The Benefits of Health Living

Real healthy living starts with a commitment to making healthy decisions today in preparation for well-being tomorrow. It’s a lifestyle choice that requires dedication to the ideals and application of whole life health principles for body, mind and spirit.

There are many different circumstances that can cause a person at some point in their life, to reconsider their approach to wellness. When a person is faced with a chronic health condition, or a close relative is diagnosed with what could have been a preventable disease, the response is typically to initiate a healthier lifestyle. For instance, in response to a diagnosis of diabetes from a routine check-up, many people immediately implement diet changes and commit to consuming better quality foods. Similarly, when in a heart disease diagnosis, patients typically scramble to seek information on how to rid oneself of an illness that likely could have been prevented at a much earlier stage.

Why do we wait? The benefits of living a healthy lifestyle for disease prevention are well documented. It is never too late to start making better decisions with regard to your health. With our busy and stressful lives, it’s easy to neglect our health. Fortunately, it’s the decisions we make today, not the mistakes of your past, which have the greatest impact on our future.

Whether you suffer from multiple chronic conditions or are in excellent health, developing a long-term wellness plan with your doctor is one of the best investments that you can make.

Physical Activity

How active are you on a daily basis? A weekly basis? Although many of dread going to the gym or going out for a run, physical activity is an essential part of maintaining your health. If physical fitness hasn’t been high on your priority list, now is the time to start. Remember, “A Journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”. Set achievable and small daily goal, and you’ll be amazed at what you achieve over a short period of time. By committing to a brisk walk for 20 or 30 minutes every day, you could be running in a month, and completing a marathon six months down the line.

You can start by just a short walk every day. No gym required, and you can walk all year round, depending on your age. It’s also a wonderful way to oxygenate the brain and ease stress.

We look forward to partnering with you to develop these habits and outline a plan for a renewed healthy lifestyle.
