How many of you would like to be healthier, thinner, in better shape, and have more energy? Diet and exercise are not enough. You have to look at your life as a whole. What’s happening to you mentally and emotionally is affecting you physically, and vice versa.
If your past efforts to get healthy haven’t produced the results you want, here are the four main areas of your life you need to address in order to see real results.
If you really want to get healthy, you have to look at all areas of your life. If you work out and eat right, but have unmanageable stress in your life, you’re not going to be healthy. If you cut calories, but don’t address your body’s specific nutritional needs, you’re not going to be healthy. If you’re not addressing hormone imbalances and sleep issues, you’re not going to be healthy.
Here are the four cornerstones to good health:
- Proper Nutrition
- Individualized Exercise
- Stress Management
- Adequate Sleep
You have to address all of these factors in your health plan for optimal
Make better choices
Being healthy is a choice. It’s time to decide if your life is going to control you, or if you’re going to control your life. Even though you don’t always have enough time, energy, or good options - you choose to succeed anyway. If you don't have your health, what do you have? When we don't feel well, you will not have the energy, mental focus and self-esteem that you need to envision and create a life of purpose.
How many of you are suffering from stress, not enough sleep, not eating right, fatigue and mood swings? How many have been so busy nurturing others you haven’t been nurturing yourselves?
You have to make the decision here and now to start taking care of yourself. The only person who determines your value is you. And you are worth it!
Make the changes stick
The key to success is to know what changes you need to make, and even more importantly, how to make those changes stick. Will power is not enough. You have to know where you are now, where you want to go, and how to get there without getting derailed by every day challenges.
