The Joy Of Living

Joy- of- LivingIn today’s fast paced society with all the pressure and stress it is more import now than ever before to take care of your body. I constantly hear people say that they don’t get enough rest; they don’t have time exercise, they don’t have time to meditate, they don’t have time to prepare healthy meals, so they end up eating fast food. This constant state of rushing around that everybody’s in and the stress it causes is affecting people’s health.

People today look at good health as an absence of illness, so if they’re not chronically in pain, or not coughing, or they don’t have the flu, they think they are pretty healthy even though they’re eating junk food and putting themselves under constant stress.

If you’re not getting enough sleep, rushing around and drinking too much caffeine, and engaging in all sorts of negative, harmful habits such as drinking too much, gaining excess weight, it has a negative effect on your body.

People are constantly complaining about having chronic pain, chronic fatigue, chronic illness and all sorts of physical complaints. We are visiting doctors, chiropractors and different health practitioners at an alarming rate. Most people just aren’t taking the time to take care of themselves physically. I think if people would just slow down and take the time to reflect on how lucky we are to have this wonderful body that was given to us at birth to carry our soul while we’re here on earth most people would learn to love their body and take better care of it.

Most people think they have to make dramatic lifestyle changes in order to improve their health and experience the joy of living but this is not true there are a lot of small changes you can make that can make a big difference in your health.

There is a fine line between someone who’s really stressed out and someone who is relatively content. It’s just changing a few habits, the way you look at things such as, shifting your attitude around a little bit makes a major difference in your health. For example, making the decision that you’re going to exercise twenty minutes a day three days a week and then actually doing it can improve your health.

Here are some other small changes you can make to improve your overall health; get some fun exercise like skiing, cycling or swimming. Some other important things you can do to improve your health are getting six to eight house of restful sleep each night, spending quality time with your family and friends, doing volunteer and community service, yoga, and even getting a new pet. If you’re in business hold staff meetings outside, take a walk during lunch.

Starting your day in a positive way can have a profound positive effect on your health. If you don’t have time in the morning to exercise then do some stretching for five to ten minutes. Stand in front of the mirror and say some positive affirmations, such as “I’m happy to be alive; I have abundant energy; I am health; I am manifesting abundance in all aspects of my life.”

Eating healthier foods such as, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables can make a big difference in your short and long term health. Eat lean meats, fish, poultry and vegetable proteins. Tofu, edamame, flaxseeds, and flaxseed oil all have important positive health benefits. Take high quality vitamin and mineral supplements.

Here’s an important but often overlooked part of eating; take your time, relax and enjoy your food. So many people are such a rush they eat their food as fast as they can to get where they have to go next. When you do this you can’t digest your food properly and your body doesn’t absorb the nutrients.

If you just make some subtle changes in your lifestyle, whether it’s making time to exercise, eating healthier or taking time to relax more you’ll find that soon these things will become a habit and you’ll easily incorporate them into your daily life creating better health for yourself now and into the future.
