Take Control Of Your Health And Wellness
It is inevitable that as we age, our metabolism slows, our waistlines expand and our muscles slowly begin to waste away from lack of use. You may be thinking that this will not happen to you for many years to come, unfortunately, your lifestyle may be contributing to this rapid deterioration in your health as early as your late teens!
Regardless of your age, you ride rather than walk, you spend countless hours sitting in front
of a television or computer screen and the only exercise you get is carrying grocery
bags filled with processed junk food or walking to the front door for your pizza.
Is it too late to take control of your health and wellness? No, it is not too late to make positive lifestyle changes, break bad habits, slow the aging process and maintain a healthy body and bodyweight. Here are the first four areas of health and wellness that you should focus on:
Diet and Nutrition – A healthy diet can be as simple as eliminating calorie dense foods (fats and sugars) and replacing them with nutrient dense foods (lean proteins and complex carbohydrates). Weight loss and the reduction of stored body fat requires creating a calorie deficit, a negative calorie balance at the end of each day. Start by eliminating sodas and colas and replacing these liquid calorie bombs with fresh, clean water can save hundreds of empty calories every day. Choose natural foods over those that are processed and packaged with added salt and sugar.
Exercise – A second way to promote your daily calorie deficit (burning more calories than you eat) is by increasing your activity level. Moderate exercise gets your muscles and joints moving, your heart pumping, increases the healthy levels of oxygen in your bloodstream and boosts your metabolism to burn more calories. Start with 30 minutes of regular physical activity (3 times weekly) to improve your muscle strength, improve agility and coordination and endurance and boost your energy levels.
Rest – Many people underestimate the importance of adequate, restful sleep. Your body uses that “downtime” to repair, rebuild and recover. Adults need about 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep each night, teens need 8 to 10 hours and children 10 to 12. A lack of sleep can adversely affect your desire and ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle while also increasing your risk of depression.
Positive Attitude – A positive mindset and optimism can help improve much more than your outlook on life. Positive thinking and optimism are vital to effective stress management which in turn reduces the production and release of hormones that promote weight gain and inflammation. Healthy and happy people know what they want, and develop a plan to get it. Maintaining a positive attitude can change your life for the better and help you take control of your health and wellness.
