HEALTH & WELLNESS
It would be difficult to have a blog about recovering, especially from something like cancer, without speaking about health. After all, besides your emotions and your finances this is what is most affected. I have been told on various occasions since this struggle started that part of healing is "being kind to you". This could be taken as not being so hard on yourself, but more importantly this means taking care of yourself. I mean come on, the first four letters of health are h-e-a-l.
We've all heard it said "health is wealth". Well, it's true. Spend your health on gaining wealth and you could end up using your wealth to regain your health. So please, from someone who has come through a lot the past few years- take care of yourself! Your health involves more than just eating right. It's exercising and getting enough sleep.
I know all these things sound like a luxury because of the hectic lives most of us lead. I'm not wanting to give a lecture on diet or exercise, just share some helpful things I've found along my own journey that I hope may also be helpful to others.
( I am not judging anyone just sharing healthy adjustments that I have made, or sharing practical things that helped me on my own journey)
I've always been a little bit of what you could call a healthnut- donuts and soda were never to be found in my home growing up. My family always believed in the basics. Opting out on white for wheat, choosing sugar free when it came to anything sweet, not drinking carbonated drinks, or eating too much fast food.
Even as a young working adult with my own family these basics stuck with me.
Things like smoothies, soups, salads, and sandwiches were always something I enjoyed.
So prior to my recent health crisis I was eating fairly healthy already.
But as I have found recently there was major room for improvement.
So here are a few "Gems" I've stumbled upon. Do your own research, give a few things a try and do what works for you. But you are worth the investment and your health and your family's health is worth the extra effort. Our loved ones should be our greatest motivation.
My aim to be in better health is for my beautiful son. He will grow stronger, faster, and be more active the older he gets.
That being said I do not want to let myself get weaker, slower, and more run down.
I want to get better and recover and keep in step with him.
