‘Steps to your Greater Health’ no matter what part of the world you are from, or what background. I’ve put together some simple steps that will help guide you to that greater health. This is what we all want at livegreaterhealth.com.
Simple Steps to Fitness
Step 1 : Daily physical exercise, will keep our bodies in it’s best shape. You know, it’s pretty much a must. We all know, that getting out and enjoying life, is something we all like to do.
So, I would like to encourage everybody, to just get out, or even inside, if you are not able to go outside. We do encourage you to make yourself a strategy, of daily exercise routines and follow them.
Join a gym, or a group, in daily exercise, maybe get out and ride bicycles, roller blade, walk, run, jump rope, or any activity that will work your muscles and get our blood pumping and your heart rate up, which in turn, is good for your heart health.
Going outdoors and canoeing, or kayaking would be, good activities for your health, which might even include swimming or any kind of water sports. Some people get into rock climbing and extreme activities, just get out and do it.
I cannot urge you enough to stay active, if you are not able do extreme sports. Get out and walk in your front yard, or where ever you can, this will help your health.
Having strong muscles, is what we want to achieve, so that we can do what needs to be done in life. This will allow us, to be a little more heart healthy, and prolong our lives. Now this is just part of the fitness we are going to have to accomplish.
Why do you want to exercise and stay healthy?Well, there should be many reasons why we would want to. Don’t you like to feel good? Sure you do. Don’t you want to keep sickness away? Sure. All this can be accomplished, by staying fit. It will help you to ward off disease, and other health problems. All around, It’ll let you feel good about yourself.
There is other things that will help, making sure you get the right supplements and vitamins that our system needs to help lead a normal healthy life. I encourage you to talk to your health care provider about what you should or should not put into your diet.
That brings me to another thing “Diet”. Everybody needs to eat a nutritious diet, to get the minerals and enzymes the body needs to be in optimal health. It’s just as important as exercise, and it all goes together to get our best health. Any physical activity is better than no activity.
Simple Steps to Mental Health
Step 2 : What is mental health to us, well it effects our well-being and how we feel, think and act. We do not want to take it for granted.
We need to work on improving our mental health. Some of the ways, would be, how we handle stress, treat other people, or make decisions. Keep a positive attitude and do what we can, to keep, illnesses away.
We need to feel good about ourselves and love ourselves. Our mental health, controls how we think, and behave, it also, determines how, we cope with stress and how we relate to others.
It effects our emotional state and our energetic and positive state of mind. This is just some of the simple steps we will be talking about as more will be added later.
Peace with ourselves – First and foremost, we have to have this, or we will never be content.
Self-confidence – This is what gives us the drive to keep going in the right direction, and not stop.
Purpose and meaning – If we don’t have this we need to get it, because this gives us the want to.
Ability to have fun – We need to have fun with what we do, in order to do it the best we can and enjoy.
To deal with problems – All the above, helps us deal with any problems we encounter on the way.
Meditation – This helps with our mental strength, and our all around well-being.
Exercise – Our physical body and mind all benefits from this, with a daily routine.
Eat right diet – eating the right foods make a big difference also, we do get most of our nutrients from our food.
Get the right supplements vitamins – We can supplement or boost the rest of what we need by taking our vitamins or supplements daily.
Mental Health Diet
We have to eat right and get the right nutrients for our brain to stay healthy just like other parts of our body. Eat at least three meals a day, take our vitamins and cut out most of your sweet drinks and caffeine, but don’t forget to drink plenty of water.
Foods you should eat……
- dairy products
- fruits and vegetables
- wholegrain bread or cereal
Foods to avoid ……
- drinks with immoderate amounts caffeine and sugar
- foods that are fried, high-fat, or high amounts of sugar
meals, especially, make sure not to skip breakfast Skipping meals. is not a good routine, your body depends on the nutrition, that it gets from the food, on a normal basis, especially your brain.
For Mental Wellness we need to…..
- Get the right amount of sleep
- Quit smoking and drinking alcohol
- Staying active
- Communicating with others
Now, I would like to walk you through, some other drills, that will help you work your mind, a little more, like doing more reading. Just grab a book and start, when you’re sitting around. You can work word puzzles, anything that will cause you to think a little harder.
Simple Steps to Spiritual Health
Step 3 : What is “Spiritual Health”? Well it is the peace and calmness we experience in our everyday lives. Which is determined by the time we spend developing it, that gives us it’s values.
Now some people might not consider this to be a step, but let me tell you if you need a little more peace and calmness in your life this may help. Spirituality is something we all have, our spiritual health should be very important to us.
Accessing ourselves is the only way this can happen. Nobody can do it for us, we should put some extra thought into this.
Developing spiritual health starts with a person’s desire to give life purpose and meaning through a higher power that intercedes in their life when they pray.
These people spend time praying often whether daily or weekly so they can build up their spiritual health. They may even use meditation to help with their spiritual well-being to better find a way to elevate their spiritual health.
From my point of view I think spiritual heath is one of the most important for our well-being it gives more peace to go through the trials of life that we go through, and makes it easier for us.
Get out, or go to place where you can be by yourself and just relax. You know taking just a few simple steps could make an enormous difference. I would like you to feel free to leave me a comment on this subject.
There are many ways to keep our health in top form. I know that whatever we put into to it will pay off in the long run. Let’s face it, we need to do things that are going to help our well-being. No one shouldn’t slack on this one. Nothing is more important than our health and well-being.
Just think of the people that are not able to get out and exercise the way they would like to, because of some type of disability. For the people who are able, need to take advantage of it, we never no when something might take that away from us.
