Stay Healthy!

There is a lot of negative energy in our society right now.  If you are feeling the burdens, you are not alone! But never forget, its important for you to stay healthy.  If you bring health into your lifestyle, I promise you things will look and feel better.  Living a healthy lifestyle can help prevent chronic diseases and long-term illnesses. Feeling good about yourself and taking care of your health are important for your self-esteem and self-image. Maintain a healthy lifestyle by doing what is right for your body.

Power of Attitude– A positive attitude can boost your energy, heighten your inner strength, inspire others, and garner the fortitude to meet difficult challenges. Surround yourself with positive energy! In order to have a sound mental and emotional state, you must surround yourself with positive energy. Yes, not all problems can be avoided. But it helps to face such obstacles with an optimist outlook. Surround yourself with encouraging friends and people that will provide you with constructive criticism every once in a while, to help you improve.  Dwell on the positive! Try to always look at the brighter side of life. Even if you find yourself in the worst situation, there is always an upside to it—something good and positive.

Exercise & Physical Activity– Move your body!  Exercise releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain. Endorphins also trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine.  Who doesn’t want to feel good?  And all it takes is physical activity!  Find a way to sweat today, you can take the stairs instead of the elevator, park further away from the store, take your kids outside to kick the ball around.  You can stick to easy floor exercises, swimming, walking, or simply keep yourself moving by doing some household chores. Do what your body allows you to do.

Nutrition– Good nutrition is often the first line of defense to avoid illness. And it’s not difficult to have a well-rounded diet.  Yes, its just like your momma use to tell you, eat your greens and your vegetables.  Its okay to eat chips or sweets, but remember, everything in moderation.  Don’t only eat bread or pasta, don’t only eat meat.  Make sure you eat a variety of food and make sure you eat the ones that are best for you.  For more tips, on healthy, inexpensive meals, look through you “Good and Cheap” cookbooks.  If you don’t have one, ask your manager for one today. 

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not that difficult, nor does it require a lot of work. And it is important for your physical and mental health.  I promise, if you start thinking more about your body, what you eat, your physical activity, you will notice a change.  The people around you will notice as well.  At a time when so much in society is being questioned, and unknown, do the best you can do and be the best you can be.
