My wellness – my responsibility

My wellness – my responsibility

We consume too much fast food and sugar, are under too much stress, don’t get enough sleep or exercise and are disconnected from others. This can adversely affect our health and wellbeing. The good news is that we can take charge and change our harmful habits.

Here are some things we can do to take charge of our own wellness:

  • Stress management – it can be as simple as taking five minutes out of every hour to sit quietly and focusing on your breathing.
  • Enough sleep – this means uninterrupted sleep in a peaceful environment for at least seven hours a night.
  • Cook your own food – that is the only way to know exactly what you put in your mouth.
  • Exercise − if you fail to move your body regularly, your body will fail to thrive; move daily, no excuses.
  • Community involvement – research has shown that involvement in the community is crucial for happiness and contributes to living longer.
  • Become a veggie expert − make vegetables the centre of your meal.
  • Ignore the sugar – you will be less susceptible to inflammation and being overweight.
  • Live a life of gratitude − gratitude and positivity encourage greater health and longevity.
