep up the good work.

    As for the work, maybe just try to take it easier, avoid too much stress (if you have any).

    It's healthly, but I would have annual checkups and wouldn't smoke or drive without a seat belt on.

    A healthy exercise program addresses all five aspects of physical fitness: aerobic endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, and body fat composition.

    Suggested workout to accomplish this.

    Five to seven days per week:

    >Yoga, 20 min, 8 to 10 postures that work all major muscle groups

    >Brisk walk, 30 min, walk two miles

    Every other day, two to four days per week:

    >Weight training, 20 min, one set of 8 to 12 repetitions of 8 to 10 exercises that work all major muscle groups

    Exercise Recommendations for People Aged 18 to 64

    Do both aerobic activities and strengthening activities.

    Aerobic Activities

    • Do at least 10 minutes at a time.

    • You can combine moderate and vigorous activities.

    • Slowly build up the amount of time you do physical activities. The more time you spend, the more health benefits you gain. Aim for exercising twice as long as the minimum times below.

    • If you choose activities at a moderate level, do at least 2 hours and 30 minutes a week.

    • If you choose vigorous activities, do at least 1 hour and 15 minutes a week.

    Muscle Strengthening Activities

    Do these at least 2 days a week.

    • Include all the major muscle groups such as legs, hips, back, chest, stomach, shoulders, and arms.

    • Exercises for each muscle group should be repeated 8 to 12 times per session.

    I heard 9 hours of sleep is a little much but that is for you to know. Otherwise there is not much to improve
