Better health ideas are great and most everyone would agree. However, agreeing and achieving are two very different mentalities. Knowing better health is the best but never changing anything to start in that direction is not a good way to get healthy results.
Usually, for most people all that is required is a few habit adjustments in the right areas, lead to a lifetime of excellent health as well as habits. Getting the good habits into your daily routine should be your goal.
Our daily routines have a natural feel to them and we generally pay little attention to them and is a very good reason to make good habits and choices part of the routine. Refreshing walks daily can easily be part of that routine if you choose to do so.
Just a twenty minute walk every day is not marathon training, nor will you see significant weight loss, but what you will notice is how much better you are beginning to feel.
What better way to get rid of frustrations than with the one two knockout punch of exercise in a public park surrounding. A nice relaxing stroll through the park is even more memorable with teens that honestly enjoy this time with parents. This is a great way and time to bond and practice what you preach; which by the way they do listen and watch more than you think. This can also be a chatty encouraged zone that is open to any topic.
Of course if you are going to talk about health you will need to discuss the food that you are eating. Fast food is just not something that you want to do anymore. That doesn’t mean you can’t have some awesome tasty junk food on a Sunday cheat day, but the rest of the time it does mean being more choosy. If you love pizza then try some veggie versions instead of all the greasy high fat meats. If you need a quick sandwich then go for a salad sandwich instead of a burger.
You also need to think about getting the proper amount of rest to work toward better health. When people get stressed or very busy it seems that rest and sleep time gets neglected. Your body does need some time to rest and renew. That is true of your brain also.
If you are forever suffering from a constant stream of thought that includes all that you need to do, should be doing, and am getting behind in doing, it will wear you out and you don’t even need to leave your desk. A short restful catnap, where you turn everything off will help to give your brain a rest from constant worry.
Remember when it comes to better health, it’s about making healthy choices and adopting good habits.
