Your health is your wealth; in order to achieve true success in any area of your life, it is essential to first set the foundation of physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual health. With a solid, healthy foundation, the overall body is able to operate at optimal capacity to achieve your life goals. The keys to obtaining and maintaining health are ultimately discipline and self-control. You have to take control of how you organize and spend your time, what you eat, and having the discipline to be consistent with practicing healthy habits. Take control of your health with these habits.

1. Don’t skip your annual wellness appointments

Just because you feel fine doesn’t mean you have a good reason to cancel your annual wellness appointment. It is important to get evaluated by your primary care provider on an annual basis to test for any new developments of conditions in the body. A thorough wellness evaluation should include blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and testing. On the same token, listen to your body when you feel something is off. Even if the feeling goes away, it is important not to brush it off. It could be an early signal of an underlying condition. Don’t be afraid to speak up on any changes you are going through mentally and physically. Notify your primary care provider of all supplements you anticipate consuming to make sure your body is not at risk for adverse effects.

2. Arrange & organize your schedule

In order to be consistent with your physical exercise activity and spiritual enlightening activity, it is important to get control of your time. The best way to do this is to organize your daily schedule. Planning your days in advance not only holds you accountable but also makes you a more productive person who is intentional with their time. When planning your schedule, take note of the following:

Plan your sleep and wake-up times so that you are getting adequate sleep each night.

Include your permanent work hours, and give yourself extra travel time in case of traffic.

Assign exercise days to your lighter days.

3. Eat a balanced diet

No matter how many miles you run, you cannot cancel out a bad diet with exercise. The foods you consume set the environment for how your body operates. The body needs fuel from fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, vitamins, minerals, lean proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, and water in order to perform at its best.

4. Solidify your support system

When creating your health plan, it is important that you are surrounded by people who truly support your health journey. Your intellectual health support team should possess a thorough knowledge of your family history and help you gain access to resources. Your social health support system should encourage social activity, possess knowledge of any pressure triggers, and know-how to de-escalate those triggers.
