4 Tips To Transform Your Health
Here at SOF we specialize in teaching our clients realistic and achievable methods of maintaining what we call a “Health-ish” lifestyle! I see so many people struggling with health issues and the sad reality is most of it is self-inflicted. Our health habits make all the difference as far as how we look and feel. In my professional opinion when you learn realistic and doable health habits it’s easier to stick with it for the long haul. If you can’t sustain whatever fitness, nutrition and health plan you’re on then it is essentially pointless.
If you’re looking to improve your health, then I suggest starting with addressing chronic inflammation because it will make the biggest difference in how you look and feel. There are a number of culprits that cause inflammation. Not getting enough quality sleep can cause serious inflammation issues. Not getting enough exercise also adds to the problem. In addition, chronic stress at high levels contributes to inflammation. Your diet also affects inflammation. Many of the foods included in the SAD (Standard American Diet) Diet cause inflammation. Additionally, having too much body fat causes chronic inflammation. Now that I’ve discussed the causes, let’s talk about solutions!
If you want to take control of your health, you can start by doing these 4 things:
1. Make sure you are consistently getting quality sleep. For most people that means between 5 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night.
2. As best you can, eliminate or reduce constant sources of stress in your life. If you can’t eliminate a source of stress for whatever reason, then learn some helpful stress management skills.
3. Get your body moving. Start exercising, stretching and being more physically active on a daily basis.
4. Start eating a healthy diet that includes foods that don’t cause chronic inflammation.
