- Understand that everything is connected. You may believe compartmentalization keeps things in neat packages, but it does not – your mental, emotional, social, spiritual, financial, and physical health are all interconnected, and interlinks with your environment and lifestyle choices
- Start with eliminating stress. A reasonable amount of stress is good for you, as it motivates you to do what needs to be done, but persistent, long-term stress can wreak havoc with your life and health. Either remove yourself from the situation or make serious efforts to change the situation.
- Life in the moment. Longing for the good old days of yore or thinking if only I had ‘xyz’ is a surefire way of making yourself miserable and losing out on life. Enjoy this moment, right now. You can control how you react to what is happening right now.
- Enjoy what you do have. Focus on the positives and stop trying to compete with the Joneses. Take inventory of what you do have and build on the strengths, every day, whilst trying to eliminate the weaknesses.
- Take care of your long-term physical health. This means getting vaccinated as required, avoiding polluted areas, doing your required check-ups when necessary and being cognizant of any genetic-based risks in health and what steps you need to take to protect yourself. Men often avoiding medical-checkups. This is upsetting in most of the cases, and especially when it comes to sexual disorders. Being healthy doesn’t mean the lack of any infirmity or problem so keep in mind this and do you best.
- Learn how to live a healthy live naturally. Yo-yo dieting and following every latest fad on the internet is one of the worst things you can possibly do. Read up on healthy living at verified scientific sites, for example Mayo clinic, Harvard, AHA, etc.
- Get moving. It does not really matter how, do whatever you enjoy and that does not cause pain or discomfort, whether it is running up and down stairs, walking in a park, hiking, cycling, playing a competitive sport. Moving at least once an hour during the day brings untold health benefits. Exercise increases energy and produces feel good hormones.
- Feast every day. Not just on special occasions, as a treat, or as a guilty pleasure. Prepare healthy balanced meals as a feast to look forward to and enjoy every sensuous bite.
- Hydrate. Drinking enough water or eating fruits and food with high water content such as orange slices helps keep you hydrated throughout the day, minimizes the load on the heart, assists muscle and joint movement, removes waste and maintains your temperature.
- Sleep. Getting enough quality sleep is important for healing damaged cells, boosting your immune system, stabilizing weight hormones, recharging the cardiovascular system. It helps with learning through a process called memory consolidation. Sleep deprivation leads to irritability, moodiness and a greater risk for accidents.
- Take breaks. Self-care includes taking regular breaks to revitalize. Whether it is small movement breaks, or longer breaks, the benefits include increased productivity and creativity, memory consolidation and improved learning, restore motivation and decrease decision fatigue.
- Prioritize your close relationships. In order to thrive you must give your full attention to your close relationships. This means investing in what is most important in the long term, and it bring feelings of self-worth, satisfaction and warmth. Be all there. Enjoy and have fun.
- Socialize. Quit being so serious and have some fun with your social groups. Research have shown the top activity that increased longevity was regular social contact (more so than diet and exercise).
- Believe in something. Spirituality and religion can be hot topics but research has shown it beneficial to longevity. However, this may mean something as simple as believe in kindness or paying-it-forward. Finding meaning in any form can benefit your health and others.
- Practice gratitude. Showing gratitude helps you focus on the positive, and leads to increased levels of well-being, self-control, optimism and happiness. It helps strengthen interpersonal relationships.
Now, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee, or retreat for your meditation session. Do what feels good and live life to the fullest.copyright protection8ＰＥＮＡＮＡX3O5aUcCJ0ns22.214.171.124da2
