A Healthier You


Making healthy choices is at the forefront of most people’s minds. Unfortunately, many people don’t know where to begin. With all the information trying to pull you in one direction or the other, start by learning the basics.

Being in good health helps you avoid certain illnesses and diseases. It also helps your body to bounce back quicker should you get sick or require surgery. If you want to make sure you are making the right choices to improve your health, the best thing to do is go back to basics.


The biggest hurdle for most is making sure you eat right and take the right supplements. Make an appointment with your doctor and discuss the best path to take moving forward. Have an idea of what vitamins or supplements you’re considering and the benefits of them. Discussing with your doctor how probiotic pills can improve your gut health or vitamin B can help boost your energy gives your health professional insight into what your concerns are. Taking direction from your provider will keep you from inadvertently making yourself sick because of interference with any medication you may be taking already. 

With the constant availability of fast food and the countless demands on your time, it can be so convenient to just drive through somewhere and shove a burger down your throat on your way to your next responsibility. The thought of consuming processed foods or hidden sugars and fat never comes into play. Time, or the lack of extra time, can contribute to bad habits if you let it.

Instead of focusing on the time involved in meal prep or cooking at home, budget your time to allow you to keep healthy food at the ready. Poor eating choices usually come from a lack of preparedness. Something as simple as keeping a bowl of boiled eggs, peeled and ready to eat, can help you avoid the urge to hit a drive-through. An added bonus, they’re filling, low in calories, packed with vitamins and minerals and provide lean proteins.


Never underestimate the importance of drinking water. Not only does it help you to stay away from sugary drinks like soda, the health benefits are phenomenal. It improves your complexion and helps to keep pimples controlled and your skin bright and healthy.

Oftentimes hunger and thirst can be confused. If you’re trying to cut back on how much you eat because your portion sizes are a concern, drink a glass of water before eating. This will not only hydrate and help internal body functions, it’ll help fill you up without eating as much.

In short, drinking sufficient water helps to keep your body functions and blood volume at optimal levels. As if everything drinking it does for you isn’t enough, an added bonus, there are no calories, sugars or fat; it’s just pure goodness for your body.


You often hear about the importance of getting adequate sleep and may shrug it off. A word of advice: don’t. When you’re sleeping, your body has the opportunity to complete the many processes that are necessary to keep you healthy. Not only that, poor resting habits can lead to poor mental and physical productivity. It can also be linked to obesity. People who regularly skimp on their nightly slumber tend to make poor choices when it comes to food, resulting in consuming foods that are higher in calories, fat and sugar.

Trying to foster better habits to be healthier can be overwhelming if you let it. When you aren’t sure what to do or whose advice to follow, just go back to basics. Being healthy doesn’t have to be overly complicated.
