Act today, enjoy tomorrow

Act today, enjoy tomorrow.

What actions are you taking today to maintain good health and prevent illness and trouble in the future?

A good friend of mine often tells me, “I need to get home and take care of my money maker!” I always chuckle, but her intention to get home, go to bed early and take care of herself always fills me with joy. She knows, if we don’t take care of ourselves physically and spiritually, we can’t take care of others and we can’t be our best selves at our jobs, whether it is working at home, from home, or in an office somewhere. In fact, if we don’t take care of ourselves on a daily basis, there are a lot of things we can’t do well and won’t be able to do in the future.*

We all have heard the famous quote by Benjamin Franklin, “…An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…”. He said this in regards to fires threatening Philadelphia in 1736. Preventing a fire is a lot easier than extinguishing one once it starts. Over the years, this phrase has been applied to so many situations, including health. Disease and illness are kind of like a fire. It is a lot better to prevent it from happening than trying to come back from it once it has started.1*

There are so many easy ways to protect ourselves today to prevent trouble in the future! Being proactive in our daily lives can really pay off in the long run.

Let’s start with taking care of our guts. At the core of good health is a healthy gut. When the microbiome gets out of balance, whether it be too much unfriendly bacteria brought on by antibiotic use, poor diet, or an overload of stress, it can throw our whole system out of whack. In extreme cases of Candida overgrowth, it can really take some time and serious diet and lifestyle change to come back from that. The simple and easy steps of taking Body Biotics Bio-identical SBO Probiotics Consortia regularly and getting plenty of fiber and fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet can protect and fortify your gut. If we do the opposite, eat junk food, overindulge in alcohol regularly, are over-stressed, we can find ourselves at a precipice that is hard to get back from. Don’t let yourself get to that place. Take a proactive approach to good gut health daily.*.

Regular wellness checks are another way you can protect yourself. Procedures like dental cleanings, mammograms, annual physicals…all these things help to protect you from serious illness by catching things early. Getting regular colonoscopies? Don’t put this stuff off. If you catch colon cancer early, it is very treatable. If you let it go, it is not. This applies to many other forms of cancer as well. It is scary to get checked out sometimes, but ignoring it doesn’t do you any good.*

How about diet and exercise? Are you preventing yourself from becoming obese by following a healthy diet and exercising daily? We know this prevents diabetes and heart disease and mental decline as well. It is tough to make yourself do it, but a morning walk for thirty minutes or longer does wonders for your long-term health. Lightweight training prevents your muscles from atrophy. Every day commit at least 30 minutes to get your heart pumping.*

Your mental health is so important! Taking time for yourself to just breathe and think and daydream is essential for a healthy brain and peace of mind. Exercising helps with this as well. Laughing, spending time with people you enjoy, reading a book for pure entertainment, or playing with your pet. All these things keep your mind happy and healthy.*

Don’t forget to protect your skin! It is the only skin you have and it is also your biggest organ. Don’t damage it by spending too much time in the sun without the proper protective clothing or sunscreen. Skin cancer is also preventable by avoiding too many UV rays. Take care of your skin not only to prevent skin cancer but also to prevent premature wrinkles and aging.

Protect your relationships and think before your speak. It seems lately folks are just blurting out their opinions left and right (literally) without thinking about how it might make someone else feel or how it might be hurtful to their friends, family, and neighbors. There has always been the manner code of don’t discuss certain things in mixed company and there is a reason for that. Certain topics are so heated that it surely ends in arguments. Check your words and opinions before they come out of your mouth. Once said, you can’t take them back. Preventing an argument is a lot easier than making up one.*

How are you preventing yourself from catching the new delta variant of the coronavirus?  Whether you are vaccinated, social distancing, or masking up, it is better to not get it than end up possibly hospitalized and trying to fight your way back from a ventilator.*

Simple choices in life can really make a difference. Each day we are faced with them and make choices that can affect us for the rest of our lives. Wearing a bike helmet, putting on a seat belt, taking an Uber after a night of cocktails, locking your car doors at night…all of these things can help us avoid serious consequences that are so easily preventable. And when it comes to your health, it can make the difference between a long and healthy life versus a life of prescriptions, aches and pains, and suffering. Choose wisely! I know you will.*

Take care of your money maker…that is you!

Healthiest wishes,

Kelli
