Hello and welcome to ‘Healthy You’. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step and hopefully if you are here it means you are interested in healthy living – definitely a step in the right direction!
Being healthy is a lifestyle… a way of living, it’s not just a fad!
People say a healthy body is a healthy mind and I have found this to be so true. I find whenever I’m exercising, eating right, and getting enough sleep, my mind is sharper, I have more energy and simple things like decision making are far easier and dare I say more precise. The reverse is however the case when I’m not looking after myself, for example lack of sleep often results in a stressed me and a very diminished resilience threshold. Over the years, researchers and doctors have also found that maintaining a healthy lifestyle could add more than a whole decade to your life which is absolutely awesome!
Many of us already know these things but still struggle to maintain healthy habits regularly. Take me for example, my life sometimes gets so busy and fast and has me reaching for takeaway meals more frequently than I would like. Also I have to work long hours and guess what’s the first to go out of the window to help me cope? Sadly it’s my exercise routine (whenever it actually does exist) which is ridiculous because regular exercise is the tool I definitely need to help me cope. Personally, I know I can do a lot more for myself in this space and so have committed to doing that this year… not as a new year resolution but rather a personal commitment to achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
I would also love to help others looking to make healthy changes to their lifestyle and so this web site is dedicated to providing tips, advice, resources, ideas and products to improve your health and well being, to help you achieve a healthy lifestyle and be a healthier you.
