At some point in our life, nearly all of us start to worry about our health. Hence this post, useful as a quick checklist to see how healthy you are living so instead of a long intro let’s get started right away.
1: Start With a Health Check
Sometimes when the complaints add up the best thing to do is to visit the hospital for a full health check-up, that way they can tell you what you have to work on and if there is anything to worry about at all because stress is unhealthy which brings us to our next point.
2: Are You Stressing Out
Maybe you don’t realize it but stress has an immense bad effect on your health. Perhaps you are stressing about your health? In that case see point one, do a health check-up. Are you stressing about other things? Then realize that you shouldn’t stress out about things that haven’t happened yet so simply stop worrying, a great way to help you with that is meditation.
3: Meditation Isn’t That Odd
It aren’t just hippies that are meditating after smoking a joint, everyone can and should meditate these days as it relieves you from your daily stress. The only important thing is to actually stick with it, it’s easy to get started but it’s just as easy to forget about it a few days or weeks later, try to make it a part of your daily routine and you will feel a lot better.
4: Focus on Your Work
With that I don’t mean you have to work harder but analyze the aspects of your work that might have a bad effect on your health, this could be stress which we already discussed, simply take regular breaks and do a quick 5-minute meditation session during your break. If you’re shy you can even do it during your toilet break. If you work in an office you might want to check if you’re sitting right, I just found a complete checklist on working behind a desk at Jonathon Spire.
5: Go to The Gym
Yes, you probably need to exercise more if you’re feeling weak, you can do that by either going to the sports school or you can buy attributes and building your own home gym. It isn’t all that costly when you compare it to the yearly subscription fees of the gym near you. You can also start jogging of course, or swimming or whatever you like best but start moving.
6: Eat More Healthy Food
A rather obvious one, of course, you are what you eat but most people simply order some food delivery or snack along the way. Start visiting the grocery store a little more often and look what’s in your basket and be honest with yourself and throw out all the healthy food and make a new round through the store, the more colorful it gets the more healthy it is.
7: Cut Down on Alcohol & Drugs
Maybe you are on a certain medication for your stress, try to tone this down and meditate instead, there are plenty of natural ways to deal with anxiety and such. Alcohol is definitely not the solution either, sure it works great for a short while but the next day you’re left with a hangover and you are preparing yourself to become an alcoholic if that’s the remedy to your problems.
