If You Don’t Have Your Health, What Do You Have?
As I was out and about yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice everyones impatience around the grocery stores, retail shops, restaurants and even on social media. I just thought, if everyone could just eat better and make a little more time for themselves to get their heart rate up, our world may just be a lot happier.
I mean it.
I don’t say this because I own a gym. I say this because there is truly a physiological response when we eat well and move our bodies like it hasn’t moved in a while and I want people to feel better in general. Here’s a simple how to:
1. To keep it simple, eat better (fruits, vegetables, good carbs and good proteins) and the amount your suppose to be eating (not like a rabbit), can help to improve mental acuteness, boost your energy levels, and increase your resistance to illness. Eating well can also be the key to a positive outlook and staying emotionally balanced.
Healthy eating is not a diet. It is a way of living that does not require you to starve yourself nor to eat anything that you don’t want to.
2. Spending just 10 minutes makes a difference emotionally and physically. When you exercise and tap into your zone 1 heart rate, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain and discomfort. Endorphins trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine.
And just like the quote about says, It’s never too early or too late to work towards being a healthier you. So, before the holidays and baking and crazy carbs hit you, start today. And work toward it everyday. Nobody expects perfection. Nobody expects you to diet and have low energy. A simple approval of, just get better. Daily improvements are improvements. Because if you don’t have your health, what do you have?
Our health allows us to be alive 😉 Let’s start living!
