Making health your priority

on October 17, 2014

Your health is something to be valued. It’s not something to be thrown away or ignored, but something you should continually work at and focus on. It’s easy to get preoccupied with other things and then have your health suffer because of it. But we need to take care of our bodies and minds with practicing good healthy techniques.

What can you do to make your health a priority? Try some of these healthy habits.

  • Make a commitment to schedule regular doctor and dentist visits
  • Squeeze in 30 minutes of exercise daily (how about a walk at lunchtime?). Creating a daily ritual will help with your motivation to exercise.
  • Re-prioritize your other commitments to better prioritize your health.
  • Make an effort to purchase healthier food alternatives. Try finding a local nutrition class on reading nutritional labels and shop consciously!
  • Get a good night sleep
  • To help with motivation, write down a specific health goal and go for it! Writing down what you need to do will help motivate yourself.
  • Make fitness fun. Change up your exercise routines, exercise with friends (a good support buddy!), try something new, or just dance to your favorite music.
  • Create personal time for yourself to focus on just yourself.
  • Drink plenty of water.
