There Are Some Easy Ways To Be Healthier

Did you know that there are some easy ways to be healthier? We all want to feel good and be healthy – but as women we are givers and caretakers – it's just part of who we are naturally. And many times – most of us do this so often that we don't even realize we're doing it – and in the process we lose track of taking care of ourselves. Over time we can even get used to some of the little aches and pains, the fatigue and stress, you know what I mean, we can convince ourselves that those things are just part of being a little older or whatever.

But the thing is – in many cases those aches and pains are indicators of other things. So the first thing I am going to suggest to help you get healthier and feel better is to go get a check up. From there you will have a real starting point. You will know how your blood pressure and other major concerns like cholesterol levels are, and of course, you will know how much you weigh as well as other basics.

Eating Right To Be Healthier

This will provide you with the information you need to get going on any diet or fitness plan. Moving beyond that you can also now work on developing healthy eating plans. This is the ideal time to do that since you know how your baseline health is and your doctor undoubtedly told you if there are any specific foods you need to avoid. So work out some healthy menus and start eating better so you can be healthier.

Exercise To Be Healthier

If you do not exercise regularly this is also the ideal time to work on that. Even if you don't want to add a regular exercise routine into your daily life you could do little things that can add up to making a big difference in the long run. Do something that seems insignificant like stop using the remotes to the TV and other electronic equipment. Don't keep your cell phone next to you when you're at home, force yourself to have to get up and walk. Start with small things like that and work your way up to larger forms of exercise. Even a little exercise can help you be healthier over time.

Reducing Stress To Be Healthier

A  Work on eliminating some or most of the stress from your life. This can be a difficult challenge but it is definitely worthwhile. Try to remove some of the negative elements that hold you back. This might be clutter, it could be bills, or it could be people or stressful situations. Just take them one at a time and do the best you can. But also realize that you are only human and there is a limit to what you can control – just keep in mind that believing in yourself is often all it takes to succeed.

Clutter, Cleanliness, And Your Health

As mentioned above, clutter can hold you back. I happen to enjoy decorating using Feng Shui – though if you would see my house half the time you would never believe it! :) But Feng Shui has a focus on allowing positive energy to flow through. When there is clutter the energy is blocked. Clutter is negative. Anything negative can result in tension, unrest and stress. De-clutter your home and get organized. You may be surprised at the results. Your home will  look better, you'll feel better about your home, and you may even have more time, and you will probably feel better too – in the end – you will be healthier in multiple ways.

Another related issue is cleanliness. Germs can lead to illness. The truth is though, you have little to worry about in your own home when it comes to germs. But to be on the safe side when you are in public and use things like a shopping cart, a public phone, ATMs, etc. – it's a very good idea to have wet wipes or hand sanitizer available to clean your hands afterward – of course, if possible, avoid touching public surfaces. That's it  – these are all easy ways to be healthier!

    • First of all – thanks for your kind words!

      To try to deal with spam I use various WP plugins, including the captcha. Just search for WordPress plugins that block spam. You will find lots of options available. Some seem to work better than others – but definitely set your blog up so you can moderate all comments before they are posted to your site. I think it’s nearly impossible to catch all spam but through moderation you stand a much better chance of eliminating at least the ones with profanity or links to porn sites.

      You can visit my website at http://www.InternetDivaDeb.com for more information about how to set up a blog, etc. But actually, http://www.ProBlogger.net is the best place to learn about blogging. :)

      Best of luck!

  5. Być może jesteÅ› w stanie mi pomóc: robiÄ™ blog: jakkolwiek na inny temat, mimo to nie to jest naturÄ… mojego pytania: najwiÄ™kszy problem mam ze Å›mieciowymi postami i nie za bardzo jestem w stanie sobie z tym poradzić… WidzÄ™, że Twój blog jest estetyczny i wyraźnie nie masz tego problemu.

    • Hello and thanks for your feedback. I’m really glad you like the site. If I understood your question correctly I think you wanted to know how to avoid some of the spam comments. Personally I use plugins that help – the captcha seems to make a difference and I moderate before comments are posted. If I notice a continued problem I will report the abuser to the appropriate authorities. So far I haven’t had to do that but you never know – I have a friend that has used that tactic and it does work very well in decreasing spam comments. I want my readers to provide comments and to participate at this site, but the spam just adds more work for me and makes the site ugly with the wasted comments – especially when they include links to inappropriate sites. Anyway – I’m very glad you enjoy my blog and I hope you will visit often! :)

    • I’m not really sure that I understand that comment completely but I am very happy that you visit the site. I hope you will return often! :)

    • Thanks – I’m still looking for the ‘right’ design theme for this site. I have lots of ideas but it still hasn’t completely come together yet.

  6. TX a lot 4 taking the time to handle this, I believe strongly it and like learning more on this content. If potential, as you attain expertise, would you think about updating your web log with more content? It is highly useful for me.

  7. How-do-you-do, i read your blog often and i own an similar one and i used to be simply curious if you get much of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you’ll be able to advise? I get thus often lately it’s driving me sick so any help is very abundant appreciated. for older folks, retirement or a huge promotion at work is a time when celebration events are going to be a great idea.

    • There are lots of plugins available – the captchas seem to help – but if you notice a problem and want to you can report the offender – they can lose their hosting/server account and be fined. Spam can be a real concern and it is now being taking very seriously when reported.

  8. I can see that you are an someone in this subject. I am beginning a site soon, and your info will be very helpful for me.. Thanks for all your help and wish you all the success in your business.

  9. Być może jesteÅ› w mocy mnie wesprzeć: tworzÄ™ blog: aczkolwiek w innej dziedzinie, tymczasem nie to jest konkretem poniższego pytania: wielki problem mam ze Å›mieciowymi postami i nie za bardzo potrafiÄ™ sobie z tym dać rady… ZauważyÅ‚em, że ten blog jest schludny i ewidentnie tÄ… kwestiÄ…. Jakim sposobem to robisz? Z góry dziÄ™kujÄ™ za oddźwiÄ™k na Twoim blogu. BTW: nadzwyczaj fajna stronka :)

    • Hello,

      I’m so glad you like the site – I hope I am understanding your questions correctly… In order to come up with topics I simply use the things that interest me. This blog is focused on things that matter to me. I love writing on these topics. I get ideas from magazines, my friends and family, and even TV programs. I’m a writer so writing is a passion – staying focused can be an issue at times :) so I sometimes have to remind myself what the purpose of each post really is. Otherwise I find that I ramble on relentlessly. Thanks for your feedback! :)
