The Core Health Essentials to Health
With Dr Matthew Bateman (Doctor of Chiropractic)
Welcome to the Core Essentials to Health column. Last month’s column covered psychological stress and this month’s column focuses on my favourite, physical wellbeing.
Very simple levels such as 20 minutes of active exercise daily can make you 50% less likely to have diabetes, 30% less chance of heart disease and 30% less likely to suffer from depression or dementia. So obviously even low levels of exercise not only helps us physically but also mentally. Sticking to long term exercise is a problem that I see in my patients regularly. You need goals that are achievable for you and then enjoy fulfilling them. Goals can be as simple as walking the dog daily or tough as running a marathon, it must fit around your current lifestyle so you can plan it at the beginning of the week and execute it by the end. You goal can be integrated into your current schedule like walking your children to school or even going to the gym in your lunch hour. The key aspect is to then celebrate your goal! Tell people about your achievement and then set a new goal. My wife ran the Brighton Marathon but after race day, her running stopped. So now she has set another goal of a 12 week fitness plan and is enjoying executing her new goals. Don’t make excuses, remember the satisfaction after going to the gym, walking to dog or swimming and make that feeling a priority in your life.
Combined exercise, psychological happiness and nutrition can help you to be healthier and happier. Next month you can learn simple easy methods to introduce new and fun healthy eating to your lifestyle.
