Essential habits for better health

Are there essential habits for better health?

The other day I was listening to a very powerful presentation by Dr. P. Osborne titled 7 Essential Habits of a Gluten Free Warrior and it has inspired this post today because it made me think about the essential habits for better health we must create for ourselves. The presentation made me wonder if we are aware of how we are making better habits around our health? (Be sure to read to the end to receive your FREE access to this awesome 3 part series…)

Before I start I want to share a couple of quotes from the presentation:

People spend half of their life spending all of their health to acquire wealth and the second half of their life spending more than their wealth trying to get their health back”

“The #1 cause of bankruptcy and financial stress are costs related to health problems.  So it’s simple – make health your 1st investment”

“What do you mean organic food is too expensive.  Your health is not a place to save money. You’ll spend 10 times as much later at the hospital.  (on drugs and surgery)

And I have always heard that “Prevention is better than treatment”.

So what is my point today?  It is much easier to get control of your health and well-being.  Once that is done everything becomes much simpler. Thinking, sleeping, exercise, nutrition, hydration, breathing.

Here are some tips that will are the essential habits for better health:

  • Make your health a #1 priority-invest in you
  • Exercise every day! Especially on those days when you don’t want to – your body will thank you
  • Drink Water – 1/2 your body weight in ounces each and every day – your body and mind will thank you
  • Laugh often and deeply
  • Have gratitude for what you do have in your life now
  • Meditate/pray daily 
  • Eat Real Organic Vegetables and Fruits, Pastured Meats from local farmers whenever possible
  • Eliminate all wheat, grains, and gluten
  • Ask for help if you need it
  • Take time to learn the lessons in what you have been given
  • Be careful what you allow going into your body and mind – thoughts are things and impact body and mind
  • Educate yourself on better health and  well-being
  • Be present in your life
  • Play – it can be a magical way to live

    I think the exercise and eat right is huge, but so is praying. We get sick so easily when we are stressed, and if we can let it go and let God, we are doing ourselves a huge favor.

    Wow I hadn’t realised that ill health is the no. 1 cause of bankruptcy but it makes sense when you think about it. Business owners need to take care of themselves, it doesn’t need to be that way. Thanks for the post.

    Loved your tips – drink more water is one I need to take on board. My water is usually hot with coffee in it…

    I know it’s hard for some people to drink half their body weight in water each day. Water has no taste similar to soda pop so most don’t consider it an essential WANT to do let along must do!

    How would you flavor water so it’s still good for you and prompts people to drink more of it?

    Any suggestions?

    1. Wendy Bottrell Post author

      Hi Bonnie, water by definition should not have a taste! And I can appreciate how hard it is to stop drinking pop because over 16 years ago I gave it up. What I did was stop drinking pop and begin drinking bubbly water because it had the same feel as pop. Within a few months I then went to plain filtered water and have been happily drinking that ever since. If you want to flavor your water you could consider real lemon, real lime in the water. Hope that helps. If you have any questions or if I can help let me know. Best Regards, Wendy

    Along similar lines to “organic is too expensive”, there’s the guy who, when told by his doctor he needed to spend an hour a day exercising, said he couldn’t fit it into his busy schedule. Doc replied “Well which suits your busy schedule best – exercise 1 hr in 24 or being dead 24 in 24?”

    People underestimate the value of play. I’m glad to see it on your list!
