Choice is the first step toward improved health. Consider how many choices you make each day: How much time to spend with technology vs. reading or interacting with loved ones, dietary choices and even the words you speak.
Rest includes good sleep but also taking time to relax during the day. Create spaces in your home and office for brief relaxation.
Environment is the space we make for our lives —
inside our homes, in our yards and the places we visit for recreation. Does your personal environment reflect the life you want to live?
Activity includes stretching, muscle development and aerobic activity. Research indicates that an increase in activity translates directly into improved health.
Trust in God speaks to the relationship between
spirituality and healing. Our faith, beliefs and hopes all affect our health.
Interpersonal relationships are important to your
well-being. Knowing you have the support of others can contribute to improved health.
Outlook colors your perspective on life. Recent
research highlighting the influence of the mind on the body suggests that attitude does influence your health and can even impact the progression of disease.
Nutrition is the fuel that drives the whole system.
Small improvements and strategic substitutions
produce profound results.
Research indicates that an increase in activity translates directly into improved health. Keep your shoes and supplies handy so there are no excuses to skip your walk or class.
