When it comes to ones health, you can’t help but to wonder what are the most important things you need in order to maintain a well balanced health. I’ve compiled a list of top 5 doctors in your life as they are often referred to as doctors due to their miraculous benefits in encountering them.
Sunshine is a key component in our daily life as it is the necessary Vitamin D. Natural Vitamin D comes from your daily exposure to the sunlight. As winter is approaching, you have to squeeze in your sun time as much as you can. The cold weather means that the sunny warm weather might not be as common as summer days.
Water is a NECESSITY! Let me repeat that water is a NECESSITY! And I learned that the hard way. I was a water hater with a passion. I just hated water and couldn’t stand drinking it because it was tasteless. I never understood how essential water was until I was so dehydrated and was getting lightheaded. When they tell you to drink at least 8 cups of water a day, it is best to follow that rule. There’s such a difference in your body when you drink enough water versus when you don’t.
Rest and Sleep is another essential item recommended. Ever since I became a mom, I’ve been sleep deprived and have been for the past 6 years. In the beginning it was because of the kids, but then eventually I’m not sure what the cause was. But it was impacting my daily life. There were days where I would feel delirious and drowsy from lack of sleep and rest. Just recently, I’ve been able to gain a little more sleep on a daily basis and it has made a great improvement on my daily functioning abilities. I felt more alert and was able to do more each day. Sleep is an important factor in your everyday life.
Air can mean fresh air form the outside or just air to breath in. They recommend that you take a 1 minute of breathing every so often to help you not only relax but also help calm you nerves when needed, boy does this mom of two need to breath often during the day.
Exercise/Diet – As much as exercise and diet is needed, I know that it can difficult for many people to include that in their daily routines, including me. Try to squeeze a little of exercise here and there, but it’s never enough. I keep telling myself that I need to stick to a routine on a daily basis, but I can manage for a week and then not go back to it. Diet and nutrition is also a big factor. Eating well is a big deal, but its more idealistic then realistic. Just as my exercising goes, eating well happens for a bit and then the weekend comes and it’s a whole new story.
