3 Essentials To Good Health That You Should Never Be Too Busy For

Good health isn’t just a state of mind. It manifests in your physical strength and even your appearance. The trouble is, most of us are too busy to even look in the mirror, let alone worry about how healthy we might appear! The only time we truly realise that things have gone wrong is when we’re facing an illness that knocks us out of action. But we shouldn’t be living life like that. As they say, prevention is always better than cure:

Sleep

Getting up early and then staying up late does us no good at all. It’s actually more tricky to fall asleep when we’re over-tired than when we’re not too sleepy at all. Think back to the days with your baby. Remember how grizzly and fussy they were when they missed their nap time? This still happens to adults, but we’re usually better self-controlled to avoid the teary tantrums! Of course, if you miss too much sleep too often, there’s no saying how far you might go as your self-control slips away.


Sleep is essential for physical well-being, your emotional health, and your mental alertness and function. If you’re not sleeping well, you can’t focus, you can’t remember things well, and you might be emotionally volatile. It really isn’t worth the sacrifice. Prioritize your sleep and enjoy better health and cognitive function

Food

We all have to eat to maintain healthy blood-sugar levels. But what we eat can have a positive or detrimental effect on our physical health. Busy people often struggle to find the time or the energy to cook nutritionally balanced meals. Just shopping for the ingredients is a challenge. You can use places like Caruso's Natural Health to fill in the gaps you regularly skip out. Supplements have their place, especially if you’re becoming ill.


A good diet is always the best approach, but even then you can be missing out on some of the essentials your body needs. If you have any regular problems, that might stem from your diet. Consider finding a supplement or herbal remedy to help give your diet that boost it needs.

Exercise

We all know we’re supposed to be exercising four or five times a week. We’re also all struggling to achieve that. The cost and the time are just too much for many busy mums. There are plenty of workout videos you can access for free. There are also motivating gym and dance classes you can take online for a low-cost subscription. Walking isn’t enough on its own. The whole body needs strengthening and cardio work.


Mixing up your exercise is a good idea. While walking the kids to school and back every day is a great step in the right direction, you still need to work those core and arm muscles too. Yoga is great for this, and you can practice any time of the day or night. Try swimming with the kids or getting on your bikes at the weekend. Every little helps. What are your 3 essential good health activities?
