Tips for a Common Sense Approach to Good Health
Apr 7, 2020

Reading time 2 min.

Most people strive to stay healthy, but often the information they read can be conflicting. This leaves people not really knowing what to do and, in turn, they end up doing nothing. Staying healthy and safe should be met with a common sense approach. Chances are good that you already have an idea of what you should be doing. Here are eight reminders to inspire you to be the healthiest you can be.

Eat the Right Foods

Eating right and changing bad habits is one of the best things you can do for your body and you can start today. Stay away from processed foods, refined sugar, soft drinks and fast food. Incorporate more fruits, vegetables and whole grains into your diet. Practice portion control and only eat until you’re comfortably full.

Get Moving

When you begin to add exercise to your daily routine, do it slowly. Start walking or doing low-impact exercise a few days per week and gradually increase. People unfortunately have an all-or-nothing attitude toward exercise and this is unwise. Any exercise you add to your life will benefit your heart and overall health, so choose an activity you really enjoy and start slow.

Be Aware of Your Surroundings

Staying healthy and safe also has a lot to do with the things around you. When you’re out and about, be aware of your surroundings. Take precautions on your commutes by avoiding dangerous settings and paying close attention to hazardous weather situations. Should an injury take place, have emergency numbers close by as well as The Bruner Law Firm injury attorney that will assist you in the case of lost work and wages.

Practice Good Hygiene

In order to avoid getting sick, make good hygiene a regular part of your everyday routine. Wash hands throughout the day to cut down on the risk of spreading germs. At the office, remember to periodically clean your workstation with cleansing wipes and protect others by staying home if you’re sick. If you’re on the road a lot, keep a small container of hand sanitizer in the car.

Avoid Consuming Harmful Substances

Just like eating better, it’s also important to stop purposely putting harmful things into your body. If you smoke, stop. There are a lot of helpful cessation products on the market for you to take advantage of. If you drink, try reducing the amount you consume, or stop drinking altogether. Your body and your wallet will thank you.

Don’t Burn the Candle at Both Ends

So many people are conditioned to work as hard as they can and often try to eke out every second of the day. While this is great for job production, it can get to a point where it’s unhealthy. Burning the candle at both ends can lead to stress and exhaustion which may cause a lowered immune system and weight gain. Know your limits and be kind to yourself. Take frequent breaks and get a good night’s sleep.

Protect Yourself From UV Rays

UV, or ultraviolet rays, from the sun or artificial tanning booths can pose a serious threat. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can cause skin cancer and damage. It’s imperative to use a high SPF sunscreen every day and avoid laying out in the sun. Abstain from visiting tanning parlors and instead, use a self-tanner or embrace your healthy, paler skin.

Keep Yourself Hydrated

You can solve a myriad of problems by simply drinking more water. Staying hydrated keeps your skin soft and supple. It also helps flush toxins from your body which is good for your kidneys. Drinking water aids in weight loss, too. If you struggle with drinking water, add a slice of lemon, or try a sugar-free drink mix to boost your intake before switching to plain water.

Improve Your Health

Staying healthy and safe is something everybody wants and is mostly a question of using common sense. If you eat healthy, exercise, keep hydrated and stay mindful of risky situations, your health will increase monumentally.

Wellness Coaching
$20 USD
50 & Beyond Health & Wellbeing Discovery Session

Join me for a comprehensive look into what it will take to stay physically and mentally strong as you move through the second half of your life.

We all want to age without the fear of suffering from a chronic illness and still have the energy and strength to live the life we want.

The number one reason people fail to stay healthy as they age is the inability to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for health transformation.

Through working with 1000's of clients over the last 20 years, I have been able to develop a coaching program that not only looks at nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management but also how to develop the right mindset needed to succeed.

Having a plan is not as important as having the ability to implement it.

If you are someone who struggles to follow healthy habits consistently. Or you are someone who wants to learn more about what they need to do personally to avoid chronic illness. Then my 30-minute Discovery Session is ideal for you.

From the 30 minutes we spend together, we will go through in specific detail what it is you can do today when it comes to what to eat, how to get the most from exercise, how to develop a powerful sleep routine and how to build a healthy environment needed to live a healthy life.

And with over 20 years of coaching experience in the health & wellness industry, I have witnessed firsthand what it takes to consistently follow the right habits and behaviours for lasting change.

Expect to hear things that will challenge what you have always been told about nutrition, exercise, sleep and stress management. As someone who is over 50 and is stronger, fitter and healthier than I was in my 20s, 30s, & 40s, I am well-placed to know what works and doesn't as we move through this period of our lives.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.
