It’s no secret that an Apple a day helps to keep the doctor away. As well as, drinking water, excercising, sleeping and improving your eating habits are the best things you can do for your body. Thinking healty with positive connotations is also good for the bodies mindset and spirit. See yourself independent, healthy, happy and loved.
Next, look at life through a magnifying glass if you are over 50 you are noticing friends, family, school mates and work associates are dropping dead all around you. So what positive life style changes can you make to avoid being the next corpse. For example, start taking a serious look at your diet. We are into the second month of 2016 are you one of the New Years resolution jump starters that have already fallen out the gym, off the diet and are pushing your resolutions out to 2017. Remember, it is never too late to get back into the momentum of 2016. Don’t fall back into the normal trap of racing around and caring for everyone but yourself. Missing meals, missing the gym and most of all missing sleep.
Although, New Year eave has passed; don’t get disappointed and feel over whelmed with failure and disappointment. Instead of trying to compete in a marthon by March 15, 2016 just take small baby steps. Get on a proper healthy eating program. Even Orprah is ready for a rehaul and is working on her health and eating habits. Promise no more diets just work on developing a few small healthy eating habits which include more fresh fruits and vegetables, lower your salt intake, clean low fat fresh meats and drink water remember humans are made up of 60% water. How many people do you see pouring salt on their food before even tasting it. Surely, that is not you.
Finally, start paying attention to your body which includes headaches, swollen feet and mood swings. Don’t wait until your body is fighting off cancer or diabetes to get to the doctor. Make your appointment today for a physical which includes blood work. No more diets and no more expensive gym equiptment that you pile clothes on. A 96 year old female in great shape gave me this advice. She gets eight to ten hours of sleep each night. Next, she recommends keeping a bottle of water near your bed and start drinking it as soon as your feet hit the floor. Furthermore, exercise is key. Try to do 10 jumping jacks when you rise and before you go to bed; start there and add a few more exercises just ten at a time. Stop eating as soon as you feel full and let it digest.
Remember, start paying attention to your health today because tomorrow is just not promised.
