Love Yourself and Live Healthy

In large part, we are in control of our health, not our doctors - and taking control of your health doesn't really depend on whether or not you have medical conditions. Taking control of your health means developing the best habits and having discipline.

The most important thing you can do is educate yourself. Learn about your health and how you can take care of your body. Having a healthy body gives you a healthy heart. Sometimes it's as easy as just finding different ways of doing things.

Here are some tips to keep your body healthy:

1. You need to take a really good vitamin. Does that mean it must be expensive? No. I mean one that is 100% natural and will address your body's daily nutritional supplemental needs.

2. You need to keep your body moving. We are supposed to walk at least 10,000 steps a day. The best way to monitor that is to have a walking monitor that can be clipped to your belt or pants. When you get your heart pumping you are getting your body moving and that will get your body in better shape all around.

3. You need to eat more vegetables and less processed foods. The microwave is not your friend. We have to get back to making dinners instead of using processed foods that are easy and quick. I fall into that category. I'm retraining myself to make better choices for my family.

Here a tip: On Sundays, why not make it a family fun cooking day? Get everyone in the kitchen and make 5 dinners for the week, then put them in the freezer when cooled. During the week, pull out a dinner from the freezer and leave it in the fridge to thaw while at work or school. It is something to get used to, but it can make Sundays very memorable and fun.

These are simple changes but they could save you or someone you love from something very serious. It only takes a few good changes and you can have a healthier life.

Set goals and work on your mind and thought patterns. You have to believe that you love yourself enough to be healthy. Learning to accept what you can't change, but striving to change what you can, is the key.

You'll succeed in living healthy when you are comfortable with yourself and make healthier choices.
