Climbing a New Hill: Starting Again With Your Health

Picture - CC0 Licence


We can feel like life has taken us down a certain pathway that doesn't give us much freedom. When we make certain choices, especially in relation to our diets, we can feel that we are depriving ourselves. But also, when it comes to our health in general, we may suffer from the fact that “old habits die hard.” When it comes to your health, you need to take control of your life through this component. It's not just being “you are what you eat,” but it's about starting all over again. When it comes to your health, which is such a wide-ranging category, how can you start all over again?



The Right Supplements for Your Needs

We can completely change our diet, which is the most important thing, but when we have the right supplements it can take the edge off, especially if we suffer from specific ailments. A very prominent supplement these days is CBD oil. While there are plenty of suppliers like Penguin CBD that can highlight the benefits of certain CBD oils you've got to ask yourself if it can help you with an aspect of your health that you have been struggling with. With something like CBD oil, it covers so much ground in terms of pain management, stress management, and pretty much everything in between. But you should also think about the things that are your Achilles heel, like if you fall off the wagon with sugary treats. You shouldn't beat yourself up about it, but if you know that you will feel terrible the next day because your body doesn't take too kindly to these substances, you could take another supplement like activated charcoal. Commonly used in hospitals for people who suffer low-level poisoning, it can help minimize bloating and brain fog. When you put in the right supplements, especially to fix your individual weaknesses, this can make a big difference.



The Importance of Routine for Your Mind and Body

Learning how your mind and body react to situations is partly to do with the routine you set up for yourself. When you begin to understand why you need to go to sleep and wake up at the same time but also how good it makes you feel, this is when you may understand just how important routines can help your mind and your body. Once you start to address the things that can cause you to feel less than 100%, you can begin to fix these things with certain practices. The important thing is to build a routine that you can stick to. Many people wake up feeling exhausted because they haven't slept properly due to the wrong things. Perhaps you don't have a very organized life. But we have to remember that humans are built for routine. When you start to hang your life upon certain routines, you will feel the benefits. But you can start small by incorporating a nighttime routine to help you wind down for bed. This is going to be better for you than going to bed with a problem weighing on you.



Simplification for Your Mental Health

When you try to eat well all the time you may become obsessed with what the outcome is. Many people embark on exercise regimes to look better and become obsessed with getting the perfect body. But have you ever stopped to consider what would happen if you got the perfect body? Does this mean your journey is at an end? You spent your entire time obsessing about the end result, when you get there you'll find something else to pursue. The most important thing we have to consider is to remember that we are shaped by our thoughts. When you obsess over something like health, this isn't good either. It's important to be mindful of what you put into your body or the exercises you do but when you start to step back and address how much information you are loading into your mind that is not beneficial to you can help you to start streamlining. Simplifying your mind will help you to make things easier in terms of choice but it will also reduce decision fatigue and will make you happier.



Listen to Your Body

Another thing that we can be obsessed with is over-exercising. There are many reasons why we should exercise but we have to remember that if we overdo it, this will have negative effects. When you are looking to start all over again with your physical health it's important to think about the quality of exercise rather than the quantity. Thankfully, there are so many different resources that can show you just how exercise is about fatiguing the muscles so it grows back better. We have so much information at our disposal that can point us towards the right resources for our well-being in terms of exercise. While many people are looking to exercise smarter rather than harder, this is when things like the X3 bar or Body By Science can come in handy. Having the focus on the quality of exercise is far better than spending 6 days a week in the gym. It also gives you the opportunity to live a more balanced life. It may sound like conjecture but with exercise routines that last 10-minutes but are so intense you won't want to do it again for a week is the way forward. But also it's something that is built into our biomechanics. So when you do something of this intensity, rest up. When your body is ready to go again it will let you know.
