When it comes to our health, we need to look at the bigger picture. However, so many of us don’t think of our health as the entire package. So what can we do to make sure that we are looking at our health in terms of the bigger picture?
Stick to Those Check-Ups!
Whether you think you don’t need to get your teeth checked or everything seems alright in yourself, the fact of the matter is that going for dental services check-ups or to your medical practitioner for some simple blood tests will be the best way for you to make sure that you are in good working order. We need to look at ourselves as if we are a car. It’s not just about one aspect working fantastically, but about making sure that everything is working in tandem. Because after all, if you haven’t got a wheel, that car is not going to move!
Check-In With Your Body
One of the simplest ways to view our health more comprehensively is to have a little check-in. Sitting quietly and paying attention from top to toe if there’s anything that’s not quite right will make a significant difference going forward but also it allows us to take those moments to address any issues that we wouldn’t necessarily notice if we were too busy. It’s something that we can do every single day, and it only takes a few minutes just to close our eyes and pay attention.
Write Down How You’re Feeling
Health is not just about the physical or emotional, but it’s about everything together. We need to break down the walls associated with each component because it is all connected. After all, if you experience stress, it’s going to affect you physically. By taking the opportunity to write down how you are feeling, it allows you to look at your thoughts, in the real world and see if you need to tell people. Some people call it having a brain dump, others like to write in a diary. Whatever it is for you, understanding how you are feeling is going to help you get to the root cause of what makes you tick.
Use What You’ve Got
We have to remember that our brains and bodies were built for use. But everybody is guilty of trying to conserve their brain energy, or feel that they’ve done too much and just want to sit down at the end of a hard day. Nobody is begrudging you this, but we have to remember that our bodies and brains were built to be used. And everybody has their own physical ailments that whether you are experiencing something like asthma symptoms or you are feeling mentally drained, it’s important to remember that for our bodies and brains to build back stronger, we’ve got to fatigue them, but also rest appropriately.
Health is not just about one component, but about everything working together. It’s important that we start to look at our health as an entire package because everything is connected.
