How Daily Habits Can Have Big Health Payoffs
We all struggle when it comes to using will-power to make changes in our lives. We might manage if for a day or two, but it’s not long before we simply give up. Do you feel the same?
Perhaps you stick to your diet for a week or two, but then you just can’t resist that candy bar or cake. We all have all sort of current habits like:
- Your morning routine
- What you do during your lunch hour
- What time you go to bed… and so on.
So much of what we do on a day to day basis is habitual. And you notice that these habits don’t really take a lot of thought or energy: taking a shower in the morning isn’t a big struggle, for instance, and going to bed at 11p.m. might be so natural you never think twice about it. So, whenever you’re looking to change something in your life, it’s worth finding habits which you can establish – with a little bit of up-front effort – to take you towards your goals.
Changing habits and coping with stress in your life
You will never eliminate stress from your life, it’s just not realistic. How you learn to cope with it, reduce it and master the balancing of it can mean the difference in sustained excellence. High stress can and will affect your weight, organ health, and your ability to be at your best professionally.
Changing habits and Self Health excellence
One of the biggest factors that determine how well you age is not your genes but how well you live. Not convinced? A study published in 2009 in the British Medical Journal of 20,000 British folks show that you can cut your risk of having a stroke in half by doing the following four (4) things:
1. Being active for 30 minutes a day
2. Eating five (5) daily servings of fruit and vegetables, and
3. Avoiding Cigarettes and
4. Excess Alcohol.
Sustained excellence of any kind requires significance and consistent energy. The way you fuel your body will ultimately determine a lot going on in your mind – focus, concentration, energy, are all affected. This Harvard study adds even more evidence to support some of the foods that drive peak performance.
For example, potatoes and in particular the small red potatoes are a quality source of complex carbohydrates needed to balance nutrition. It’s normally all the other ‘stuff’ that is put on them that gives them a bad rap.
It is every human being’s right to defile themselves as they see fit… so ultimately, no one is going is force you to eat healthy. If, however you want to feel better, control that middle tire you have been working on and perhaps even enjoy life a little longer it is worth the effort.
What does this have to do with business?
When you feel better, you might be able to work better, you’ll probably be able to do more, that may bring some professional progress…
- Besides, if you feel good, you look good and fabulous each and every day!
- Take responsibility of the image you wish to project and achieve life’s success.
