With all the concerns swirling regarding cold/ flu season as well as the approaching start of school, I wanted to take a moment and revisit the elements of healthy living especially when it comes to the prevention of disease.
Stop for a moment and take this little survey to help highlight areas that may be out of balance in your health:
I get an average of 8 hours of sleep per night.
▢ Yes ▢ No
I drink half my body weight in ounces of water daily.
▢ Yes ▢ No
I would report my stress level as low.
(2-4/10 *10 worst)
▢ Yes ▢ No
I am intentionally active at least 20 minutes/day.
▢ Yes ▢ No
I eat mainly whole foods, avoiding packaged or processed foods.
▢ Yes ▢ No

You probably already figured out the answer to all these questions should be a resounding “yes!” But if you are missing the mark on even a couple, you may want to re-evaluate your priorities to include your health.
So, how do you compensate for years of an unhealthy lifestyle? Listen to our wise predecessors:
“Overwork and lack of sleep reduce the vitality in an astonishingly short time and render one peculiarly susceptible to colds. Indulging too freely in a hearty dinner…the free use of alcoholic beverages paralyzes the vasomotor mechanism of the skin, and renders one peculiarly susceptible to colds…TREATMENT – PREVENTIVE – any measure that builds up the system and increases vital resistance…Sufficient refreshing sleep, wholesome food, and an active condition of the eliminative organs will insure against colds.”

My takeaway is this: prioritize your health now before it forces you to take notice (ie. Chronic disease or hospitalization).
