Ask Yourself These Three Questions to Simplify Your Health Routine
The easiest way to be healthier is to simplify your health routine and the thought process that surrounds it. Before committing to a daunting routine that is difficult, unenjoyable, and unsustainable, consider the following points:
What are you trying to do? For example, are you trying to lose weight, gain energy, improve mobility, or something else? Your answer to this question could alter your plan of action, so consider your health goals then plan a health care routine around that.
Is your routine healthy? Once you’ve determined your health and wellness goals, it’s time to establish a game plan. Think about things you like to do, things that are relatively simple, and things that will help you reach your wellness goals. Then ask yourself if those habits are healthy in the long run. For example, though cutting calories is beneficial, cutting the wrong calories could unhealthy. Essentially, before you establish your wellness routine, make sure that it will benefit both your current and future selves.
Is your routine sustainable? It’s easy to get excited about a new wellness routine, and relatively easy to keep at it for a few days. But you must ask yourself if the routine itself is sustainable – could you regularly engage in these habits over the course of a few months, years, or even a lifetime? Remember, don’t bite off more than you can chew lest you fall back into old habits just a few weeks in. Instead, build habits that are easy to maintain and a little bit healthier than the habits you’re trying to replace.
3 Tips for Better Health
Now that we understand what to look for in a health and wellness routine, let’s discuss three simple tips you can use to easily achieve better health.
Tip #1: Simplify Your Weight Loss
The two primary ways to lose weight are proper diet and exercise. Importantly, you can improve your chances of long-term success (and make the process not suck as bad), just by simplifying these two health facets. For example, instead of jumping head-first into the next diet fad, consider what foods you already enjoy and make healthy modifications to those. You should also watch your portion sizes, eating smaller meals more frequently throughout the day rather than one or two large meals that could put extra strain on your metabolic process.
Employ the same principle when determining a new exercise routine. Don’t push yourself too hard in the beginning, as this could actually hinder your progress by damaging muscles and increasing overall discomfort. Instead, think about ways you like to move your body and then incorporate those into your daily routine. As long as you’re moving, your body will thank you for it.
Tip #2: Improve Your Mindset
The next component of health is mindset. Good or bad, your mindset will largely set the tone for the rest of your day. If you struggle with chronic stress, anxiety, or depression, then talk about it, both to yourself and an external support system. Close friends are often a good source of emotional support, as is professional therapy, or simply joining a community of peers. Also, remember that you don’t always have to follow the advice you receive; just listen with an open mind and proceed with whatever feels right for you.
Of course, sometimes talking about it isn’t enough, in which case supplements or medication might be necessary. Natural supplements like CBD, vitamin D, or St. John’s wort help many people and are accessible over the counter in vitamin shops or CBD retailers like Doc’s Oils.
Other things you can do to easily improve mood include exercise and journaling. Notably, both of these activities can help get you to process your emotions and work through them instead of bottling them up for Future You to deal with.
Tip #3: Check Your Gut Health
Lastly, improve your gut health. Importantly, your gastrointestinal system processes all nutrients, which can affect things like mood, mental stability, sleep patterns, energy levels, and more. By maintaining good gut health, you can improve all of these areas relatively quickly and easily.
Some tips to improve gut health include eating a cleaner, more natural diet, incorporating healthy bacteria from yogurt, and adding CBG to your daily routine. Notably, research suggests that CBG, a hemp-based cannabinoid, could improve gastrointestinal health for better nutrient absorption.
