Make Your Health a Priority During National Staying Healthy Month

Make Your Health a Priority During National Staying Healthy Month

Let’s take better care of ourselves during National Staying Healthy Month.

Unfortunately, often New Year’s resolutions come and go and we get right back to living the way we once did, instead of the way that we should live.  January is a great time to assess what is important to us.  For most of us, there’s nothing more vital than the health and wellness of our loved ones and ourselves.  Perhaps this is why January was dubbed National Staying Healthy Month.  In recognition of this month, let’s make an effort to live by creating our wellness, health, abundance, and prosperity.

Healthy Diet

One of the best ways to care for ourselves and our loved ones is by encouraging healthy eating.  This month, we should try to engage with our families and friends by suggesting to try new foods and embrace healthier diets.  Some easy adjustments that we can make include drinking more water and avoiding sugary drinks, trying new fruits and veggies every week, and putting healthy spins on classic dishes.  By promoting healthy eating, it’s likely that we may feel better this month.

Exercise

Along with a healthy diet, getting enough physical activity is one of the keys to achieving more brilliant health.  While we don’t always have time for a daily gym session, there are plenty of other ways we can get the exercise we need.  For instance, we can take our dogs for daily walks, run around with our children at the park, or even do some easy exercises during commercials when we’re watching television.  Another easy option is parking our cars further from our ultimate destinations and walking a bit more to the entrance.  Stairs are also a terrific opportunity to get some unexpected and unplanned calorie burning.  Healthy changes don’t need to be major to be impactful!

Mental Health

It’s important that we remember that health is not only physical.  That’s why we need to make efforts to take care of our mental health and the mental health of our loved ones.  For instance, if we find ourselves feeling depressed and frustrated, we should take a break.  Often, stepping back and seeing all the positives in our lives remind us of how lucky and content we may truly be.  Additionally, if we notice that our children are overstressed, then let’s remind them that life is about enjoying themselves.  Let them take a day off from all their daily activities and simply let them enjoy being kids.

The ‘attitude of gratitude’ goes a long way in allowing us to recognize what we do have, not what we don’t have!  It has been suggested that stress and gratitude cannot coexist in our brains.  So if we find ourselves feeling stressed, by defaulting to gratitude, we can actually ease and or erase the stress, even if temporarily.
