Eat the Right Food, or at least Try to

There is no more important phrase than that of ‘you are what you eat’. What we put into our bodies has a huge effect on our physical bodies, our guts and our mood. Most people do not fully appreciate the extent of the relationship between mind and body. Therefore, you actually will feel worse if you are eating unhealthy food constantly. The best place to start on your health journey is to educate yourself on food. This is easier said than done. Despite this, there are many free resources online that help to teach about the basic foodstuff. Start basic and work your way through, it is a process that will not be completed in one day. It may never be completed, even the most advanced dieticians are still learning about food.

Start a New Sport

Getting active is the other thing that is a must. Your body is made to move, when you sit idle for too long your body does not know what is happening. It cannot function properly in this situation. Half an hour of light exercises a day is a good starting place. This can be anything from going for a walk, a swim or a run depending on your fitness level. Do not start too fast too soon. Remember, this is a lifestyle switch, you do not want to grow sick of it by making it too intense before you are ready. Therefore, one of the best things to do to incorporate activity into your life is to start a new sport. Why not pick up rock climbing, skateboarding or Flag Football with Coach D.
