If I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s that taking care of my health is one of the most valuable things I can do to impact the way I feel and the way I look. Health is something that should be prioritized by all; not just physical health, but mental health too. They both go hand in hand, and if one is off kilter, then the other one will likely be off kilter, too.

I want to share with you today the things I’ve learned about taking care of my health, so you can implement some positive changes in your life and feel 10x better. If you’re not sure where to start, or you’re just looking for some suggestions to improve what you’re already doing, read on!

Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Prevention is always going to be better than cure. Feel a headache coming on? Drink lots of water. Don’t wait for it to take you out of action and swallow some painkillers. Better yet, drink lots of water all day long to prevent it from happening in the first place. Eating right and exercising will prevent a lot of problems.

Sleep Is Imperative

Sleep helps to protect our brains, keeps stress under control, keeps our appetite consistent, and so much more. Making sure you’re getting the amount of sleep each night that you need as an individual is a must. Some people perform best off 7 hours, some people need 9. It can depend on your age, activity levels, and other factors. Experiment to see what works best for you.

Reducing Stress Levels Is Tough But Worth It

Try to pay attention to how you’re feeling during the day. What makes you stressed out? How can you stop this from happening? Perhaps you need to ask for some time off work, or to reduce your workload. Don’t let things get so bad that they lead to Physical/emotional burnout!

Damaged Hearing Is No Fun

Something many people neglect is their hearing. We’ve all experienced tinnitus at some stage, but if you’re experiencing it fairly often ,it could be a sign that you’re damaging your hearing. Take precautions now to prevent damage. Visit an audiologist if you want advice and equipment to help you protect your hearing properly.

Quick Tips To Take Better Care Of Your Health:

  • Eat a balanced diet with protein, carbs, and fats.
  • Eat lots of vegetables.
  • Track your food using an app if you don’t know how to start.
  • Learn to read nutritional labels.
  • Get active as often as you can, even if you’re just walking. Aim for 8,000-10,000 steps per day.
  • A positive mind = a positive life. Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.
  • Identify what triggers stress for you and eliminate those triggers or learn to handle them/spot them early on.
  • Go to bed at a consistent time each night and get up at the same time each morning – your circadian rhythms will thank you.
  • Invest in clothing protection that will keep you safe and healthy, e.g. a bike helmet, ear protection, knee pads, wrist straps, etc. research depending on what you’re doing.
