Take care of yourself, because no one else will

You have got to take care of your health. It’s not funny anymore that several people are not looking after themselves, are not doing what they need to do, and are living in ignorance. It might be a more leisurely life right now, but later down the line, when facing problems that could have been avoided if you had looked after yourself a little better, you won’t think so then. In this article, we will look at some of the things you should do to care for yourself, so keep reading if you want to learn more.

take care of yourself

What You’re Putting Into Your Body

The first thing you need to think about is what you are putting into your body. Do you have any idea how important this is? Your body needs certain things to work properly, and if you’re not fueling it to the best of your ability, then this isn’t going to happen. You will end up feeling slow, lethargic, lacking energy, and generally not being able to do what you want to do.

So, you need to ensure that you are balancing what you’re putting into your body. Make sure you balance meals as much as possible, drink low sugar protein shakes if you’re struggling with reducing your sugar intake, and so much more. 

How Much You’re Moving Around

Exercise is essential to being as healthy as possible, and convincing yourself otherwise is dangerous. The human body needs to be moved to stay healthy, and that doesn’t just mean walking from the sofa to get a snack and then walking back again. At the very least, you should go on a walk of around twenty minutes every day, and then you can build up your fitness levels from there if you want to. 

Moving around will make you feel better and stop your body from shutting down. Dedicate yourself, and you will see results. 

Getting A Break When It’s Needed

Lastly, it’s vital to recognize when you need a break and to actually take one. Remember, you’re no good to anyone if you’re burnt out. How can you care for yourself or others if you’re running on empty? It’s not a situation you want to find yourself in, so prioritize your well-being and give yourself the rest you need.

I hope that you have found this article helpful. Now, you can see some of the things you must consider when caring for yourself. Not everyone can take care of your health the way you can, so you have to stop relying on others and start relying on yourself.

Spring break and breaking goals in March (Monthly Wrap-Up #3 2023)

It’s time to recap March 2023 and all the good things that came throughout the month. Honestly, March was a quiet month. I didn’t have a busy work month, which could be better when running a small business. I had the opportunity to spend more time with family, work on other projects, and take much-needed rest. I ran my last half marathon of the season and achieved a mega goal. All in all, March was a great month.  What’s up with the running and wellness? Physically and mentally, I haven’t felt this strong in a long time. For the first…

Finding motivation in February (Monthly wrap-up #2 2023)

Finding motivation in February (Monthly wrap-up #2 2023)

It’s time for another monthly wrap-up. I don’t know what happened to me, but I got seriously motivated in February to tackle some goals. I do know what happened. In January, I ran the Hot Chocolate 10K, and I wouldn’t say I liked how I felt when I finished. I felt down about my performance, and I wanted to do better. It’s just like the Sister Hazel song, Change Your Mind. “If you want to be somebody else, If you’re tired of fighting battles with yourself. If you want to be somebody else, Change your mind.” I’ve been living in my…

Weekly wrap-up #5: hurt back, avocado chickpea toast, reading and binging tv

Welcome to another weekly wrap-up. It’s the time to talk about the good, the bad, and everything else from the week before on the blog. This week I found myself down with a pulled muscle or pinched nerve in my back. On Tuesday, I reached for my backpack, and I felt a pain in my back. I didn’t think about it and reached down to pick up my backpack after that and went home to work out. The following day, I reached for a toy on the floor, and the same thing happened, but the pain was worse.   My week…

Weekly wrap-up #4 2022: more running, breaking a hard drive, and not enjoying lunch

Welcome to another week of the weekly wrap-up. I can’t believe we’re already at #4. Most importantly, I can’t think I’ve managed to put up a weekly wrap-up so consistently. I hope it’s not the “kiss of death” for saying that so early in the year.   What do I say about this week? Work kept me busy. I’m not complaining about being busy with work. It has been hectic yet fulfilling at the same time. As a small business owner, these are the times we depend on to keep the business rolling all year. Workouts didn’t come easy, but I…
