Everybody needs three basic physical needs met every day:
- Eat! – The saying goes, “You can’t outwork a bad diet.” Everybody needs enough of the right foods to have enough energy for the day. Most of us overeat processed food items. The best choice of foods can be summed up in 27 words: Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no processed sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.
- Sleep! – Take a look around your bedroom and set yourself up for the best night’s sleep. Keep your room cool. Consider using a white noise machine or something similar, like a fan, to block other noises. Shut off the television and put your phone out of reach at least 30 minutes before you plan to fall asleep. Read a book. Write in a journal. Let your mind shut down and practice slow and controlled breathing through your nose.
- Move! – Getting 30-60 minutes of intentional movement every day helps you sleep better and your digestive system processes all the good food you eat every day better. Combining cardio and strength training is a great way to build up your muscles, increase your metabolism, lose weight, and strengthen your bones. It’s important to vary your movements so you avoid the dreaded plateau.
Most of us know “what” we are supposed to do. We also know that we get in our own way. We get busy, lazy, bored. We lose focus.
If you are looking for someone to help keep you on track, provide some accountability and actually care about how you’re doing, you have come to the right place.
