Today, I want to talk about the health triangle and how to balance it. There are three points on the health triangle, physical, mental, and social. First, we will talk about the point of physical.
When we talk about physical, we are talking about exercise, of course, and nutrition. We are also talking about doctor and dentist visits. All of those things are going to the point of physical.
When we think about exercise, we need to talk about consistent exercise. It needs to be consistent, at least four days a week. If you do the same thing every day, what’s going to happen is you will get bored, and you’re going to want to be done with it.
Do different things; you don’t always want to work your legs, you don’t always want to work your arms, you don’t want to do cardio every day. As I said, it’s going to get boring, and you’ve got to switch it out; your muscles need time to recover.
Find an Accountability Partner
Find an accountability partner with whom you can work, work out, and do home exercises. I’ve been posting a lot of accessible at-home workouts that you don’t need anything for but a little bit of floor space. However, having an accountability partner is crucial.
Good Nutrition and Alcohol in Moderation
When it comes to nutrition, we always talk about when you go to the store shopping the perimeter. We’ve talked about this before; what happens when you shop in the middle of the store? You look at the boxes, and there are long expiration dates. What does that mean?
That means it’s full of preservatives that your body cannot metabolize. So we don’t want those kinds of things. Good nutrition, alcohol in moderation. Again, that will be a massive part of this nutrition thing; you have to look for that physical point.
Get Adequate Sleep
We need adequate sleep. We need at least seven hours of sleep every night. If you’re exercising regularly, you’ve got good nutrition. You’re getting sufficient sleep; what’s going to happen is that it will be easier to maintain your weight. You’re a much happier and healthier person when you sleep well.
The next point we will learn about is the mental health point. We’re going to talk about thoughts, feelings, emotions; all of those things will comprise your mental mindset. How do you deal with these things when it comes to emotions, stress, and anxiety? You have to find a way to deal with them.
If your mindset is not on point, these things will start deteriorating. Then it’s going to throw you off with the other points of your health triangle as well. You have to maintain a positive attitude and surround yourself with positive people who lift you up. Remember, I say this all the time, but misery loves company, do not get sucked into that hole.
Stress and Anxiety
Another thing we will learn about is stress and anxiety. If you are full of stress and anxiety, your hair will fall out. That is a big thing that happens with stressed people because it goes into nutrition, and it all spirals when you’re stressed.
If you guys are interested in learning more about those things, please let me know. I personally take collagen every day, and it helps with hair growth, but it also helps with your joints. If you’re somebody that exercises regularly, then collagen is the key. If you’re interested in learning more, let me know, I can always pop you a sample of what I’ve been using.
The last point I want you to learn about is social relationships. This is your family, friends, coworkers, or anybody you meet. How do you communicate with these people? How do you show up? Are they happy when you show up to the room? Are they thrilled when you leave? Think about that.
How do you communicate with them? Not just the way you talk with them, it’s your body language as well, the way you show up. It’s those expressions on your face that go back to the mental point. Not only that, but how are you making new relationships? How are you maintaining your current relationships?
All these things take work, but we have to do them consistently. Like all of these points, what will happen if we don’t keep an equal balance? Everything’s going to be out of whack. How will you keep an equal balance between your physical, mental, and social points? It does take work, yes. In the end, though, a well-balanced person will be much happier and healthier.
