Okay!!! Time to prioritize your health and happiness.
I’ve said before we live in a busy world with pressures from all areas of our life wanting some of our time. It is easy to forget about our health and we don’t consider it until we fall ill or we feel we just aren’t coping.
It is time to put yourself first and prioritize your health and
happiness by having:
- Regular health checks
- Making healthier choices
- Taking Time out for yourself
Regular health checks
When was your last health checkup? I know, unless you are at death’s door your struggle on when you aren’t feeling 100%. You may also say ‘I’m young and fit so I don’t need to think about my health at the moment’.
You look after your family’s health and wellbeing so why not your own?Click To Tweet
You need to make time for regular health checks – not just for your own wellbeing but also to be able to care for your family as well.
Regular checkups with your doctor, dentist and even your massage therapist keeps you in optimum physical and mental health.
You may be like me and have a family history of diseases such as cancer, heart disease or diabetes. If this is the case it is even more important to schedule in those tests on a regular basis.
Making healthier choices
Let’s look at your food choices and exercise. Keeping healthy means fuelling your body with the right foods and exercising regularly. I’m not saying ‘diet to lose weight’ I’m saying trying to eat a healthy well balanced diet that will provide the vitamins and nutrients your body needs.
Eating foods that are not processed and cutting back on sugar will help your immune system as well as giving you the energy to cope with the stresses of life.
Exercising 30 minutes each day will keep your body in tip top condition and also keep it strong which is important as we get older.
Take time out
Making the time to relax and just ‘be’ is so important for our mental health and happiness. We need time to do things that make us happy and help us to clear our minds for some time each day. Sometimes we feel we need to be busy all the time and fill our social calendars to within a second.
Sure, Socialising and building relationships with family and friends is an important part of being healthy and happy BUT HAVING TIME OUT ON YOUR OWN is just as important to recharge and rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit.
