With that darn virus hanging on as the flu and cold season approach, now is perfect timing to evaluate what and how we improve our personal defense to maintain our wellness in the months ahead. Please read on
Yes, constantly we are told to wear masks, wash hands often, get a flu shot, be aware of social distancing, and etc as part of our routines today. However, what are we hearing regarding our own personal wellness in regard to our lifestyles?
So often it is easier to be compliant on these listed recommendations for our health as well as guarding the health of others than it is to check our own attitudes to our eating, sleeping, exercise, stress controls, and balance, right?
THE WAY WE EAT TODAY
The problem or challenge to improve our personal wellness is often simply the way we eat..especially as we age! Taking this personal responsibility for our own wellness is a hard concept to accept, even for those super exceptionally brilliant people.
But in all fairness, I believe that today’s current lifestyles does indeed sabotage our personal wellness by being:
Too tired or too busy to shop or cook
Too busy to even think about what one will eat daily
Where to start or how to even begin eating healthy
A lifetime of poor eating habits
Are we just too busy today to take care of our own healthy eating and lifestyle habits? Sadly the answer to this question for most is a resounding yes.
Are you unlikely to have a plan for what you will eat each day? Do you skip meals, especially breakfast? Do you eat in your car, at your desk, engaging in mindless eating?
Well, you are not alone because I totally get it!
WHO IS ADVISING YOU ON YOUR EATING HABITS?
Unfortunately, I believe that the majority of us have to figure this out on our own. I can confidently say this due to the fact that doctors very rarely delve into their patients’ eating habits. If your doctor does, then this is awesome for your personal wellness.
In my Facebook group, I have posted many videos on the status of our wellness today. I have addressed in my recent video posts why our doctors have so little nutritional training in medical school along with their immense pressure with patient overload. This is the system’s issues, not our doctors who try their ultimate best to maintain our wellness.
WELLNESS BY DESIGN SERIES
DOES ALL OF THIS REALLY MATTER?
Of course the answer is a resounding yes if we are going to not only survive this flu and cold season layered with the lingering virus, but we can certainly equip ourselves to thrive.
Next post will give time tested and researched solutions to improving our personal wellness, regardless of our ages. But in the meantime, pay attention to yourself. Being healthy and aging healthy is a choice that can only be chosen by each individual.
Lastly, remember my late dad’s wise words, “it makes no difference if someone is a millionaire, without their health, it is all meaningless.
Living and Loving Life Together,
