It All Adds Up
I recently went to the doctor’s for my annual check-up and I got a clean bill of health! While checking out I noticed a sign with four simple things anyone can do to stay healthy at any age. It occured to me that I do all of those things so I thought I’d share them with you here in this live video.
1 – Move
Even moderate exercise on a consistent basis can have a big impact on your health. Look for fun things to do on the weekend that keep you moving and active. I like bike riding, skiing, running, and disc golf!
2 – Get enough sleep
Have a solid bed time to help ensure you get enough rest for your body to repair and refresh. Most sleep professionals say 7-8 hours is good for adults .
3- Eat real food
Avoid eating processed foods and foods with ingredients you can’t pronounce. Generally, these don’t contain the nutrients your body needs for optimal health.
4 – uh….oh no I forgot # 4!
Ok so you’ll notice I forgot # 4 (thank goodness my doc wasn’t testing my memory 😉 Anyway, the fourth item on the list is to drink plenty of water. Water is essential for life and yet many people don’t drink enough through out the day, no soda and coffee don’t count. I aim to consume half my body weight in ounces of water each day and it truly has an impact. It gives me energy, reduces my appetite and keeps me hydrated (all good things).
Are there other things you do that help you maintain great health? What should we add to this list? Leave a comment below I love hearing from you.
