The Core Essentials to Health
With Dr Matthew Bateman (Doctor of Chiropractic)
Welcome to the Core Essentials to Health column. This monthly column can teach you how to live a healthier life. The three main factors that contribute to your health are psychological stress, physical wellbeing and nutrition. This month we are focusing on how to maintain a positive mind-set during your daily activities.
Psychological happiness is important because stress can make you more susceptible to depression, heart disease and weight gain. Nobody is completely stress free and you may have it during your commute, office politics or even from certain family members. Many of us have finished a hard day, come home, had a glass of wine and continued to allow the days stress effect your mind-set. After leaving a stressful environment you can change this negative attitude and re-set your mind-set. Some people choose to meditate, listen to cheerful music or play with their children. Personally I choose to exercise, often I run home from work while listening to health and fitness podcasts. This positive task allows for endorphins to be released in my system, it improves my mood and helps my brain function away from work. The immediate self-satisfaction makes me happy to go on into my next task of the day. You may be different but you can find that task that can help you re-set your mind-set. This may be a 10minute fitness video, bathing your children or taking your partner on date night however find what activity works for you and make it a priority. This will help you move forward in a positive psychological state.
Read next month we will let you know a few secrets to committing to long term exercise plans and making a positive change in your life.
