Tips for Getting Your Health Back on Track

It’s normal to struggle with making your health a priority when you’re a busy mom. If you have been following my blog, you are probably aware that I have faced a lot of health concerns since the start of 2019. I have been making conscious efforts to improve my overall health. I know that a lot of working moms like me have also let their wellness slip between the cracks lately and are looking for ways to get back on track.

May this post give you ideas on how you can become a healthier person. I do hope we all start to feel better and have more natural energy when we put the following tips into practice.

Schedule A Visit to the Doctor & Dentist

You can get your health back on track fairly quickly by scheduling a visit to your doctor and a dentist. It has been my practice to do an annual physical exam. I also go to the dentist regularly, especially because my TMJ issues came back last year. If you’re looking to brighten your smile or straighten your teeth, then look into working with the professionals like DFY Dental. You can find a lot of dental clinics with passion to help you fall back in love with your smile and not feel embarrassed about your teeth. When you meet with your doctor and dentist, be sure to bring up any discomfort or health issues that are bothering you so you can find a treatment plan and feel better fast.

Join A Gym

Another way to get your health back on track is to sign up for a gym nearby. Paying money for a gym will motivate you to go and workout regularly. Consider working with a personal trainer if you struggle to know what exercises to do or have a lot of unwanted pounds to lose. Joining a gym is your first step in the right direction of putting your health first and taking actions that are going to allow you to improve your heart and outside appearance. I know, I know. This is easier said than done. We bought a treadmill last year, and it has been collecting dust ever since. But my husband and I have been trying so hard to add some physical activities into our daily routine especially because of our sedentary lifestyle brought about by our jobs.

Keep A Journal

Your mental health is a vital aspect of your overall well-being and how well you’re able to function each day. It’s a wise idea to keep a journal and write down your emotions and what’s bothering you. You may also want to use it to record down what you’re grateful for so you can remind yourself of all the blessings you have in your life. A journal is an excellent way to see your thoughts down on paper and a tool that can help you work through feelings and emotional issues you’re facing. I have been struggling with anxiety since January last year, and keeping a gratitude journal is one of the many things that helped me manage my episodes.

Plan Your Meals in Advance

If you are following me on Instagram, you have probably seen in my my IG stories that I spend my Saturdays cooking our meals for the week. Your diet is also a significant factor you should be concerned about as you strive to improve your health. Get yourself back on track and supercharge your health by planning your meals in advance and getting in the habit of cooking for yourself. The foods and drinks you put in your body can affect your moods, weight, and energy levels. Avoid putting it off for any longer and start a new way of eating food today. Consume a lot of fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins and try your best to cut out sugary drinks and alcohol. Plan your meals for the week so you can avoid the temptation of wanting to eat out.

I know that these tips may sound so simple, but a lot of us still lose sight of these things. Remain patient with yourself because changing your behaviors can be tricky and take time. Celebrate your small successes along the way and set goals so you can track your progress and stay focused.

Cheers to staying healthy this 2020!
