Monday Morning Make-Over Series – Three Easy Health Habits for You and Your Family

5d2b2570-98cf-4be6-9f43-2ad1448f19bd_B320Health doesn’t have to be complicated – in fact, if you and your family develop three simple habits, your chances of being healthy will skyrocket.

First, get enough sleep. You have to give your brain a chance to rest and replenish itself after your long and challenging day. Most adults need seven or eight hours, children even more – do your best to get sound, uninterrupted sleep in a completely dark room, and if you miss sleep, do your best to make it up within the next few days — it’s one of the healthiest things you can do.

Second, drink lots of water. Your body is largely made of water, and you need to constantly add water to the system to keep it working. Most people need about a half ounce for every pound of body weight – in other words, if you weigh 128 pounds, you need 64 ounces of water, or about eight 8-ounce glasses each day, while if you weight 192 pounds, you’d need about 96 ounces, or about twelve 8-ounce glasses per day. And this means water, not coffee, soda or iced tea, which your body treats like food. You need water – drink a lot.

Finally, find and visit health and wellness professionals who can advise you, help you catch health problems early, and support you in creating the best possible quality of life. Having a relationship with a family doctor, dentist, chiropractor, and other assorted providers keeps you aware of the best information possible to make good lifestyle decisions and choices. Ask your advisors how often you need to check in with them, and get the coaching you need.

These three habits will help you and your family to be as healthy as possible!

Happy Monday!
