Why it's Time to Put Your Health First

Your well being should be a priority in your life, yet so many of us place our health on the back burner, leaving it unattended until it boils over on us.

Health seems to be something that's largely taken for granted. We feel invincible until it fails us. This is clearly the wrong attitude. If you take preventative action, you'll not only feel better, but your body will thank you by adding years onto your life!
 
Improve your Health for the Right Reasons
 
Nowadays many Americans are overweight. As a result, more people than ever are trying to slim down. The problem is a lot of us aren't trying to lose weight for the right reasons. If you need to lose weight, be sure to do it for yourself, not for anybody else.
 
Losing weight goes far beyond the superficial. Don't lose weight only in order to look good, but for your overall health and wellness.
 
When you try to improve yourself for other people, you can lose sight of your motivation if your relationship changes. The motivation needs to be within you, not someone else. The deeper your commitment to your health, the more difficult it is to cheat on a diet or forego exercise.
 
It's also important to realize that you must love yourself first before anyone else will. People are drawn to others who have self-confidence and self-respect. When you care about your well being, not only will you take better care of yourself, but others will be more likely to do the same.
 
Here are some ways you can put yourself first and take better care of your health:
 
1.    See your doctor. If you haven't been to see a doctor in a while or are in need of an annual checkup, start by making an appointment to get your health evaluated. This will give you a good foundation for what improvements you need to make.
 
2.    Find an exercise routine you can incorporate regularly into your lifestyle. It can be as easy as going for a walk. Just put on your shoes and get outdoors. The fresh air and the walk will do wonders for your health.
 
3.    Make changes in your diet. Try reducing red meat, refined sugars and alcohol for starters. Increase your fresh fruit and vegetable intake. Be sure to start off each day with a healthy breakfast and don't skip meals. Drink plenty of water throughout the day as well.
  • When you eat poorly, you're doing a huge disservice to your body. You are what you eat, after all. If you eat unhealthy foods, you'll likely end up unhealthy with chronic health issues like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes, just to name a few.
  • The healthier foods you eat, the better you'll feel and the stronger you'll become. Whether you believe it or not, it's the truth!
4.    Find time to relax. It's imperative to take care of your mental health, also, by incorporating relaxation techniques into your lifestyle. Regular relaxation helps reduce stress and anxiety and recharges you so you can bring more energy and passion to all areas of your life.
  • Consider taking up yoga or meditation.
  • Find time to pursue hobbies you enjoy to help bring you contentment and happiness.
If you take good care of yourself, you'll be able to enjoy your life to the fullest. Use these tips every day to improve your health and put yourself first. Following a good wellness plan will help keep you fit and boost your energy!

The first physical change that Kaizen Challenge has made to me is starting my day off the same way – with reading and silence. This has given me the clarity of mind, each day, to see what issues are troubling me and what I need to do to sort out those issues. I find I am now able to look at the “bigger picture” each day Read more...

We started off badly with a poor telephone system that could not function properly over the internet followed by an electricity crisis, but after investing in ourselves we enjoyed the Kaizen Challenge very much.

Do I feel like one in a million? A resounding yes! Do I regard myself as superior to my contemporaries? No! I only think that I may be able to use my talents more productively (sometimes).   I am a hard of hearing, hands-on father of 2 Angels (2 and 4 years). I can only meaningfully communicate in a person to person basis. In group situations I am like a Read more...
