But I'm waiting for my test results

I hear a lot people talk about waiting for their medical test results or to see ‘the specialist’.

Whilst this information and the insights may be very useful and or important, I think there is something even more important being missed:

What are we doing to get healthier now?

Regardless of our state of health, the condition of our career or our relationships, I think this is a foundational question:

What are we doing to get healthier now?

I mention this because I meet many people who seem to put their life on hold or to freeze what they are doing…because they are waiting for something… or waiting for someone to tell them that they are ok before they act.

The deep shame with this approach is that we miss valuable time where we could be progressing and improving ourselves; ultimately enjoying our life more.

I think that it is obvious, though taken for granted, that without our health and vibrant energy we don’t have much. And it comes down to:

What are we doing to get healthier now?

If you’ve read my blog before then you’ll know I like to keep thing super simple, so here are a few simple ways you can improve your health today (up for a challenge, do as many as you can each day!).

1.     Get more sleep! Aim for 8-9 hours. So many studies show how this is important for our brain, organ and mental/emotional health.

2.     Drink more water- 2 litres of fresh, clean filtered water at least (try it and see what happens to your energy level)

3.     Move your body every day – even a 30 minute walk outside will do you wonders

4.     Have big blocks of time everyday without your mobile phone(or just turn off the alerts, beeps and vibrations). Regularly checking our mobiles makes us use a part of our brain that is highly involved in the stress response!

5.     Dosome SRI (free link here) and or get your spine and nervous system checked. It has been my ‘secret wellness weapon’ for over 10 years now and I wouldn’t be without it (and nor are my wife and kids).

There has never been a better time to be alive in my opinion, because we now live in an age where anyone can positively impact so many people from the comfort of their own home. Our potential has never been so easily ‘expressable’, and judging by the world around us this may never have been so important.

Whatever your situation, there are people around you who likely could hugely benefit from you being at your best. Your health is the foundation for that.

So, all together now:

What are you doing to get healthier now?

To your health and well-being,
