Eight Simple Ways to Reduce Stress and Improve Your Health
(c) 2012 Carol James, Founder of InspiredLiving.com
health and well-being is determined to a large extent by the care
you give your body, mind and spirit. Its your responsibility
to treat your body in ways that nourish and enhance it wholesome
nutrition, movement and exercise, pampering, clean, fresh air,
healthy environments, pure water, exposure to nature, etc. You
feed your mind by focusing on thoughts that feel good and are uplifting.
You nurture your spirit by taking care of yourself and following
your heart. These can pay big dividends to your well-being and
joy of life, because when you feel sick, weary, drained, burned-out
and unhealthy, the quality of your relationships, productivity,
attitude and motivation suffers.
Here are eight ways to take charge of your health and well-being:
yourself with kindness and love instead of abusing your body
with excessive amounts of food, alcohol, drugs or overwork.
when you are tired instead of pushing to exhaustion.
nourishing and wholesome food instead of bingeing on junk food.
fresh air as often as possible instead of spending inordinate
amounts of time in stagnant, artificial environments.
deeply and fully instead of shallowly and weakly.
activities that bring pleasure and enjoyment instead of activities
that are boring, tedious or exhausting.
frequent breaks to exercise and move your body instead of spending
long hours glued to the desk or computer.
an optimistic attitude (what's good and right) toward life instead
of a pessimistic attitude (what's bad and wrong).
